Motorola Computer Group recently introduced the XIP68, a
ï¿½universalï¿½ CompactPCI-based single-board computer, designed to operate as
a host-slot controller or peripheral slot board and within bus-free
systems such as those based on the CompactPCI Packet Switched Backplane (CPSB
or PICMG 2.16) specification. The Motorola XIP68 offers a balance of
performance, functionality, and flexibility so OEMs can use it as a common
platform across their telecom applications. It features up to two 1 GHz
Intel Pentium III processors, dual 10/100/1000BaseTX Ethernet -- via PCIMG
2.16 (CPSB) or rear transition module, up to 2GB of ECC protected SDRAM,
multiple internal PCI busses to ensure I/O bandwidth, and up to two PMC

Todayï¿½s high-speed processors create higher frequencies, making EMC
containment more challenging. The EMC solution of Elmaï¿½s Type 4F IPC
enclosure is designed to provide up to 30db of attenuation at frequencies
of up to 30 GHz. Designed to fit in 19ï¿½ racks, the Type 4F is 4U high and
only 445 mm deep (versions with a built-in depth of 545 mm and a 2U
chassis for riser or low-profile cards will follow). The housing is
designed for ATX and AT motherboards up to 14 slots (eight-, 10, and
12-slot versions are optional). It visibly accommodates three 5.25ï¿½ CD-ROM
and a 3.5ï¿½ FDD cassette mechanism, as well as up to three more 3.5ï¿½ HDD
internally. The hot-dip galvanized finishing of the housing prevents
The IPC enclosure is cooled via positive pressure with ducting to
ensure maximum airflow to the cards, where it is needed. The heat build-up
can optionally be monitored with a temperature sensor. Also, the front fan
filter can be replaced fast and easily. The power supply units have 250W,
300W, 350W or 2 x 300W redundant options.

Extreme Engineeringï¿½s XCalibur1000 is a 6U CompactPCI board supporting
Broadcomï¿½s ï¿½Super E-Commerce Processor.ï¿½ Known as the ï¿½Encryption Blade,ï¿½
XCalibur1000 is powered by a single or dual IBM 750FX PowerPC and supports
the PICMG 2.16 standard. The Broadcom Super E-Commerce Processor (BCM5821)
offers encryption performance of 4,000 1,024-bit RSA transaction/second
and 3,000 IKE negotiations/sec. Bulk SSL encryption and authentication
performance is 300 Mbps and IPsec performance is 470 Mbps. Front panel
serial and dual Gigabit Ethernet ports are complimented by dual PCI-X PMC
module sites. Designed to support high-speed I/O, these PMC sites can be
populated with SCSI320, FibreChannel or Myrinet PMC modules. For processor
intensive applications, PrPMCï¿½s can be added. XCalibur also auto-senses
its slot location and can run in system or non-system mode, decreasing
spares requirements for end users.
Utilizing technology from the high-volume PC laptop market, XCalibur
1000 provides dual SO-DIMM SDRAM sockets, supporting 128MB to 2GB of DDR
memory running at 266MHz. For high-volume customers, Extreme encourages
customer furnished memory to lower the total cost of ownership.

Themis Computerï¿½s USPIIIi VMEbus computers incorporate Sun Microsystems
UltraSPARC IIIi processors and a new system architecture and are designed
to provide users with exceptional computing speed, graphics, and I/O
capabilities. The new USPIIIi architecture delivers high data bandwidth,
providing next-generation I/O performance for government, industrial,
military, and commercial VME embedded processing applications. The USPIIIi
is a multi-slot VME board assembly that implements a dual SMP UltraSPARC
IIIi architecture. The USPIIIi may be configured with either one or two
UltraSPARC IIIi CPUs.
The single CPU configuration consists of an I/O board and a CPU board
assembly occupying two VME slots. An additional processor board is
available as an ordering option; it connects to the first CPU board via
the UltraSPARC IIIi processor local bus. A dual-CPU configuration occupies
three VME slots. Although the I/O board includes a rich complement of I/O
functionality, up to two additional 6U VME I/O boards may be configured
with the base I/O board. The USPIIIi runs the Solaris 8 and Solaris 9
Operating Environments. The USPIIIi can also run 64-bit applications
unmodified from the Solaris 7 Operating Environment, as well as 32-bit
applications from previous versions of the Solaris Operating Environment,
making these systems compatible with previous systems and software.
