The VPXcel3 SBC341 is a 3U VPX Single Board Computer based on the Intel Core 2 Duo (Penryn) processor and is part of the VPXcel3 product family.  This processor is 45nm micro architecture delivering superior, high performance computing and energy-efficiency.

SBC341 combines all this processing capability with the Intel GS45 memory controller with a DDR3 memory interface and connection to the ICH9M I/O controller providing: 2x serial ports, 4x USB 2.0, Audio in and out, and Gigabit Ethernet.

For rugged computing, this single board computer is optimized for use in VPX systems with multiple PCI Express port options including a x16, x4, and x1. The x16 is designed to provide a dedicated communication path to a graphics processing unit, such as the GRA110. The x4 and x1 PCI Express ports allows high speed communication to other single board computers and I/O cards in order to build complex systems.

Alternatively, the 4-lane port can be configured as four single-lane ports.  If not using an off-board graphics processing unit, the GS45 utilizes its internal GMA 4500 graphics providing VGA video output. Stereo line-in and line-out capability provides audio support.

The SBC341 single board computer is available in both air- and conduction-cooled variants.
