parvus CDMA Carrier Board offers PC/104 board design for CDMA wireless communications

parvus Corporation today announced the release of its CDMA
Carrier Board, a cellular modem carrier module for wide-spectrum communications applications.

Manufactured to PC/104 board specifications, the carrier board
enables Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to quickly
deploy CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access)-based, fixed, mobile or wireless devices. It supports standard cell phone features, including microphone, speakers and line-in/out.

The board includes two serial ports and a CDMA modem jack for simple integration of a wireless modem (such as offered by Sierra Wireless and others).

* Dual serial control and data interfaces (COM1, COM2)
* Xilinx programming logic
* LED status indicator
* Small PC/104 form factor
* National Semiconductor PC16552DV DUART
* 0°C to +70°C operating range
* Low power consumption
* Rugged performance and environmental specs
* Onboard power supply requires only 5 Vdc
* CDMA jack
* COM1 configurable as pass-through to CDMA

The CDMA Carrier Board is ideally suited for embedded microcomputers in devices commonly found in the avionics/aerospace, defense, factory automation, light industrial, medical, telecom and transportation fields, such as distributed communications systems, point-of-sale devices, mobile terminals, industrial meters, vehicle or fleet management applications, and remote data logging nodes, etc.

Systems development projects not using the PC/104 bus can configure the CDMA Board to communicate directly with the CDMA modem, by changing jumper settings and bypassing the PC/104 bus with a standard serial port.


Formed in 1983, parvus Corporation is an ISO-9001 certified designer, manufacturer, and systems integrator of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) PC/104 products for embedded control environments. Its rugged, compact circuit boards and chassis systems offer feature-rich, low-cost design solutions for
military and commercial applications.
