BACKPLANE Systems Technology will be exhibiting Digital-Logic's Microspace-PC40 (MPC40) at National Manufacturing Week Melbourne 2005. It is a small, quiet PC for industrial and professional applications. It is based on the Intel Pentium M 738 processor with a 1.4GHz, 2.045k L2 cache and 400MHz FSB. This is performance comparable to a 2.8GHz Intel Pentium 4 processor.
The power-saving function of the Pentium M processor provides a dynamic CPU-clock adaptation to the application. In the slowest modus the CPU works with 600MHz, so the whole system typically consumes 35W.
The MPC40 has a video memory of up to 64MB. The video controller has two different video outputs, allowing it to feed one VGA (CRT) monitor and one DVI monitor with the same or with different images. The PC's main memory is 512MB DDR RAM and can be expanded up to 1GB.
The MPC40 has five high-speed USB V2.0 ports, one serial interface, one parallel interface, two IEEE-1394, a LAN 100/10-Base-T port, three stereo sound outputs (six channels) and a SPDif digital sound output with six channels and one stereo input. A MiniPCI expansion is available.
A 2.5-inch, 20GB (max. 80GB) hard disk and a CD-RW/DVD-R drive are integrated into the PC. The hard disk features antivibration rubber cushioning. The MPC40 has a voltage of 10V to 30V, making it suitable for battery-powered systems. It is suitable for multimedia applications, security and surveillance systems, game panels, media servers, web server and image processing computer applications.
