TEMs Can Upgrade Existing Systems and Stay Within 200 W Power Envelope

Kontron has released its latest AdvancedTCA® 10 Gigabit node blade. The Kontron AT8050 is designed with the new Intel® Xeon® 5500 Platform with the latest 45 nm quad-core processors. The culmination of this launch has already produced an exceptional level of interest from major telecom equipment manufacturers seeking new Intel® processor technology to fuel storage, security, and mobile and multimedia server network applications. In designing the Kontron AT8050 AdvancedTCA®  blade, the company chose to design with a single quad-core Intel® Xeon® processor L5518 with a 60W power envelope, as opposed to a dual CPU configuration. The benefits of this are that clients can still make use of one available AdvancedMC slot for further feature extensions; can maximize the amount of available memory at 24GB DDR3 Registered ECC VLP SDRAM and up to 48GB DDR3 once available; and, most importantly, clients can upgrade their existing node blades with the Kontron AT8050 without having to upgrade their chassis platforms.
