New Kontron ATCA and AMC boards

Kontron announces new ATCA and AMC boards:

Kontron AT8001

Kontron AT8001

AT8001 – flexibility of dual AMC support
The Kontron AT8001 ATCA processor board significantly increases the design options for wireless, telecom applications with its support for two AMC module slots. Powered by a low voltage, high performance Intelâ Xeonâ processor up to 2.8 GHz, the AT8001 provides high interconnect performance, ideally suited to support any number of high throughput I/O communications modules.


The AT8001 feature-set includes dual Gigabit Ethernet and dual Fiber Channel on fabric interface, dual Gigabit Ethernet base interface, 8 GB of DDR-II 400 SDRAM, plus MontaVista Linux Carrier Grade Edition (CGE) and IPMI v1.5 support.

AM4001 – superior processing and flexible interconnect topologies
The Kontron AM4001 AMC module features the low power, high performance of an Intel Pentium M processor up to 2 GHz and the Intel E7320 chipset. Designed to support up to 4 GB DDR-II memory (PC400), the AM4001 is available in single width, full and half-height options, and offers dual Gigabit Ethernet, dual Serial ATA, and x4 PCI-Express interconnects in compliance with AMC.0/.1/.2/.3 specifications.

When combined with the AT8001, the AM4001 handles the dual responsibility of managing both high throughput I/O applications as well as off-loading any surplus processing demands from the AT8001 processor board. The result is a unique combination of high functionality and processor muscle on only one single slot 8U board, which can also be used to populate the Kontron ATCA-compliant 12U chassis, the XL8000, with up to 14 board slots available on a dual star backplane.
