CPU-1450-00. A reliable Celeron PC/104-Plus Embedded Module for ruggedized systems

Eurotech is pleased to present a new module that is a low voltage Celeron based module, in a PC/104-Plus form factor: the CPU-1450-00.

The CPU-1450-00 has been designed to operate reliably in harsh environments. For this reason it is suitable for automotive (AVL/AVM), Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) applications and for security and surveillance (DVR) systems.

The CPU-1450-00 is an embedded board based on two modules: a mezzanine CPU module, stacked on top of a PC/104-Plus form factor carrier.
The CPU mezzanine of the CPU-1450-00 module is a small board that features the CPU processor and its Intel? 815E chipset with 133MHz maximum bus frequency. The processor is an ULV BGA Celeron 400MHz that has a low power consumption and is suitable for embedded applications. The system RAM is 256MB as standard. The processor doesn’t require any active cooling.
The carrier implements all the connections to the external world, including 4 USB ports, 1 Fast Ethernet interface (10/100Mbps), 2 Serial ports, 1 Parallel port, 1 Floppy port, 1 VGA interface, 1 AC97 audio sound interface, Keyboard, Mouse and an IDE controller that supports any type of IDE Flash devices (DiskonModule?, CompactFlash? and Flash Disk). The carrier also performs the connections for the ISA and PCI bridge enabling the CPU-1450-00 to stack on top of a PC/104-Plus system. The carrier can provide support for Watchdog management and Real Time Clock (external backup battery) and can be customized to match specific customer needs.

The module’s embedded BIOS is located in a 1MB Flash EPROM and is re-programmable onboard. The set-up parameters are saved in Flash to allow the module to operate without a battery.

The CPU-1450-00 supports any operating systems available for standard PC platforms: Win95/98/XP/NT/2000/CE?, VxWorks?, Linux?, ROM-DOS, QNX?.
