Other features include optional support for up to up to 288 MB of disk-on-chip storage, PMC expansion, and a rear I/O version with selectable transition modules. Operating support includes Windows NT Embedded, VxWorks, QNX and Linux. Pricing starts at $2,550 each. PEP MODULAR COMPUTERS, Pittsburgh, PA. (412) 921-3322.
