Eurotech has been working with Intel Corporation as an early adopter of the Low Power Intel Architecture (LPIA). As a result of this work Eurotech Ltd will be offering the ISIS and PROTEUS products later this year.
ISIS is a PC/104+ single board computer and PROTEUS is available as a standalone or COM-Express module. Both harness the low power capabilities of the Intel Atom next generation chipset but also offer x86 compatibility in a fan-less design. Both the ISIS and the PROTEUS offer the level of functionality and performance you would traditionally expect from a high performance x86 board, but at reduced power consumption of less than 5 watts.
A key feature of the ISIS and the PROTEUS is their full compatibility with a wide range of operating systems that include Windows Vista, Windows CE 6.0, Windows XP and Linux.
Having all this performance in such a small package is a truly unique offering that make them ideally suitable for applications such as infotainment, interactive kiosks, access control, HMI, medical and industrial control.
Using Intels Hi-K 45nm technology the Intel Atom processor Z5XX series deliver the benefits of Intel architecture for small form factor boards with robust performance-per-watt in an ultra-small package.
Each processor is matched with an Intel System Controller Hub (SCH) US15W which is a highly-integrated device with a graphics memory controller hub and I/O controller hub combined into one small 22x22 mm package.
The ISIS and PROTEUS will be available later this year
