Fastwel to Introduce CPC316 – a New PC/104-Plus Vortex86DX3 based CPU Module


Fastwel has announced the release of a new module based on the Vortex86DX3 processor for creating embedded computers in the PC/104-Plus format.

This form factor is appeared through adding a 120-pin PCI connector to the top part of the board. The application of the PCI bus made it possible to expand the functionality of the systems due to PCI compatible functions such as video, Ethernet and others. In this case, the PC/104 Plus boards are fully compatible with all the devices of PC/104 standard via the ISA bus.

CPC316 is equipped with Vortex86DX3 800 MHz processor of X86 architecture, 2GB of soldered DDR3 RAM, video with a resolution of 1280x1024, 32 bits per pixel; 8GB NAND Flash Drive, 2 LAN ports 10/100 Mbps and 10/100/1000 Mbps; 4 x COM ports (2 x RS232 and RS485 for each), a universal 48-channel configurable I/O port for digital signals and a watchdog timer.

The board is designed for operation in severe conditions and is capable of functioning in the temperature range from -40 to + 85 °C, and features shock and vibration resistance. The module’s main areas of application include onboard computers, signal acquisition and processing in industrial automation systems, as well as in mission critical and special-purpose applications.
