(TAIPEI) - COMMELL Systems Corporation announces
the Intel FSB800 MHz Pentium 4 industrial PICMG multiple PCI/ISA
platform, the FS-978
series. Based on Intel latest Pentium 4 technology, the FS-978
features the 800 MHz FSB on CPU and dual channel DDR400 SDRAM, offers the 6.4
GBps of data transfer bandwidth on both of CPU host bus and system memory bus.
With these features, the FS-978
offers the advanced computing capacity and performance for the industrial
multiple PCI/ISA platforms and solutions.
spite of the features of come from Intel Pentium 4 technology, the FS-978
also provides the other advantages to meet the fields of industrial
applications. The mini-AGP interface offers the expansibility for multiple
type of display, or 4x / 8xAGP VGA modules; the Intel PRO/1000 GbE interface
offers the powerful network capacity; and the onboard dual channel
Ultra160/320 SCSI interface also provides the all-in-one solution for the
industrial PC applications.
on Intel Springdale chipset, including Intel 82865G GMCH and 82801EB ICH5, the
FS-978 features the
800 MHz FSB on CPU host bus and dual channel DDR400 SDRAM on system memory
bus, and offers the 6.4 GBps of data transfer bandwidth. The Intel
Pentium 4 Processor with HT Technology Extreme Edition runs at 3.20 GHz
with an advanced 800 MHz system bus, the whopping 2MB of L3 cache and built-in
Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology). The COMMELL FS-978
with Intel Pentium 4 Processor delivers the reliable performance for
industrial computing platform that needs the powerful processing capacity to
handle their advanced applications.
Embedded VGA Expansive Interface
meet the demand on video application, the FS-978
provides the onboard mini-AGP socket to support the multiple types of display
devices, including the DVI, LVDS, and S/HDTV. The FS-978
onboard mini-AGP interface also supports the 4x or 8x AGP based expansive VGA
modules, such as COMMELL MA-ATI-M10,
the 8xAGP mini-AGP VGA module with ATI M10 VGA chipset and onboard 64 MB of
independent video memory, to provide the advanced video and image processing
capacity for the applications including video on demand (VoD), digital video
recorder ( DVR), broadcasting (DVB), streaming, surveillance, compression,
interaction servers and workstations.
Ethernet Networking Solution
FS-978 offers the
Intel PRO/1000 GbE interface as the primary Ethernet port with Intel 865G GMCH
chipset and CSA Intel 82547EI controller, and optional Intel
PRO/100+ Fast Ethernet interface as the
secondary Ethernet port with Intel ICH5 chipset and onboard Intel 82562ET Phy.
The dual Ethernet ports provide the solution for WAN/LAN, external/internal
multiple Ethernet application.
Dual Channel Ultra160/320 SCSI Platform
the onboard PCI LSI 53C1030 controller, the FS-978
offers the dual channel Ultra320 SCSI interface with dual
68-pin D-sub connectors and one 50-pin header connector. The onboard SCSI
interface makes the FS-978
based IPC platform provides the expansive slot-saving solution for the
application need SCSI based devices, such as the CTI (Computer Telecom
Integration) server and workstation.
ATA and Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Interface
on Intel ICH5 chipset, the FS-978 offers
the Serial ATA and Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface. The serial ATA provides
the 150 MBytes/second, and the Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface
offers the 480 Mbit/second of data transfer
bandwidth. Both of them support hot-swappable function for the storage
OS Compatibility and Solid State Flash Disk Interface
FS-978 is compatible with popular embedded OS including Microsoft WinCE, WinCE.NET,
Embedded NT, XP Embedded (XPE), Embedded Linux, QNX, VxWorks and others. The onboard
IDE-based, bootable and driver free CompactFlash flash disk interface also
offers the reliable solid state disk for high reliability and disk free
industrial embedded application.
