Designed for demanding, rugged computing applications with restrictive dimensional requirements, IMP2A packs a powerful CompactPCI SBC into an extremely space-efficient 3U form factor. IMP2A offers a seamless technology insertion opportunity for existing IMP1A users and an ultra-high performance computing entry point for new users.

IMP2A's impressive processing core is based around a Freescale 7448 Power Architecture processor and a Marvell Discovery 3 Integrated System Controller which combines high bandwidth memory control and PCI bridging with an array of communication peripherals, including high speed serial and Ethernet ports, all on a single chip. A range of I/O options is offered including up to two Gigabit Ethernet channels, up to 12 bits of discrete digital I/O, and up to two serial channels capable of high speed operation in either asynchronous or synchronous mode and software programmable as RS-232/422 or 485.
