Parvus' SpacePC PC/104 SBC Supports Network Booting over Ethernet

6/4/2004 - Parvus® Corp. announced the availability of a free network booting utility for users of its SpacePC® PC/104 form-factor single board computers (SBCs). This software tool enables customers to reduce the total cost of ownership and simplify management of their embedded network devices by accessing and booting from boot image files on a server.

This network booting software has been tested with all of Parvus’ SpacePC CPU boards that offer LAN controllers, including Pentium®, 586, 486 and 386 models (SpacePC 4320, 4200, 2320, 2200, and 2110). It is specifically designed for systems running Linux® and can be loaded on a solid-state device, such as DiskOnChip®, DiskOnModule® or into the CPU boards’ onboard EEPROM.

Parvus’ embedded computers are typically used by customers with aerospace, defense, medical, industrial and transportation applications. The SpacePC processor line is characterized by its space-saving size (3.550” x 3.775”), fanless operation (passive cooling), soldered RAM memory (for ruggedness), broad support for x86 operating systems (i.e. Windows®, Linux®, VxWorks®, QNX®), low-power consumption (4-5 watts typical), and available extended temperature operation (–40ºC to +85ºC).

Parvus Corporation is a leading North American manufacturer and systems integrator of modular computer boards, enclosures, displays and embedded systems based on the PC/104 computer standard. Parvus offers rugged, Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) computing solutions ideal for avionics, military, medical, industrial, and transportation OEMs. For more information, visit or call 801.483.1533.
