BACKPLANE Systems Technology has released IBASE's first Pentium 4 industrial motherboard, the MB800.
This rugged board is based on the Intel 845G chipset and includes key features such as 533MHz FSB bus support, integrated LAN and graphics functions.
In addition, the 845G chipset provides Intel's new ICH4 south bridge chip that supports USB 2.0 with a peak transfer rate of up to 480Mbps.
The MB800 motherboard supports Pentium 4 processors up to 2.4GHz and includes onboard AGP 4x VGA, 10/100Mbps LAN and audio. An optional secondary LAN is available in a 10/100Mbps or Gigabit version.
The two DDR memory slots support up to 2GB of PC200/266 DDR SDRAM. Hardware monitoring is available via the Winbond W83627HF chipset onboard.
This ATX industrial motherboard includes a 256-level watchdog timer, DiskOnChip socket, digital I/O (4 in/4 out) and PCI to ISA bridge.
MB800 also features an AGP port, three PCI slots, three ISA slots and a MicroPCI socket supporting a range of expansions options.
The ISA slots are suitable for industrial applications with legacy boards that are required to be integrated into an up-grade system.
With ISA slots onboard, a fast processor and a long life cycle, the MB800 is suitable for a range of industrial applications, including automation control, networking and telecommunications.
