Atom-Based Single-Board Computer Goes Fanless

The Ocelot, a small, fanless single-board computer (SBC), takes advantage of all the best features of Intel’s latest Atom processor (Z5xx series), which was designed specifically for embedded applications. Based upon Intel's 45nm Hi-k metal-gate silicon technology, the Z5xx series Atom chip offers very high performance (up to 1.6 GHz), radically reduced power requirements, and ground-breaking power management capabilities. The board is suited for thermally constrained embedded applications that can benefit from fanless operation including military/aerospace applications, medical devices, robotics, factory automation, and other OEM markets. Based on the PC/104 standard footprint of 3.55" x 3.78", the Ocelot is also claimed as one of the first products to feature the new SUMIT expansion scheme developed by the Small Form Factor Special Interest Group (SFF-SIG). Standard on-board features include up to 2 GB of socketed DDR2 RAM, a Gigabit Ethernet port, up to seven USB 2.0 interfaces, IDE port, Disk-On-Module Flash site, four RS-232/422/485 COM ports, high-definition stereo audio, integrated LVDS, and optional analog VGA support. Support for keyboard, mouse, external storage, and other devices are provided via USB ports. The Ocelot board is sampling now, and will be available in production quantities in September. Pricing for the Ocelot is approximately $750 each in OEM quantities. VERSALOGIC CORP., Eugene, OR. (800) 824-3163.
