Portwell Announces Ultra Low Voltage CAD-0205 Desktop Network Appliance Based on the New Intel Atom Processor N450

FREMONT, CALIF. - American Portwell Technology, Inc. (, a wholly owned subsidiary of Portwell, Inc., a world-leading innovator in the Network Security market, and a member of the Intel® Embedded Alliance, announces the ultra low voltage CAD-0205 desktop network appliance, utilizing the new Intel® Atom(TM) processor N450.

CAD-0205 measures approximately half the size of A4 paper, so its compact footprint means it can be placed easily anywhere in the office. "With the latest Intel Atom processor N450, we can design CAD-0205 smaller than previous products," says Mark Huang, product marketing manager of American Portwell Technology Inc. The CAD-0205 supports four GbE ports and two pairs of bypass segments. It is able to support one 2.5" HDD and up to 2GB memory. Other features including one RJ45 console port, dual USB ports, one Mini PCIe slot and VGA are supported. "It is a power saving solution," says Huang. "CAD-0205, based on the new Intel Atom processor N450, can reduce electricity costs and provide great performance per watt." American Portwell's CAD-0205 is suitable for entry-level network security applications, including UTM, IDS/IPS, Content Filtering, Anti-virus and Firewall. It can also be used as a router/switcher and other non-security based applications, such as VPN, load balancing, network monitoring and QoS.

CAD-0205 allows network application customers to consolidate solutions and reduce development cost. The new systems provide network application customers with a high performance/watt solution with a competitive price from an appliance that fits in tight spaces such as found in small offices and home offices.

Two-Chip Platform Simplicity Ideal for Network Security Solution The Intel Atom processor N450 delivers strong performance for packet transmission and enables a space-efficient, two-chip platform design, making it ideal for network application developers. In addition, it has low power consumption and IA-64 architecture for software programming. Compact in size (7.5" W x 5.9" D x1.65" H), CAD-0205's maximum power consumption is less than 30 watts. Moreover, it is both China and EU RoHS and also REACH compliant.

CAD-0205 supports DDR2 667 non-ECC memory up to 2GB, four Gigabit Ethernet ports with two pairs of bypass segments through PCI-E x1 interface based on Intel 82583V Ethernet controllers, different storage devices such as 2.5" HDD or SSD (Solid State Drive) via serial ATA and CF (Compact Flash), one slot for PCI Express Mini Card supporting both PCI-E x1 and USB 2.0 connectivity, dual USB ports, one RS232 console through RJ45 interface and semi-cut holes for VGA connector and wireless antennas. With front LED and rear I/O access, it is easy to customize the panel and case.

Available now, CAD-0205 is the ideal platform solution for Network Security such as Firewall, VPN, IDS/IPS, Anti-Spam, Anti-virus and UTM; Network Management such as routers, RAS gateways, QoS, wireless controllers and streaming. Other applications include medical DICOM and PACS, and industrial automation control via Ethernet TCP/IP. In addition, the CAD-0205 can function as a security hardware platform that meets the requirements of Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX).
