SALT LAKE CITY, 26 Aug. 2005. Corp. is offering the OrbiTrak GSM modular PC/104 computer board for intelligent vehicle and airborne computing systems requiring worldwide GSM/GPRS roaming combined with precise GPS positioning.

The OrbiTrak GSM combines wireless tri-band GSM/GPRS connectivity with a low-power 12-channel parallel-tracking GPS receiver in one embedded module. The 3.5-by-3.8-inch module is built to resist high mechanical stress, thermal shock, and extended temperature operation.

The product also features a 4-channel 16C550 UART with two RS-232 serial ports free for other devices. Board configuration is done using FlexiSet EEPROM board settings, which eliminates banks of interrupts and base address jumpers.

A 16-bit wide programmable digital I/O is provided to interface with other low-power digital devices, along with two automotive level digital inputs to connect to any 12- or 24-volt digital signals.

Other features include Siemens 900/1800/1900MHz MC45 GSM/GPRS modem with onboard or external SIM card interface; Fastrax iTrax02 12-channel low power iTrax02 GPS receiver NMEA and Binary GPS protocols, supports +3.3V/+5V antennas; 16 programmable digital I/O; four 16C550 compatible RS-232 serial ports (2 are reserved for GPS and modem)
- Audio: Audio I/O port for headset; and jumperless FlexiSet BASE address and IRQ, EEPROM stored setup; Board configuration in BASE+400h
