CD1-OPERA

CompactPCI  Mobile Pentium® 4 CPU
CompactFlash, USB 2.0, 3 x Gigabit Ethernet and DVI-I Graphics on-Board



Equipped with the Intel® Mobile Pentium® 4 - M Processor up to 2.2GHz, the CD1-OPERA is a powerful 6U (double size Eurocard) CompactPCI® CPU board.

The board is provided with the chipset 845G(V), which contains an embedded graphics controller. The DVI-I interface allows for attachment of both, advanced (digital) and legacy (analog) flat panel displays and CRT monitors. The mobile 0.13u processor reduces the power consumption considerably, thus enabling a reliable passive heatsink for thermal discharge.

Three 2.0 USB ports allow for plug & play attachment of a variety of peripheral devices. For high speed networking up to 1000Mbps, the CD1-OPERA is equipped with three independent triple-speed Gigabit Ethernet controllers. The PICMG® 2.16 standard (Ethernet over CPCI backplane) is also supported.



As mass storage interface, the CD1-OPERA comes equipped with an Ultra ATA/100 connector. In addition, a receptacle for ATA CompactFlash cards allows utilization of a silicon disk. The main memory is a SO-DIMM 200 form factor DDR-SDRAM module of up to 1GB capacity. The PCI bridge allows for configuring of the CD1-OPERA as a CompactPCI system slot controller, or peripheral slot board in multi-processor applications. Alternatively, either one PMC card socket, or two PC•MIP mezzanine module slots, or a 2.5-inch hard disk module enable on-board expansion of the CD1-OPERA. A local PXI controller is provided for measuring and testing applications. The Phoenix BIOS is maintained by EKF. In this way custom specific enhancements can be realized.

The CD1-OPERA is a high performance industrial CPU, suitable for stand-alone applications as well as large CPCI systems.
