News Release -
RadiSys Announces Portfolio of Extended Temperature, Ruggedized Procelerant(TM) COM Express(TM) Modules Based on Intel(R) ProcessorsNew RadiSys Procelerant(TM)CEZ5XL COM Express module, based on the ultra low-power Intel(R) Atom(TM) processor Z5xx series, along with two additional RadiSys Procelerant modules offer broader choice for equipment manufacturers designing products for extended temperature or ruggedized applications
NUREMBERG, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 3, 2009--
Today at Embedded World, RadiSysŪ
Corporation (NASDAQ:RSYS), a leading global provider of
advanced embedded solutions, announced the new Procelerant CEZ5XL, an
industrial-temperature (-40C to +85C), ruggedized COM Express* module
based on the recently announced options for the IntelŪ Atom processor
Z5xx series. The CEZ5XL is the latest in the RadiSys Procelerant family
of COM Express products and was designed for use in industrial
automation, transportation, military, aerospace and government products
that need to withstand harsh environmental conditions. Additionally,
RadiSys Procelerant CEGSXT (based on the IntelŪ Core2 Duo processor)
and CEZ5XT (based on the IntelŪ Atom processor) modules have been
upgraded and can now support operation in extended temperature range
(-25C to +70C).
These modules are also a perfect match for the new RadiSys Procelerant
Integrated Systems (IS) (see accompanying announcement). The
Procelerant IS 1000 is a suite of embedded system platforms built on
COM Express modules, or Single Board Computers, combined with fully
integrated operating systems and software solutions for target
applications. Incorporating these extended temperature modules the
Procelerant IS can address business applications more effectively in
areas like industrial automation.
The extended temperature range of the Procelerant CEZ5XL opens up new
opportunities for companies developing military and government equipment
for example. Incorporating the CEZ5XL into their designs means the same
unmanned ground vehicles can be used in extreme environments like those
found in Baghdad or the North Pole.
"Offering a full suite of extended temperature, rugged COM Express
modules means our customers can select the ideal module for their design
based on performance, power and temperature requirements," said Wade
Clowes, Vice President and General Manager of commercial markets for
RadiSys. "Incorporating the latest IntelŪ technology, which comes with a
seven-year long lifecycle, enables us to meet customers' current and
future design specifications."
"Intel has extended the low-power Intel Atom processor Z5xx series
platform to offer an industrial temperature range specifically for
embedded applications," said Jonathan Luse, Director of Marketing, Low
Power Embedded Products Division, Intel. "This allows rugged modules,
such as the new RadiSys Procelerant CEZ5XL, to be used in many embedded
applications that are deployed in unconstrained thermal environments,
such as industrial settings and transportation systems."
RadiSys Extended Temperature COM Express Modules
The RadiSys Procelerant CEZ5XL is one of the industry's first IntelŪ
architecture-based COM Express modules that can operate in industrial
temperature range of -40C to +85C. The module also features enhanced I/O
made possible via a PCI bridge and PCIe switch that provides 4x PCIe
interfaces to the COM Express B2B connector. Additionally, the module
includes a SATA controller and optional on-board PATA SSD. While the
CEZ5XL offers a balance of I/O, the Procelerant CEZ5XT offers the lowest
power while the Procelerant CEGSXT delivers the highest performance.
Both the CEZ5XT and CEGSXT have been tested for ruggedized environments
with more robust shock and vibration specifications.
The Procelerant CEZ5XL, CEZ5XT and CEGSXT samples are available today.

About Procelerant COM Express
RadiSys Procelerant COM Express products help equipment manufacturers
shorten their time-to-market and reduce development costs. By removing
the processor, chipset, and memory from the rest of the design,
manufacturers can focus engineering resources on developing
differentiating features and avoid the design churn that comes with
implementing new processor generations. RadiSys also provides a wide
range of COM
Expert custom services that further accelerate customer
time-to-market by supplying carrier concept definition and design,
carrier schematic reviews, BIOS customization, and thermal design.
