InForce Computing Announces IFC-9112S Ultra Low Power AdvancedMC Processor Module Based on the New Intel® Atom™ Processor

Livermore, California (EastBayDaily) — InForce Computing, an innovative supplier for next generation network infrastructure and embedded computing devices, today announced the IFC-9112S, an ultra low power AdvancedMC processor module based on the Intel® Atom™ processor Z500 series and the Intel® System Controller Hub US15W. The IFC-9112S is ideal for low-power service and control plane processing in many networking and telecom systems using the MicroTCA or AdvancedTCA (ATCA) platform architecture.

“We are very excited by the ground-breaking capabilities of the new Intel® Atom™ processor,” said Jagat Acharya, President, InForce Computing. “With its very low power consumption, the IFC-9112S is the ideal AMC compute platform for applications ranging from WiMax base station controllers and mobile service platforms to network-centric medical equipment.”

“The ultra-low power (Intel® Atom™ processor) helps InForce Computing to deliver the critical features that system designers demand for next-generation mobile network infrastructure and platforms,” said Jonathan Luse, director of marketing, Low Power Embedded Products Division, Intel.

Intel® Atom™ processor is fabricated using the latest Intel 45nm process and Hi-K dielectric technology. The Intel® System Controller Hub is a low-power, highly integrated chipset with integrated 3D graphics. This extreme power saving solution consumes just one-tenth of the power of previous ultra low-voltage, single core Intel® platforms.

In addition to being compatible with AMC.0, AMC.1 and AMC.2 specifications, the IFC-9112S can be deployed as a low-profile computing platform for a wide range of embedded applications in emerging markets such as next generation handheld devices used for mobile payments and financial services, inventory management, and interactive multi-media clients.

Standard features on the IFC-9112S include 1 GB DDR2 memory, 16 GB flash memory, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, a USB 2.0 connector, and LVDS and SDVO graphics ports. In addition, the IFC-9112S can support an additional Ethernet management port and on-board solid-state storage device.

InForce Computing offers fully-customized variants of the IFC-9112S requiring only final productization within the OEM system environment. InForce services also include flexible NPI options to allow the products to be integrated into multiple supply-chain solutions.
