Original Press Release:
Zendex ZXE-ST586/104P PC/104 and PC/104+ Single Board Computer Replaces ZF Micro ZFx86-Based PC/104 Products
Dublin, California, November 4, 2002 --- Zendex Corporation, a 20-year veteran of the embedded control systems industry, introduces the ZXE-ST586/104P Single Board Computer (SBC) in PC/104 and PC/104+ formats. The ST586/104P is a richly-featured,
complete computer system which includes on-board memory and is capable of "booting-from-the-box" without the need for additional hardware or software.
This new entry into the product lineup provides a replacement for ZF Micro ZFx86 CPU-based PC/104 and PC/104+ boards. The ZF Micro device is becoming increasingly difficult to find and expensive to purchase.
The ZXE-ST586/104P features the ST Micro "Atlas" CPU which is functionally very similar to the ZF microcontroller. It includes 4MB of flash memory, incorporates 256K BIOS, and up to 3.75 MB of a compressed file system which is used to boot the SBC right out of the box. The ST586/104P comes standard with Linux already installed. The SBC also runs DOS and Windows operating systems. In addition, the SBC includes 64MB of SDRAM, which can be expanded to 128MB for applications with large memory requirements. The SBC includes video outputs for both LCD and CRT displays and 4MB of video memory.
All standard components are soldered on, allowing the device to withstand the shock and vibration found in rugged environments. It is also ideal for space-limited applications and challenging commercial or industrial environments because of its nearly unrestricted memory and I/O capabilities.
