IBASE Technology, a manufacturer of industrial motherboards and embedded solutions, announced the release of their IB995 PICMG 1.3 Full-Size CPU Card, a slot-card server created for the 8th Gen and 9th Gen (“Coffee Lake Refresh”) of Intel’s Core processors with support for up to 8 cores and CNVi architecture for wireless devices.
The CPU Card offers performance for smart security and hardware monitoring features for real-time applications in process control, surveillance or imaging in the field of automation, transportation, medical technology, and digital surveillance markets.
The IB995 is currently offered in 3 models, combined with various chipsets: C246 (IB995AF-C246), Q370 (IB995AF) and H310 (IB995EF) - all of which include an M.2 storage interface with NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) that allows storage with write speeds of up to 3500MB/s (7 times over SATA SSDs), and up to 32 GB of DDR4-2166/2400 memory. Furthermore, the board offers TPM 2.0 to implement hardware-based security that carries out cryptographic operations for access control and authentication and prevent phishing attacks.
The IB995 renders a variety of interface and expansion versatility. They cover DVI-D, DVI-I, and 24-bit dual-channel video outputs, and three USB 2.0, five USB 3.0, five SATA III with RAID, four serial ports and twoM.2 sockets (M/E key). It also comes with two Gigabit Ethernet, a PCIe x16 (from backplane), and four PCIe x1 expansion slots (configurable as one PCIe x4).

Multi-core chips from Intel and AMD offer an exciting boost in speed and responsiveness and lots of opportunities for multiprocessing on regular desktop computers. However, they also present a challenge: More than ever, multithreading is a must for an excellent performance.
This guide describes how to maximize the advantages of these processors through a portable C++ library that works on Windows, Linux, Macintosh, and Unix systems. With it, you will discover how to use Intel Threading Building Blocks (TBB) efficiently for parallel programming without having to be a threading expert.
Written by James Reinders, Chief Evangelist of Intel Software Products, and based on the experience of Intel's developers and customers, this book explains the critical tasks in multithreading and how to accomplish them with TBB in a portable and robust manner.
With plenty of examples and full reference material, the book lays out familiar patterns of uses, reveals the gotchas in TBB, and gives essential guidelines for choosing among alternatives to get the best performance.
