    Finding a PC

    The PIKA Document titled "Release notes" contains recommended PC specifications as well contains a section on Performance Benchmarks based on MIPS and Number of PIKA ports.

    PIKA PCI Boards - Will work in PCI and PCI-X slots in a PC

    PIKA PCIe Boards - Will work in 1x (lane) to 8x (lane) slots

    Dell and HPs commodity priced PC market is providing mostly PCIe slots now and only a few PCI slots for backwards compatibility. Customers that need 3-6 PCI slot systems are now find it harder to locate PC options.

    What choices do you have?
    • Contact Dell, HP, and Sun for their recommendations
    • Move to Industrial Solutions
    • Have a system custom built at a local computer store using ASUS or Intel motherboards
