Portwell Launches WADE-8046, WADE-8065 Mini-ITX Embedded Systems Boards

American Portwell Technology, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Portwell, Inc., a world-leading innovator in the embedded computing market and a member of the Intel® Embedded and Communications Alliance (Intel ECA), announces WADE-8046 and WADE-8065, two additions to its portfolio of Intel 945GME chipset-based Mini-ITX embedded systems boards. WADE-8046 and WADE-8065 utilize a wide selection of Intel mobile CPUs including Core(tm) 2 Duo, Core Duo, Core Solo and Celeron® M to provide high performance and low power consumption solutions in applications such as medical, gaming, lottery machines, digital signage, kiosk/POS, industrial automation, industrial control, security and communications appliances.

Triple Display
“WADE-8046, featuring multi-display function and low power consumption, is a Mini-ITX embedded board with two 200-pin DIMMs to support dual channel DDR2 SO-DIMM up to 4 GB, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, one expansion PCI-Express x1 slot and one Mini PCI Express socket,” explains Jimmy Chang, American Portwell Technology’s product marketing manager. “Not only can it maximize Intel Celeron up to mobile Core 2 Duo processor technology, but it also includes the facility to provide triple display output: dual display via VGA/ LVDS/DVI and a third display via a PCI-Express x1 graphic card. WADE-8046 uses CompactFlash®, IDE and SATA to handle storage and includes four COM ports and eight USB ports for external connectivity. Both WADE-8046 and WADE-8065 support a variety of operating systems including Microsoft® Windows® XP Embedded, Windows XP, Windows Vista®, Windows CE and Linux®,” Chang adds.

“The new WADE-8065 is a network bandwidth-enriched solution with a low power consumption mobile processor that not only provides more than adequate computing muscle but also eliminates potential heat issues. WADE-8065 shares many features with WADE-8046 such as DDR2 memory and CompactFlash, IDE and SATA for storage but offers three Gigabit Ethernet ports-to provide the wide bandwidth necessary for communications or network related applications-two COM ports and six USB ports and expansion via one PCI slot,” confirms Chang. “Dual video outputs are available via VGA/LVDS, VGA/DVI and LVDS/DVI, and supported by an integrated Intel GMA 950 Graphics Media Accelerator to enhance graphic performance.”

Optimized Solutions with Computing Performance, Network Bandwidth, Multiple Displays and Low Power Consumption
According to Frank Shen, American Portwell Technology’s product marketing director, the new additions to the company’s Mini-ITX portfolio provide customers with great computing performance, and network bandwidth enriched and low power consumption solutions. “Our WADE-8046 is a high performance embedded board that can provide triple display for a diversity of solutions in a wide variety of applications,” says Shen. “Similarly, WADE-8065′s three Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports provide the wide bandwidth necessary for communications and network related applications and is the preferred choice where the price/performance ratio is a criterion. Our customers also gain peace of mind from the long life cycle support inherent with every Portwell product.”
