ADLINK Technology Inc. announces the release of its newest small form factor (SFF) rugged single board computer (SBC), the Ampro by ADLINK™ CoreModule® 745. The CoreModule® 745 is a PC/104-Plus module that continues ADLINK's ongoing investment in the PC/104 marketplace.

Supporting a range of Intel® Atom™ processors from the power efficient N450 running at 1.66GHz to the performance oriented dual-core D510, the CoreModule® 745 takes advantage of Atom's two-chip solution architecture with integrated memory and graphics controllers to balance excellent performance with very low power requirements. With a TDP as low as 9W, the CoreModule® 745 simplifies cooling requirements and enables conduction cooled solutions for small sealed enclosures in space-constrained applications.

Rugged by design, the CoreModule® 745 supports a wealth of legacy I/O interfaces including ISA and PCI buses. Serial ports, one GbE port and up to 2GB of DDR2 667MHz RAM are also incorporated into an expanded PC/104 footprint. This stackable PC/104-Plus SBC allows OEMs in military, avionics, transportation and other rugged markets to add a state-of-the-art Intel® Architecture controller to their systems without the need for a custom carrier board. The CoreModule® 745 also provides a simple upgrade path for the broad base of existing PC/104 system designs.

The CoreModule® 745 is a PC/104-Plus SBC developed with the Ampro by ADLINK™ Extreme Rugged™ design methodology, enabling operation at temperatures from -40°C to +85°C, vibration up to 11.95Grms, and shock up to 50Grms. With a 4GB solid state drive soldered onboard, the CoreModule® 745 is a complete solution with no moving parts, satisfying military and aerospace requirements for missions in the most extreme environments.

The CoreModule® 745 also features a full 16-bit ISA bus, PCI 32-bit bus, one GbE port, two RS-232 serial ports, one RS-232/422/485 port, four USB 2.0 ports and eight GPIO. In addition, the CoreModule® 745 offers excellent graphics performance with an LVDS panel interface and legacy CRT support. For harsh environments, optional conformal coating is offered.

The CoreModule® 745 is available now in production quantities with QuickStart Kits including cables, 2GB DDR2 RAM, device drivers and board support packages (BSPs) for many popular operating systems including VxWorks®, Windows® CE, Windows® XP Embedded, Linux® and QNX.
