WinSystems announced their PXM-C388-S, a PC/104-compatible single board computer (SBC) powered by an Intel 1.66-GHz Atom processor. This new SBC adds the SUMIT (Stackable Unified Modular Interconnect Technology) I/O expansion connector onto a PC/104 expandable SBC. This combination gives designers I/O expansion for standard and custom PC/104 modules currently available, plus enhanced performance and throughput of stackable PCI Express (PCIe) and USB. The PXM-C388-S processors’ high performance enables designs that need multiple video input data streams and high speed A/D which opens up applications for security, automated inspection of production lines, data acquisition and machine-to-machine communications in a small, rugged, form factor.
The PXM-C388 I/O interface onboard features a Gigabit Ethernet port; simultaneous CRT and LVDS flat panel video support, eight USB 2.0 ports, four serial COM ports, SATA controller, PATA controller for the CompactFlash socket, twenty-four lines of digital I/O, and HD audio. It will operate from -40 to + 85°C. It requires only +5 V and typically draws 2.5 A and offers low-power modes. The SBC sells for $499.
