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?.

CPU-1211 : The Industrial Gateway

Eurotech SpA is proud to announce a high integrated PC/104 CPU module based on a 386SX processor : the CPU-1211.

The CPU-1211, also called the Industrial Gateway, integrates the following features: 386SX-40Mhz, 4MB of DRAM, IDE interfaces, Parallel port, 10 Mbit Ethernet Controller, 2 CAN ports, 4 serial ports, keyboard port. Other functions on-board are: SSD socket with up-to 144 MB of solid state disk, watchdog, real-time clock and 16 digital I/O lines.

The board is PC/104 compliant and can be expanded easily with other PC/104 modules. Thanks to its high-integration the board can be used as an SBC in embedded applications.

The CPU-1211 supports many operating systems available for the standard PC platforms such as DOS, ROM_DOS, Windows 3.11, OS/2, Linux as well a real-time operating systems like QNX , pSOS, PHARLAP, VxWork and RT_Linux.

The combination in one module of Ethernet, CAN and Serials, makes the CPU-1211 an ideal choice for intelligent I/O, communication devices, routers & gateways and any other application requiring communication capabilities and PC compatibility in a small and rugged form factor.
