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)
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.
