|Performance Technologies Introduces 64-bit AMD Opteron™ Processor-Based High-Performance Single Board Computer|
ROCHESTER, N.Y. - -Performance Technologies today introduced the CPC5564 Single Board Computer. The CPC5564, the world’s first CompactPCI® 2.16 blade computer based on 64-bit, single- and Dual-core AMD Opteron™ processors, is part of Performance Technologies’ next-generation compute products built for high-end telecommunications, defense and homeland security, and commercial applications.
The AMD Opteron processor provides a highly scalable x86 architecture that delivers next-generation performance as well as a flexible upgrade path from 32- to 64-bit computing. Its true multi-core architecture offers immediate, cost-effective technology to address today’s processor design challenges—reducing heat and power consumption, by-products that occur at continually advancing single core processor clock speeds.
Designed to run Linux, Solaris™ and Windows® operating systems, the CPC5564 is the ideal computer for high-end packet processing or multi-threaded software applications found in wireless, softswitch, defense and other compute-intensive applications.
“The AMD Opteron processor helps break through today’s single-core performance limitations with its Direct Connect Architecture and multi-core design, providing a significant increase in per-slot processing power for embedded applications,” said David Rich, director of 64-bit Embedded Markets, AMD. “Performance Technologies’ CPC5564 will help drive the next generation of high-performance embedded products designed to meet the high compute needs of today’s equipment manufacturers and system integrators.”
The CPC5564 is designed for use with Performance Technologies’ complete line of Advanced Managed Platform™ products. The Advanced Managed Platform is the basis of a family of application-ready, fully managed platforms, allowing system designers to build NEBS-compliant, highly reliable solutions that combine state-of-the-art switching, system management, and a full line of slot components and software.
“With the CPC5564, Performance Technologies provides equipment manufacturers and system integrators with the industry’s most powerful and efficient processing solution,” said Tony Romero, product manager for Performance Technologies. “The architecture of the AMD Opteron processor enables us to provide a highly flexible, performance-driven solution.”
Key features of the CPC5564:
* Two 64-Bit AMD Opteron processor options
o Single core 2.2 GHz
Dual core 1.8GHz 2GB, 4GB or 8GB memory options
* * PICMG 2.16 and PICMG 2.9 (IPMI) compatible
