Eugene, OR VersaLogic Corp. today announced the availability of a new PC/104-Plus  
module designed specifically for higher-end applications requiring extended temperature  
operation. This addition to VersaLogic's new Jaguar line of embedded processors  
is rated for operation over the full -40C to +85C temperature range. The board's  
small size (3.9" x 3.7"), high performance, and wide temperature tolerance, make  
it ideal for a wide range of embedded applications where reliability is critical.  
The extended temperature Jaguar board is based on an Intel Celeron CPU running  
at 350 MHz. Features include 10/100 Ethernet, AGP video/flat panel support, industrial  
I/O, and DiskOnChip support. Transient Voltage Suppressors (TVS) provide ESD  
protection on the I/O ports, reducing the risk of electrostatic damage. Few boards  
in the embedded market offer this kind of protection.  
The Jaguar is appropriate for transportation, automation, medical, aerospace,  
and other high-reliability or harsh environment applications. It is designed  
for embedded systems requiring long-term product availability and extreme reliability.  
System designers choose VersaLogic boards such as the Jaguar for their high-reliability  
features like latching I/O connectors, watchdog timer, voltage sensing reset  
circuit, industrial long-life battery, and self-resetting fuses for keyboard  
and mouse power. The board's versatile BIOS has customizable embedded features  
for OEMs and reconfigurable defaults. Standardized components sourced from multiple  
vendors increase product longevity and reduce problems with obsolescence and  
upgrades. VersaLogic targets a minimum availability of five years for all of  
its embedded OEM products.  
The extended temperature Jaguar board is currently available from stock. Pricing  
is $1097 in OEM quantities. For additional information contact VersaLogic Corp.  
at (800) 824-3163 or info@versalogic.com, or visit the on-line catalog at www.versalogic.com. 
This board will be on display April 23-25 at the Embedded Systems Conference  
in San Francisco's Moscone Convention Center, at VersaLogic's booth #1533.
