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