Kontron (Poway, CA) introduces the CP3210 rugged conduction-cooled 3U CompactPCI® CPU board. The CPU board offers a clock rate of 733 MHz and DDR SDRAM of 226 MHz. The CP3210 incorporates a thermal sensor for health monitoring and thermal management. The 3U CompactPCI® CPU board is designed to meet the harshest and most demanding requirements through its very low-power dissipation, real-time and certifiable software support, and conduction- cooled design.

The Kontron CP3210 CompactPCI® CPU board offers a range of standard functions and expansion options including the new PowerPC G3 750FX RISC processor clocked at 733 MHz, onboard user memory of 512 MB DDR SDRAM with ECC clocked at 266 MHz, 128 MB of System Flash memory, 256 MB of User Flash memory, and 128 KB of nvSRAM with realclock. It also offers two onboard serial lines, two Ethernet channels (one Gigabit and one 10/100), and one 33/66 MHz PMC expansion slot (PCI Mezzanine Card). An additional PMC can be implemented via the rugged PMC carrier CPMC1. The CP3210 has reliable operation in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +85°C according to VITA 47 recommendations.
