computers (F. Hernandez)

We need to replace the guts of two Kontron 3U rackmount machines due to obsolescence and hardware failure. Since this looks just like a typical civilian project, I don’t anticipate it being to much of a time sink. The goal is to have a stand-alone machine to run nothing but the accelerator control system and a separate general-use machine for all the ancillary experiment-specific DAQ and data-processing applications.

components needed are:
1) motherboard
2) CPU
3) graphics card (preferably one card with 2 DVI-D connectors)
4) hard drive (2 x 1TB each machine, so 4 total)
5) RAM (4 GB per machine)

I suggest direct communication with Kontron for items 1 and 2, and a standard consumer electronics vendor like Newegg or similar for 3-5. Other miscellany may be suggested. I’ll start by suggesting an Ergotron MD102 or similar, plus a Morsified Samsung 203b, should make an adequate accelerator control display.

    Hi all! After much wait, Scot from Kontron got back to me. He says that the i7 is under certification and will not be available for at least another quarter. Questions: shall we wait? Or go for a Q2C or C2C solution?
