Eurotech's Catalyst leverages the advantages of this Intel technology to provide an ideal Linux solution for high performance, low power applications such as the ruggedized handheld, multimedia, medical, point of service, and industrial designs. Linux will boot from Flash or disk.  Catalyst maintains a small form factor and offers comprehensive I/O and multimedia capabilities including high definition graphics while maximizing the MIPS to mW ratio and consuming less than 5W of power per system. The two-card design gives customers flexibility with the adapter board, starting either with a standard version or custom design (by Eurotech or a third party) to meet unique application requirements while reducing time-to-market.

Build low power, fanless Linux solutions based on the latest Intel technology using the Catalyst module.
