Parvus Corporation has announced the release of its SpacePC 2320 Series CPU, an Intel Pentium MMX compatible embedded PC integrating a low-power NS Geode GX1 266MHz processor together with a host of peripheral and software support.

According to Parvus, the module includes 128MB SDRAM and interfaces for 10/100 Ethernet, E-IDE, floppy, 2x USB, 2x Serial, LCD-TFT/ LCD-CRT video, AC97 sound, parallel, PS/2 keyboard/mouse, as well as a solid state disk (SSD) socket for non-volatile DiskOnChip memory.

The 2320 Series computer board is designed for high performance embedded applications that leverage either standard PC or real-time operating systems (RTOS), including Windows 95/98/NT/CE, VxWorks, QNX, Linux or ROM-DOS.

Available in both standard (0 degrees C to +60 degrees C) and extended temperature (-40 degrees C to +85 degrees C) versions, the 2320 Series is said to make an attractive platform for aviation, industrial, medical, military, and transportation computing applications. According to parvus, this is due to its high performance processing (266MHz) together with low power consumption (5.4W) and high reliability (no moving parts). A 300MHz version can also be purchased, if minimum order quantities are met.

While supplies last, a limited quantity of the SpacePC 2320 CPU is also available for free evaluation. Visit <A HREF=’http://www.SpacePC.com’>SpacePC</A> for more information about the entire line of SpacePC PC/104 and PC/104-Plus CPU modules.
