SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH - FEBRUARY 21, 2002 - parvus Corporation today announced the release of its Compact Flash & IDE Adapter module, a versatile PC/104 board that serves as both a (1) carrier for a Compact Flash disk drive and a (2) controller for up to two IDE devices, such as hard disk or CD-ROM drives.  

 
The board gives a PC/104-based system a supplemental IDE (Intelligent Drive Electronics) controller that is configurable as either a primary or secondary controller to the CPU.  

 
The board supports adding a Compact Flash memory card drive through an onboard Compact Flash socket, which can be jumpered for Master or Slave settings. A 2.5" hard drive can be connected via its standard 44-pin 2mm connector. Because of the 16-bit PC/104 bus design, the board does not require a cable connection from a CPU board.  

 
APPLICATIONS  
The board can be used in a variety of rugged, mobile computing and embedded systems applications where program and data storage is desired. parvus products are commonly found in microcomputing devices used in the avionics/aerospace, defense, factory automation, light industrial, medical, telecom and transportation fields.
