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).
