ACROSSER Announces AR-B8020 PC/104+ Single Board Computer

ACROSSER Technology proudly presents the AR-B8020, a low power PC/104+ Single Board Computer. Many Industrial Automation (IA) systems need a low cost, stable x86 based PC/104+ single board computer. However, many of the original low end x86 CPU processors are currently being phased out; for example, CPU’s such as the ALi 6117C, STPC ATLAS and SiS Vortex86 are becoming scarcely, if at all, available. Although these distinguished products had a long life cycle, these CPU’s are now End of Life (EOL).

ACROSSER AR-B8020 PC/104+ Single Board ComputerDue to the recent EOL announcement on the above listed CPU’s, ACROSSER has developed the AR-B8020 to meet the demands of those still in need of these low power devices. The RDC is a reliable, long-life CPU that not only meets our customers’ performance requirements, but also their low cost targets. For these reasons, Acrosser choose the RDC 8610 to be the core of the AR-B8020. AR-B8020 is a Single chip solution (CPU and Chipsets), providing quality performance in a low cost format. Also the small PC/104+ form factor facilitates integration into compact environments.
