Board computers use PPGA processor
Intel`s Celeron processor repackaged for embedded applications is used in Trenton Technology`s CBX single-board computers. Using Intel`s 400-MHz Plastic Pin Grid Array (PPGA) processor and 440BX AGP chipset, the board includes an on-board 10/100Base-T Ethernet interface, an AGP SVGA video interface with 2 Mbytes of Rambus display memory for full-screen video, and an ultrawide SCSI interface supporting a 40-Mbyte/s data-transfer rate. Other on-board features include dual PCI EIDE, floppy interface, two serial ports, parallel port, and a PS/2 mouse port. A system hardware monitor tracks system voltages, temperatures, and fan speeds. The CBX range complies with the PCI Local Bus 2.1 and PICMG 2.0 specifications. Pricing starts at $1760.
