The NP-E42 is a PICMG 1.3 full-sized System Host Board (SHB), which utilizes 4th generation Intel® Core processor at core speeds up to 3.1GHz combined with the Intel Q87 Express chipset, and provides high-speed data transfer interfaces such as USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gb/s (SATA III).

It provides a wide range of storage, I/O, and expansion connectivities.  These include one PCIe x16, four PCIe x1 and four PCI, 6 COM ports, 12 USB ports (6 USB 3.0), and 4 SATA 6Gb/s supported RAID 0, 1, 5, 1+0 by Intel Rapid Storage Technology. It also supports up to 16-GB via dual-channel DDR3 1333/1600 MHz memory in two DIMM sockets.

The NP-E42 is ideally suited to applications requiring multi-tasking capabilities, high computing power, and high-speed data transfer rates such as industrial control, machine vision, and automation.
