Industries such as medical imaging, homeland security, and military defense call for rackmount systems that can run demanding software in space-constrained settings.  This Embedded Innovator article shows how designers can meet this challenge by using cluster computers, which group single board computers together in a common chassis.  It outlines the features and benefits of a cluster computer that incorporates quad-core Intel architecture processors, Trenton's PCI Express (PCIe) single board computers, and multi-segment, passive backplanes.
