WinSystems (Arlington, TX) has introduced the EBC-855-G, an EBX-compatible, Intel Celeron® 1-GHz, ultralow- power single-board computer (SBC) that operates over an industrial temperature range of -40° to 70°C for applications in military, medical, communications, security, test and measurement, and industrial automation.

The full-featured SBC has onboard peripherals that eliminate the need for additional standard I/O peripheral cards. It is based on Intel's 855GME chipset with the ICH4 communications controller and integrated Extreme Graphics 2 video 3D controller. The SBC features an Intel 1-GHz Celeron-M processor, and both the CPU and system controller are supplied from Intel's Embedded Architecture Division. The PC-compatible architecture supports Windows® CE and XP embedded, Linux, and a variety of software development toolsets, including device drivers and libraries.

It also supports real-time operating systems such as QNX and VxWorks. The board supports a maximum of 1 GB of industry-standard PC2700 SDRAM, up to 8 GB of CompactFlash, plus support for hard and floppy disk drives. It offers a set of I/O interfaces including a 10/100BaseT Ethernet port, VGA and dual-channel LVDS flat-panel video, a miniPCI connector that supports an optional 802.11 wireless networking module, four USB 2.0 ports, four serial COM ports, AC97 audio, LPT, and a PS/2 port for keyboard and mouse. A software-programmable 48-line digital I/O controller is onboard that provides input, output, or output with readback for each I/O line. The board is populated with both PC/104 and PC/104-Plus interface connectors.
