Integrating one of two possible Kontron PICMG SBCs, the PxV414 provides a scalable 4U open-architecture system solution designed for industrial automation, telecom, security, and transport applications. Both of Kontron's SBCs are Socket 3-based architecture.

With Kontron's PCI-747 SBC, the PxV414 is suited for telecom and security applications. The SBC can be equipped with a 1GHz Pentium III or 850MHz Celeron processor. It also features Intel's 815E chipset, up to 51MB SDRAM, and I/O interfaces including dual Ethernet channels (10/100Base-T), onboard video with 4MB cache, USB port and a micro-PCI slot.

Equipped with Kontron's PCI-946 SBC powered by an 850MHz Pentium III or 566MHz Celeron processor, the PxV414 is suited for industrial automation and transportation applications. The SBC also features an Intel 440BX chipset and up to 768MB SDRAM. It also Includes an Ethernet channel (10/100Base-T), onboard video, two USB 1.1 ports, two serial ports (RS232 and COM2), SCSI-3 and ECP/EPP parallel port.

The PxV414 offers a flexible 14-slot PICMG backplane configurations and supports up to 5 drive bays (3 accessible, 2 non-accessible). It is also capable of supporting fieldbus technologies used in automation and robotics through the use of integral fieldbus cards.

The platform supports Windows 2000/NT/98/ME, Linux, QNX and the Solaris OS. Optional hardware like a 32MB PCI/VGA card, removable IDE or SCSI hard drive and an ATAPI CD-RW/DVD drive are available.

Constructed with the EPAC (Electronic Packaging Assembly Concept) technology, the PxV414 is priced starting at $2,070 per device.
