High-integration PC/104-Plus CPU modules that can feature Gigabit Ethernet, Fast Ethernet and up to Eight USB2.0 ports, ideal for communication-intensive applications
Amaro (Udine, Italy) 3rd September 2007
. Today Eurotech has unveiled the CPU-1472 and CPU-1474
, two PC/104-Plus RoHS compliant Single Board Computers (SBCs) developed to be smart and rugged solutions for embedded, high performance and communication-intensive applications
. They can be used as the central computing and data management unit within security & surveillance, digital audio & video processing, vehicle networking and control systems.
The CPU-1474 integrates one Gigabit Ethernet interface (1000/100/10Mbps), one Fast Ethernet interface (100/10Mbps) and four USB2.0 ports, while the CPU-1472 has eight USB2.0 ports and one Fast Ethernet interface (100/10Mbps).
Both CPU modules are fitted with the Intel? Celeron? M processor - 1GHz
, 512KB L2 cache, 400MHz FSB. Tthis offers the best combination of high performance computing features with minimal power consumption.
Both come with 512MB DDR-266MHz RAM
soldered onboard to enhance shock/vibration resistance.
Other connections to the external world include: two Serial ports (one RS-232 and one RS-232/422/485), a Graphics controller with Analog VGA and Flat Panel LVDS outputs, AC97 interface, Keyboard and Mouse connectors and an IDE ATA 100 controller that supports IDE Flash devices (Disk-On-Module, Compact Flash and Flash Disk).
The CPU modules are compatible with Linux, Windows XP Embedded and Windows CE
. Full support for Watchdog management and a Real Time Clock (external backup battery required) is provided and can be customized to match specific customer needs.
The BIOS is embedded and located in a 1MB Flash EPROM that is fully re-programmable onboard. The set-up parameters are saved in Flash to allow the module to operate without any battery.
Both modules have been designed to operate without any active cooling over standard (0 to +60?C) or extended (-40 to +85?C) temperature ranges
. All modules are individually tested and qualified across the full operating temperature range before shipping: this is done to ensure highest possible reliability.
