AXIOMTEK Launches EP812 EPIC Single Board Computer

AXIOMTEK, an Associate Member of the Intel Communications Alliance (ICA), is pleased to launch a new low power EPIC form factor SBC, the EP812, which supports Socket 478 for Intel(R) Pentium(R) M and Intel(R) Celeron(R) M processors running at 400MHz FSB speeds for convenient logistic and better CPU performance. Besides, it offers alternatives of low voltage Intel(R) Pentium(R) M and ultra low voltage Intel(R) Celeron(R) M processors as well. Available in a choice of configurations and options, the SBC offers developers a robust and reliable platform to build on with the added benefit of being able to realize faster times to market for new products.

The EP812 features a DVI-I display function which is a popular display solution for both DVI and CRT signal output for dual external display application such as Digital Signage Appliance (DSA). For wireless terminal applications, it supports Mini PCI Type III expansion for off-the-shelf modules in the market. This embedded board is particularly suitable for multimedia solution which requires more effective computing power; such as home advertisements, public information, and entertainment and so on.

EPIC standard allows PC-style connectors for I/O’s instead of the pin-headers common on PC/104 designs, and it also tends to increase reliability, particularly in environments that are prone to extreme shock and vibration. The EP812 delivers the various application oriented solution as PC-based embedded platform. The ideal cost effective compact size single board computer easily works with regular laptop Intel(R) Pentium(R) M and Celeron(R) M CPU’s. This helps to lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) when compared to other small form factor SBC’s with onboard low power CPU supported only, and furthermore, the EP812 offers a CPU option with an ultra low voltage onboard 1GHz Intel(R) Celeron(R) M processor.

“The EP812 continues to deliver the various application oriented solution as PC-based embedded platform like DSA. It continues to strengthen our appeal to developers as they are able to come to one manufacturer for all embedded requirements,” said Joseph Chou, Product Manager of Embedded Computing Division. “Moreover, with Intel IPD’s commitment, the EP812 is guaranteed to be shipped under a long term supplying trend.

This function-rich board provided DualView for both LVDS LCD and CRT displays, dual Gigabit Ethernet for network communication, four USB 2.0 ports for high speed peripherals, and Digital I/O for industrial control applications. Other rich I/O features, which include Dual LAN (10/100/1000Mbps), CompactFlashTM, and AC’97 Codec Audio, maximize customer’s business opportunities to adopt the board into various applications.

The EP812 will be the essence of your high performance embedded system, and this RoHS compliant product will be available around the end of December 2006. For more information or pricing, please contact your territory sales representative or
