With support for up to five CPCIe add-in boards and four CPCI boards, the 6U CompactPCI Express CPCIe CPU board from One Stop Systems is well-suited for OEMs migrating from CPCI to CPCIe. The board, which is being introduced at ESC, offers two PCI Express x8 (PCIe) links and four PCIe x4 links to the backplane while providing Core-Duo performance.
The main board also provides a video port to the on-board ATI Rage Mobility graphics controller in addition to one PMC site and one XMC site. The accompanying rear transition module (RTM) has two Gigabit Ethernet ports and two USB ports in addition to the one of each on the main board. In addition, the RTM supports a CompactFlash module and/or a 2.5-inch SATA hard drive using the hard drive mezzanine card.
The 6U CPCIe CPU board provides the performance required to power all slots of One Stop Systems’ 8U hybrid CPCIe/CPCI platform. Six individually hot swappable blowers provide superior cooling to all boards while a system monitor supplies data on the health of the system.
The 6U CPCIe CPU board is competitively priced with comparable 6U CPCI CPU boards. OEM volumes are shipping now for about $3995, depending on the configuration.
