VersaLogic Announces Fanless Ultra-Low Voltage Celeron M PC/104-Plus Single Board Computer

01 October 2008

VersaLogic Corp. announced today the release of a fanless version of its Cheetah PC/104-Plus embedded single board computer (SBC).

The new Cheetah version (EPM-32v) boasts the processing power of Intels® Ultra-Low Voltage Celeron® M CPU, but operates without a fan and uses only eight watts of power.

The new ULV Cheetah is targeted at applications such as medical, avionics, navigation/tracking, system monitoring, and security/homeland defense that require substantial processing power and low power draw, as well as extensive features in a rugged, compact design. The Cheetah is especially well suited for embedded control applications requiring a very small footprint, which the 3.6" x 3.8" (90mm x 96mm) size provides.

Standard on-board features of this RoHS-compliant SBC include 2 COM ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, IDE, LPT, audio, and PS/2 keyboard/mouse support. The board also features integrated high-performance video with support for both analogue monitors and LVDS flat panels. The Extreme Graphics 2 video processor includes high speed 3-D rendering, full-motion video, and MPEG-2 decoding. The PC/104-Plus interface supports both ISA and PCI add-on modules. Standard pass-through connectors allow the board to be used above other PC/104 modules. It may also be used as a CPU module for larger systems, by plugging it into a proprietary base board that includes specific user I/O circuitry. As with other VersaLogic embedded computer boards, the fanless Cheetah includes a customizable, OEM-enhanced BIOS that is field-upgradeable. It is designed to work with embedded operating systems, including Windows CE/XP/XPe, Linux, VxWorks, QNX, DOS, and others.
