About the eTX-Lx05
The eTX-Lx05 ECM, part of DTI's embedded product offering, features an Intel® Pentium® III or Celeron® low power processor, the Intel® 815E chipset, and up to 512MB PC100/133 SDRAM on a single 144-pin SODIMM socket. The integrated 2D/3D AGP4X video controller is enhanced with a 8MB display cache simultaneous LVDS, digital flat panel and CRT output; the integrated AC'97 2.1 controller and CODEC provide excellent audio quality. The 10 Base-T/100 Base-TX Ethernet and Ultra ATA/100 EIDE controllers support fast data/file transfer; four Universal Serial Bus (USB), two serial, and one shared, selectable parallel/floppy port round out the basic board.
The eTX-Lx05 AMI BIOS, in field upgradeable Flash, supports software Ethernet option ROM enable/disable, video override, serial/parallel port re-mapping/disable, keyboard disable, and console redirection. Other features include hardware monitor (input voltages, temperature), programmable two-stage watchdog timer, battery-backed real time clock, power fail circuit, SMBIOS v2.3.1 and S.M.A.R.T. support.
Highly configurable. Low power. Embedded application robustness. Long production life. Diversified Technology's eTX-Lx05 industrial ECM is a versatile processor solution with its System-On-Module (SOM) design to meet the cost effective and space limited requirements of the embedded market. Production shipments begin in September.
Pricing and Availability
The eTX-Lx05 pricing starts at $570.00 for a 400MHz ULV Celeron Processor with 256KB Cache and goes to $795.00 for a 933MHz LP Pentium III Processor with 512KB Cache. Production shipments will begin in October.
