Completely revised industrial PCs in PC/104-Plus format offers Luterbach/Swiss-based DIGITAL-LOGIC with the boards “MICROSPACE Module” MSMP3SEG and MSMP5SEG. The compact single board computers are based on a highly integrated 300MHz to 700MHz fast smartCoreP3 CPU module with Pentium III processor or a smartCoreP5 CPU module with Pentium MMX and a performance of 166MHz to 266MHz. Both boards are remarkable for their extensive storage capabilities like a 32MB to 256MB SDRAM expandable main memory and a 256KB large L2 cache, as well as an extended range of interfaces. These include ports for PS/2 keyboard and mouse, IDE hard disk, floppy disk, and printer. In addition, the boards contain two USB V1.1 interfaces and four serial ports COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4.  
Further technical features are a watchdog, support for EEPROM and for an external IrDA port. The PC/104-Plus boards are equipped with an 10/100Base-T Ethernet controller to allow the connection to TCP/IP-based LAN or the Internet. Booting from LAN is carried out via the Intel boot agent. An ATI RAGE Mobility M1 Video controller with integrated 8MB video memory provides optimal graphics support. This high-performance graphics accelerator controls the latest LCD technology using a 24-Bit TFT LCD interface (3V/5V). It achieves SXGA resolutions of up to 1280 x 1024 pixel and a maximum colour depth of 256bit. With this the CPU boards are well equipped to support even state-of-the-art 2D, 3D and DVD performance and they are compatible to DirectX 6 and OpenGL. Two equal or two different images can be displayed with a combination of LVDS plus CRT and accordingly LVDS plus DVI or TV. A long-term availability is guaranteed.  
These modules are the worldwide only PC/104-Plus Pentium III computers with this broad range of interfaces including four serial ports that will also be offered in a version without graphics. 
The boards runs under Windows 98/2k/XP/CE/NT and other familiar operating systems, such as Linux, QNX and RTXDOS. They operate with a 5V/2.5A power supply in the standard temperature range of –25°C to +50°C. On request the products are available for an extended temperature range of –40°C to +70°C. A MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) value of more than 200,000 hours confirms the high level of reliability and availability of the PC/104-Plus boards.  
The ingenious design with the innovative cooling concept with passive or active cooling and the low-power consumption allow its use in a wide range of sophisticated applications where cost, robustness and scalability play an important role. For example applications in the fields of navigation, telecommunication, computer periphery, medical and measurement technologies, aviation and aerospace, automotive electronics and in Internet terminals.
