Concurrent Technologies has announced, as part of its critical embedded product range, the release of a 6U CompactPCI SBC based on Intel’s 45nm process technology.

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

The board is suitable for CPU-intensive processing applications whereby the processor’s dual cores can access up to 8Gb of on board soldered DDR3 dual-channel SDRAM at up to 16Gb.

Commercial and extended temperature versions are now available and ruggedised, conduction-cooled or air-cooled, versions will be available shortly.

Applications for this family of boards are expected within the defence, industrial control and transportation markets.

The PP 531/06x is based on a platform consisting of the 2.26GHz 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 Mbytes), 1066 MHz Front Side Bus, improved power management and support 64-bit operating systems.

The Mobile Intel GS45 mobile class chipset accesses up to 8Gb DDR3-1066 soldered dual-channel SDRAM.

For I/O control and data processing flexibility, the PP 531/06x supports two PMC/XMC sites with front and rear I/O, PICMG 2.16 (Ethernet fabric), PICMG 2.9 (IPMI) and PICMG 2.1 (hot swap).

Each PMC site supports up to 100MHz PCI-X operation as well as x4 PCI Express XMC interfaces.

XMC site one can also support x8 PCI Express.

The CompactPCI control/data plane throughput can operate at 33/66MHz backplane PCI signaling speeds; while the PP 531/06x can operate as a system controller board, a peripheral board or as a satellite board (blade).

A range of onboard I/O is available to the user: the board supports four 10/100/1000Mps Ethernet interfaces (two front and two rear) and the front panel also supports two USB 2.0 interfaces.

The rear panel supports keyboard, mouse, analogue graphics (2048 x 1536), two USB 2.0, RS-232/422/485, and two SATA300 interfaces.

Other features are a watchdog timer, long-duration timer, LAN boot firmware and options for an onboard 2.5-inch SATA300 hard disk drive and Compactflash storage.

For applications requiring rear I/O connections, a rear transition module is available.

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