PC/104+ CPU Module - Intel Atom Z500

The ISIS module consists of a PC/104+ carrier board coupled with the Catalyst XL Small Form Factor module. The ISIS module is ideal in any design where X86 compatibility, low power, high performance and a wide range of peripherals must be combined; it is also perfect to bring new life to existing projects by providing a simple and effective upgrade path for legacy PC/104 CPU modules. (NOT RECOMMENDED FOR NEW DESIGNS)

Feature rich, Intel Architecture - The ISIS is based on the powerful Intel Atom Z500 series processor with CPU speedsfrom 1.1GHz up to 1.6GHz and packs a large number of peripherals in the compact and efficient PC/104+ form factor
Low Power Design - Eurotech’s low power, fanless design allows the ISIS to deliver extensive capabilities while using only 7 - 8W power
Expandability - A combination of PC/104 (ISA), PC/104+(PCI) and PCI Express MiniCard makes interfacing to real-world I/O and to the latest wireless technologies straight forward
Upgrade for existing applications - Legacy applications based on the ISA bus can be injected with the capability and performance of a cutting-edge platform
ESF support - The ISIS supports Everyware Software Framework (ESF): simple software development and portability to new hardware platforms
EC ready - Enjoy the benefit of the Everyware Cloud (EC): dramatically cut Time-to-Market when building highly scalable, robust applications that connect devices to business applications
Application-ready Development Kits - Eurotech’s fullfeatured application-ready Development Kits help customers begin application development quickly


The ISIS processor board provides all the benefits of the Intel Atom Z500 series processor, while bundling a rich set of functions and options in a PC/104+ form factor.
The ISIS offers high-performance x86 compatibility in a fanless design that requires only a fraction of the power previously needed for comparable systems: with a requirement of only 7-8W (typical), a full range of on board peripherals are provided, including eight USB 2.0 ports, VGA, LVDS, HD-Audio, RS-232/RS-422/RS-485, Ethernet, GPIO and IDE.
Expansion buses include a combination of PC/104 (ISA), PC/104+ (PCI) and PCI Express MiniCard, so interfacing to real-world I/O or the latest wireless technology is easy. Running at 1.1GHz or 1.6GHz, the ISIS has all the functionality and connectivity previously associated with much larger and more power-hungry systems.
The ISIS comes with up to 1GB of DDR2 RAM and 4GB of soldered-down Flash for security and durability. Further solid-state Flash expansion is possible via an SDIO socket; on-board GPS is available as an option.
ISIS is compatible with all major desktop operating systems, and is also available with pre-installed, ready to run, embedded operating systems including Windows XP, XP Embedded and Wind River Linux 3.0.
