A family of European-designed printed circuit boards that uses a 96-pin plug rather than edge connectors. The 3U is a 4x6" board with one plug; the 6U is a 6x12" board with two plugs; the 9U is a 14x18" board with three plugs. See CompactPCI.
CompactPCI boards use the Eurocard form factor. This is a complete PC (sans hard disk) from Xtech. Note the CompactPCI connector at the back of the card (right). (Image courtesy of Xtech Embedded Computers.)
