Power comes in small packages

A complete miniature PC module for embedded applications is now available from Strategic Test. The MAX-PC has a footprint of only 29x58x10mm and is compatible with Windows, Linux and real time operating systems such as QNX. In addition, the company claims a range of interface cards and I/O modules makes integrating the MAX-PC into a design very simple and enables future upgrades and system expansion.

Manufactured by Germany-based Sorcus Computer, the module contains a 486-100MHz or 486-33MHz processor, up to 64MByte of Ram, a watch-dog timer, two interrupt controllers and a VGA controller capable of driving standard monitors or LCD and TFT flat-panel displays.
