Kontron MOPS-PM PC/104-Plus SBC

The MOPS-PM PC/104-Plus card, by Kontron, is the industry’s first fully PC/104-Plus compliant single-board computer equipped with Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processors. While other PC/104-Plus designs with Intel Pentium M processors have violated the traditional physical form factor, the Kontron MOPS-PM meets the PC/104 Consortium specifications entirely. PC/104 is one of the world’s smallest form factor standards for SBCs and I/O accessory boards and therefore has the widest usage in applications where space is the limiting factor. Target markets include: automation, medical, defense, transportation, point of purchase/information and gaming.

The new Kontron MOPS-PM for PC/104-compliant expansion modules is equipped with Intel(R) Pentium(R) M class processors and 855/852 GME/ICH4 chipset. Standard variants are:

  • 1.4 GHz Intel(R) Pentium(R) M 738 2MB L2 cache
  • 1 GHz Intel(R) Celeron(R) M 373 512KB L2 cache
  • 600 MHz Intel(R) Mobile Celeron processor 512KB L2 cache

In terms of cost, the 600 MHz version fits into or under the price level of the VIA Eden, thanks to Intel’s progressive pricing policy. The Kontron MOPS-PM has PCI and ISA busses and all other standard interfaces (LAN, 2 x USB 2.0, 2 x COM ports, CRT, LPT, EIDE). In addition, the high speed on-chip video controller (Intel(R) Extreme Graphics 2 engine) with up to 64 MB of video memory (UMA) can drive dual independent displays at high resolutions. Use of the new JILI30 flatfoil connector allows connection of TFT panels at extremely low cost. Even connections to Transistor Logic panels are possible.
