Both products are based on the 933MHz Intel Pentium III processor and are available with 512MB or 1GB of memory. Additionally, the EPC-6321 is available with dual gigabit Ethernet, via a Jn4 connector, making it PICMG An industry consortium that develops specifications for backplanes and interconnects for electronic equipment in the industrial and telecom fields. It was founded in 1994 as the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group, hence the acronym. 2.15 compatible.
The new RadiSys PrPMCs are ultra-dense CPUs offering OEMs high performance in a modular, upgradeable, standard PMC form factor. The processing power and memory combined in a small package make the EPC-6320 and EPC-6321 ideal for use in deeply embedded applications, like control plane processing in service provider equipment and processor offload in enterprise security systems.
Historically, single-board computers included the processor, supporting chipset and memory, and all I/O (Input/Output) The transfer of data between the CPU and a peripheral device. Every transfer is an output from one device and an input to another. See PC input/output.
I/O - Input/Output on a single board. This approach required a complete board redesign to accommodate any processor or I/O change. RadiSys shattered this model by delivering high performance, modular, upgradeable Intel Architecture (IA) PrPMCs that allow OEMs to configure their products according to price, performance and application needs. The ability to properly scale the processing power and memory requirements to the application, without a complete redesign, allows them to get a better product to market, faster and more economically.

VdC Verband der Cigarettenindustrie (Venture Development Corporation) describes these as "computers-on modules", or "COMs." According to VDC, "COMs are designed and marketed to be integral parts of carriers that require integrated on-board computing power." In a January 2003 report, VDC (Venture Development Corporation) estimated worldwide COM (1) (Computer Output Microfilm) Creating microfilm or microfiche from the computer.

The research company estimates that number to reach $40 7.5 million ($364.4 million carrier boards only) in 2006.
"We're building on the success of our previous PrPMC products with the addition of the EPC-6320 and 6321," said Fred Yentz, vice president for RadiSys. "Expanding our EPC family of products is proof of our commitment to support Intel technology and is evidence that we are providing customers with solutions that help them develop better products faster and more economically."
The EPC-6321 provides PICMG 2.15 compliance with dual gigabit Ethernet through a Jn4 connector. PICMG 2.15 compliance enables a standardized method of providing processor modularity within CompactPCI 2.16 and ATCA See AdvancedTCA. carrier boards. The EPC-6320 offers a legacy Jn4 pin-out to the EPC-6315 for legacy EPC-6315 users allowing them a seamless upgrade.
About the EPC-6320 and EPC-6321
The EPC-6320 and EPC-6321 are 74mm x 149mm, complying with the streamlined PrPMC standard form factor. Both feature the 933MHz Intel Pentium III processor, are available with 512MB or 1GB of memory and offer dual gigabit Ethernet support. To maximize overall system performance, the EPC-6320 and EPC-6321 incorporate the RadiSys 82600 chipset. This integrated chipset allows either to become a Monarch or Non-monarch PrPMC via the automatic configuration based on the strapping of the slot on the baseboard base·board
