BACKPLANE Systems Technology has released IBASE's latest Pentium 4, 5.25" embedded board, the IB830. This board incorporates the Intel advanced 845G chipset memory controller hub and supports 478-pin Intel Pentium 4 processors up to 3.06GHz+ with FSB 533MHz/400MHz.
The I/O functions are on IB830 integrated onto the ICH4. It supports the integrated graphics device (IGD) on the GMCH with 3D, 2D, and video capabilities.
The system memory supports up to 2GB via the two DDR sockets on board. The four USB ports accept both USB 1.1 and 2.0 standards.
The IB830 features TV-out and LVDS with the use of the Chrontel CH7017 display controller device which accepts two digital graphics input data streams.
One data stream outputs through an LVDS transmitter to an LCD panel, while the other data stream is encoded for NTSC or PAL TV and outputs through a 10-bit high speed DAC.
The TV encoder device encodes a graphics signal up to 1024x768 resolution and outputs the video signals according to NTSC or PAL standards.
The LVDS transmitter operates at pixel speeds up to 165MHz per link, supporting 1600 x 1200 panels at 60Hz refresh rate.
The IB830 is equipped with Ethernet functionality, the primary LAN is integrated on ICH4's LAN controller. An optional second LAN is available.
The board also supports AC97 audio, 4 COM ports, UDMA 100, 4 USB ports, watchdog timer and a PCI slot for expandability.
This embedded board is suitable for applications requiring superior performance, such as POS, kiosk, ATM, medical or other embedded appliances.
