Parvus to showcase floppy disk size embedded computer that is rugged and powerful enough for defense, aviation, and other demanding applications 
 
SAN DIEGO, CA - December 15, 2003 - Parvus® Corporation displayed its new SpacePC® 4320 embedded computer at the Military and Aerospace Electronics West 2003 show (Booth #606) Dec 2-3 at the San Diego Concourse. 
 
Based on the Pentium® MMX class AMD Geode™ GX1 CPU, the 4320 Series is a low-power PC/104-Plus single board computer (SBC) ideal for space-constrained applications requiring the performance of the x86 Intel architecture, yet in a compact, fanless format - roughly the size of a floppy disk (3.550” x 3.775”).  
 
FEATURES 
Running at clock speeds of 266MHz and equipped with 128MB of soldered SDRAM, the 4320 Series provides embedded systems designers in aviation, defense, transportation, and industrial applications with a tightly integrated computer, attractively priced at $372/per unit in volume orders of 100+ units. It is available in both standard (0ºC to +60ºC) and extended (-40ºC to +85ºC) temperature rated versions. 
 
This space-saving PC/104-Plus module couples all of the standard interfaces of a desktop PC with support for both Windows® and Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS), such as Linux®, QNX® and VxWorks®. Integrated peripheral controllers include SVGA (resolution up to 1280x1024 pixels), two serial ports, one parallel port, one Fast Ethernet controller, one E-IDE interface, keyboard, mouse, USB port, and AC7 sound port. The BIOS is stored in a 1MB EPROM, which comes pre-loaded with a ROM-DOS™ kernel to facilitate rapid implementation.
