F19P – 3U CompactPCI® PlusIO Intel® Core 2 Duo SBC


(cPCI) Boards - 3U Processors

The F19P versatile 4HP/3U single-board computer is a continuation of MEN’s proven range of Intel® CPU boards.

It is equipped with the Intel® high-performance Core 2 Duo processor SP9300 running at 2.26 GHz and offering the latest multi-core processor architecture from Intel® with full 64-bit support. The board delivers an excellent graphics performance and is designed especially for embedded systems which require high computing performance with low power consumption.

The F19P offers a 32-bit/33-MHz CompactPCI® bus interface and can also be used without a bus system. It offers 4 USB 2.0 and 4 fast (3Gb/s) SATA interfaces as well as 4 PCI Express® x1 links and one Gigabit Ethernet on the J2 rear I/O connector which is compatible with the PICMG 2.30 CompactPCI® PlusIO specification.

A total of seven PCI Express® lanes for high-speed communication (such as Gigabit Ethernet) are supported on the F19P. 3 x1 PCIe® links are used for the three onboard Ethernet interfaces. 4 x1 or 1 x4 PCIe® links are available via rear I/O or on a specific side card.

The F19P is equipped with a state-of-the-art fast DDR3 DRAM and a robust CompactFlash® and microSD card device.

The standard I/O available at the front panel of F19P includes graphics on a VGA connector, two PCIe®-driven Gigabit Ethernet as well as two USB 2.0 ports.

The F19P can be extended by different side cards. Additional functions include two digital video inputs for flat panel connection via DVI (multimedia), a variety of different UARTs or another four USBs, SATA for hard disk connection and HD audio.

The F19P operates in Windows® and Linux environments as well as under real-time operating systems that support Intel®’s multi-core architecture. The InsydeH2O EFI BIOS was specially designed for embedded system applications.

The F19P is suited for a wide range of industrial applications, e.g. for monitoring, vision and control systems as well as test and measurement in target markets like industrial automation, multimedia, transportation, aerospace, medical engineering and others.

The F19P comes with a tailored passive heat sink within 4 HP height. The robust design of the F19P make the board especially suited for use in rugged environments with regard to shock and vibration according to applicable DIN, EN or IEC industry standards. The F19P is also ready for coating so that it can be used in humid and dusty environments and has a guaranteed minimum standard availability of 7 years.
