ADLINK - CoreModule® 920
ADLINK Technology, Inc. Posted 03/19/2013
SAN JOSE, CA – ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading provider of application-ready intelligent platforms, releases its newest Extreme Rugged™ CoreModule® offering. The ADLINK CoreModule® 920, with outstanding mechanical, thermal and power design, is able to support Intel® Core™ i7 performance with low power consumption in a small PC/104 form factor, making it an ideal choice for mission-critical applications in space-constrained environments such as transportation, aviation and defense/homeland security.
Integrating a dual-core 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor running at up to 2.8GHz with Turbo Boost, up to 4GB of solder-down DDR3 ECC memory, 8 GB of industrial grade SSD and a fast data-transfer SATA 6 Gb/s interface, the CoreModule® 920 boasts the highest specification of PC/104 products available on the market and supports rich graphics performance with versatile video outputs, including HDMI, VGA and LVDS. The advanced capabilities of the CoreModule® 920 are intended to usher in many new applications for embedded systems, and an economically priced Intel® Celeron® CPU option is also available.
Compliant with the PCI/104-Express Type 1 standard, the CoreModule® 920 provides both PCIe and PCI connectivity and allows for SATA 6 Gb/s data transfer. Space- and cost-savings are provided by the PC/104 family’s inherent self-stacking bus, which allows modules to stack together like building blocks without backplanes or card cages. This stacking feature also delivers high reliability, using four-corner mounting holes that can resist shock and vibration. The Extreme Rugged CoreModule® 920 offers specially designed PCB, which is 50% thicker than ordinary PCBs, and an extended operating temperature range of -40oC to +85oC.
The CoreModule® 920 implements a heat spreader design, which allows for more flexible thermal solutions to enable a higher component density not common to its PC/104 family predecessors. Its customized BIOS allows users to “underclock” the CPU and reduce total power consumption and heat generation.
The CoreModule® 920’s unique mechanical, power-saving and thermal design maximize the outstanding features of the PCI/104-Express form factor, setting a new benchmark for embedded solutions in the PC/104 family at comparatively low power consumption and cost.
