Advantech Low Power Cost - Effective PCM-3355 PC/104 CPU Board
Advantech, the embedded board and integration services provider announces the addition of the PCM-3355 PC/104 CPU board with AMD LX800 and LX600 processors at 500 and 366MHz. PCM-3355 has standard dimensions of 96 x 90 mm and is totally fanless; making it well-suited for space-saving embedded applications. In addition, PCM-3355 delivers low power energy consumption (less than 7W), and comes with extended temperature support (-40~85º C) in a ruggedly built board with good vibration resistance.
As well as the LX800 processor, PCM-3355 also supports the LX600 processor. The AMD LX600 processor which runs at 366 MHz provides up to 16% more power saving and is a more cost-effective solution. Both LX800 and LX600 processors are best suited for those applications where power efficiency is more important than pure performance; especially in embedded applications using DOS, WinCE, and Linux operating systems. Supported operating systems include Windows XP, XP Embedded, Windows CE, Linux, QNX and VxWorks.
PCM-3355 is designed with ample I/O and storage interface, including three RS-232, one RS-422/485, one printer port, two USB 2.0, one 10/100 LAN, CompactFlash, and a single SATA interface. PC/104's self-stacking rugged mechanical architecture and extended temperature operation makes it ideal for outdoor applications in military and transportation fields. The legacy PC/104 connector provides full ISA signal connection to the carrier board-an essential feature in electrical power stations, and factory automation systems.
Advantech provides drivers and API for application development including SMbus, watchdog timer, hardware monitor, panel backlight on/off, and brightness control. In addition, a BIOS Flash tool allows customers to update and backup the BIOS on Windows XP Pro and Windows XP Embedded. Finally, a conformal coating and glued DRAM service are available for extra rugged protection.
PCM-3355 is a highly integrated platform for a wide variety of industrial applications and is available now (including the standard and wide temperature versions). Contact your local sales for more information.
