Embedded: Triple-Processor Blade Server Plugs Into cPSB Slot

The Katana3752, a CompactPCI Packet Switched Backplane (cPSB) blade server, comes with three IBM 750GX processor complexes. Each complex has its own gigabyte of error-correction-code SDRAM and 64 Mbytes of flash memory. The Broadcom BCM5691 managed Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch links each complex to two additional Gigabit Ethernet links. There's also a front-panel GbE interface for debugging. The board supports VxWorks and Linux. Prices start at $6100.
