Performance Technologies has launched the CPC5564 Single Board Computer.
The CPC5564 is claimed by the company as the world’s first CompactPCI 2.16 blade computer based on 64-bit, single and dual-core AMD Opteron processors. The server forms part of the company’s next-generation computer products built for telecommunications, security and commercial applications.
The AMD Opteron processor provides a scalable x86 architecture plus a path from 32- to 64-bit computing. Its multi-core architecture is said to offer immediate, cost-effective technology to address processor design challenges such as reducing heat and power consumption.
Designed to run Linux, Solaris and Windows operating systems, the CPC5564 will likely be used for high-end packet processing or multi-threaded software applications found in wireless, softswitch, defence and other computer-intensive applications.
David Rich, director of 64-bit Embedded Markets, AMD, said, “Performance Technologies’ CPC5564 will help drive the next generation of high-performance embedded products designed to meet the high compute needs of today’s equipment manufacturers and system integrators.”
