COLCHESTER, England, 28 Aug. 2009. Concurrent Technologies Plc in Colchester, England, is introducing a CompactPCIembedded computer in 6U form factor for Intel-based embedded systems. The PP 531/06x 6U CompactPCI single board computer is based on Intel's 45-nanometer process technology.

The PP 531/06x one slot 6U CompactPCI embedded computingmodule uses mobile dual core processor from the Intel embedded roadmap, the 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor SP9300 or the 1.86 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor SL9400.

The computer boards are for CPU intensive processing applications in defense systems, other mil apps, industrial control, and transportation. Commercial and extended temperature versions are available, and conduction cooled or air-cooled versions for rugged systems in demanding environments will be available soon, company officials say.

The processor's dual cores can access as much as eight gigabytes of on board soldered DDR3 dual channel SDRAM as fast as gigabytes per second. As one slot solution, this combination of high performance data processing, and an extensive range of I/O interfaces, plus two PMC/XMC sites.

The PP 531/06x is based on a platform consisting of the 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor SP9300 or the 1.86 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor SL9400, the Intel GS45 Graphics Memory Controller Hub and the Intel I/O Controller Hub 9M-E. The dual core processors offer a large shared last level cache (6 megabytes), 1066 MHz Front Side Bus, improved power management and support 64-bit operating systems.

Each PMC site supports up to 100 MHz PCI-X operation as well as x4 PCI Express XMC interfaces; XMC site 1 can also support x8 PCI Express. The CompactPCI control/data plane throughput can operate at 33/66 MHz backplane PCI signaling speeds; the PP 531/06x can operate as a system controller board, a peripheral board or as a satellite board (blade).

The PP 531/06x family of boards support many of today's leading operating systems, including Linux, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows XP Embedded, Windows XP, Solaris, VxWorks and QNX.
