New PC/104 Form Factor SBC for Demanding Communications and Control Applications

2/28/2002 - Arcom today announced the launch of a new PC/104 form factor embedded processor board powered by the 133MHz AMD SC520 PC-compatible controller. The PEGASUS PC/104 board uses the General Software Embedded BIOS and has been designed for demanding embedded communications applications based on Windows CE .NET, Embedded Linux and DOS. The board can be fitted with up to 64Mbytes of soldered SDRAM, 16Mbytes of resident Flash and 128Kbytes of battery backed static RAM. For deeply embedded applications, low power fan-less operation and all-soldered memory improve reliability and minimize the need for field maintenance. The AMD SC520 (Am5x86) uses the local PCI bus to drive the high performance 10/100baseTx National Semiconductor MacPhyter Ethernet controller. The board also includes four 16C550 serial ports (RS-232, RS-422/485 and TTL), IDE, keyboard and printer port as well as a watchdog time for system monitoring. The use of standard connectors for the communication ports and Ethernet simplifies the integration into your OEM system solution. PEGASUS operates from a single +5v supply and typically requires 4.5W at 133MHz.
