Network Power Launches Three New Embedded Computing Platforms Powered by Next-Generation Intel® Core™ Processors



Tempe, Ariz. [January 7, 2010] – Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity™, today announced three new embedded computing platforms powered by the latest Intel® Core™ i7 and Intel® Core™ i5 processors, which were launched today by Intel®.

These new embedded computing platforms are available in a range of form factors, including COM Express®, MicroATX and 6U VME and Emerson Network Power will continue to add more form factors. Emerson Network Power is rapidly growing its portfolio of long-life, reliable, Intel processor-based products for a wide variety of industries including retail, industrial automation, medical and military/aerospace applications. The Intel® Core™ i7 and Intel® Core™ i5 processors use next-generation 32 nanometer manufacturing process technology, providing system integrators with significant increases in performance and energy efficiency.

“The launch of Emerson Network Power’s first VMEbus platform to feature an Intel processor represents our ongoing portfolio diversification to support a broad range of industries,” said Paul Virgo, director of marketing, Embedded Computing, Emerson Network Power. “Coupled with new embedded motherboards that are closely aligned with availability of the latest silicon and over 30 years experience in the industry, Emerson continues to be the clear choice for reliable, long life embedded computing products.”

“By introducing several new platforms based on the new Intel® Core™ i7 and i5 processors, Emerson Network Power expands their portfolio of Intel processor-based motherboards, modules and platforms,” said Ryan Parker, director of marketing, Embedded Computing Division, Intel. “These new platforms provide system integrators with the performance and features needed to power a wide variety of next-generation embedded solutions.”

COMX-CORE Series COM Express modules

Based on the Type 6 COM Express R2.0 form factor (95 by 125 mm), the COMX-CORE-7X0 and COMX-CORE-5X0 feature Intel® Core™ i7 processor 2.0 GHz and 1.06 GHz variants or the Intel® Core™ i5 processor at 2.4 GHz and the mobile Intel® QM57 Express chipset. Two SO-DIMM (non-ECC) sockets can accommodate up to 8GB DDR3 memory and an optional eUSB flash module extends on-module storage. Connectivity includes one PCI Express x16 and seven PCI Express x1 expansion sockets, one Gigabit Ethernet, four SATA and eight USB 2.0 ports. Emerson Network Power’s new COM Express modules support dual simultaneous displays without the need for an additional graphics card.

MATXM-CORE-411-B MicroATX motherboard

This next-generation Emerson Network Power MicroATX motherboard (244 by 244 mm) features Intel® Core™ i7 processor variants up to 2.66 GHz, the mobile Intel® QM57 Express chipset and two SO-DIMM sockets for up to 8GB DDR3 memory. Connectivity includes one PCI Express x16, three PCI Express x1 expansion sockets and a PCI Express Mini Card socket for WiFi/WiMAX wireless connections. PoweredUSB ports are suitable for powering devices such as bar code scanners and POS printers without additional power supplies. The motherboard supports dual simultaneous displays with HDMI, VGA and dual channel LVDS connections for high resolution output. An optional midplane enables easy, cost-effective maintenance.

iVME7210 6U VMEbus board

Featuring Intel® Core™ i7 processor variants up to 2.0 GHz and the mobile Intel® QM57 Express chipset, Emerson Network Power’s new iVME7210 is designed for a range of industrial, medical and military/aerospace applications including robotics, image processing, radar/sonar, C4ISR and signal intelligence. On-board memory includes up to 8GB DDR3 memory and 256KB non-volatile Ferroelectric Random Access Memory (FeRAM). FeRAM does not require batteries or periodic refreshes and offers many more read/write cycles and faster performance than flash memory, which benefits critical non-volatile data storage, data logs and dynamic program updates. Connectivity includes four Gigabit Ethernet ports, up to five USB 2.0 ports, five serial ports, two SATA ports and dual XMC sites or one XMC site plus SATA HDD.

The board’s Digital Visual Interface (DVI) provides support for high quality digital graphics and the integrated Trusted Platform Module enhances data security and encryption capabilities. The iVME7210 supports a range of operating system and software options including Wind River VxWorks, Linux and LynuxWorks LynxOS. Extended temperature and rugged versions will be available via Emerson Network Power alliance partners.
