Eurotech SpA has released a new PC/104 CPU module based on a Pentium 233MMX-like processor that gives you the power for the next generation embedded appliances.
The CPU-1231 integrates in a single CPU-board many features such as: EIDE interfaces, SVGA with resolutions up to 1024×768, 2 serial ports (UART 16550), 2 USB ports, 10/100Mbit Ethernet Controller, keyboard port, bidirectional parallel port EPP-ECP, FDC, mouse. Other functions on-board are: SSD socket with up to 288 MB of Solid State Disk, watchdog, real-time clock. Moreover the CPU-1231 can be equipped with up to 128MB DRAM in order to satisfy highly demanding graphical applications.
With this module Eurotech has integrated a whole PC board and many other features in a single 3,6? x 3,8? (91 x 96 mm) module. This makes the CPU-1231 the right choice when high performance, high reliability and space-constrained environments are decisive factors.
The board is PC/104 compliant and can be expanded easily with other PC/104 modules, in order to improve the features of your PC/104 system such as: SCSI controllers, PCMCIA controllers, Data Acquisition, Digital I/O and so on. Thanks to its high-integration the board can be used as an SBC in embedded applications.
The CPU-1231 is fully Intel Pentium compatible: this is the reason why it supports any operating system available for the standard PC platform such as DOS, ROM_DOS, Windows 3.11, 95, 98, 2000 and NT, Linux as well as real-time operating systems like QNX , pSOS, PHARLAP, VxWork, WinCE and RT_Linux.
The CPU-1231 is an ideal choice for auto-navigation devices, medical devices, communication devices, routers & gateways, Internet appliances, and any other application requiring network capabilities and high performances in a small and rugged form factor.
