MILPITAS, Calif., 9 Feb. 2010. Advantech America in Milpitas, Calif., is introducing the Intel Atom-based PCM-3362 industrial grade PC/104-plusCPU board for outdoor integration in military, transportation, and space-saving embedded applications.
The PCM-3362 single-board computer features a low-power design, as many as four USB 2.0, and three COM ports integrated into a standard 96-by-90-millimeter form factor. The embedded computer supports dual display for LVDS, and CRT. The single-board computer operates in temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius and resists the effects of vibration, company officials say.
The computer board's use of the Intel Atom processor produces a thermal design power (TDP) rating of less than 5.5 Watts for space-efficient solutions with power saving features.
The graphics and memory controller hub runs at 1.66 GHz, and is on the same chip as the CPU. The rugged vibration-resistant board has a PC/104-plus connector, on-board 2 gigabytes of flash, two RS-232 serial ports, one RS-422/485 serial port, four USB ports, one SATA interface, I2C connector, and 8-bit GPIO.
A 10/100/1000-megabit-per-second Ethernet port is also available for high speed networking. The Intel Gen 3.5 integrated graphic core uses as much as 224 megabytes of shared memory. VGA and LVDS dual video outputs are included.
