ROCHESTER, N.Y., Feb. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Performance Technologies (Nasdaq: PTIX), a leading developer of communication platforms and systems, today announced an update to its AMC121 AdvancedMC(TM) single board computer that utilizes an Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo processor.

The upgraded module features a substantial increase in memory capacity — up to four gigabytes (4 GB) of 64-bit PC3200 DDR2 memory, as well as support for faster, user-replaceable, flash memory devices. The flash memory compatibility includes support for both standard MiniSD(TM) and high-capacity MiniSDHC modules and can be swapped out depending upon user requirements. This socketed option provides enhanced, user flexibility to meet design requirements as opposed to permanently affixed flash memory devices that could limit module performance.

"We are driven to ensure that our customers can quickly take advantage of the latest technologies and product options available on the market today," said Tony Romero, senior product manager for Performance Technologies. "Increasing the memory and improving the user-replaceable flash sites on our modules are just a few examples of how we continuously seek new ways to empower developers with additional features for their system designs."

Key features of the updated AMC121 include: Processor — Intel Core 2 dual-core architecture — Independent L1 cache structures per core — Shared L2 cache (4MB) — 64-bit processor — Compatible with existing 32-bit code base — Enhanced Intel SpeedStep(R) technology for more efficient power management Memory — Low latency, high bandwidth — 64-bit DDR2 PC2-3200 — 200-pin SO-RDIMM — Supports up to 4 GB DRAM — ECC checking with double-bit detect and single-bit correct Storage — Onboard MiniSD card site with program and operating system storage space enables the module to boot without an external connection AdvancedMC Connector Ports — Port 0: 1 Gb/2.5 Gb Ethernet Channel 1 (AMC.2) — Port 1: 1 Gb/2.5 Gb Ethernet Channel 2 (AMC.2) — Port 2: SATA 1 (AMC.3) — Port 3: SATA 2 (AMC.3) — Ports 4-11: x8 PCI Express Lanes (AMC.1) — x1, x4, or x8
