PFU Systems Inc. has announced what it claims to be the industry's first two Plug-N-Run G3 System-on-Modules with Intel Pentium M processors. Targeted for use in mobile and "green" embedded solutions, the modules enable OEM designers to make an early adoption of the Pentium M processor into their embedded system solutions without the risks associated with complex, high-speed designs.

It provides Gigahertz performance and low power dissipation as its power management controls provide the flexibility to set power-dissipation limits by combining Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology, graphics processor frequency selection and powering down integrated I/O devices.

Measuring 160-by-100-by-13.5mm, the Plug-N-Run G3 integrates an Intel 855GME graphics and memory controller hub, an Intel ICH4 I/O controller hub, a mezzanine interface connector for PCI bus, USB 2.0, ATA100 IDE, LPC bus, SMBus, DVO, serial ports, GPIO and powerand ground, dual, independent display pipes and multi display panel support, and dual LVDS channels, parallel port, and FDD interfaces.

Kishan Jainandunsing, VP of marketing, said, "Plug-N-Run G3 enables OEMs to proactively design-in from the start application-specific power management and security policies in partnership with their customers, avoiding costly field upgrades, product returns and support issues."

Compatible with Linux, Microsoft Windows 2000,XP, and RTOSes, the first Plug-N-Run G3 modules are shipping in 1.1GHz and 1.6GHz speed grades. The 1.1GHz modules are priced at $849, while the 1.6GHz modules are available for $1,149 in OEM quantities. A development board is also available for software development and prototyping.
