Low Power Intel Celeron M PC/104-Plus CPU Module -- AX12280

Full-function PC/104-Plus embedded CPU board comes with a small footprint, advanced graphics, connectivity and expansion features for reliable operation in space-limited and extreme environments.

Taipei, Taiwan, June 30, 2008 - AXIOMTEK, an Associate Member of the Intel Embedded and Communications Alliance (ECA), has released a powerful PC/104-Plus form factor CPU module, the AX12280, which supports an onboard fanless ULV Intel Celeron M up to 1 GHz plus 512K L2 cache with FSB 400 MHz. Powered by the Intel 910GMLE+ICH6-M chipset and ITE8888G PCI-to-ISA bridge, the AX12280 offers LVDS+CRT, DualView, USB DiskonModule and PC/104-Plus for both 16-bit ISA and 32-bit PCI expansion, and supports up to 1 GB of DDR2 400/533 MHz system memory. The ultra low power CPU module is suitable for small size and limited space applications, such as thin client, transportation and portable medical equipment.

The AX12280 also supports ultra low voltage Intel Celeron M 600 MHz plus 512K L2 cache and 1 GHz plus 0K L2 cache processors. This full-function PC/104-Plus CPU module is a small yet powerful solution that combines the fast data throughput of PC104-Plus with the low power features. In a small rugged form factor, the AX12280 provide a full set of I/O features including Gigabit Ethernet, AC'97 codec audio, four USB 2.0 ports, one PATA IDE port, two RS-232, two SATA-150, one PS/2 port, and digital I/O. Additionally, the built-in Watchdog Timer has enhanced the system reliability. The board is required only +5V power input.

"The AX12280 is designed for systems that require low cost, a small footprint, low power consumption, onboard storage capabilities, and high-speed networking" said Gary Tsao, Product Manager of Embedded Computing Platforms Division. "With its PC/104-Plus interface, the AX12280 provides the use of a high speed PCI bus (32-bit) in most embedded application and high reliability due to PC/104's inherent ruggedness."

The AX12280 is an extremely compact and rugged PC/104-Plus CPU module that combines high functionality with low power requirements, making it ideally suited for mission critical applications. The AX12280 is RoHS compliant, and is available around the end of June.
