Power-stingy processor module operates to 85°C without fan

19 November 2003 Electronics Technology

Ampro added a new model to its EnCore 700 family of embedded processors. The new ENC-700-Q-03 uses a 300 MHz intel low power Celeron CPU.

This processor operates with a core voltage of 1,1 V. A direct result of the low core voltage is exceptionally low power consumption/heat dissipation for this processor. Intel rates this processor, under the terminology of thermal design power (Max), at 5,7 W says Ampro. This compares favourably with a similar rating of 7,5 W for its well-known 266 MHz Pentium MMX (Tillamook) CPU. The EnCore 700 model has a substantial thermal management advantage over other embedded Celeron CPUs used in Socket 370 boards, none of which have the 'Low Power' designation claims Ampro.

The company offers QuickStart Kits which include the EnCore module, RAM, reference baseboard and EnCore Development Kit CD with software, reference schematics, layout files and documentation.
