Original Press Release:
Zendex ZXE-UFE/104P Multi-I/O PC/104+ Board Delivers the Best Value for Multiple I/O Port Needs
Dublin, California, June 1, 2003 --- Zendex Corporation has introduced a PC/104+ board that includes seven high speed I/O ports for applications that require multiple and varied peripherals. The ZXE-UFE/104P card provides four high speed USB2.0, two IEEE 1394 Firewire and one 10/100 Fast Ethernet ports. Data transfer rates range up to 480Mbit/sec. The board plugs into any standard PC/104+ CPU card and seamlessly interfaces with the standard PCI bus with "Plug and Play" simplicity.
The ZXE-UFE/104P features four of the new 480 Mbit/sec USB 2.0 ports. Unlike the slower 12 Mbit/sec USB 1.1, the USB 2.0 port rivals the speed of the 400 Mbit/sec Firewire port.
This multi-I/O card is useful in applications that have numerous optional peripheral devices, and for OEM systems that will be field-upgraded with peripherals. Typical applications include industrial controls, security systems, electronic kiosks, medical instruments and systems that require fast peripheral add-ons.
"Rather than buying separate cards for each desired port, we have given OEMs one PC/104 card that can address all their high speed I/O needs" declared Howard Czapla, CEO of Zendex. "The UFE board gives OEMs a huge amount of flexibility to add many different peripherals at final assembly, or even add-ons in the field."
The ZXE-UFE/104P is supported by Linux and MS Windows variants. In addition, the 2.5 watt power consumption makes this board useful for low power or battery-powered applications.
The ZXE-UFE/104P is priced at $295 in unit quantities, and the product is available off-the-shelf. Custom inquiries are encouraged.
