ADLINK Technology Presents an Extreme Rugged™ PC/104-Plus Single Board Computer with Intel® Atom Processor

The full featured, multi-core capable CoreModule® 745 delivers the next step forward in rugged, low power embedded systems and stackable platforms

ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading provider of embedded platform products and services, announced the release of its newest small form factor (SFF) rugged single board computer (SBC), the Ampro by ADLINK™ CoreModule® 745. The CoreModule® 745 is a PC/104-Plus module that continues ADLINK’s ongoing investment in the PC/104 marketplace. Supporting a range of Intel® Atom™ processors from the power efficient N450 running at 1.66GHz to the performance oriented dual-core D510, the CoreModule® 745 takes advantage of Atom’s two-chip solution architecture with integrated memory and graphics controllers to balance excellent performance with very low power requirements. With a TDP as low as 9W, the CoreModule® 745 simplifies cooling requirements and enables conduction cooled solutions for small sealed enclosures in space-constrained applications.

Rugged by design, the CoreModule® 745 supports a wealth of legacy I/O interfaces including ISA and PCI buses. Serial ports, one GbE port and up to 2GB of DDR2 667MHz RAM are also incorporated into an expanded PC/104 footprint. This stackable PC/104-Plus SBC allows OEMs in military, avionics, transportation and other rugged markets to add a state-of-the-art Intel® Architecture controller to their systems without the need for a custom carrier board. The CoreModule® 745 also provides a simple upgrade path for the broad base of existing PC/104 system designs.

"Our customers depend on ADLINK to provide the latest technology as well as legacy support in a ruggedized format that will operate under the most demanding environmental conditions," said Brian Healy, Product Management Manager of ADLINK. "The CoreModule® 745 with Intel® Atom™ processor combines an amazing range of I/O and computing capabilities for our OEMs that are developing products for zero-fail applications. With the CoreModule® 745, ADLINK once again meets the demanding requirements of military, transportation, avionics, factory floor, and other rugged and extended temperature applications."
