ISA96 A2/103 (8HP-Version)

As successor of the renowned CPU boards from the M4 series, Janich & Klass has developed the industrial high-performance processor card ISA96 A2/103. The core of this 3U/8HP board is the CPU Module A2 with firmly soldered processor, DDR3 main memory, and processor power supply.

The CPU Module bases on Intel's Ultra-Mobile Platform "Pineview" with the "Atom" processors N455, D425, and D525, and also the I/O-Controller "ICH8". The processors are available in different clock rates, with 1.6GHz or 1.8GHz. The firmly soldered DDR3 main memory is equipped with 1GByte, or 2GByte. On demand, the main memory size can be doubled, by adding an SODIMM module.

Further to the standard PC interfaces, the ISA96 A2/103 features a Gigabit-Ethernet controller, three SATA interfaces, up to six USB 2.0 interfaces, and an Intel GMA3150 Graphic Controller with Flat-Panel interface. A hardware monitor, a watchdog, and a FlashDisk complete the equipment of this industrial processor card.

Great attention was attached to the long-term availability of the card: Its components originate from the specific embedded product lines of the relative manufacturers.
