ReadyBoard 830

Ampro Computers Inc., an Adlink Technology company, introduces the ReadyBoard 830 single board computer based on Intel's dual core processors and GME945 chipset. The ReadyBoard 830 integrates a single- or dual-core processor, RAM, graphics, networking and robust I/O in a small form factor suitable for applications that require high performance like gaming, digital signage, video surveillance, and medical imaging applications.

Featuring a 1.66GHz Intel Core Duo L2400 processor or 1.07GHz ULV Celeron, two SODIMM sockets for up to 4GB of 533MHz DDR2 RAM, Intel GMA950 built-in graphics display, the ReadyBoard 830 can support CRTs, flat panels and wide screen digital TVs at resolutions of up to 2048 x 1536. An onboard video encoder adds TV-out capabilities such as HDTV (420p, 720p and 1080i), Component and S-Video.

"With its unique blend of high integration, performance, and reliability, Ampro's ReadyBoard 830 meets our customer's demanding requirements for full featured computing in a compact form factor," Ampro's general manager, PJ Go said. "We expect this exciting new single board computer to enhance a wide range of embedded applications, such as industrial automation, multimedia kiosks, gaming, and medical devices."

The highly-integrated ReadyBoard 830 also features a broad complement of I/O including: dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, six USB 2.0 channels, AC97/HD audio, two SATA and one UDMA EIDE interfaces, compact flash socket, four serial ports with two supporting RS-422/485 capability, eight GPIO pins, and a parallel port. Expansion capability includes a PCI Express Mini Card and a PCI-104 expansion bus. An optional MiniModule ISA card provides a PCI-to-ISA bridge for compatibility with hundreds of commercial PC/104 (ISA bus) I/O cards.

The 1.66GHz dual core processor uses less than 15W total power, while the 1.07GHz single processor uses less than 5.5W.

The ReadyBoard 830 compliments Ampro's rugged, cost effective ReadyBoard 820 featuring Intel's Pentium M and Celeron M CPUs with the 915GM chipset. The ReadyBoard 820 offers high performance power efficient processing in a low cost EPIC single board computer that meets demanding environments with a -20°C to 70°C operating temperature range.

The ReadyBoard 820 features integrated 3D graphics with support for Intel DVMT 3.0 (Dynamic Video Memory Technology), up to 2GB of 533MHz DDR2 memory, 10/100/1000 and 10/100 Ethernet ports, six USB 2.0 channels, an AC97 audio controller, two SATA and one UDMA EIDE storage interfaces, compact flash socket, four serial ports with two supporting RS-422/485 capability, eight GPIO pins, one parallel port, and a PCI-104 expansion bus.

Ampro supports the ReadyBoard 830 and ReadyBoard 820 with a full range of popular embedded and desktop operating systems, including a full Linux 2.6-based distribution (derived from Ubuntu packages), Windows Embedded CE 6.0 and Windows XP Embedded.
