This HighRel design brings Pentium™ class CPU power to Embedded PC applications, where compactness, low power consumption and fanless operation are key requirements.
As PCI bus, Fast-Ethernet and Flat Panel support becomes more and more important for embedded system design engineers, the "Cool RoadRunner-II" module is the first real All-In-One single board computer in his class.
The module was especially designed to support internet appliances like Thin Clients, WEBTVs, CARPCs and Embedded Servers. It features a wide range of peripheral functions such as COM1/2, LPT with EPP/EPC, EIDE, FDD, PS/2 Mouse, PS/2 Keyboard, VGA, IrDA, 2 x USB, Sound-I/O, Fast Ethernet (100/10BaseT), TV-Out and direct Video-In port.
It also features extensive flat panel support with resolutions up to 1280 x 1024 at 8bpp. The flat panel interface can be connected bit-parallel or by using the long distance on low EMI PanelLink™ standard.
The on board watchdog and voltage supervisory circuit prevents system malfunctions.
SDRAM and SSD flash disk can be selected per application requirements. A CompactFlash socket (type 1 and 2, IDE compatible) can be used for CompactFlash Cards up to 96 MB and also for MicroDrive hard disk from IBM. The 44-pin EIDE port can be used for additional CompactFlash™ devices, hard disks and CD-ROM drives in master/slave configuration.
Although the "Cool RoadRunner-II" SBC has all peripherals on board, the module can be easily extended by the ISA and the PCI bus by using extension boards in the PC/104-Plus standard. For example by an external PCI bus based frame grabber module or a PCI bus based SCSI module or an ISA bus based Fieldbus controller.
An additional FDD power connector can be used to power the complete system, when the PC/104-Plus bus connectors are not applicable. The "Cool RoadRunner-II" board is designed for a single supply voltage of 5 VDC. All necessary voltages are generated onboard.
