Parvus Showcases SpacePC at Military and Aerospace Electronics Show

12/1/2003 - Parvus® Corporation will be displaying its new SpacePC® 4320 embedded computer at the Military and Aerospace Electronics West 2003 show (Booth #606) from Dec 2-3 at the San Diego Concourse.

Based on the Pentium® MMX class AMD GeodeTM GX1 CPU, the 4320 Series is a low-power PC/104-Plus single board computer (SBC) ideal for space-constrained applications requiring the performance of the x86 Intel architecture, yet in a compact, fanless format - roughly the size of a floppy disk (3.550 x 3.775).

Running at clock speeds of 266MHz and equipped with 128MB of soldered SDRAM, the 4320 Series provides embedded systems designers in aviation, defense, transportation, and industrial applications with a tightly integrated computer, attractively priced at $372/per unit in volume orders of 100+ units. It is available in both standard (0C to +60C) and extended (-40C to +85C) temperature rated versions.

This space-saving PC/104-Plus module couples all of the standard interfaces of a desktop PC with support for both Windows® and Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS), such as Linux®, QNX® and VxWorks®. Integrated peripheral controllers include SVGA (resolution up to 1280x1024 pixels), two serial ports, one parallel port, one Fast Ethernet controller, one E-IDE interface, keyboard, mouse, USB port, and AC7 sound port. The BIOS is stored in a 1MB EPROM, which comes pre-loaded with a ROM-DOSTM kernel to facilitate rapid implementation.

While supplies last, a limited quantity of the SpacePC 4320 CPU will be available for free evaluation. Visit for more information about the whole line of SpacePC PC/104 and PC/104-Plus CPU modules or call 800-483-3152 to place an order.

Parvus will also be displaying various military computing devices and rugged avionics LCD displays, which were custom designed for the U.S. military for use in aircraft and ground vehicles. Most of these rugged systems are based on commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) enclosures and PC/104 computer boards developed by Parvus.
