SBS Technologies, represented in Australia by Metromatics Pty Ltd , has launched its new PSL09 Processor PCI Mezzanine card (PrPMC).
The PSL09 PrPMC is a high performance processor module powered by the Intel Pentium M processor low voltage at 1.4GHz.
For very low power application requirements the PSL09 is also available with an Intel Celeron M processor ultra low voltage.
The PSL09 PrPMC is ideal for new or upgraded embedded applications that need a Windows XP graphical user interface like I/O management, data management or packet processing applications.
This PrPMC supports a 33/66MHz PCI bus and incorporates sophisticated power management technology, a VGA interface and 256Mb of 333MHz DDR SDRAM with optional ECC.
The PSL09 provides embedded application designers extensive connectivity with four USB 2.0 ports, two serial ATA channels and two Fast Ethernet ports.
The PSL09 supports Monarch and non-Monarch modes for increased flexibility. In Monarch mode, the PSL09 acts as the host on the PCI bus, controlling the carrier board to which it is attached. If the embedded application needs a processor module with higher performance it can be easily changed without a redesign of the carrier board itself.
In non-Monarch mode, the PSL09 acts as a slave processor module creating, with the host processor on the carrier board, a loosely coupled multi-processing capability adding additional computing power for demanding applications.
Upon request, the PSL09 features-as an option a PICMG 2.15 compatibility with the added option of one or two Fast Ethernet links through the Pn4/Jn4 connector.
This PICMG 2.15 option enables the PSL09 to operate with CompactPCI 2.16 and AdvancedTCA carrier boards offering embedded application developers a wide range of alternatives.
Available in a standard temperature range of 0°C to +50°C, this board is also available in an extended temperature version ranging from -40° to +55°C for demanding applications in low temperature conditions.
The PSL09 supports the Linux, VxWorks and Windows XP operating systems.
