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.)
