Advantech's new single-board computer uses Intel's LGA 755 socket, running off Pentium 4 and Celeron D processors at processing speeds up to 3.8/3.06 GHz and a front size bus speed of 800/533 MHz. The Pentium 4 processor has higher performance with up to 2 MB of L2 cache. The main board uses Intel's 915GV chipset with Hyper-Threading technology, and can take up to 4 GB of dual channel DDRII 400/533 SDRAM, with up to 8.5 GB/s of bandwidth. It has 128 MB of video memory in a onboard VGA controller, plus the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900, and it also supports dual monitors. It also has four serial-ATA device support, eight USB 2.0 ports, two PCI-Express x1 slots for LAN chips, 14-pin general-purpose I/O interface as 8-bit programmable digital I/O, AC-97 interface audio, and CMOS automatic BIOS data backup.
One way to keep a Formula One racing team moving at breakneck speed in the pit and at the test facility is to bring CAD drawings of the racing vehicleís parts down to the test facility and even out to the track.
