WinSystems Inc.'s SAT-520Plus PC/104 expandable embedded computer combines an AMD SC520 processor with a 10/100 Ethernet controller, four serial COM ports, and a CRT/flat-panel video controller.

The board, which is being aimed at thin-client and other industrial network-enabled applications, supports Linux, Windows and DOS Sockets software, and network data transmission protocols.

The SAT-520Plus measures 114.3-by-180.34mm and operates from -40C to 85C. The unit is targeted for the test, industrial telecommunication, data communication, and information appliance markets.

"Embedded-system designers have shown keen interest in utilizing well-known, inexpensive PC technologies for industrial Internet, and intranet applications," said Bob Burckle, VP of WinSystems. "Since the SAT-520Plus' architecture is PC-compatible, it supports a vast software tool set including operating systems, Web servers, device drives, libraries, languages, and debugging tools."

The SAT-520Plus is based on the 32-bit, X86-compatible AMD SC520, operating at 133MHz. The CPU core includes a floating-point unit plus enhancements to the PCI controller and SDRAM controller to optimize it for applications requiring high throughput combined with low latency. The board's 32-bit PCI interface is connected to the 10/100 Ethernet controller, CRT/flat-panel video controller, and PC/104-Plus connector.

The system accepts up to 256MB of SDRAM and up to a 1Gb M-Systems DiskOnChip Flash memory. Four independent, full-duplex, 16C550-compatible UARTs provide serial-data communication up to 115.2kbps. Twenty-four lines of digital I/O, a floppy-disk controller, IDE interface, keyboard controller, line-printer interface, and mouse port are included.

Delivery is from stock to three weeks. The SAT-520Plus-133-0 lists for $499.
