ROBO-8913VG2AR - Advanced Computing Slot Board with Intel® Q35 Express Chipset Handles Huge Data Streaming From Storage and PCI Express Interfaces

2007-10-25  Taipei,Taiwan
Portwell Inc., a world-leading innovator in the Industrial PC ( IPC) market and a member of the Intel® Communication Alliance , today announced her latest PICMG 1.3 (SHB Express) Single Host Board (SHB) the ROBO-8913VG2AR based on the Intel® 82Q35 Graphics Media Controller Hub, the Intel® I/O Controller Hub 9 (ICH9) and the Intel® Core™2 Duo processor.

Portwell is a development leader for SHBs utilizing Intel® architecture and offers a variety of solutions for PICMG 1.3 products. There are Single Host Board (SHB) ROBO-8920VG2 based on Intel® E7520 chipset and Single Host Board (SHB) ROBO-8912VG2AR based on Intel® Q965 Express chipset. A series of backplanes to fit PICMG 1.3 SHB generate PCI Express x 16, x8, x4, x1 expansion interface.

The evolution of PCI Express benefits applications such as image processing, chemistry analysis, flight simulation with faster processor. The new PICMG 1.3 architecture allows system to have PCI Express and PCI expansion, therefore, fine and high quality display can be support with PCI Express x16 graphics adapter and storage can be extended to PCI Express x4 RAID card. Plus some PCI I/O cards, the system are about two times or even more powerful than traditional PICMG 1.0 that only support PCI/ISA expansion. Portwell Inc., major supplier of PICMG 1.x platform provides wide product selections since scalability is one advantage of it.

"With the latest PICMG 1.3 SHB, ROBO-8913VG2AR, customers can take advantage of the extreme computing power of a desktop processor and also an eSATA interface for massive data truncation within shorter duration", says Thomas Lee, Senior Product Manager of IPS BU.

eSATA is one of the special functions that Intel® I/O Controller Hub 9-DO (ICH9-DO) supports. Imagine the time consumption when you download or upload data to computer via USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 interface. Simply consider eSATA as an alternative solution to an external interface that is five times faster than USB 2.0 (300MB/s versus 480M bps). Nowadays, people not only have USB flash disc but also mobile rack with 2.5" hard drive in it for large data exchange. Once the hard drive natively supports eSATA then you will not waste your precious time on waiting. Beyond storage device, many devices with USB interface no longer be limited by the interconnection bottleneck.

"The Intel® Q35 Express chipset is an ideal component for PICMG 1.3 SHBs, like the Portwell ROBO-8913VG2AR, as the 3 Gb/s data link eliminates bottlenecks found with current external storage solutions," said Joe Jensen, general manager of Intel’s Embedded Market Division.

ROBO-8913VG2AR specification at a glance:

  • Support Intel ® Core™2 Duo processors in LGA775 package with 800/1066/1333MHz FSB
  • Dual 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM DIMMM sockets, support dual-channel DDR2 667/800 system memory up to 4GB
  • Intel® Q35 Express chipset with integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3100 (Intel® GMA 3100) core that supports MPEG-2 Decode, DirectX 9.0c, OpenGL 1.4 and Shader Model 2
  • External expansion cover single PCI Express x16 link, one PCI Express x4 link (can be configured as four PCI Express x1) and four PCI devices via backplane
  • Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports on-board help management of different domain of network
  • Six SATA ports (two of them route to backplane); twelve USB 2.0 ports (four of them route to backplane)
  • Intel® Matrix Storage Technology provides RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10 and combination of two levels for better performance and access time
  • eSATA port could be any one of SATA ports and it can communicate with multiple driver via port multiplier

Portwell devoted herself to implement the latest Intel technologies into industry computing platform with different form factors that allow customers to design their products with rich functions or smallest response time as well as benefit end user’s operating experience.
