Radstone Embedded Computing has announced the PowerPact3 IMP2A rugged 3U CompactPCI single board computer (SBC). Designed around the Freescale 7448 PowerPC processor - operating at 1.4GHz, over twice the speed of the 7410 processor on the PowerPact IMP1A - the IMP2A is the first product in its class to offer two Gigabit Ethernet ports for maximum performance and configurability. Designed for demanding applications with restrictive dimensional and/or weight requirements, the IMP2A packs a powerful SBC into an extremely space-efficient and lightweight 3U form factor. It also features up to 512 MBytes of Double Data Rate (DDR) memory, 128 MBytes of Flash memory and a PCI-x capable PMC site. It is the first single board computer to use Radstone's Embedded Side Bar technology which offers superior conduction cooling compared with competitive products. The IMP2A is available in five air/conduction-cooled ruggedization levels. It is fully supported at the chassis level by either the RDS evaluation/development chassis or the RT4 deployment chassis.
