3.5" Pentium M SBC with New Interface; Advantech PCM-9380: New Fanless 3.5 Inch SBC with Pentium® M Processor and MIO Interface

(Irvine, CA, July 29, 2005) -- Advantech Corporation, delivering embedded solutions to the connected world, announced its latest powerful new 3.5" embedded SBC with Intel® Pentium® M/Celeron® M processor - PCM-9380. This Single Board Computer is designed with the Intel® 855GME chipset, and delivers efficient power consumption with excellent heat dissipation. This cooling feature is ideal for applications requiring low-power consumption or fan-less operation. PCM-9380 with new Module I/O (MIO) interface answers the need for a powerful and flexible 3.5" SBC requiring fewer cables, high resistance to vibration, and plenty of expansion possibilities.

High-end Powerful Intel Pentium® M/Celeron® M Solutions
PCM-9380 is based on the powerful 2GHz low power Intel® Pentium® M processor and uses Intel's 855GME and IC4H chipset. This chipset is specifically designed for embedded computing and delivers 400 MHz Front Side Bus speed and an optimized integrated graphics solution with a 32-bit 3D core. PCM-9380 supports DDR memory up to 1GB with ECC for improved reliability and data integrity. Other onboard features include VGA/LCD/LVDS connectors for dual independent displays and 1000Base-T Ethernet for Gigabit networking.

The Most Flexible Interface in the Embedded Application Market
Advantech designed the open-pin definition MIO to be simple and versatile. It integrates the most popular bus signals together into a high-density 160-pin connector. These signal bus include PCI, High-Speed USB 2.0, Digital Video Output (DVO), Low Pin Count (LPC), and AC97 audio, and because the MIO connector interfaces directly with other modules it means there are fewer cables, allowing better thermal heat dissipation. A variety of embedded add-on modules are available to further expand the possibilities of PCM-9380, such as MIO-253 with 4 serial port support, MIO-254 with TV-out/S-Video, and DVI interfaces, and MIO-250 with 3 fast Ethernet ports for Industrial Automation, Kiosk/Retail, and Networking applications.

PCM-9380 is an Intel® Pentium® M/Celeron® M 3.5" embedded SBC solution that is designed with Intel's 855GME chipset and Advantech's new Module I/O (MIO) interface that integrates the most popular bus signals together into a high-density 160-pin connector offering plenty of expansion possibilities.
