Themis Computer® announces its new LV1™ high-performance, VMEbus single board computer (SBC), designed to meet the needs of users requiring the low power Intel® processor and high performance, for their demanding applications. The Intel Core™2 Duo processors offer energy efficiency, workstation performance, and extended lifecycle support. Themis' new LV1 boards support the Linux®, Sun® Solaris™ 10, and Windows® Operating Systems, and are ideal for compute-intensive commercial, medical, and industrial applications, as well as demanding military and aerospace applications.
Themis' LV1 is based on the low power, Intel Core 2 Duo SL9400 processor with 45nm process technology which provides users with improved energy-efficient performance. Intel's hafnium-based 45nm Hi-k silicon process technology enables even more processor performance by doubling transistor density and increasing cache size by up to 50 percent. The result is improved speed and efficiency, relative to previous-generation dual-core Intel processors. Intel Core 2 Duo processors provide the bandwidth necessary to support the high performance I/O features of the LV1 board.
"Themis' LV1, utilizing Intel's Core 2 Duo technology, brings the high performance to the power sensitive segment of the x86 VMEbus market," said William Kehret, president of Themis Computer. "The LV1 differentiates itself from other market entries, with up to eight GB of ECC memory, an on-board graphics controller, and a wide variety of I/O and storage configurations," Mr. Kehret added.
The LV1 base configuration includes; Intel Core 2 Duo processor, four gigabytes of DDR II memory, three Gigabit Ethernet ports, three SATA II ports, four USB 2.0 ports and two XMC/PMC slots. An onboard ATI ES1000 video controller is provided with either front or rear panel VGA access. Storage can be provided through the use of an onboard CompactFlash or with an optional on-board SATA drive.
The board includes optional VITA-41 dual-Gigabit Ethernet to support the modern highly networked environments.
Configuration options for the LV1 include:
• Intel Core 2 Duo SL9400 processor at up to 1.86 GHz
• 4 GB DDRII memory standard, up to 8 GB DDRII ECC memory maximum
• Compact flash - Type I or II supported (CF write-protection available)
• Three (3) Gigabit Ethernet ports standard with expansion for up to seven ports
• Expansion to XMC/PMC carrier cards via two on-board XMC/PMC slots
• VME bridge: Tundra Tsi148
• On-board ATI ES1000 graphics chip
• Solaris™ 10, Linux®, and Windows® OS support
Temperature Range -5 to +55°C (operating) -40 to 95°C (non-operating)
Humidity 0 to 95% (non-condensing)
Shock 30G @ 40mS (operating) 30G @ 40mS (non-operating)
Vibration (10-2000Hz) 0.90G (rms) (operating) 2.97G (rms) (non-operating)
The LV-1 has extensive I/O. The base configuration includes three Gigabit Ethernet ports, three SATA II ports, and four USB 2.0 ports. Two expansion sites provide a wide variety of configurations:
Expansion Site 1:
• SoDIMM memory expansion up to 8G or
• XMC/PMC slot or
• SATA Hard Drive or
• 2-GbE ports to front panel
Expansion Site 2:
• XMC/PMC Slot or
• Connection to PMC/XMC carrier card - enables the use of up to three additional PMC/XMC cards
• 2-Gbe ports to front panel
These configuration options enable the LV1 to bring workstation performance to a 6U VME form factor.
The LV1 and its three-slot XMC expansion board are fully RoHS compliant.
