PCI/104-Express SBC

28 September 2011 Computer/Embedded Technology

With a new PCI/104-Express single board computer (SBC), Kontron expands its PC/104 portfolio with an energy-efficient platform for demanding environmental conditions. Based on the single- and dual-core Intel Atom processors, the new MICROSPACE MSM-LP offers a wide range of interfaces and high-performance expansion options for applications. OEMs can benefit from simplified integration in I/O-intensive applications. Additionally, its performance makes it a valid substitute for previous Intel Pentium M designs.

The board is available with the single-core D425 processor or the dual-core D525 processor. A version for the extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C is also available. All versions offer hyper-threading for multiprocessing applications. With up to 4 GB DDR3 single-channel system memory, the MICROSPACE MSM-LP offers enough resources to speed up even memory-intensive applications. Two Gigabit Ethernet connections, executed via the highly compatible Intel 82547L and 82567 controllers, allow reliable vertical networking, even in complex factory or transportation networks, without additional expansion cards.

Four USB 2.0 and four serial interfaces (RS232/422/485) allow the direct connection of numerous application-specific peripheral devices. With one IDE and two SATA ports, the SBC enables the connection of up to three storage media devices. For especially space-saving and rugged applications, there is also an onboard SSD with up to 16 GB capacity. The board allows for the integration of two displays independently via VGA (2048 x 1536 @ 60 Hz) and LVDS. HD audio rounds out the feature set.

The MICROSPACE MSM-LP offers software support for Windows, Linux, VxWorks and others on request.
