6U CompactPCI single-board computer with Intel Core processor introduced by Concurrent

WOBURN, Mass., 6 Feb. 2012. Concurrent Technologies Inc. in Woburn, Mass., is introducing the PP 81x/x9x single-slot air-cooled 6U CompactPCI single-board computer for high-performance systems upgrades that contain earlier generations of 6U CompactPCI embedded computing boards.

The PP 81x/x9x has the 2nd Generation Intel Core microprocessor with integrated Intel memory/graphics controller, which according to the Intel embedded roadmap offers at least seven years of availability. The board has as much as eight gigabytes of DDR3-1333 ECC SDRAM.

The PP 81x/x9x supports as many as two independent PMC/XMC sites, each site offering performance to 133 MHz PCI-X PMC operation as well as x4/x8 PCI Express XMC interfaces. As an option, users can enable XMC modules to communicate with each other via the XMC Pn6 connectors between the two XMC sites independently of the main interconnecting buses.

The boards can operate as a system controller board, a peripheral board, or as a satellite blade. Also included is PICMG 2.16 (Ethernet fabric), PICMG 2.9 (IPMI) and PICMG 2.1 (hot swap); the CompactPCI backplane interface operates at 33/66 MHz PCI signalling speeds.

The PP 81x/x9x includes as many as four 10/100/1000-megabit-per-second Ethernet interfaces (two front and two rear) and the front panel also provides two USB 2.0, RS-232, dual-head graphics via two digital DVI-D, and analog VGA interfaces.

An additional two USB 2.0 ports are optional via the front panel. The rear I/O connections provide one further USB 2.0 port, an RS-232 port, two SATA300 mass storage interfaces, and an Intel High Definition Audio interface. Two rear I/O ports can be configured as either SATA or USB 2.0. Other features are a watchdog timer, long-duration timer, LAN boot firmware, and options for an onboard 2.5-inch SATA disk and a CompactFlash site.

Software support includes Windows 7, Windows XP, Windows Embedded Standard 7, Linux, and VxWorks. For more information contact Concurrent Technologies online at www.gocct.com.
