MICROMAX ANNOUNCES ADLINK'S RUGGED EPIC SBC WITH DUAL-CORE INTEL® ATOM™ PROCESSOR AND H.264 HARDWARE VIDEO DECODER
The ReadyBoard™ 740 supports multi-core computing and optional power protection module for transportation applications in severe environments
Wollongong, Unanderra, N S W—May 5, 2010— Micromax announces the release of the latest rugged EPIC single board computer (SBC) from ADLINK Technology Inc. (TAIEX: 6166), the Ampro by ADLINK™ ReadyBoard™ 740. The ReadyBoard™ 740 integrates an Intel® Atom™ Processor D510 (dual-core) or Intel® Atom™ Processor D410 (single-core) with ICH8M chipset, on board SSD, H.264 hardware video decoder, networking and robust I/O in a small form factor. It is suitable for applications in harsh environments that require high-end video performance such as vehicle computing platforms, self-service kiosks, digital signage, and video surveillance.
ADLINK’s ReadyBoard™ 740 provides multi-core computing power with integrated graphics and hardware HD video decoder. Featured are a 1.66GHz dual-core Intel® Atom™ processor D510 or single-core Atom™ processor D410, one SO-DIMM for up to 2GB of 667MHz DDR2 RAM, and a Broadcom Crystal HD H.264 video decoder. Graphics capabilities of the ReadyBoard™ 740 include VGA, LVDS, DVI output and efficient high-definition playback (1920 x 1080).
Conducted transient emissions and immunity are well known critical phenomena for power supply in vehicular applications and other severe environments. ADLINK has designed the MiniModule® PWR, an optional power protection module to allow the ReadyBoard™ 740 to meet the specific demands of in-vehicle power environments. With the MiniModule® PWR, the ReadyBoard™ 740 supports a wide input voltage range, reverse battery protection, overvoltage protection (OVP) and DC/DC converter, making the ReadyBoard™ 740 an ideal solution for in-vehicle devices.
The ReadyBoard™ 740 is a PCI-104 SBC developed with the Ampro by ADLINK™ Rugged
design methodology. To satisfy the most extreme conditions, the ReadyBoard™
740 has an operating temperature range of -20°C to +70°C, meets MIL-STD-202 vibration
up to 11.95Grms and shock up to 50Grms, and is ISO 7637-1, -2, -3 certified (road
vehicles—electrical disturbances from conduction and coupling).
For applications which require ultra high performance, ADLINK also presents the ReadyBoard™ 850 which is based on the Intel® CoreTM2 Duo processor and GM45 Express chipset. It provides high computing performance with rich I/O expansion including the SUMIT™ interface.
