AMBLER, Pa., 8 March 2011. MEN Micro Inc. in Ambler, Pa., is introducing the G20 single-board computer based on the newly ratified PICMG CPCI-S.0 CompactPCI Serial specification for monitoring, vision, control, and test and measurement in aerospace, industrial automation, robotics, shipbuilding, and transportation embedded computing applications.The CPU board uses the 64-bit Intel Core i7 with a base processing speed of 2.53 GHz that supports Intel Turbo Boost Hyperthreading technology to provide a maximum speed of 3.20 GHz. A CPU-independent microprocessor in the G20 based on Intel Advanced Management Technology (AMT) allows remote access via an integrated Ethernet controller.AMT also enables users to access different functions remotely such as reading status information, changing configurations, switching the PC on and off as well as forwarding or redirecting I/O devices like hard disks and CD-ROM (Serial Over LAN) via keyboard, video or mouse.

In addition to the standard, fast 8 gigabytes DDR3 ECC SDRAM soldered against shock and vibration, a CompactFlash and a microSD card slot connected to the G20 via one USB interface can extend memory capacities.

The board offers two PCI Express-driven Gigabit Ethernet and two USB 2.0 interfaces as well as two DisplayPorts that can be used as an HDMI or DVI connection via an external adapter. Eight PCI Express links in the front and back of the G20 enable fast communication. For user-specific applications, the rear I/O also provides eight USB ports, six SATA ports, a Display or HDMI port as well as a PEG x8 port and five PCI Express x1 links.
