ICP Electronics Australia has released WAFER-9371A 3.5” embedded SBC series. These boards feature onboard ULV Intel Celeron 400MHz or 650MHz CPUs, and are suited to applications requiring a compact SBC solution with ultra low power consumption and a fast processor.
The board features a VIA Twister chip that supports Dual Channel (2x18bit) LVDS LCD panel displays (VIA VT8606). A 32MB system shared V-RAM, coupled with a resolution of up to 1024 x 768 provides the board with good graphics capabilities.
The WAFER-9371A also features diskless booting. The BIOS Pre-Boot Execution Environment (PXE) feature supports Boot-on-LAN with ATX power supply, and allows a workstation to boot from a server on a network, prior to booting the operating system on the local hard drive.
The WAFER-9371A supports up to 512MB SDRAM in one 144-pin SO-DIMM socket. The WAFER-9371A SBC features an onboard 10/100Mbps Ethernet controller, two serial ports, two USB ports, keyboard/mouse and AC’97 audio. Expansion can be via the Compact Flash II socket or PC/104 slot.
The WAFER-9371A has been designed to be suitable for a range of embedded applications, including factory automation, gaming and kiosks.
