Half-size 486 CPU Card with SSD

PCA-6144S Introduction

The ISA-bus half-size PCA-6144S accepts 80486 DX/DX2/DX4 or 5x86 CPUs. Included on-board are one serial RS-232 port, one serial RS-232/RS-422/RS-485 port, an enhanced bidirectional parallel port, an EIDE hard disk drive interface, a floppy disk controller and a watchdog timer. The watchdog timer resets the CPU if it stops due to a program or EMI problem. This allows the PCA-6144S to be used in stand-alone systems or unattended environments. The PCA-6144S's industrial-grade construction ensures reliable operation in harsh environments at temperatures of up to 140?F (60?C).

The PCA-6144S has been designed with SBC (Single Board Computer) applications in mind. It incorporates a single-voltage power supply (+5 V), built-in Flash/ROM disk (emulating a 360 KB/1.44 MB disk drive) and a connector for PC/104 modules (Flat-panel/CRT VGA controller, Flash/RAM/ROM disk, etc). Its two 72-pin SIMM sockets accept a total of 1 to 64 MB DRAM.

You can also use this 8-layer CPU card to transform any system into a 32-bit 486 compatible computer. Its all-in-one configuration frees up valuable expansion slots. Its highly compact form and numerous features make it an ideal cost/performance solution.
