Performance Technologies Leads Industry with New AdvancedMC(TM) Module Featuring Intel(R) EP80579 Integrated Processor

Accelerates Time-to-Market and Enhanced Cost-Savings Benefits for IP-based, MicroTCA(R) Communication Systems

ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Performance Technologies (NASDAQ: PTIX), a leading provider of innovative network communications solutions, today announced that its IPnexus(R) MicroTCA(R) systems now support an AdvancedMC(TM) option featuring the Intel(R) EP80579 system-on-a-chip (SoC) integrated processor. The new AMC123, an x86 Intel-based module, combines high-performance compute capabilities with low power consumption, which makes it an exceptional compute device for cluster computing, edge, wireless, or aerospace/defense communications and control applications. The design is cost-optimized, significantly lowering total cost-of-ownership (TCO) compared to other processing options, without compromising on performance.

Engineers and system architects face incredible pressures of shrinking budgets, lower margins, higher costs, and accelerated time schedules when developing new communication systems. In addition, the pressures of achieving highest performance, lowest cost per watt, longest possible product life cycle, as well as eliminating the complexities of software and hardware integration, can significantly delay product rollout and impact profits. Performance Technologies has taken the approach of providing the industry's most tightly integrated combination of platforms, compute modules, and a comprehensive suite of software available from a single vendor. The result for system architects is the ability to arrive much quicker at the application stage where they can concentrate on developing their application specialties instead of losing time and resources integrating various components.

Using Performance Technologies' award-winning IPnexus MicroTCA systems powered by the new AMC123, designers have virtually endless options for systems that are operational right out-of-the-box. Applications include LTE, WiMAX, media and signaling gateways, military communication systems, and ground control systems. The 1U application-ready systems come standard with an integrated processing module, such as the Intel(R) EP80579 or Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo processors, NexusWare(R), Performance Technologies' Registered 4.0 Carrier Grade Linux(R), NexusWare Studio, a complete software development environment, and NexusWare Portal, a remote systems management tool.

"The current economic climate demands doing more with less. Companies in all industries must find ways to cost-effectively develop their communication products as well as bring them to market faster," said Tony Romero, senior product manager for Performance Technologies. "Our fully integrated systems featuring the EP80579 processor from Intel(R) provide an incredible value and best-of-class performance for MicroTCA(R) development."
