Catalyst LP

Low Power, High performance solution based on
Intel® Atom™ n450 and D510 processors

High Performance, Dual Core Module with Latest
Intel® Atom™ Technology

The Catalyst LP delivers the latest technologies in the Intel Atom platform in the popular Catalyst form factor. The Catalyst LP is based on the Intel Atom N450 and D510 processors with both single-core and dual-core capabilities and Intel ICH8M companion chip. This latest chipset from Intel offers a graphics engine up to 400MHz, high-speed I/O, and much more. Through Eurotech's design expertise, the Catalyst LP leverages these capabilities to offer a feature-dense embedded solution in the same, fanless 67 x 100 mm form factor that makes our Catalyst product so powerful.

The Catalyst LP is suited for a range of target applications. It offers high-performance graphics for applications requiring high-end 2-D and 3-D visualization with high-resolution graphics capabilities, including digital signage. In addition, high bandwidth I/O capability including PCIe, and data storage interfaces like SATA make the Catalyst LP ideal for applications requiring extensive data retrieval and processing such as those in the industrial, medical, gaming, human-machine interface, and other markets. The small, fanless design makes it also suited for battery-operated, hand-held devices.

With a common footprint, the Catalyst LP system is easily scalable and allows existing Catalyst Module customers to migrate to the new Intel Atom N450 or D510 processors with minimal effort.

The Catalyst LP supports Windows CE 6.0, Windows Embedded Standard, and Wind River Linux 3. The Everyware™ Software Framework, a powerful Java-based IDE environment will also be available.
