Radisys Introduces Quad-Core COM Express 2.0 Module Based on 2nd Generation Intel Core i7 Processor at 2.1GHz

Radisys’ breakthrough Procelerant™ CEQM67 module delivers extreme processing power and graphics within a basic 95mm x 125mm form factor for medical, enterprise telecom and mil/aero applications.

HILLSBORO, ORE. – January 5, 2011 - Radisys® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a leading provider of innovative hardware and software platforms for next generation IP-based wireless, wireline and video networks, today announced the release of its ProcelerantTM CEQM67, a breakthrough, quad-core performance Type 6 COM Express Revision 2.0 module based on the 2nd generation Intel® CoreTM i7 processor at 2.1GHz and Intel® QM67 Express chipset. Industries including medical, enterprise telecom and mil/aero continue to migrate to smaller, more powerful, scalable devices that demand graphics and processor performance for video-intensive applications. These industries are actively incorporating higher-performance processors into platforms that lower the cost, improve performance ratio and drive product adoption. Procelerant CEQM67 is Radisys’ first Type 6 COM Express 2.0 compliant product that provides quad-core processing in a basic 95mm x 125mm form factor COM Express revision 2.0 module.

The COM Express Type 6 module, defined in the COM Express 2.0 specification, addresses the need for digital display interfaces (DDI) while offering a simple upgrade path for existing Type 2-based designs used in applications requiring higher processing, graphics and memory performance. Radisys’ Procelerant CEQM67 maximizes the performance and feature benefits of the new platform comprised of the Intel® CoreTM i7 processor and Intel® QM67 Express chipset by complying with the Type 6 specification. The Procelerant CEQM67 supports increased PCI Express lanes over COM Express 1.0, up to 12 USB ports, four SATA ports and three DDIs, including High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), DisplayPort and Serial Digital Video Out (SDVO) interfaces. The Procelerant CEQM67 places the difficult and complex, high-speed processor design on a modular and upgradeable form factor – enabling customers to reduce cycle time while increasing design focus on the differentiating application requirements of the carrier board SDVO interfaces.

“Radisys was a founding author of the original COM Express 1.0 specification and a leading contributor in the revision process for COM Express 2.0,” said Lorraine Orcino, product line manager, Radisys. “We have reinforced our position as an industry leader by advancing industry standards and designing the Radisys Procelerant CEQM67 to fit our customers’ needs for a COM Express product that transitions their platforms to the next generation processor, graphics and I/O requirements. The Procelerant CEQM67 is ideal for the streamlined, high-performance needs of medical, enterprise telecom and mil/aero applications, creating a flexible, modular and upgradeable platform for solutions such as ultrasound imaging, radar, command and control devices and security systems.”

“As visually-intensive applications become the norm, the ability to provide compelling graphics performance, coupled with support for high-bandwidth digital display interfaces, becomes a requirement for COM Express form factors,” said Matt Langman, director of product marketing, Intel Embedded Computing Division. “The new Intel® CoreTM i7 processor 2715QE with the Intel® QM67 Express chipset offers essential digital display interfaces and unprecedented embedded support for video and graphics applications.”

About the Radisys Procelerant CEQM67

Based on the quad-core Intel® CoreTM i7-2715QE processor and Intel® QM67 Express chipset, the Procelerant CEQM67 delivers the highest performance possible in a basic 95mm x 125mm COM Express form factor. Combined with up to 16GB of DDR3 memory, an option for ECC support and enhanced display support, the COM Express module brings a new level of price performance to the medical, enterprise and mil/aero industries. The Procelerant CEQM67 module also provides new capabilities with support for Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT). Introducing Intel AMT to the Procelerant CEQM67 enables original equipment manufacturers to design embedded systems with remote management capability, thereby providing opportunity for enhanced field service offerings and additional revenue stream. The Intel AMT capability of the Procelerant CEQM67 is combined with on-board Trusted Platform Management (TPM) to ensure remote access transactions are safe and secure. Radisys plans to support the breadth of embedded Intel® processors that are validated and released with the Intel QM67 Express chipset.
