AAEON Releases a Rugged, Wide Temperature PC/104 CPU Module--PFM-541I

Taipei Taiwan (Dec. 16, 2008) – AAEON, a premier Industrial PC manufacturer, has launched a new PC/104 CPU module— the PFM-541I. This model was designed with a focus on wide operating temperature, rugged mechanical characteristics and compact size. The debut of the PFM-541I heralds the advancements in the technology of wide temperature electronics.

The PFM-541I is built upon the AMD Geode™ LX800 processor and AMD CS5536 I/O chip. With up to 256MB of onboard DDR333 system memory, the PFM-541I is delivered ready to run.

Offering two 10/100Base-TX Ethernet ports as well as 4 USB2.0, 4 COM ports and PC/104 expansion, the PFM-541I meets demanding connectivity and expansion requirements. Storage needs are met by both IDE and CompactFlash™ interfaces.

“The PFM-541I was designed to meet the growing demand for products able to perform in harsh environments. The automated world does not stop at the boundaries of a comfortable climate. Extreme heat and cold must be accounted for in the design of electronic products. Aaeon is proud to offer a new standard for wide temperature boards. Our Wide Temperature Assurance Service (WiTAS) is now available in 2 levels, WiTAS I (–25 oC to 70 oC) and WiTAS II (–40oC to 80oC.) The PFM-541I is available in both WiTAS I and WiTAS II standards“, explains Tony Huang, Product Manager of AAEON’s Embedded Computing Division.
