Single slot system controller for high-performance CompactPCI solutions

12 September 2001 Computer/Embedded Technology

Concurrent Technologies has released its latest high-performance CompactPCI system slot controller - the PP CP1/P3x. This board introduces the latest draft standard of PICMG2.16 (Packet Switching Backplane) which is an introduction to switched fabric applications, and IPMI (intelligent platform management interface). As a system controller, the PP CP1/P3x supports the PICMG 2.1 Hot Swap Specification. The board can also be used in satellite mode (standalone mode) for applications not requiring the CompactPCI backplane except for providing power.

Featuring the 850 MHz Pentium III processor and up to 1 GB DRAM within a single slot, this feature-rich board is ideal for a variety of applications, including those requiring long life availability, configuration control, and high reliability. Applications are expected in a variety of market sectors including defence, medical, and telecommunications.

The Intel 850 MHz Pentium III supports 100 MHz bus, and 256 KB of high-speed secondary cache. For increased reliability, as with all Concurrent Technologies' designs, heatsinks are used in preference to fans for cooling. The board provides a minimum of 512 MB of S-DRAM which can easily be upgraded to 1 GB using standard off-the-shelf DRAM modules. EIDE is supported and an optional on-board 2,5" disk drive is available within a single slot. Alternatively, 1 or 2 CompactFlash modules can be installed. In addition, 8 MB of application flash memory is provided.

Two fast Ethernet channels are provided using Intel 82599ER devices and each channel supports 10Base-T and 100 Base-TX. The channels are individually switchable between the front panel RJ45 connectors and rear connectors. Support is also provided for PICMG 2.16 Packet Switching Backplane.

Two RS232 serial channels are provided, together with a graphics interface with AGP support. Other interfaces include keyboard and mouse interface, PC realtime clock, 2 USB interfaces, parallel printer, watchdog timer, system fan monitor and speaker interface.
