FORCE ANNOUNCES LINE OF FLEXIBLE, MODULAR COMPACTPCI SYSTEMS FOR LOW-COST INTEGRATION.
Force Computers has announced the ModuSys line of CompactPCI (CPCI See CompactPCI. ) 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 (MegaHertZ) One million cycles per second. It is used to measure the transmission speed of electronic devices, including channels, buses and the computer's internal clock. A one-megahertz clock (1 MHz) means some number of bits (16, 32, 64, etc. processor-based CPCI-735 single board computer (SBC (1) (SBC Communications Inc., San Antonio, TX, www.sbc.com) A large, national telecommunications company that grew from a multitude of local and regional companies, including Southwestern Bell, Pacific Bell and Nevada Bell, into a single, unified brand by 2002. ), custom ModuSys systems are also available with PowerPC or SPARC (Scalable Performance ARChitecture) A family of RISC CPUs from Sun that runs mostly under Sun's Solaris, but also under Linux and BSD operating systems. After development began in the mid-1980s by David Patterson of the University of California at Berkeley and Bill processors.
Also, 4U and 9U chassis are available with PICMG An industry consortium that develops specifications for backplanes and interconnects for electronic equipment in the industrial and telecom fields. It was founded in 1994 as the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group, hence the acronym. 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 flexor /flex·or/ (flek´ser)

"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 EAU European Association of Urology
