ICP Electronics Australia has released their range of the new EPIC embedded form factor, the NANO Series.
This series has been designed for high performance applications requiring all-in-one functions and with limited chassis space.
Embedded Platform for Industrial Computing or EPIC is the new open standard form factor for embedded computer boards.
Larger than a PC/104 Module and smaller than an EBX form factor, this new design is compact yet offers greater functionality.
These embedded SBCs use the latest low power solutions from Intel, the ULV (Ultra Low Voltage) Celeron 400MHz, Socket 479 Pentium M and onboard ULV Celeron M 600MHz CPUs.
These processors allow the NANO Series to provide exceptional value for thermally sensitive and space constrained embedded computing applications by combining the optimal balance of cost, performance and low power.
The NANO Series features four-to-six USB 2.0 connectors, one PC/104 expansion connector and an onboard 10/100Mbps Ethernet controller (Gigabit Ethernet optional).
This series supports one SODIMM socket and one CompactFlash socket. In addition, these embedded boards support one IDE, one parallel, one PS/2 keyboard/mouse, three RS-232s, 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.
