Carlsbad, Calif. - A Sparc-based single-board computer from Momentum Computer is targeted at data communications applications, including telecommunications servers, switches, routers and wireless basestations. Dubbed the Leopard, the CompactPCI system is built around an Ultrasparc IIe processor that operates at 500 MHz and supports up to 2 Gbytes of main memory.
The SBC runs on the Solaris operating system and occupies a single slot in a standard CompactPCI chassis with a 6U form factor. The hot-swappable board autosenses and operates as a system or nonsystem CompactPCI slot.
Other features include temperature and voltage sensors that provide real-time feedback for critical applications, PMC graphics support and a power-on self-test capability. Standard keyboard, mouse and COM1 ports are provided on the front panel, and a PMC slot is provided for user I/O or coprocessor add-on. A complete 64-bit PCI bus, PIM-compliant PMC I/O connections and COM1/COM 2 are provided on the rear J3/J5 connectors.
The board's memory and storage include 512-, 1,024-, 1,536- or 2,048-Mbyte (2-Gybte) SDRAM options with error correction code; 1 Mbyte of boot flash memory, 8 Mbytes of user flash-disk memory and 32 kbytes of NVRAM and real-time clock.
An optional rear-mounted Transition Module provides two Ultra 160 SCSI and two 10/100 Base T Ethernet ports, COM-1/COM2 ports and provision for a PMC I/O module. A version of the Transition Module provides dual Ethernet to the J3 connector to support switched-fabric backplanes.
Prices start at $5,750, with substantial volume discounts. The unit is now available.
