Addition of SpacePC® Line of x86 Processor Boards Positions Parvus as One-Stop Supplier of PC/104 Computer Products 
 
EMBEDDED SYSTEMS CONFERENCE, Boston (BOOTH #315) - September 15, 2003 - Parvus® Corporation of Salt Lake City, Utah today announced the launch of its SpacePC® line of PC/104 and PC/104-Plus CPU boards with a free product evaluation for designers of embedded computer systems. While supplies last, Parvus will provide select embedded PCs to prospective customers on evaluation at no cost by contacting Parvus' sales team at 800-483-3152. 
 
The initial SpacePC product line includes six x86 (Intel®) compatible processor cards, ranging in speed from 40MHz (3x86) to 300MHz (Pentium® class). An ultra low-power 800MHz Pentium(r) III board is also slated for production later this year. Broad software support for these compact (3.550" x 3.775") single board computers (SBC) includes ROM-DOS®, QNX®, Windows 95/98®, Windows NT®, Windows CE®, VxWorks(r), and Linux® drivers. 
 
Standard interfaces include Ethernet, IDE, Floppy, USB, Serial, LCD/CRT, Sound, and PS/2 Keyboard/Mouse. Some models also integrate CAN bus controllers and digital I/O channels. Prices for standard board configurations range from approximately $200 to $500/per board in volume orders of 100+ units. Custom and extended temperature rated versions are also available.  
 
"With the SpacePC CPU line added to the industry's largest variety of PC/104 peripherals, power supplies and packaging solutions, our customers can now look to Parvus for all their off-the-shelf PC/104 products and custom systems integration needs," said Parvus President Tom Hogan.
