486 Control Board for POS Applications

POS-460 Introduction

Designed with POS applications in mind, the POS-460 all-in-one control board simplifies POS system integration with on-board Super I/O, LCD controller, VGA, solid state disk and Ethernet.

The POS-460 uses a standardized layout based on Western Digital's LPM/LPX format. It is 100% PC compatible, ready to adapt to any existing PC hardware and software. Special POS provisions, such as digital I/Os and four on-board serial ports, each with +5 V/+12 V power output capability, are available to accommodate a wide array of POS peripherals.

POS-460's industrial grade construction allows it to withstand continuous operation in a harsh POS environment where reliability is a must. Other on-board industrial features not found on typical motherboards include a watchdog timer for dependability during unmanned operations, and CMOS backup to Flash ROM. An on-board SSD, capable of adapting SRAM, Flash or EPROM, is perfect for POS data backup or emulating a floppy disk drive. For a longer product life cycle, the POS-460 can adapt to any 486 CPU from the 486SX to the 5x86 CPU simply by rearranging jumpers.

In addition to a 72-pin SIMM socket for up to 32 MB of DRAM, an optional 1 MB or 4 MB DRAM can be affixed to the board to reduce the overall DRAM cost and increase system stability.
