RadiSys Extends COM Express Leadership With New Module

RadiSys introduced a COM Express module designed for embedded telecom applications that require a standard processor module and Error Correcting Code (ECC) memory.

When incorporated with the RadiSys Promentum ATCA-2210, system designers gain a switch and control module suited for Radio Network Controller, Media Gateway, IMS and IPTV applications. The CE3100 utilizes a Core 2 Duo L7400 processor and offers flexible storage options with Serial ATA (SATA) and Serial Attached Small Computer System Interface (SAS) configurations. The module also provides dual gigabit Ethernet capabilities to maximize IO bandwidth.

Procelerant CE products are based on COM Express, a standard that provides a bridge from legacy interfaces such as PCI and IDE to new serial differential signaling technologies such as PCI Express, Serial ATA, USB 2.0, LVDS, and Serial DVO.

Because they are modular and standards-based, RadiSys COM Express products help equipment manufacturers shorten their time to market and reduce development costs. By removing the processor, chipset and memory from the rest of the design, manufacturers can focus engineering resources on developing differentiating features and avoid the design churn that comes with implementing new processor generations.
