German-based embedded computer modules manufacturer Kontron has introduced AdvancedMC processor module AM4022 that is designed with the 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor.

With up to 4 x 2.1 GHz, the new processor module offers more than twice the processing performance and up to four times the 3D graphics performance compared to its previous processor, the company claims.

The new release is well suited for MicroTCA and AdvancedTCA telecommunications applications such as IPTV, media servers and media gateways, video data processing and in test solutions for networking equipment.

The Kontron AM4022 comes with dual-core and quad-core CPU performance that is scalable up to the 2.1 GHz Intel Core i7-3612QE processor.

It also includes integrated Intel HD4000 graphics that delivers an enhanced performance supported by DirectX 11, OpenGL 3.1, OpenCL 1.1 and Intel QuickSync Video for high performance video transcoding.

The new AMC features up to 8 GB of soldered DDR3 1600 MHz ECC-protected memory as well as up to 64 GB of SLC NAND Flash can be integrated to host a complete operating system and application code.

The AMC.0/.1/.2/.3 compliant Kontron AM4022 offers eight PCI Express Gen3 lanes to the backplane, configurable as 2 x PCIe x 4 or 1 x PCIe x 8. There are also four GbE ports: two on the front and two 1000BASE-BX (SerDes) on the backplane as well as two 6 Gbit/s SATA ports.
