NS Geode SBC with CPU, Audio, VGA/LCD and Ethernet

PCM-5820 Introduction

Advantech’s new PCM-5820 Rev. B1 is a 3.5" SBC with an on-board, embedded 586 class NS GX1-233, 300 processor. Other on-board features include VGA/LCD, Audio, a Compact Flash Card socket, and 10/100 Mbps Ethernet (PCM-5820 only). This board is a feature-packed, 586-level, hassle-free solution for space critical applications.

Worry-free, fanless Pentium?MMX SBC is Here
With this board, system engineers will now be able to upgrade their 486-based systems to 586-level without as many additional worries, partially because a 586-level NS GX1-233 processor is mounted directly on board. Mounting CPUs 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.
