IBASE Creates FWA7304 Security Appliance with VIA CN700 Chipset

IBASE Technology, a leader in embedded computing, delivers a cost effective network security appliance based on the latest VIA CN700 chipset architecture. FWA7304 is a RoHS-compliant security device that provides scalable Ethernet performance in a totally fanless operation.

Fanless / Stable Operation
FWA7304 comes with VIA Eden-V4 processors with speeds of 400MHz or 1GHz using a 400MHz front size bus and a DDR2 SO-DIMM socket accommodating up to 1GB memory, offering 18-20% increased network performance levels when compared with VIA Eden-based appliances. The unit does not require any active cooling, offering much higher reliability and longer life span compared with existing network security platforms.

Designed for the Small-Medium Business (SMB) market, FWA7304 supports a LAN bypass function that helps ensure all network traffic passing through the device in the event of power failure. The unit supports flexible data storage with a Compact Flash socket and a 2.5-inch hard disk drive. The onboard Mini PCI slot offers an upgrade path for additional products like wireless modules.
