Transmeta Crusoe SBC with CPU, 64 MB Memory,VGA/LCD and Ethernet

PCM-9370 Introduction

Advantech’s new PCM-9370F is a 3.5" SBC with an on-board, embedded Transmeta Crusoe processor. Other on-board features include VGA/LCD, a 64 MB Compact Flash Card socket, and 10/ 100 Mbps Ethernet. This board is a feature-packed, 586-level, hassle-free solution for space critical applications.

Worry-free, fanless High Performance SBC is Here
With this board, system engineers will now be able to upgrade their Pentium systems to Pentium III level without as many additional worries, partially because a Transmeta Crusoe processor is mounted directly on board. Mounting CPUs and 64 MB directly on board eases the configuration and installation process because there is no need to set any jumpers for speed or voltage differences between various CPUs. In addition to this ease of configuration, this CPU has been specially designed to work well in environments with temperatures of up to 60 C (140 F) without need of a fan. Eliminating the CPU fan from a system significantly reduces MTBF worries. This board also provides an optional Audio/TV-out module (PCM-231).

Lower power consumption and LongRun Technology
PCM-9370F power consumption is only 10.7 W with Crusoe chip support and LongRun TM Technology. This controls power consumption by dynamically adjusting the processor clock speed and voltage in response to the processor requirements of the current workload. This reduces overall power consumption.
