Kontrons CP6012, a 6U CompactPCI CPU board with Intel Core Duo processor T2500 (2 GHz), meets the highest performance demands. With its E7520 and 6300ESB chipset, it handles data throughput like a server. Compared to Intel Pentium M, dual-core technology allows approximately twice the performance at similar power consumption. The PICMG 2.16-compliant Kontron CP6012 is designed for bandwidth-intensive applications and, thanks to hot-swap support and IPMI (PICMG 2.9-compliant Intelligent Platform Management Interface) meets the highest demands for the management of high-availability applications. The CP6012 offers a high degree of integration and the latest interface technologies such as PCI Express, up to 4 GB/400 MHz DDR2 SODIMM RAM (6.4 GB/sec throughput) and 2x fast Serial-ATA interfaces including hard drive on board as well as a CompactFlash slot. Four Gigabit Ethernet interfaces via PCI Express (two to the backplane / two front-side), max. 4x USB 2.0, 1xCOM, VGA, and rear I/O support round out the feature set.
