Eurotech has unveiled its CPU-1462, a RoHS-compliant, high-reliability single-board computer (SBC) based on the 800MHz Intel Pentium III processor with 256MB of SDRAM soldered onboard and versatile peripheral interfaces. The CPU-1462 is an upgrade and replacement to the widely proven CPU-1460 and CPU-1461 CPU modules.
The highly integrated CPU-1462 peripheral interfaces include four high-speed USB2.0 ports suitable for modern mass storage media, cameras or other high-performance expansion devices, plus four USB1.1 ports that can be used for standard I/O devices such as keyboards, mice or serial expansion. Included on this CPU module is a 10/100Mbit Ethernet port, two serial ports, one parallel port, an AC97 audio interface, high-resolution CRT monitor and LVDS display ports, as well as a keyboard and mouse port.
IDE mass storage devices, (such as a Disk-on-Module, Compact Flash card or HDD) can be connected to the onboard high-speed EIDE controller. Also included are a real-time clock, hardware watchdog timer and an internal flash memory for system set-up storage.
The innovative construction of this CPU module makes structural heat dissipation into the enclosure easy to implement, thereby expanding the range of potential applications. Efficient heat conduction from components and an optimised low-power design result in a wide standard operating temperature range of 0 to +50degC or an extended range of -40 to +85degC.
Full compatibility with the x86 hardware architecture guarantees compatibility with standard operating systems such as WinCE, WinXPE and Linux. A CPU development system is available to speed up OS and application software development and integration as well as hardware testing.
Typical applications for the CPU-1462 include mobile real-time computation-intensive video and multimedia processing, high-speed industrial data acquisition and control, as well as networking and communication systems. The CPU-1462 is a reliable CPU module that is well suited to vehicle installations requiring resistance to temperature extremes, shock and vibration.
