ICP Electronics Australia will be exhibiting its Nano series of single board computers (SBCs) at National Manufacturing Week 2005. The SBCs use the embedded platform for industrial computing (EPIC) form factor. They has been designed for applications requiring all-in-one functions with limited chassis space.
EPIC is the new open standard form factor for embedded computer boards. The design is larger than a PC/104 module and smaller than an EBX form factor. These embedded SBCs use the latest low power solutions from , the Intel ultra low voltage (ULV) Celeron 400MHz, Socket 479 Pentium M and onboard ULV Celeron M 600MHz CPUs. These processors allow the SBCs to provide value for thermally sensitive and space-constrained embedded computing applications by combining the optimal balance of cost, performance and low power.
The Nano series has four to six USB 2.0 connectors, one PC/104 expansion connector and an onboard 10/100Mbps Ethernet controller (Gigabit Ethernet optional). It supports one SODIMM socket and one CompactFlash socket. They also support one IDE, one parallel, one PS/2 keyboard/mouse, three RS-232, one RS-232/42/485 and one IrDA port. Onboard VGA is integrated into the Chipset (Intel 852gME + ICH4 or VIA VT8606 + VT82C686B).
The Nano Series is equipped with complex I/O functions suitable for applications such as data acquisition, video processing, telecommunications, networking and motion control. For more information on the NANO Series visit ICP Electronics Australia on Stand 5319 at National Manufacturing Week 2005.
