FORCE INTROS SYSTEM 1H FROM FLEXOR LINE FOR EXTREMELY HIGH-DENSITY COMPUTING NEEDS.

Force Computers has introduced the System 1H, a half-depth, 1U footprint platform and the newest member of the Flexor family of embedded solutions. Designed to NEBS Level 3 requirements for harsh operating conditions and standard with a low-power 400MHz Celeron[R] processor-based single host board (SHB) and three 64-bit ePCI-X expansion slots, this very small form-factor platform can meet application requirements for extremely high-density computing via its capability for back-to-back installation of systems in one rack-with up to 84 servers possible in a six-foot rack. Targeted at OEMs designing communications, networking and other data-intensive applications, the 10.65-inch-deep System 1H meets the needs of e-commerce vendors, telecom providers and others for cost-effective Web hosts, firewalls, virtual private networks (VPNs) and other Internet functionality.

"Designed and manufactured to meet NEBS Level 3 requirements and current PICMG specifications, the System 1H server helps complete the Flexor line of products to provide a set of complementary solutions designed to meet any price/performance targets," said Michael Beauchemin, Force systems product manager. "With System 1H, the Flexor portfolio now offers OEMs a selection of products from a 1U server all the way to a fully configured 4U system. Also, with three ePCI-X slots and reversible I/O, the platform offers a flexible, high-quality solution for extremely high-density computing rack-mount requirements. Compared to off-the-shelf products, it meets exact OEM needs-from exclusive branding to custom engineering-as Force operates from a global footprint of design centers, backed by Solectron's ISO 9001 certified processes and supply-chain management expertise-a capability unequalled in embedded computing."

Compliant with PICMG 1.2 R1.0, the System 1H server offers one of the most cost-effective options for network clustering as well as space-constrained environments and is the smallest standard form-factor embedded solution on the market. In addition to a low-power

Based on PICMG PCI/ISA standard passive backplane technology, the Flexor line provides a range of processors, backplanes and enclosures that combine to create platforms to match OEM requirements. PICMG passive backplane technology offers advantages of low-cost peripherals and I/O cards from the PC market but with flexibility and reliability standard PCs can't match. Combined with Force's commitment to quality and longevity, Flexor products offer optimum industrial/embedded computing solutions.

System 1H embedded servers will be available through Force's Early Access Unit (EAU) program in April 2002 with volume shipments scheduled for May 2002. OEM volume pricing starts at approximately $800.
