Concurrent Introduces CompactPCI Single Board Computer with Dual Xeon

3/20/2003 - Concurrent Technologies announces its latest CompactPCI single board computer – a dual Xeon processor board. The PP 220/01x uses two 2.0GHz Low Voltage Intel® Xeon Processors, where each processor works within a 35W thermal envelope. The Xeon processor supports a 400MHz front side bus, 512 Kbytes of high-speed L2 cache, NetburstTM Microarchitecture and Hyper-Threading Technology. The board features the ServerworksTM Grand ChampionTM LE System I/OTM core logic (system bus up to 3.2Gbytes/s), up to 4 Gbytes 200MHz DDR SDRAM (with ECC), Ultra-160 SCSI interface, a 64-bit 66MHz PMC site and dual gigabit Ethernet. The board supports PICMG® 2.16, PICMG 2.9, PICMG 2.1, 33/66MHz CompactPCI signaling and can operate as a system controller board or a satellite board. The PP 220/01x is ideally suited to intensive multitasking applications requiring scalability and high performance, such as web-serving, search engines, storage (NAS, SAN), traffic management, voice over IP, telecommunications servers, network management, security, and load balancing.

As well as the dual Gigabit Ethernet, Ultra-160 SCSI and PMC interfaces, the PP 220/01x also features an EIDE interface with an installed EIDE connection to a CompactFlashTM/IBM® MicrodriveTM carrier. There is an EIDE option for an on-board 2.5-inch disk drive (up to UDMA100). Other features provided are a PC real-time clock, floppy disk interface, 2 RS232 channels, 2 USB ports, parallel printer port, watchdog timer, keyboard/mouse interface, and an Asiliant Technologies 69030 graphics interface including DVI-D support.

For increased reliability, as with all Concurrent Technologies’ designs, passive heat sinks are used in preference to fans for cooling the two CPUs. To facilitate applications requiring rear I/O connections, the PP 220/01x uses the optional AD PP4/001 transition module. Options are available for a blank or populated front panel.

For ease of integration, the PP 220/01x supports many of today’s leading operating systems, including Linux®, Windows® XP, Windows® 2000, Windows NT® and QNX®. LAN boot firmware is also supported.
