Microcomputer Systems, Inc. introduces a new series of processor cards offering a variety of capabilities as follows.  
The MSI-6270 (powered by VIA Mark CoreFusion 533MHz processor) is a high performance unit with integrated ProSavage4 SA graphics controller, the powerful embedded x86 platform for Windows XP Embedded, WEPOS, and embedded Linux applications. The card provides a VT82C686B PCI-ISA South Bridge and Realtek RTL8100B 10/100 Fast Ethernet Controller. The processor integrates VIA’s high-performance ProSavage4 3D / 2D graphics controller, LCD and Flat Panel display interfaces, with further superior performance between the CPU, DRAM and PCI bus with pipelined, burst, and concurrent operation. The South Bridge is PC98 / PC99 compliant with integrated UltraDMA-66 / 33 IDE, 2 (or 3) USB (1.1) ports, Super-I/O functions (floppy disk drive interface and serial / parallel ports), and AC-97 link supporting digital audio functions. 
The MSI-6154 ( powered by DM&P 300MHz Vortex86SX) offers high performance, fully static 32-bit x86 processor for DOS, DR-DOS, X-DOS, free DOS, X-Linux, Embedded Linux and Windows CE 5.0 / 6.0 applications. The card provides a XGI Volari Z9s 2D graphics controller and integrates 32KB write through direct map L1 cache, PCI Rev. 2.1 32-bit bus interface at 33 MHz, SDRAM, DDR2, ROM controller, IPC (Internal Peripheral Controllers with DMA and interrupt timer/counter included), Fast Ethernet MAC (10/100Mbps Ethernet & NE2000 compatible), Flash BIOS (256KB), (4) USB 2.0 Hosts and (2) IDE controllers (UltraDMA-100/ 66 / 33) , Super-I/O functions (GPIO and serial / parallel ports) into a System-on-Chip (SoC) design. 
The DM&P Vortex86-based 133/166 MHz Series offers numerous choices including onboard RAM, VGA/LCD, digital I/O, LAN, USB, Audio and Flash support. 
The DM&P M6117D-based 40 MHz Series offers numerous choices including onboard RAM, VGA/LCD, digital I/O, LAN, USB and Flash support. The MSI-6050M offers high temperature operation (-40° to 80° C).
