Pentium?/font> MMX POS Control Board for Multimedia Applications

POS-562 Introduction

The POS-562 is a powerful Pentium?/font> processor-based control board designed for high-end multimedia POS applications as well as other special OEM markets. It supports Intel Pentium?/font>, Pentium?/font> MMX, AMD K5 and K6, and NS 6x86 processors. The POS-562 is packed with special on-board features like 100/10Base-T Ethernet, 16-bit sound, 36-bit XGA LCD and LVDS support as well as DOC?/font> 2000 and an abundance of IOs.

The POS-562 uses a standardized layout based on Western Digital's LPM/LPX format. It is 100% PC compatible and readily connectable to any existing PC hardware and software. Special POS features like four on-board serial ports, each with +5 V/+12 V power output capability, and two USB connections are available to accommodate a wide array of POS peripherals.

POS-562's industrial grade construction allows it to withstand continuous operation in a harsh POS environment where reliability is essential. Other on-board industrial features not found on conventional motherboards include a watchdog timer for dependability during unmanned operations, and CMOS backup to Flash ROM. An on-board SSD socket can support DiskOnChip?/font> Flash modules.

The POS-562 includes two 72-pin SIMM sockets and one 168-pin DIMM socket for up to 128 MB total on-board memory.
