ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Performance Technologies (Nasdaq: PTIX), a leading developer of communication platforms and systems, today announced the immediate availability of the AMC590, the company's newest family member of AdvancedMC(TM) products. The single, mid-size module features AMD's latest, high-performance graphics processor for the embedded market, the ATI Radeon(TM) E2400, and can be configured with either a SATA or SAS-based hard drive.

Using the AMC590, with its highly compact form factor and standards-based, hot-swappable, and NEBS-compliant capabilities, product engineers can build graphics and/or storage subsystems into their product applications. The ATI Radeon E2400 delivers exceptional 2D, 3D, and multimedia graphics with 128 MB of internal GDDR3 memory and comes equipped with dual-display support, integrated audio, and PCI Express(R) interface. Full product specifications for the AMC590 and product photo can be found at www.pt.com/amc590. The company's full line of industry leading, embedded hardware and Linux(R) software (NexusWare(R)) solutions are ideal for product development environments such as telecommunications, aerospace and defense, and commercial.

"The AMC590 makes an excellent choice for MicroTCA(TM) or ATCA applications where graphic-intensive or storage-intensive capabilities are required," said Tony Romero, product manager for Performance Technologies. "Product options include video and storage, storage-only, or video-only."

"We're pleased to have the ATI Radeon E2400 incorporated into Performance Technologies' new AMC offering," said Richard Jaenicke, director of embedded graphics for AMD. "The on-chip graphics memory and low power of the ATI Radeon E2400 enables high-performance graphics solutions in a small form factor, such as the AMC590 from Performance Technologies."

Electronic system architects and design engineers needing advanced, compute-intensive embedded solutions can meet with Performance Technologies representatives at the upcoming Embedded Systems Conference Silicon Valley in San Jose, CA (April 15-17, 2008, booth 1510).
