Socket 370 Pentium III/Celeron™ SBC with VGA/LAN/SCSI

PCA-6178 Introduction

Advantech's PCA-6178 supports new Socket 370 Pentium III CPU and deploys Intel 440BX chipset and up to 768 MB SDRAM in three DIMM sockets. The Socket 370 Pentium III CPU supports advanced transfer cache (ATC). Features of the ATC include full speed, 256KB on-die level 2 cache and 8-way set associatively. The PCA-6178 then provides the optimum performance for your system throghput.
