I/O-Rich SBC Is Based On Intel’s Atom Procesor

Pluto is a compact, I/O-rich board-level embedded computer based on the Intel Atom processor and featuring modular PC/104-Plus expansion. PLT-N270-1G is the first in a series of Pluto models offering scalable CPU performance and power consumption. It integrates a low-power 1.6-GHz Atom processor along with up to 2 Gbytes of DDR2 SDRAM. Operating temperature ranges from -20°C to +70°C. Pluto targets defense, transportation, energy-management, industrial automation applications. Its high-resolution display controller supports analog and LVDS-interfaced CRTs and LCDs, and also provides a TV output option. Additional I/O interfaces include two 10/100-Mbps Ethernet LAN ports, an IDE interface, two SATA interfaces, four USB 2.0 ports, four serial ports, a parallel port, a programmable digital I/O port, and a CompactFlash I/II socket. Pluto is a low-profile board-set comprising an ETX CPU module mated with an ETX-sized (3.5 x 3.7 inches) I/O baseboard. A PC/104-Plus socket on Pluto’s top side makes it easy to tailor the system to an embedded application’s precise requirements by plugging in suitable expansion modules. Supported operating systems currently include Windows XP and Linux 2.6, with support for additional operating systems available on request. Shipping now, the Pluto PLT-N270-1G, which is based on a 1.6-GHz Intel Atom processor and equipped with 1 Gbyte SDRAM and a heat-spreader, is priced at $599. An interface cable kit is available for $45. DIAMOND SYSTEMS CORP., Mountain View, CA. (650) 810-2500.
