From General Micro Systems (GMS) comes an Intel Atom-based rugged single-board computer (SBC) that boasts low power consumption. Combined with a small footprint (63.5mm x 83.82mm x 12.7mm) and high performance, the Atom XPC40x (extended temperature, conduction-cooled) and Atom XP40x (standard temperature) accommodate 64GB of storage via onboard solid-state disk.

Features include a 1.6GHz Atom processor that provides 512KB of cache memory and 533MHz DDR-2 SDRAM, five USB 2.0 ports, and support for two Express Mini Cards for further expansion. The board is designed for the defense industry to Mil-Std-810F, making it suitable for handheld or body-mounted applications where minimizing weight and heat are primary considerations.

The Atom XPC40x operates at -40C to +85C with a maximum thermal gain of only 5C above ambient. Average power dissipation is 3W (10W peak).

The Atom XPC40x and XP40x support Windows XP/XPE, Vista, Linux and VxWorks. Prices start at $1,295 for the conduction-cooled XPC40x and $695 for the standard-temperature XP40X in single quantities.
