Overview


The PFM-540I is a single board computer based on the AMD Geode LX 800 processor. This low power PC/104 module is versatile product featuring four USB 2.0 ports and two Serial ports. The PFM-540I supports CRT and 18/24-bit TTL LCD panels, PC/104 expansion, and supports up to 1GB of DDR SDRAM.

With a DDR memory capacity up to 1GB, the PFM-540I can run the latest operating systems, including Linux, RTAI Real-Time Linux, Microsoft Windows XP/XPE, WinCE, and DOS 6.22. A CompactFlash socket supports Type I/II CompactFlash Cards, which can be used to eliminate the use of fragile hard disks, increasing reliability in harsh environments. Four USB 2.0 ports are available as well as one parallel port (SPP/EPP/ECP modes) and 2 high speed serial ports (RS-232 and RS-232/422/485).

Unlike other high-end PC/104 SBCs, the PFM-540I maintains the true PC/104 standard and does not require “wings”. The PFM-540I gives developers a low power, high performing platform that can fit into the tightest places. PC/104 expansion allows features to be quickly added using any of EMAC’s many PC/104 expansion modules.

With its industrial grade reliability, the PFM-540I can operate continuously at temperatures up to 140º F (60º C) without a fan. A wider temperature version (-40º to 85ºC) is an option. The numerous features provide an ideal price/performance solution for high-end, low cost commercial and industrial applications where stability and reliability (no moving parts) are essential.
