CoreModule 720 based on the Intel® Atom™ Processor E600T series for low power consumption in space-constrained, extreme rugged environments
San Jose, CA – ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading global provider of ruggedized embedded products, today announced that EDN has named the CoreModule® 720 PC/104-Plus single board computer (SBC) as one of the “100 Hot Products of 2012.” The 2012 EDN Hot 100 highlights the electronics industry’s most significant products of the year based on innovation, significance, usefulness, and popularity.
“It’s gratifying to have our product recognized by a well-regarded third-party such as EDN,” said Jeff Munch, CTO of ADLINK Technology. “As a standards-leader, ADLINK strives to raise the bar for rugged design so that our customers are able to create ever more innovative applications using compact form factor technology.”
The Ampro by ADLINK™ Extreme Rugged™ CoreModule 720 is based on the Intel® Atom™ Processor E600T series from 600 MHz up to 1.6 GHz. The PC/104-Plus stackable form factor allows customers to build low power solutions for space constrained, extreme rugged environments. The SBC offers PCI and ISA bus connectivity, an integrated 4GB SSD, CAN bus, SATA, and a broad range of peripheral I/O support. Designed to meet stringent shock and vibration requirements, the CoreModule 720 uses 50% thicker printed circuit board (PCB) and supports an extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.
“It's always a fun and enlightening challenge for the EDN editors to select the year's Hot 100 products, which has been an annual tradition at EDN since 1993. This year's selection not only reflects some technology trends that have been in place for a while, but also highlights some new trends that are just emerging, as well as a unique product or two that is in a class of its own,” said Rich Pell, executive and chief technical editor, EDN.
