American Predator Unveils Phoenix AT Industrial Controller

4/23/2004 - American Predator Corporation (APC) announced the specifications of the Phoenix ATTM Industrial Controller. This new design is based on the Baby-AT form factor (8.6"x13"), the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with Hyper-Threading Technology, the Intel® 875P chipset and Intel® ICH-4 I/O Controller Hub.

The Phoenix AT introduces cutting edge features to the standard Baby-AT form factor such as blazing fast 800/533/400MHz Front Side Bus, Serial ATA (optional), USB2.0, Dual ethernet (gigabit ethernet options), and AGP Pro 8x/4x. Standard features include: four DIMM sockets that support 4GB of dual DDR 266/333/400, three PCI slots, two ISA slots, three RS232C serial (one configurable to RS422/485), AC'97 sound, POST display diagnostics, and Watchdog timer.

The Phoenix AT continues American Predator's commitment to providing simple, long-term, upgrade solutions. This new design has the muscle to handle processor intensive applications such as Industrial Automation, Graphics/Imaging, and Medical Devices without forcing customers to abandon existing legacy devices. Our Phoenix AT features the same fit, form, and function as our Raptor AT design with the Intel® Pentium® III processor and Predator747 design with the Intel486TM processor. This offers customers a straightforward, hassle-free upgrade, and an extended, five to eight year product life cycle.

"American Predator's Phoenix line opens the horizons to a full family of Intel̉ Pentium® 4 processor based form factors, providing our exclusive clients with not only the latest microprocessor technologies, but the ability to have a one-stop shop for all PC-based embedded controllers," said Ed Trevis, President and CEO of American Predator.

This dedication to excellence is what sets American Predator apart from our competition. The current state of the industrial market requires our customers to group with reliable suppliers to meet timely production obligations.
