New CompactPCI Products In a hurry? - New development system can help A new Ziatech CompactPCI development series is designed for telecom and Internet equipment builders under time-to-market pressure. The Sapphire = 1008 Development System features a new 10U chassis, a choice of Ziatech's Pentium(R) II and Pentium III CPU cards, a selection of OS and RTOS = support, and a core set of peripherals, pre-configured and ready to run. Visit: www.ziatech.com/productsnapshots/Saph1008t.htm * More penguins? - Linux meets multiprocessing Ziatech Corporation is combining its CompactNET(tm) multiprocessing technology with the recently announced LinuxPCI 1000 Development = System, speeding the implementation of Linux=AE-based, multiprocessing = CompactPCI=AE systems. The CompactNET version of the LinuxPCI 1000 comes with = MontaVista Software's Hard Hat(tm) Linux, an embedded version of Linux. For more information, visit: www.ziatech.com/productsnapshots/linuxpci1000.htm Need power? - New modular 3U power supplies Separate new power supplies from Ziatech provide CompactPCI systems = with AC or DC input power in a modular, 3U package with hot swap and load = sharing capabilities. These compact power supplies are designed for telecom, Internet, and industrial automation applications.
