The X-board® module has what it takes. Reduced to the maX - Based on the Intel® PXA255 Application Processor it is the most compact embedded solution possible. Designed for low power consumption from the beginning the X-board® module does not require a cooling device at all.
Despite the compact size of a business card it offers all modern interfaces the applications of tomorrow need such as integrated Graphics (LCD), Ethernet, USB and audio.
With up to 64 Mbyte of DRAM and up to 32 Mbyte Flash storage media on board, the X-board® is ready for all applications with support for operating systems like WinCE, Linux, WxWorks or QNX.
Ready for networking the X-board® is equipped with a 10/100Mbit Ethernet port for easy Internet/Intranet access. With 3 USB ports and 2 serial ports all communication devices can be connected to the X-board® without trouble, many devices support USB as standard interfaces today.
The integrated video controller supports LCD digital output. AC97, the digital audio interface is supported on all X-boards® to support an external Codec chip. Onboard Flash storage with build-in bootloader goes up to 64 Mbyte in space and is fully IDE compatible.
Not only is Flash media very robust against shock and vibration, it is also EMI tolerant compared to a hard drive. For further expansion a single channel IDE port is available. For expansion to external hardware the PCI and LPC bus are supported.
The LPC bus is the successor of the outdated ISA bus. LPC is a standard bus on todays motherboards and is widely supported by I/O-chip vendors. To adopt an ISA "glue-logic" to LPC does not take much effort. Despite the compact size with the rich variety of functionality, the X-board® is the most cost-efficient multimedia-ready board in it´s class.
