Parvus Corporation has announced the availability of SpacePC CPU Evaluation Kits for its 4320, 4200, 2320, and 2110 Series embedded PC boards.
Now available to qualified prospective customers for a 30-day free evaluation, these CPU evaluation kits are said to offer effortless evaluation of Parvus’ SpacePC line, so that users can be up and running in minimal time, testing out features and capabilities of the CPU boards.
Parvus’ SpacePC CPU line of PC/104 and PC/104-Plus CPUs is characterised by its size (3.550′ x 3.775′), broad support for x86 operating systems (Windows, VxWorks, Linux, QNX), low-power consumption (4-5 watts), soldered RAM memory, optional extended temperature operation (from -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C), and breadth of integrated peripherals.
Each evaluation kit is said to come with a CPU board that is pre-installed with its peripherals interfaced to a PC/104-Plus baseboard with standard PC-style connectors for PS/2, VGA, RJ-45 Ethernet, and CompactFlash. Users need only to attach their monitor, keyboard, and mouse, then plug the provided AC/DC power adapter into a 120V outlet, and open the power switch to begin booting up.
Kits also include the standard ribbon cable sets and related adapters such as Ethernet, CAN, USB/Audio for each CPU board, a CompactFlash disk with operating system, Web browser, and TCP/IP stack, as well as a CD-ROM disk with drivers, manuals, and technical documentation. CPUs without onboard video also come with Parvus’ 104FX video card installed.
Customers will have a period of 30 days to evaluate each CPU kit, after which, customers can either return or purchase the kits. Supplies are limited and some restrictions apply.
