Advantech’s MIC-3325 is a 3U CompactPCI dual/single core processor blade based on the Intel® Atom™ processor D525/N455 ICH8M two-chip platform. It provides the high performance of 2 cores and 4 threads of processing power at lower cost, and with easier validation. The MIC-3325 fully utilizes the I/O features of the Intel® chipsets, including an integrated memory controller (IMC), integrated graphics processing unit (GPU) and integrated I/O (IIO) such as DMI. The low power requirements of the Intel® Atom™ processor makes operation in elevated temperature ranges possible. Breakthrough memory design puts 2GB SDRAM on board, while keeping the speed at DDR3 800MT/s. The on-board CPU and memory provide less weight and higher shock/vibration resistance than socket devices. With such benefits, the MIC-3325 can be used in mission-critical applications such as military defense, transportation, traffic control, test and measurement (T&M) as well as critical data acquisition & control applications. MIC-3325 uses the Intel® ICH8M as the PCH, which provides extensive I/O support. The Integrated Gigabit Ethernet Controller can operate at multiple speeds (10/100/1000 Mb/s) and in either full duplex or half duplex mode. A flexible 8HP extension module design provides the MIC-3325 with great flexibility and additional I/O connectivity to the customer.
