Available from Dominion Electronics , it features 256MB RAM, AC97 sound, and four USB 2.0 host ports, one of which can be configured as a device, too.
The processor is combined with the CS5536 I/O companion chip, which integrates many of the standard PC peripherals. The Cool LiteRunner 2 forms a complete PC that can be expanded using the PC/104 connector or the built-in miniPCI slot.
Two independent Fast Ethernet controllers are on-board, making the Cool LiteRunner a selection of choice for applications like managed bridges and industrial automation.
The Cool LiteRunner 2 comes with an integrated graphics controller that shares its graphics memory with the system memory (UMA) . It handles both, VGA monitors or digital TFT displays (18-bit parallel or 24-bit LVDS), selectable via jumper or BIOS settings.
Other features include:
* Floppy disk adapter, PS/2 keyboard and mouse, parallel printer and three serial ports are integrated on-board, too. Two of the serial ports can be configured by software for the RS232 or RS485 standards; the third is RS485 only.
