Extends Kontron´s Array of PICMG 1.2 Products
BOSTON, September 15, 2003 - Kontron, a leading embedded computer technology company, today introduced the ePCI-102 -- an entry-level, value-priced addition to Kontron´s PICMG 1.2 product line.
Based on the VIA CPU and chipset, the ePCI-102 supports the VIA Eden 733MHz platform and the VIA Antaur¿ 1.2 GHz processor. The ePCI-102 can support up to 512MB of PC133 SDRAM and features a 10/100 Base T-TX Ethernet interface. VGA performance is provided by the integrated Pro Savage 4 with CRT and flat panel support. The ePCI-102 also supports a CompactFlash disk. Other I/Os include four USB ports, PS/2 mouse/keyboard, floppy, Ultra DMA/100, parallel and serial ports.
Designed to support embedded applications such as point of sales terminals, small network security appliances, test & measurement and industrial automation applications, the ePCI-102 will offer a natural evolution for current VIPer (ISA Half-Size) board users and will allow them to scale up with higher performance ePCI products -- such as the ePCI-200 or others now in development -- as their requirements evolve.
The ePCI-102 will be available mid-November through Kontron´s First On The Street (FOTS) program for early access to Alpha products. General availability is planned for the end of Q4. Single quantity list price for the ePCI-102 will be $375US (actual pricing will vary). Contact your Kontron Sales Engineer at 1-800-523-2320 for OEM pricing.
