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.
