Eurotech presents the COM-1440, a high speed USB 2.0 board designed to interface different USB devices. This module will increase the application coverage with the introduction of two high power USB ports that allow direct powering of connected devices. Two of the four downstream ports support 500mA drive and two ports can supply up to 2A. These switches allow powering of USB devices through the cable simplifying power supply design of the system. Ideal applications for the COM-1440 board include various removable or fixed mass storage media, USB memory keys, printers, cameras, CD drives etc. Devices such as a high speed USB 2,5" hard drive The USB header pin outs follow the general standard scheme of USB ports.

Eurotech develop and market complete embedded solutions: Single Board Computers and add-on modules compliant with the PC/104, PC/104-Plus and CompactPCI market standards. 
Innovative technology and specific know-how allow Eurotech to provide OEM products for system integrators (ASES: Application-Specific Embedded Systems). Based on a PCx86 open architecture, these products guarantee a very short time-to-market by consistently reducing the interval between the starting idea and the finished product. Besides, they take in charge the whole problem of device implementation, leaving the integrator free to concentrate on the main project. 
PC architecture allows to select the processor’s performance (ranging from 386 to Pentium III) and to install any of the operating systems available on the market (Windows XP Embedded, CE-Net, Linux, QNX, VxWorks, DOS). Eurotech provides the CPU modules and the related Board Support Packages (BSP); the add-on modules come with device drivers that speed up the writing of the application software. 
Eurotech’s products are built using off-the–shelf components (COTS); nevertheless, they can be supplied in a rugged version, with features like tropicalization, extended temperature range, vibration resistance and so on, which ensure high reliability in harsh environments. 
Eurotech provides interesting applications in the field of intelligent transportation (ITS). We offer OEM solutions for vehicle location (AVL) and vehicle management (AVM), terminals for client assistance and information, while security is ensured by digital event recording (DVR). Specific interfaces can be implemented according to our customer’s requirements, including GPS/DGPS location devices, GSM/GPRS (vehicle WAN) and Wi-Fi 802.11a,b,g (vehicle LAN) radio communications, up to Bluetooth for peripheral devices.
