NS Geode with Dual Ethernet, Audio, and VGA/LCD

PCM-5823 Introduction

Advantech's new PCM-5823 NS Geode Series is a 3.5" SBC which offers an onboard NS Geode GX1-300 processor or GXLV-200 processor, plus support for dual ethernet for network functions such as Firewall, Router or Gateway functions. Other onboard features include VGA/LCD, a CompactFlash™ card socket, and watchdog timer. With the 586-level NS Geode processor mounted directly on board, upgrade and system configuration is much more convenient as is the benefits of fanless operation in temperatures up to 60 C (140 F). This board is a feature-packed, 586-level, hassle-free solution for space critical applications.

Dual-Ethernet Flexibility
The flexible, dual Ethernet capability of the PCM-5823 gives network administrators another tool to deal with today's changing application needs. The board comes with the top-of-the-line Intel 82559E LAN chips or cost-effective RTL 8139C LAN chips, depending on users needs. Used as a DMZ device, the PCM-5823 could act as a firewall that sits between the internet and a company's internal network. This applies to Web (HTTP) servers, FTP servers, SMTP (e-mail) servers or DNS servers. The PCM-5823 can also be used as an internet-network gateway (router) that connects a number of local networks. Once again, the dual ethernet capability and processing power of the PCM-5823 gives it the ability to perform these functions. The compact size, low power consumption and fanless operation also allow it to be used "exactly" where you need it as well.
