    Thanks for reading this.

    I am looking for a cPCI controller that will run win2K or XP. It has to have

    operating temperature range of from -20C to 85C( this is a mandatory

    Also Needs a V(io) of 3.3 volts and I would like to be able to use a FLASH
    drive due to the temp extremes.

    Does anybody know of anyone who makes a product that might work for us?

    Thanks in Advance;

    C.W. Thomas

  3. We have had succes with SBCs from Men Mikro Systems. Their prices are
    very reasonable compared to some other SBC manufacturers.

    Your temperature range will exclude many boards; you may want to focus
    on boards intended for rugged/military environment. I've never needed
    those specs myself, but you could perhaps find some companies at
    picmg.org to choose from. I hear SBS, Kontron, Force/Motorola and others
    have such boards. (Most rugged stuff is 3U, could be a limitation)

    Nowadays I'd think most boards are +3.3V VI/O capable, so that wouldn't
    be much of an issue, unless you dig up some older stuff. If you are
    talking PMC VI/O, that can be a factory configurable option.

    (When you use a flash drive, be careful of how often you write new data,
    they are rather limited in cycles compared to a hard disk, and any
    operating system must be kept from wearing out such a disk too soon.)
