PCI-BUS 486 Mini Biscuit PC with VGA/LAN

CPC-2347 Introduction

Advantech’s new Card-PC, the CPC-2347, is truly an all-in-one 486 processor-based single board computer. It comes equipped with 32 MB DRAM, an SVGA interface which supports CRT monitors with up to 4MB display memory, a 10/100 base-T Ethernet interface and a CompactFlash™ solid state disk socket. In addition, it is equipped with two RS-232 serial ports, one bi-directional printer port supporting SPP, ECP and EPP modes, an IDE HDD interface and floppy disk controller, as well as a PCI interface for functional expansion. With its industrial grade reliability, the CPC-2347 can operate continuously at temperatures up to 140?F (60?C). This compact unit offers all these functions within the space of a 2.5” hard disk drive (68 mm x 100 mm). The numerous features provide an ideal price/performance solution for high-end commercial and industrial applications where stability and reliability are essential.

The Card-PC CPC-2347’s power can be supplied through the SO DIMM socket or an on-board power connector; thus, the CPC-2347 can be embedded into the user’s system board or used as a single board application. The PCI bus, HDD, FDD and parallel interfaces are all connected with the user’s system board by the SO DIMM socket. This form factor has the benefits of easy maintenance, the ability to replace a damaged card within 30 seconds, and also allows easy upgrades from 486 to Pentium?level without ever changing the user’s system board.

The CPC-2347 provides many useful functions in a tiny card, and when needed, there is a small connector for other extension modules, such as the CPC-2520 VGA/LCD module. It provides the flexibility to accommodate user’s different application needs.
