  • Albuquerque, New Mexico, May 24, 2005: Today, SBS Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:SBSE) continued its role as an embedded computer market leader by introducing a 6U CompactPCI dual PMC carrier card. The DCPMC64 carrier card is engineered to support two PMC modules allowing a customer to expand features of their system in a single slot. The DCPMC64 offers backwards compatibility to the SBS DCPMC carrier card while increasing bus performance from 32bit/33MHz to 64bit/66MHz. "This new conduction-cooled carrier card uses a custom heat frame to conduct heat from the board and PMC modules to a conduction-cooled system chassis, making it an ideal choice for embedded applications designed to operate in extended temperature locations like those found in security, avionics, communications and surveillance environments", said Wayne McGee, General Manager of the SBS Technologies Single Board Computer design center in North Carolina. The rugged DCPMC64 is a dual CompactPCI 64-bit PMC carrier card in 6U form factor that can seamlessly accommodated two PMC modules for increasing I/O capability to a system. The DCPMC64 can connect two IEEE 1386.1 PMC modules to any standard CompactPCI backplane through a 32/64-bit, 33/66 MHz cPCI bus. The DCPMC64 uses PLX Technology’s PCI 6154 transparent PCI/PCI Bridge for data transactions from the PCI bus (system host) to two standard PMC sites. Each PMC site can send I/O data directly to the CompactPCI backplane through its I/O connector and PMC I/O bus. Price and Availability: The DCPMC64-R costs $1500 and the DCPMC-N costs $1975. Both carrier cards are available now. # # # About SBS Technologies SBS Technologies® (Nasdaq:SBSE), founded in 1986, designs and builds a wide range of standard and customized embedded computer products.
