Reliable PC/104-Plus CPUs Feature Choice of Dual Ethernet Interfaces or Eight USB 2.0 Ports with Extended Temperature Operation of -40/+85C 
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – November 20, 2007 - Parvus Corporation today unveiled the CPU-1472 and CPU-1474, two PC/104-Plus form-factor single board computers (SBCs) featuring the low-power Intel® Celeron® M 1GHz processor and Intel® i855GME chipset in a rugged board design suited for mobile, high vibration, and extreme temperature embedded systems applications. 
Delivering exceptional computational performance and data communication capabilities for harsh environments (i.e. unmanned vehicles, aircraft, trains, buses), the CPU-1472/74 cards operate without any active cooling (fanless) over standard (0 to +60°C) and extended (-40 to +85°C) operating temperature ranges. Like other Parvus/Eurotech CPU modules, system DRAM is soldered onboard to enhance shock/vibration resistance and each card is individually thermally qualified to ensure high reliability. A structural heat spreader plate is integrated on top of each CPU module to dissipate heat from critical components.  
The CPU-1474 features dual Local Area Network (LAN) controllers (Gigabit and Fast Ethernet) and four USB 2.0 ports, along with standard PC peripherals and I/O interfaces, including dual serial ports, TFT/LVDS interfaces, AC97 audio interface, keyboard and mouse ports, and IDE controller. The CPU-1472 is similar but provides a total of 8 USB 2.0 ports and a single 10/100 Ethernet controller.  
These x86 CPU modules are compatible with Linux, Windows XP Embedded, and other popular operating systems. Hardware development kits (DTKs) and accessories are available, as well as professional services for systems engineering of rugged box-level solutions tailored to customer requirements.
