Offered as the market's first RISC-based system with a USB Master and compact flash, the Graphics Master includes an on-board four port USB hub, a USB downstream power switch, and a USB slave/USB bus master. A key capability of the board is its compact flash interface connector, which extends the existing flash memory options of 8, 16 or 32 MB flash, and complements the 16 and 32 MB SDRAM options running at 103 MHz.
The board also extends the serial ports from three to seven, with IrDA, RS-232, TTL and RS485 options, and includes a controller area network bus, PCMCIA slot, 10Base-T Ethernet interface, and a re-configurable SMART I/O package that selects from 32 digital I/Os, 12 analog inputs, an 8x8 keypad, and 2 PWMs. Other features include a 32-bit Intel StrongARM SA-1110 and SA-1111 companion chip RISC processor with clock rates up to 206 MHz. Compatible operating systems include Windows CE, Microware's OS-9 and WindRiver's VxWorks. The Graphics Master is also claimed to be one of the first OEM embedded computers with Linux ported to it. Single-unit price is $300.
