The newest dual-processor, 6U, CompactPCI single-board computer (SBC) from Concurrent Technologies boasts two 1.66-GHz Intel Dual-Core Xeon ULV processors. Complemented by the Intel E7520 server-class chipset and 6300ESB ICH, the four processor cores on the PP 421/23x can access up to 8 Gbytes of onboard DDR2 ECC dual-channel SDRAM at up to 6.4 Gbytes/s. The memory consists of up to 4 Gbytes soldered and 4 Gbytes of SODIMM. The PP 421/23x can operate as a system controller board or as a satellite board (blade) in a CompactPCI system, along with support for various operating systems.

For I/O flexibility, the SBC includes a PMC (PCI mezzanine card) site supporting both front and rear I/O, two SATA150 interfaces, two graphics interfaces, four Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, PICMG 2.16 (Ethernet switched fabric), PICMG 2.9 (IPMI), and PICMG 2.1 (hot swap). Onboard I/O support includes four 10/100/1000 Ethernet interfaces, two front and two rear. The front panel also supports a USB 2.0, RS 232, analog graphics, keyboard, and mouse interfaces. In addition to the PMC rear I/O, the rear panel supports three more USB 2.0, two more RS-232, two SATA150, one EIDE, digital graphics, keyboard, and mouse interfaces. Other features are a watchdog timer, LAN boot firmware, and options for an onboard 2.5-inch EIDE hard disk drive and/or CompactFlash EIDE storage. For applications requiring rear I/O connections, a rear transition module is also available.
