The CP6004-RA/RC, a CompactPCI PICMG 2.16 compliant 6U CPU board, comes with various rugged levels, making it yet another addition to Kontron’s rugged PICMG 2.16 portfolio.

Based on the Intel® Core™ i7 third generation processor and the QM77 platform controller hub, the CP6004-RA/RC is featured by dual or quad core computing performance at a reasonable thermal design power, including a complete set of data, communication and multimedia interfaces.

The CP6004-RA version is designed for harsh application requirements in air-cooled environments, where the CP6004-RC is made for conduction cooled environments.

With the 2.1 GHz Intel® Core™ i7-3612QE and the LV 2.5 GHz Intel® Core™i7-3555LE, the CP6004-RA/RC has extraordinary performance per watt values. Up to 16 GByte of soldered DDR3 1600 MHz memory with ECC provide the foundation of demanding software applications.

Based on the Intel® Mobile QM77 I/O controller hub the CP6004-RA/RC provides high graphics performance for VGA and two independent digital video outputs to the rear I/O as well as HDA audio capabilities.

Besides the outstanding graphics performance, the CP6004-RA/RC offers comprehensive I/O capability with up to 5x 1Gb Ethernet, 4 x rear I/O SATA with RAID 0/1/5/10 functionality, a local SATA Flash disk connector, as well as 6x USB 2.0, 2 x COM.

It can also accommodate a conduction cooled PMC/XMC slot for I/O intensive applications. The board provides safety and security via an optional trusted platform module, (TPM 1.2), two redundant firmware hubs (failover) and IPMI support according PICMG 2.9 R1.0.
