The complete chipset consists of the Mark CoreFusion processor including CPU and Twister-T North Bridge in a single package, and a VT82C686B South Bridge. The onboard TTL LCD interface supports TFT LCD as well as STN/DSTN LCD modules. Besides, the embedded platform offers full legacy support through ISA (Industry Standard Architecture) and provides usability of up to four COM ports, four USB 1.1a ports, and one PC/104 expansion interface.

Integrating the S3 Graphics ProSavage4 graphics core, the SBC84602 boasts a video capture port and display resolutions of up to 1600 x 1200 pixels. The flexible display function is supported by integrated Graphics controller which allows users to configure both CRT and TTL LCD or CRT and LVDS LCD as simultaneous mode. In addition to regular 4:3 resolutions like 640 x 480, 800 x 600, 1024 x 768, 1280 x 1024 and 1600 x 1200, the integrated Graphics controller can also support special resolutions like 1366 x 768 for 16:9 LCD, 640 x 240 half VGA and 320 x 240 quarter VGA.

“AXIOMTEK is dedicated to developing reliable embedded products continually. We design, manufacture, and customize single board computers and barebone in this field. The SBC84602 is a fanless, RoHS compliant, high performance but low power, and cost effective solution for plenty of embedded markets,” said Joseph Chou, Product Manager of Embedded Computing Division. “Featuring such smaller footprint, unique small size LCD support, and full legacy support, the SBC84602 betters embedded solutions with unparalleled connectivity.”

The 3.5-inch embedded board features a low power design and supports one 144-pin SODIMM system memory up to 512 MB. Furthermore, the SBC84602 is equipped with rich I/O features including four USB 1.1a ports, four +5V or +12V powered COM ports (one with RS-232/422/485 auto-flow control, three with RS-232), dual Fast Ethernet (optional in Gigabit), SMBus for battery monitoring, CompactFlash type II with DMA mode, AC’97 Codec Audio with amplify, one PATA-100 and one PC/104 interface. With the above I/O features, the SBC84602 becomes the ideal platform for various embedded applications; such as, HMI, gaming machine, transaction terminal, traditional industrial automation, and more.

The product is going to be available around the middle of August, 2007. For more information or pricing, please contact your territory sales representative or
