Carlsbad, CA October 21, 2008 – JumpGen Systems today announced the PRM-100, a next generation processor AdvancedMC™ (PrAMC) based on the latest 45nm Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor SL9380, coupled with the Intel® 3100 chipset, an integrated memory and I/O controller operating with 800MHz Front Side Bus. The single-wide PRM-100 PrAMC features dual 10Gbps Ethernet interfaces and dual processor cores to host high-bandwidth embedded communication applications. The PRM-100 is one of several JumpGen PrAMC solutions that support 10Gbps Ethernet fabric addressing growing market requirements for IP networks. The PRM-100 is a compact but powerful compute solution optimized to meet customers’ most challenging performance and thermal requirements with high-speed connectivity.

“We see a growing need for a secure IP communications and multi-gigabit packet processing in many market segments, including the communications, military, medical and commercial markets.” said Harry White, JumpGen Systems President. “The PRM-100 is JumpGen’s first product to offer Intel’s latest 45nm processor technology and multiple 10Gbps Ethernet (XAUI) interfaces in the small footprint offered by a single-wide AdvancedMC™. The PRM-100 will complement a growing number of MicroTCA™ systems with XAUI MCHs and ATCA Carriers and Node boards with XAUI connections to AMC sites and the backplane.

“The 45nm-based Core 2 Duo processor uses hafnium-infused Hi-k transistors that increase processor performance by doubling transistor density,” said Rose Schooler, general manager, Embedded Performance Products Division, Intel. “JumpGen provides embedded processor boards, such as the PRM-100 PrAMC, that utilize the increased performance of this latest processor to meet the requirements of multiple communications applications.”

"JumpGen Systems has an experienced team and is poised to fill a gap in the ATCA and MicroTCA ecosystem", said Lance Leventhal, Technology Editor, ATCA Newsletter. "The PRM-100 provides next generation technology today on an industry standard AdvancedMC form factor."

"JumpGen Systems is a leader in AdvancedMC product development and is expanding the ecosystem for AMC.0 R2.0 and AMC.2 R1.0 compliant products. We are pleased that JumpGen Systems i developing new products based on PICMG® standards," said Joe Pavlat, President of PICMG®, the open standards consortium.
