AAEON's newest ISA-Bus CPU card has a north bridge integrated with an onboard VIA Mark CoreFusion 533 MHz processor. Its single SODIMM socket allows a total memory capacity of up to 512MB, and the card supports 128MB of onboard memory. It is a low-power system that doesn't need a CPU fan. A two-channel TTL LCD interface connects to an integrated AGP 4x 2D/3D video accelerator. It uses up to a maximum 32MB frame buffer using system memory, and supports 36-bit LVDS LCD/CRT. Standard LAN connections include single 10/100Mbps, dual 10/100Mbps, single 10/100/1000Mbps, or a 10/100Mbps/10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet combination, and a version without an Ethernet port is also available. It has three USB 1.1 ports, four serial ports, a parallel port, an IrDA port, and an AC-97 SoundBlaster compatible audio (daughter card optional).
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
