There are quite a few embedded boards utilizing Intel Xeon Processors in multiple form factors ranging from COMExpress to ATCA. Check out the Intel Embedded Alliance directory for a list: http://www.intelcommsalliance.com/kshowcase/view/

Mercury claimed this was the world's first embedded computer to utilize Intel's Xeon processors. The biggest step that had to be made was figuring a way to solder down the Xeon, which is intended for a socket. There may be some less ruggedized applications that can use the Xeon in its socket, but still be classified as "embedded," but I couldn't find any. Do any of you guys (or gals) know of embedded applications of Intel's Xeon? (I asked Intel for a list, but got no response by press time.)
