Arlington, Tex.WinSystems recently launched its EBX-compatible Intel 1.8GHz Pentium M single board computer (SBC).
The EBC-855-G-1.8-1 is a RoHS-compliant, processor- and I/O-intensive board offering -40°C to +70°C temperature operation. Target applications include a wide range of industries, including automation, medical/diagnostic equipment, communications, security, test and measurement, and outdoor transaction terminals.
Based on Intel's 855GME chipset with the ICH 4 communications controller and integrated Extreme Graphics 2 video 3D controller, the EBC-855-G-1.8-1 offers long-term product availability and full x86-Pentium compatibility. It supports up to 1-Gbyte of industry-standard PC2700 SDRAM and up to 8GB of CompactFlash. It also supports rotational floppy and hard disk drives.
As a full-featured SBC, the EBC-855-G-1.8-1 provides a variety of
on-board peripherals, eliminating the need for additional standard I/O peripheral cards.
Its I/O interface features 10/100BaseT Ethernet port (with remote boot capability); VGA and dual-channel LVDS flat panel video, a miniPCI connector for a 802.11 wireless networking module, four USB 2.0 ports, four serial COM ports, AC97 audio (5.1 codec), LPT and a PS/2 port for keyboard and mouse.
A software programmable 48-line digital I/O controller provides input, output or output with readback for each I/O line. More I/O expansion is
possible by self-stacking modules plugged onto the PC/104 and PC/104-Plus connectors.
The EBC-855-G-1.8-1 operates Windows XP embedded and Linux software programs along with a vast software development tool set including device drivers and libraries. The EBC-855-G-1.8-1 also operates real-time operating systems (RTOS) such as QNX and VxWorks. Advanced features include custom splash screen, APM 1.2 and ACPI 1.0b power management
modes, PXE boot and multi-language usage.
It measures 146mm x 203mm (5.75" x 8.0") and requires only +5 volts and typically draws 2.1 Amps (typical) with 1-Gbyte of DDR SDRAM installed. WinSystems also offers a software developer's kit that provides the necessary hardware, software and cables to begin program development with the EBC-855-G-1.8-1.
