EBX Pentium III SBC with CPU, Audio, VGA/LCD, TV-out and Ethernet

PCM-9572F Introduction

Advantech's new PCM-9572F is an EBX form factor 5.25" single board computer (SBC) with an onboard Intel low power Pentium III 500 MHz or Celeron 400 MHz processor. This board can operate without a fan at temperatures up to 60 C (140 F) and typically consumes under 16 Watts while supporting numerous peripherals. This SBC includes a VGA/LCD controller, a PCI audio interface, a PCI Ethernet interface, and 8 digital inputs and outputs. Its design is based on the EBX form factor that supports the PC/104-Plus interface for ISA/PCI module upgrades. Other on-board features include 2 LPT, 2 USB, Fast IrDA and 4 serial ports: 3 RS-232 and 1 RS-232/422/485. The SSD solution supports both DiskOnChip 2000 and CompactFlash™ card. This board is great for POS applications by providing a COM port with +5 V/+12 V jumper select and a digital I/O for a cash drawer with isolated digital output. The board is also effective for use as a mini-server or gateway device, through its ability to add more ethernet ports through its fast PC/104-plus socket. This board combines well with the dual-ethernet PCM-3663 PC/104-plus module, giving integrators network flexibilty. The PCM-9572F's powerful, fanless processor choices and solid system chipset make it a perfect core technology for medical equipment and other long life applications. And with its high quality TV-out capability, numerous applications also become available .

SBC with EBX Form Factor, PC/104-Plus and Pentium III Processor
With this board and its EBX form factor and PC/104-Plus interface, system engineers can develop their own products or buy them off the shelf for this board. Up to two EIDE devices can be supported as well as two FDDs.

True multimedia SBC
The PCM-9572F supports 3D audio and complies with the AC97 standard and 3D engine VGA/LCD controller which support DVD play. The PCM-9572F combines audio, TV-out, and network functions on a single board computer the same size as the EBX form factor standard. It provides TV-out that supports composite video connectors and S-Video connectors via optional cable kit, and TV-out function which supports NSTC and PAL formats.
