Marvell Quad-Core 1.6GHz ARMADA XP Micro-Server on Module With ECC (Error-Correcting Code) Memory Available Now From Cogent Computer Systems

The CSB1726, Designed, Developed and Manufactured by Cogent Computer Systems, Inc., Is a High Performance, Network Oriented, ARMv6/7 Based Micro-Server on a Module (uSOM); The CSB1726 Provides a Small, Powerful and Flexible Engine for Embedded Linux Based 10/100/1000 Networking and Storage Applications

SMITHFIELD, RI--(Marketwired - February 16, 2015) - The Quad Superscalar ARMv6/7 Architecture Cores, 6-Lanes PCI Express Gen 2, high speed USB, Dual Gen 2 SATA, Four 1G/2.5G Ethernet, and highly efficient on-board regulators all combine to make the CSB1726 the ideal engine for size restricted, high performance, Micro-Server, Network and Storage applications. For the lowest power consumption, the IPM Micro can power the board down completely while remaining on standby power. In this mode the board power consumption drops to less than 100mw.

The CSB1726 is constructed using state of the art PCB layout and packaging technology such as: 1600Mhz DDR3 balanced routing; 5GHZ+ high-speed differential signaling; 18 Amp peak switching regulators; and 8-layer, low EMI, impedance controlled PCB stackup. The CSB1726 gives you access to this technology without the learning curve or the risk. You can integrate the CSB1726 using a simple, low cost 4-layer PCB, in just weeks, not months! We can even do it for you through our no NRE custom design program.

Cogent Computer Systems, Inc. has been designing, manufacturing and delivering advanced embedded hardware since 1992. We originally produced SBCs for software developers, but as more and more functionality was integrated onto the CPU it became economically feasible to design and produce boards which could be used for both OEM use and software development.

Cogent proudly manufactures our modules, development boards and custom carriers in-house on our own SMT production facility here in Rhode Island, USA. Cogent builds lead free, but also supports leaded techniques to support high reliability environments. Cogent builds to the international standards IPC-610 Class 2 and Class 3.
