Kontron's CP3005-SA is the perfect choice for high-performance applications, with an improved performance-per-watt compared to predecessors. The single-slot master CPU cards are based on 8th Gen. Intel® Core™ i5 and i7, Intel’s newest refresh of the 14-nanometer technology with up to 6 cores. Combined with Intel® UHD Graphics P630, It provides a new level of graphics performance compared to previous platform designs.

CP3005-SA, when assembled with the 8th Gen. Xeon® E processor, is selected for typical server applications and whenever error-correcting code (ECC) memory is a must. CP3005-SA is built to be used in demanding and harsh environments. It is designed for VITA47 EAC3 and a temperature range of -40°C up to +70°C.  The processor’s TDP can be adjusted dynamically to a desired performance and power envelope.

The maturity and future-openness of the CompactPCI form factor is proven in all ECT markets. Typical applications can be found in:

  • Defence 
  • Industrial Plant Control, Machine Control 
  • Energy, Oil&Gas, Mining 
  • Transportation  

10 years lifetime of CP3005-SA or even more, and Kontron’s commitment to a rich CompactPCI portfolio, make CP3005-SA a safe investment with low total-cost-of-ownership.
