The ALUDRA N270 processor board provides all the benefits of Intel's new Atom LPIA architecture in an EBX form factor.
Using Intel's Hi-K 45nm technology the Intel N270 processor delivers the benefits of Intel's x86 architecture with exceptional performance per-watt. The processor is matched with an Intel 945GSE graphics and memory controller and Intel ICH7-M IO controller hub. The ALUDRA offers high performance x86 compatibility in a fanless design that requires only a fraction of the power previously needed for comparable systems.
A full range of on board peripherals are provided including 6 x USB 2.0 ports, VGA, LVDS, serial digital video, TV-Out, Audio, 3 x RS2332, RS422/485, 2 x Ethernet, GPIO, IDE, 2 x SATA. Expansion requirements are well covered by a combination of PC/104 (ISA), PC/104+ (PCI) and 2 x PCIe MiniCard sockets, so interfacing to real-world I/O or the latest wireless technology is easy.
Requiring 20W of power running at 1.6GHz the ALUDRA has all the functionality and connectivity previously associated with much more power-hungry systems. The ALUDRA comes with up to 2GB of DDR2 RAM. Further solid state Flash expansion is available via a CompactFlash socket.
ALUDRA is compatible with all major desktop operating systems and is also available with pre-installed ready to run embedded operating systems including Windows XP Embedded and Fedora Linux.
