Dual PMC Host Board suits intensive I/O applications.

Press Release Summary:



Single-slot Model PP 310/01x supports 1.6 GHz Intel® Pentium M processor with up to 2 Gbytes 200 MHz DDR ECC SDRAM and 1 Mbyte high-speed L2 cache. It includes dual 64-bit PMC sites with front and rear I/O. Each site supports 3.3 or 5V PCI signaling and is available for user modules, standard PMC, or PrPMC modules. Board supports dual Gigabit Ethernet, PICMG® 2.16, PICMG 2.9, and PICMG 2.1. It can operate as system controller, peripheral, or satellite board.



Original Press Release:



1.6 GHz Pentium® M CompactPCI® Dual PMC Host Board



November 2003 - Concurrent Technologies is pleased to announce their single slot Pentium M based CompactPCI dual PMC Host board. The PP 310/01x supports the 1.6GHz Intel® Pentium M processor with up to 2 Gbytes 200MHz DDR ECC SDRAM. To give better I/O performance, and for lower power consumption, Concurrent Technologies chose the ServerWorks(TM) GC-LE chipset. As well as two PMC sites with front and rear I/O, the PP 310/01x supports dual Gigabit Ethernet (via a PCI-X bus), PICMG® 2.16 (Packet Switching Backplane), PICMG 2.9 (IPMI) and PICMG 2.1 (hot swap). The PP 310/01x can operate as a system controller board, a peripheral board or as a satellite board (blade) and is front and rear plug compatible wilth Concurrent Technologies' popular PP 110/01x family.

At the core of the design is the low power 1.6GHz Intel Pentium M Processor in a FC-PGA package with 1 Mbyte of high-speed secondary (L2) on-die cache. Designed for scalability, the
PP 310/01x will support faster versions of the processors as they become available. For increased reliability heat sinks are used in preference to fans for cooling the processor.

As an intelligent PMC carrier with dual 64-bit 66MHz PMC sites, the PP 310/01x is ideally suited to intensive I/O or data applications. Each site supports 3.3V or 5V PCI signaling and is
available for user modules, standard PMC or PrPMC modules. As well as front I/O, the PMC I/O connector signals from both PMC sites are routed to the rear connectors (J4 is not used). Plus,
for faster CompactPCI control/data plane throughput the PP 310/01x can auto-configure, on insertion/power-up, in a system operating at 66MHz backplane PCI signaling speeds.

To cater for embedded applications there is 32 Mbytes of Application Flash memory and 512 Kbytes of battery backed SRAM. For a wider range of applications there is an EIDE interface
(up to Ultra-DMA100), with installed EIDE options for an on-board EIDE 2.5-inch disk drive or CompactFlash(TM)/IBM® (Hitachi) Microdrive(TM) carrier, both within a single slot.

Other features available are dual 10baseT/100base-TX/1000baseT Ethernet interfaces, graphics interface, keyboard/mouse interface, floppy disk interface, 3 RS232 serial channels, 1 USB port, parallel printer port, PC real-time clock, watchdog timer and long duration timer. LAN boot firmware is included as well. For applications requiring rear I/O connections a transition module is available.

For ease of integration, the PP 310/01x supports many of today's leading operating systems, including VxWorks®, Linux®, Windows® 2000, Windows NT®, Windows® XP Embedded and QNX®.

PP 310/01x prices start from approximately $3100.
