WADE-8056 simplified embedded system board has smaller footprint

2007-02-07  Taipei,Taiwan
Portwell Inc., a world-leading innovator in the Industrial PC (IPC) market and a member of the Intel® Communications Alliance, has launched its new WADE-8056 in response to market demand for a simplified embedded system board (ESB) that combines robust computing power, a smaller footprint and lower power consumption with increased product longevity. The WADE-8056 Mini-ITX ESB utilizes the latest Intel® Q965 and ICH8DO chipset to support Intel® Core™ 2 Duo and Pentium® 4/Celeron® D processors. Its features include dual display, single GbE LAN port, PCI and mini-PCI expansion slots, four SATA ports, four COM ports, RAID (0,1,5,10) and six USB 2.0 ports in a compact 170 mm x 170 mm (6.69˝ x 6.69˝) form factor that weighs a mere 0.43 kg (0.94 lbs). Available now, WADE-8056 Mini-ITX ESB is the ideal solution for applications in medical equipment, storage device control, gaming machines, digital signage, kiosks, semiconductor equipment and automation control equipment.

Robust computing power and reliability

"With its implementation of Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT), the new WADE-8056 ESB offers robust computing power and reliability for embedded applications in which the IT manager needs to discover, heal or protect the operation and customers who are seeking increased computing, lower power consumption and a longer product lifespan," says Don Chang, President of Vertical Market Service Business Unit, Portwell, Inc.

"The dual video outputs of WADE-8056 can drive two displays simultaneously at maximum resolution of 2048 x 1536 or 1920 x 1080 for HDTV" adds Don.

Keeping the size and the operating costs down

"The compact design of WADE-8056 Mini-ITX form factor does more than just keep the size down, it also helps reduce energy consumption," explains Victor Liao, product manager of Advanced Product Research Dept.. "This means that companies with 24/7 operating applications can actually save money."

"While we kept one eye on current needs, we also kept the other on future requirements," continues Victor. "For example, the expansion options are PCI and Mini-PCI slots, providing the high flexibility necessary for functional growth."

Intel Q965 GMCH and Watchdog timer

Mini-ITX ESB of WADE-8056 supports Intel® Core™ 2 Duo and Pentium® 4/Celeron® D processors, adopts Intel® Q965 chipset, includes GPIO and Watchdog timer. "This is the latest chipset and supports the Intel® Core 2 Duo processor, which has speeds of up to 1066 MHz," explains Victor. "The Q965 chipset is also embedded with the fourth generation Intel integrated graphics controller and a Graphics Media Accelerator 3000 that supports widescreen LCD displays and accelerated DirectX 9.0c," Victor adds.
