At the Embedded Systems Conference in Boston, WinSystems announced their EBC-Z8510-G single board computer (SBC), powered by an Intel 1.1-GHz Atom processor. This SBC measures 203 by 147 mm (8.5 by 5.75 in.) and supports the SUMIT-ISM (Stackable Unified Modular Interconnect Technology Industry Standard Module) I/O expansion standard plus COMIT (Computer On Module Interconnect Technology) defined by the Small Form Factor Special Interest Group (SFF-SIG). With a blend of high-bandwidth PCI Express (PCIe) lanes, USB ports, and lower speed multiplexed and serial buses, SUMIT and COMIT can be added to various board form factors, and is flexible and compact enough to meet a broad range of applications.
The EBC-Z530-G is a full-featured SBC with a rich array of on-board peripherals and expansion options. Its I/O interface features two Gigabit Ethernet ports; CRT and LVDS flat panel video; a MiniPCIe card interface for a wireless networking module; four USB 2.0 ports; four serial COM ports; HD audio; PATA controller for both a CompactFlash and hard disk; 48 lines of digital I/O; LPT; and a PS/2 port for keyboard and mouse. Additional I/O module expansion is supported with two SUMIT and legacy PC/104 connectors. This RoHS-compliant board operates over an industrial temperature range of -40° to +70°C for processor- and I/O-intensive applications in harsh and demanding environments.
Because the EBC-Z510-G's architecture is PC compatible, it supports the Windows XP embedded and Linux OSs along with a vast software development tool set including device drivers and libraries. It also supports advanced features such as custom splash screen, APM and ACPI power management modes, and PXE boot.
