EBX Pentium Processor-based SBC with CPU, Video-in/TV-out, Audio, VGA/LCD, and Ethernet

PCM-9550FM Introduction

Advantech's new PCM-9550F/9550FM operates without a fan at low power, typically 3 amperes at 5 volts, supports numerous peripherals, and is an excellent core technology for medical equipment and POS systems, with a long product life cycle. It is a EBX Biscuit PC single board computer (SBC) with an onboard Intel low power Pentium processor with MMXTM technology 266 MHz, video input/output (PCM-9550FM), 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 upgrade. Other on-board features include a 512KB 2nd level cache, 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 CFC.

PCM-9550 also provides some features for POS applications; two to note, COM port with +5 V/ +12 V select by jumpers and digital I/O for a cash drawer with isolated digital output.

SBC with EBX Form Factor, PC/104-Plus and Pentium Processor Available Now Windows2000 (LED chip 69030 only)
With this board and its EBX form factor and PC/104-Plus interface, system engineers can develop their own products or buy them off for the shelf for this board. Up to four EIDE devices can be supported as well as two FDDs.
