Adlink has brought out the Littleboard 735 EBX SBC, based on the ultra low-power Intel Atom N270 processor at 1.6GHz, code-name Diamondville.

Adlink combined the advanced low-power Navy Pier platform, Atom N270 with 945GSE chipset, with its Ampro by Adlink design methodology to create a feature-rich upgrade path for previous end-of-life (EOL) products.

The Littleboard 735 has a lifecycle of seven to 10 years.

Besides the Navy Pier platform, the Littleboard 735 supports legacy features including a PCI-to-ISA bridge for full PC/104-Plus expansion, four serial ports, IDE, Compactflash socket and embedded BIOS extensions.

The Littleboard 735 uses a thick PCB and tolerates shock, vibration, humidity and temperature extremes.

Colin McCracken, product director for Adlink’s embedded computer division, said: ‘The Littleboard 735 is very budget-friendly, allowing EBX users to migrate easily their existing system-designs, cabling and PC/104-style I/O cards.’ The Littleboard 735 is a full-featured EBX form-factor single-board solution measuring 5.75 x 8.0in (146 x 203mm).

It supports the 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor with Intel 945GSE chipset (Navy Pier platform) and provides a DDR2 533 SODIMM socket for up to 2GB of RAM.

Independent 10/100BaseT and 10/100/1000BaseT Ethernet ports give system OEMs flexibility.

The Littleboard 735 also supports Intel’s integrated chipset Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA), which provides CRT, TV out and LVDS flat-panel video interfaces for popular LCDs.

It also features two SATA ports, six USB 2.0 ports and a PCIe Mini Card socket for 802.11 wireless or other plug-in cards.

The Littleboard is legacy-friendly, offering four serial ports, an EPP/ECP parallel port, PS/2 keyboard and mouse interfaces, one Ultra/DMA 33/66/100 IDE controller and a Compact Flash socket.

To provide the ISA bus on the board through the PC/104 connector, an ITE IT8888 PCI-to-ISA Bridge is included.

The PCI-based device, together with unique Distributed DMA (DDMA) BIOS enhancements, completes the rich legacy I/O support for easy system OEM migration from end-of-life EBX products.

The Littleboard 735 is a low power EBX solution that also facilitates migration, consuming less than 12W even with graphics and when both Ethernet ports are running.

The Quickstart Kit comes with board-support packages (BSPs) for many popular operating systems, including VxWorks, Windows CE, Windows XP Embedded, Linux 2.6 and QNX.
