Increased Computing Performance in New CompactPCI Serial SBC from MEN Micro

Press Release   •   Feb 08, 2013 10:56 EST


AMBLER, Pa. February 2013 – MEN Micro Inc., a world-renowned provider
of embedded computing and I/O solutions for mission-critical industrial, mobile
and harsh environment applications, offers its latest 3U CompactPCI Serial SBC, the G22.

 

With speeds up to 3.3 GHz using
Turbo Boost functionality, the new Intel Quad Core i7-based board provides
exceptional processing performance in data-intensive environments. The G22 also
provides high graphics performance as well as state-of-the-art I/O
functionality.

 

As the second CompactPCI
Serial-based SBC from MEN Micro, the G22 enables fast serial data transfers up
to 12 Gb/s and full mesh capabilities without additional configuration
overhead.


The G22 is perfectly suited for
applications requiring high computing power, as typically found in
transportation, industrial automation or power generation applications.

Support of a Trusted Platform
Module ensures data security and the Intel Active Management Technology allows
easy maintenance, making the G22 single board computer a robust solution in
safety-critical applications with high computing performance.

 

Using the BIOS, the processor
frequency can also be stepped down in order to lower the power consumption
below the default 45 W, allowing the board to be used in applications with
higher temperatures.

 

The integrated graphics processor,
supporting a resolution of up to 2560x1600 pixels, transfers the desired
content in HD format via two front DisplayPorts, which can also be used as HDMI
or DVI connections using an external adapter. Additional front panel I/O
includes two Ethernet and two USB interfaces.

 

At the rear, four USB 3.0, four USB
2.0, two 3rd generation SATA and three 2nd generation SATA ports are standard,
in addition to a Display or HDMI port, five PCI Express x1 and two PEG x8
ports.

 

With added mezzanine modules, four,
or possibly all, of the eight Gigabit Ethernet interfaces specified in the
CompactPCI Serial standard can be led to the backplane. Further expansion is
accommodated through mSATA and microSD card slots.

 

The G22 comes with 4 or 8 GB of soldered
DDR3 DRAM, complete with ECC. All components are soldered to withstand heavy
shock and vibration and conformal coating protects the 3U SBC from dust and
humidity.  Watchdogs monitor the
processor and board temperature.

 

Pricing for the G22 is $3,008 USD.  Delivery is six to eight weeks ARO.
