Supporting a range of Intel Atom processors from the power efficient N450 running at 1.66 GHz to the performance oriented dual-core D510, a new PC/104-Plus module takes advantage of Atom’s two-chip solution architecture with integrated memory and graphics controllers to balance excellent performance with very low power requirements. With a TDP as low as 9W, the CoreModule 745 from Adlink simplifies cooling requirements and enables conduction-cooled solutions for small sealed enclosures in space-constrained applications.

Rugged by design, the CoreModule 745 supports a wealth of legacy I/O interfaces including ISA and PCI buses. Serial ports, one GbE port and up to 2 Gbyte of DDR2 667 MHz RAM are also incorporated into an expanded PC/104 footprint. This stackable PC/104-Plus SBC allows OEMs in military, avionics, transportation and other rugged markets to add a state-of-the-art Intel Architecture controller to their systems without the need for a custom carrier board. The CoreModule 745 also provides a simple upgrade path for the broad base of existing PC/104 system designs.

Adlink’s Extreme Rugged design methodology enables operation at temperatures from -40° to +85°C, vibration up to 11.95 Grms, and shock up to 50Grms. The CoreModule 745 also features a full 16-bit ISA bus, PCI 32-bit bus, one GbE port, two RS-232 serial ports, one RS-232/422/485 port, four USB 2.0 ports and eight GPIO. In addition, it offers graphics performance with an LVDS panel interface and legacy CRT support. For harsh environments, optional conformal coating is offered. The CoreModule 745 is available with QuickStart Kits including cables, 2 Gbyte DDR2 RAM, device drivers and board support packages (BSPs) for many popular operating systems including VxWorks, Windows CE, Windows XP Embedded, Linux and QNX.
