Compact Panel PC With 7” Color LCD & Touch Screen

Carbondale, Illinois, May 1, 2009 — EMAC, Inc. announces the PPC-E7, a compact Panel PC with a 7 inch WVGA (800 x 480) TFT color LCD and a resistive touch screen. Unlike other compact Panel PCs, the PPC-E7 comes with either Windows CE 6.0 or Linux fully configured and installed on flash disk. This allows the software engineer to concentrate on writing applications and not have to worry about configuration and setup. Just apply power and watch the Linux X Windows User Interface appear on the vivid color LCD. Interact with the PPC-E7 using the responsive, integrated touchscreen.

The PPC-E7 compact Panel PC has an embedded Cirrus ARM 9, EP9307 200Mhz Fanless Low Power Processor with a Hardware Floating Point Math Coprocessor. Typical power consumption is less than 5 Watts and the LED backlight can be shut off when not in use to further decrease its power consumption.

This Panel PC supports up to 128MB of SDRAM, 64 MB of Flash, and 128K bytes of serial flash. In addition, a MMC/SD card socket is provided for additional Flash storage. The PPC-E7 can be connected to a network using the 10/100 Base-T Ethernet controller and it’s onboard RJ-45 connector.

The PPC-E7 offers two RS-232 serial ports, and one RS-422/485 port with Auto RS485. Also provided are three USB 2.0 host ports, an I2S Audio port and a battery backed real time clock.

When developing CE 6.0 application for the PPC-E7, Microsoft Visual Studio 2005/2008 can be utilized. For Linux application development, EMAC provides a Free Eclipse IDE. Both Visual Studio and Eclipse provide everything the user needs for developing PPC-E7 applications. All the compiling, converting, downloading, and debugging inherent to software development can be done from one easy to use high level interface.
