Original Press Release:



Avalue Technology Introduces the 3.5" and EPIC Small Form-Factor SBC for your Low Power Consumption Demands.



Avalue Technology is today proud to introduce you to the ECM-LX800 and the EPI-LX800, two versatile models with low power consumption, high performance, small size, and reliability. Powered by AMD Geode LX800 processors, these models demonstrate that you don't have to sacrifice performance to achieve low power consumption in small form-factors anymore. Also benefiting from low power consumption, these two models won't be troubled by thermal problems and can be used in high temperature environments. Due to these outstanding features, the ECM-LX800 and the EPI-LX800 are suitable for small size, limited space and temperature-demanding applications, such as thin client and portal computing devices.

Fanless Operation
The AMD Geode LX800@0.9W processor operates at a maximum power of 3.6W and 1.8W is typical at 500MHz. Therefore, these products can work smoothly with passive cooling or even without a heat sink for a more flexible design.

Performance & Energy Efficiency
Equipped with AMD Geode LX800 low power processors, AMD-based solutions provide an answer to your demands for high reliability, great performance and energy efficiency. Due to the innovative energy-efficiency function, Avalue can provide you with small form-factor designs like the ECM-LX800 (3.5") and the EPI-LX800 (EPIC).

Rich Features
With elaborative and unique design, the ECM-LX800 and the EPI-LX800 provide numerous features including DDR SODIMM memory, COM ports, EIDE, dual LAN, CF socket and 4 USB 2.0 ports. For display options, VGA, LVDS (support 18-bit or 24-bit) or TTL LCD is available. Moreover, the ECM-LX800 provides 2 SATA connectors for an outstanding data-transmitting rate. Additionally, the EPI-LX800 can offer you convenient external connectors, such as audio and 4 USB 2.0 ports.

Legacy Support
Accompanied by PC/104 connector, TTL LCD, and 4 COM ports, the ECM-LX800 is undeniably the best solution for legacy support. With these integrated features, it is an excellent choice to replace your existing models because it can easily be upgraded and flexibly extended to meet any specific requirements.
