PORTWELL ANNOUNCES COMPACT 3.5˝ LOW-POWER
Fanless embedded system board
New ESB based on Ultra Low Voltage Intel® Celeron® M Processor

 

FREMONT, CALIF. - July 25, 2007 -- American Portwell Technology, Inc., a member of the Intel® Communications Alliance (ICA), announces its new PEB-2731VLA, a compact (3.5˝), cost-effective, low power embedded system board (ESB) that provides fanless operation. Based on the Ultra Low Voltage Intel Celeron® M 600 MHz processor package, Portwell’s PEB-2731VLA uses Intel’s 825GM and ICH4 chipset/core logic. Its interface supports both LAN and audio, as well as VGA, LVDS and DVO to fulfill common graphic needs.
The new PEB-2731VLA also includes a Mini-PCI interface for expansion such as Bluetooth or WiFi. A gold finger running along the short edge of the embedded system board accommodates up to four PCI devices to increase the platform’s expansion capabilities. The unit requires a mere +12V DC power input, which makes it an economical choice for almost every type of embedded application.
Portwell’s new PEB-2731VLA compact, low power, fanless ESB is the ideal solution for applications such as embedded gaming control, medical devices, in-vehicle infotainment (Car PC), and simplified network appliances or devices.

Compact Form Factor and Low Power Consumption
“The PEB-2731VLA is a welcome new addition to Portwell’s family of compact, cost-effective devices,” says Jack Lam, American Portwell Technology’s senior product marketing manager. “We designed the PEB-2731VLA’s 3.5-inch compact computing engine using the Ultra Low Voltage Intel® Celeron® M 600 MHz processor so that it is a low power and low heat device that can function as a fanless configuration and can even be battery operated.”


Long-life Cycle and Future-Proof
Frank Shen, American Portwell Technology’s product marketing director, believes that the flexibility of functional expansion provided by the gold finger and Mini-PCI bus further cements the PEB-2731VLA as a cost-effective solution for embedded applications.
“Not only that,” explains Shen, “but the PEB-2731VLA is also another practical example of Portwell’s commitment to providing products with a long life-cycle support. The Intel® 852GM chipset that resides at the core of this device is a market-proven and reliable architecture and part of Intel’s own embedded roadmap, so our customers can be confident that the new PEB-2731VLA is one hundred percent future-proof.”
