Socket 370 CeleronTM

PCM-9570 Introduction

The PCM-9570/S is an all-in-one CeleronTM / Pentium III processor level single board computer (SBC) with an Ultra2 SCSI controller (PCM-9570S), a 2x AGP LCD controller, a PCI Fast Ethernet interface and one PCI expansion slot. With the Intel CeleronTM processor, the PCM-9570/S achieves outstanding performance that surpasses any other SBC in its class. This compact (only 5.75" x 8") unit offers all the functions of a single board industrial computer, but still fits in the space of a 5.25" floppy drive.

On-board features include four serial ports (three RS-232, one RS-232/422/485), one multi-mode parallel (ECP/EPP/SPP) port, two USB (Universal Serial Bus) ports, one infrared port (FIR), one CompactFlash socket for CFC, a floppy drive controller and a keyboard/PS/2 mouse interface. The built-in high speed PCI IDE controller supports PIO, UDMA/33 and bus master modes. Up to two IDE devices can be connected, including large hard disks, CD-ROM drives and tape backup drives.

The PCM-9570/S features power management to minimize power consumption. It complies with the "Green Function" standard and supports doze mode, standby mode and suspend mode. In addition, the boards watchdog timer can automatically reset the system or generate an interrupt in case the system stops due to a program bug or EMI.

Highly Integrated Socket 370 SBC
The PCM-9570/S is a highly integrated SBC that combines Ultra2 SCSI, PanelLink, and network functions on a single computer board the size of a 5.25" floppy drive. Major on-board devices adopt PCI technology to achieve outstanding computing performance when used with Intel Socket 370 processors, making the PCM-9570/S the world's smallest and most powerful all-in-one Socket 370 board.
