Ultra low power, highly integrated embedded PC for rugged applications

The new Tiny-LX embedded PC from Advanced Micro Peripherals (Cambridge, UK) puts Pentium class performance into challenging environments, using the industry standard 3.7” x 4.0” PCI-104 form factor. The onboard 500MHz AMD Geode LX800 CPU features low power fan-less operation, even in extended temperatures to +85°C. The board can also be supplied with conformal coating for high humidity applications.

The Tiny-LX is fully compatible with Windows-XP/CE/XP-Embedded, Linux and a wide range of embedded real time operating systems including VxWorks and QNX Neutrino. The board features a fast 10/100MBit Ethernet controller for efficient LAN communications. The integrated display controller can drive analog VGA and TTL digital flat panel TFT displays simultaneously, with a wide range of display resolutions. The Tiny-LX also features an integrated audio codec with stereo inputs and outputs. Standard peripheral controllers for disks, keyboard, mouse, serial and USB ports are provided. The board operates from a single +5v supply. The high performance 32-bit PCI expansion bus provides a high bandwidth interface to video encoders, frame grabbers, FireWire interfaces and additional video graphics and overlay controllers.

Applications include thin server/client applications, video IP streamers, video surveillance and digital video recorders, vehicle / airborne embedded controllers, medical instrumentation, portable test equipment and industrial automation.
