High-performance single board computer based on the SH7727 microprocessor from Hitachi. The HiCO.SH3 has a flexible PC/104 board design and offers power consumption of less than 1.5W and performance of 200MIPS. This makes it a low-power, low-cost solution for industrial control, automotive, high-end consumer and handheld measurement applications.  
The HiCO.SH3 can be used as an off-the-shelf product to form the basis of end-product designs or as a development platform for in-house SH7727 designs. A full-featured starter kit is also available, including pre-installed Windows?CE.NET and the Microsoft Platform Builder development environment.  
The HiCO.SH3 is the only commercially available SBC based on Hitachiís SH7727 SuperH RISC processor, which operates at 160MHz. As well as this processor, with itís on-chip LCD controller and USB Host and Function, the new SBC features 16 to 64Mbytes Flash and 16 to 64Mbytes SDRAM. Other peripherals include a graphic controller for SVGA CRT/LCD, a 10/100 Ethernet interface, audio and serial interfaces and an MMC socket. An SH4 version of the HiCO is available for even higher performance designs.
