SunPCi card with 400 MHz processor

SunPCi is a series of Single Board Computers with a PCI connector that adds hardware which enables Sun workstations to act as an 'PC compatible' computer. It includes an x86 processor, RAM, expansion ports, and an onboard graphics controller, allowing complete x86 operating environments on Sun Workstations. Its present incarnation is the SunPCi IIIPro based on a Mobile 1.6-GHz AMD Athlon XP 2100+ processor. These cards are the successor to the SunPC series of SBus cards.

The Sun PCi IIPro is currently (as of September 2006), supported by Sun Solaris 7, 8, and 9, but using some tricks can work on Solaris 10.[1] The Sun PCi III and IIIpro are supported by Sun Solaris 9 and 10 (with appropriate updates), and most recent OpenSolaris releases.
