FORCE ANNOUNCES LINE OF FLEXIBLE, MODULAR COMPACTPCI SYSTEMS FOR LOW-COST INTEGRATION.

Force Computers has announced the ModuSys line of CompactPCI (CPCI) systems, designed to meet the needs of system integrators, value-added resellers, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and others for flexible, modular application platforms. Intended for data communications, broadband, enterprise and telecommunications applications with normal-to-optimum operating condition requirements, these 1U, 2U, 4U and 9U systems provide low-cost solutions with unique professional features, which improve reliability and maintainability. Standard with Force's Pentium III 800MHz processor-based CPCI-735 single board computer (SBC), custom ModuSys systems are also available with PowerPC or SPARC processors.

Also, 4U and 9U chassis are available with PICMG 2.16 CompactPCI Packet-Switching Backplane (cPSB) switch-fabric architecture. Overall, the ModuSys line continues Force's tradition of providing high-quality systems at multiple price/performance points as it takes its place alongside Force's award-winning high-end Centellis CPCI and highly configurable Flexor PCI/ISA system families.

"Based on high demand for low-cost, very flexible CompactPCI solutions, Force has launched the ModuSys line of systems, which OEMs and others can configure for specific applications," said Peter Zeller, Force director of system integration. "Previously unheard of in embedded computing, Force offers turnaround time of just two weeks on ModuSys-with dedicated speed-to-delivery from order booking to shipping. We accomplish such quick response because of our optimized logistic procedures and strategic component stock, from which we build systems to spec. We're committed to deliver 'on-the-fly' configurations so systems can be put to work now-not remain in inventory-all part of our one-stop source for cost-effective products and support."

ModuSys 1000 (1U), 2000 (2U) and 4000 (4U) CPCI systems will be available through Force's Early Access Unit (EAU) program in May 2002 with volume shipments slated for July 2002. Single-unit-quantity prices range from $2,100 to $2,750. ModuSys 4000P (4U) and 9000P (9U) cPSB units will be available H2 2002.
