SAN DIEGO, Calif., Oct. 30, 2000 - ICS Advent, the premier provider of business-critical applied computing solutions, today launched the Aviant Dual BX Single Board Computer (SBC). The Aviant Dual BX features dual Intel Pentium III processor support, which provides the required processing muscle and expandability for a variety of sophisticated internet, telephony and telecommunications applications, as well as for typical rugged system implementations. The new SBC boasts a stable platform that utilizes reliable components and supports higher-end operating systems like Microsoft Windows NT and Windows 2000, as well as Windows 95/98/ME, Solaris, SCO and Linux. The Aviant Dual BX SBC is available immediately and is competitively priced at $1095.

The Aviant Dual BX SBC provides processing power of up to 850MHz with 100MHz system bus support to provide stable and dependable performance. It uses the Intel 440BX AGP chipset and four DIMM sockets supporting up to one GB SDRAM memory. Additionally, the new SBC has a DiskOnChip socket that supports Flash Disk up to 144 MB and a C&T 69000 VGA display that supports up to 1280 x 1024, 256-color mode and 60Hz refresh rate with 2MB integrated memory.

The new Aviant Dual BX SBC uses reliable components such as the on-board Intel 82259 Fast Ethernet controller, and offers Wake-On-LAN and Modem Ring-On capabilities, along with system monitoring functionality.
