SBS Technologies, Inc. Announces Palomar II™,A PPMC Module-Hosting PPC 750 Processor Targeted At The Telecommunications Market
SBS Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: SBSE) today announced the vailability of Palomar II&8482;, a PowerPC processor module targeted at the growing telecommunications market. Palomar II is a Processor PMC (PPMC) module that hosts a high performance PowerPC 750 processor. Coupled with real-time operating systems like VxWorks©, Palomar II brings the processing power and memory of a 6U card to the PMC form-factor. "Many telecom and datacom customers are designing PMC sites on their baseboards and Palomar II is an easily upgradeable processor engine which allows our customers to improve total system performance as newer, faster processors become available without changing their system architecture. Customers are modularizing system designs and moving processors onto PPMC modules, leaving the baseboard, or host board, for their value added I/O or ASICs. The Palomar II allows a customer to upgrade system performance easily and cost effectively," said Bret Farnum, General Manager of SBS Technologies' Embedded PPC Products operation. Palomar II, based on the latest PowerPC 750 processor, offers lower core voltages, keeping the Palomar II within standard PMC power and dimension standards. The Palomar II provides additional features that meet the growing demands of the telecommunications market and satisfies the requirements of VITA32, the Processor PMC specification.
