Conforming to the industry-standard PC/104 form-factor (3.8" x 3.6") and powered by a National Semiconductor 300-MHz Geode processor, the MOPSlcdGX1 single-board computer (SBC) is said to be especially well suited for use in applications employing flat panel displays (FPDs). Built to withstand harsh environmental conditions, the rugged SBC offers integrated graphics capabilities and a design that is said to reduce processor temperatures sufficiently to eliminate the need both for fans and additional thermal management. The standard JILI interface on the SBC provides LVDS support for 18-bit TFT LCD displays. And among MOPSlcdGX1's other on-board features are a CompactFlash socket, dual 10/100Base-T Ethernet, two USB ports, two COM ports, and a PS/2 keyboard/mouse controller. All members of the MOPS family of SBCs are designed to provide consistent pinouts for keyboard, COM1 and COM2, IDE and LPT so as to facilitate easy migration from installed models to new or upgraded models. The MOPSlcdGX1 also supports a chipDISK flash memory IDE drive module (up to 192 MB), which locks securely on the board and reportedly will not fall out, even with rough handling. The board costs $315 each, with volume production of the off-the-shelf SBC expected to begin at the end of Q2. For more details, contact Bruce Boyer at JUMPTEC ADASTRA, Hayward, CA. (510) 732-6900.
