A PC/104 Single Board Using DMP’s Vortex86-DX2 Single Chip Solution with Full ISA Support Saving Power/Space/Cost
ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading provider of embedded products, released its newest PC/104 form factor single board computer offering, the CM1-86DX2, featuring an extensive I/O feature set and full ISA bus support. The CM1-86DX2 is ideal for control applications that require power efficiency, small form factor, longevity and industrial grade ruggedness.
Based on DMP’s Vortex86-DX2 single chip solution which integrates a powerful yet efficient CPU with graphics controller, audio controller and many other functionalities, the CM1-86DX2 provides all the standard peripheral connections of an embedded PC on a printed circuit board with dimensions of 96mm x 90 mm (3.775” x 3.550”).
The CM1-86DX2's rich I/O includes 2 Ethernet ports, 4 serial ports, 3 USB ports, 8 A/D inputs, 8 GPIOs and PS/2 connectors for keyboard and mouse. A SATA 1.5 Gb/s interface is also provided to allow for connection with disk or optical drive.
Taking full advantages of ADLINK’s market-proven “Rugged by Design” methodology, The CM1-86DX2 is able to withstand 11.95 Grms vibration and 40G shock (MIL-STD-202G Method 214A/213B) and operate over an extreme temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. The CM1-86DX2 is targeted at mission-critical applications in transportation, automated manufacturing, and aviation.
The ADLINK CM1-86DX2 also supports Smart Embedded Management Agent (SEMA) functions, including watchdog timer, temperature monitoring and fail-safe BIOS support, further insuring the system’s operational reliability.
