Acrosser Launches New ISA Half-Size CPU Board with Legacy ISA Supporting

Pulheim, (PresseBox) - Acrosser Technology Co. Ltd, global professional industrial embedded computer manufacturer, announces AR-B8172, a new ISA half-size CPU board with DM&P Votrex86DX 800MHz SoC and 256MB DDRII memory. The key component on AR-B8172 like CPU and memory is onboard design to avoid the shock and vibration issue that is happened in the machine used in factory. Industrial customers are familiar with CF socket and IDE interface for storage. There are both of CF and IDE on AR-B8172. It reduces the risk and time to change the boot and storage devices when changing the CPU board. AR-B8172 meets design of standard ISA half-size card and it is well-suited for the industrial chassis and backplane. Based on the above reasons, AR-B8172 is the attractive solution for industrial automation or factory instrument field.

Legacy ISA Supporting

AR-B8172 has legacy PC/104 interface that through ISA Bus by Vortex86DX. It doesn't need a bridge chip to transfer PCI signal to ISA signal. It has good compatibility with the older carrier board, motion card or IO card. By true ISA supporting, it can replace the older or phased-out CPU platform like Ali or STPC. Those CPU are hard to buy and the cost is raised. AR-B8172 will be a nice alternative platform to develop.

Low Power Consumption Solution

AR-B8172 is equipped with Vortex86DX is a low power consumption platform. Vortex86DX's power consumption is 2~3 Watts and the total power consumption of AR-B8172 under full-loading near 6 Watts. AR-B8172 also offers VGA output, two serial ports and four USB for basic IO requirement. AR-B8172 will be an ideal solution for embedded application which need lower CPU performance and less IO in harsh environment.

The following is features and specifications for AR-B8172:

- CPU: Onboard DM&P Vortex86DX 800MHz
- Memory: Onboard 256MB DDR2 SDRAM
- Storage: 1 x IDE, 1 x CF, 1 x FDD
- Display: 1 x VGA
