The SBC620s processor node features Intels latest processors and server chipset, delivering impressive system level performance per watt. The Intel Core 2 Duo (Penryn) Processor is Intels second generation dual core processor. This processor is designed to deliver low power and efficient breakthrough performance and responsiveness for demanding embedded market applications. The performance of this processor enables it to concurrently execute multiple threads and run multiple intense applications simultaneously.The VPX form factor allows for high speed PCI Express connections to other cards in the system. SBC620 supports this high speed I/O with the Intel 5100 chipset (San Clemente) providing superior on-board I/O paths In the form of four x4 PCIe lanes to the PMC/XMC expansion sites, and sends a x8 PCIe lane to a PCIe switch that routes four x4 PCIe lanes to the P1 backplane connector.The SBC620 provides a number of high speed interfaces for off-board communication, including two Gigabit Ethernet ports, six USB 2.0 ports and two Serial ATA disk interfaces. In addition, there is support for legacy interfaces, including two RS232/422 ports, and eight general purpose I/O lines.Available in five air- and conduction-cooled build levels, the SBC620 is fully supported by comprehensive Deployed Test Software (BIT and BCS).
