Embedded controller maker WIN Enterprises Inc. announces its RoHS-compatible IP-06060 single-board computer that uses an Advanced Micro Devices Geode LX 800@0.9W processor.

As its name implies, the AMD 500MHz Geode silicon dissipates 900mW. The Geode also touts built-in encryption and two-dimensional graphics. Significantly, the Geode processor is an x86-based device, so it can run the vast available library of conventional PC software. The SBC uses an Insyde 256 flash BIOS and a WinBond 83627HF chipset.

WIN's computer measures 5.7-by-4 inches, and is designed to complement the AMD Geode processor with a serial ATA interface, VGA LCD capability, two 10/100 Ethernet LAN ports, audio and a solid-state disk. The product dissipates 15W and runs from single 5V sources.

Expansion ports
Equipped with a PC/104 expansion interface, the IP-06060 also includes a VIA VT6421A serial ATA RAID controller, and supports one DDR SO-DIMM (small outline, dual in-line memory module) housing up to 1Gbyte of RAM.

The computer also supports CRT and TFT LCD display interfaces, as well as packing an AC 97-compatible codec for audio. There are Speaker Out and microphone input jacks.

For a CRT, the system supports resolution up to 1,920 x 1,440 x 32 at 85Hz, and up to 1,600 x 1,200 x 32 at 100Hz. In its LCD simulation mode, the SBC supports 1,024 x 768-pixels at 60Hz.

The IP-06060 also includes support for up to three Ultra ATA-133 IDE devices, three RS-232 devices, RS-422, RS-485 serial ports and a parallel port. It includes an IrDA-compatible infrared port as well.
