A new PC/104 form factor single board computer (SBC) features an extensive I/O feature set and full ISA bus support. The CoreModule1-86DX2 from Adlink Technology is aimed at control applications that require power efficiency, small form

factor design, longevity and industrial grade ruggedness.

The CoreModule1-86DX2 enables a performance boost for legacy PC/104 systems that continue to utilize real ISA bus and supports applications across markets, including transportation, automated manufacturing and aviation. Based on DMP’s Vortex86-DX2 single chip solution, which integrates a powerful yet efficient CPU with graphics controller, audio controller and other functionalities, the CoreModule1-86DX2 provides all of the standard peripheral connections of an embedded PC on a printed circuit board with dimensions of 96 mm x 90 mm (3.775” x 3.550”).

The CoreModule1-86DX2’s rich I/O includes 2 Ethernet ports, 4 serial ports, 3 USB ports, 8 A/D inputs, 8 GPIOs and PS/2 connectors for keyboard and mouse. A SATA 1.5 Gbit/s interface is also provided to allow for connection with a disk or optical drive. The CoreModule1-86DX2 is also able to withstand 11.95 Grms vibration and 40G shock (MIL-STD-202G Method 214A/213B) and operate over an extreme temperature range of -40° to +85°C. The ADLINK CoreModule1-86DX2 also supports Smart Embedded Management Agent (SEMA) functions, including watchdog timer, temperature monitoring and fail-safe BIOS support, further ensuring the system’s operational reliability.

The CoreModule1-86DX2 runs DOS, Windows XP/7 and Linux operating systems and is powered by a 5V-only supply. System expansion can easily be realized over the PC/104, Mini-PCI Express and I²C bus connectors.
