SAN DIEGO, CA, March 1, 2011 – ADL Embedded Solutions, a leading provider of embedded industrial single board computers, systems, peripherals and accessories for embedded and stand alone applications, today announced the release of its ADLD25PC single board computer. The ADLD25PC PCI/104-Express SBC features the Intel Atom D525 processor which is designed for a two-chip platform as opposed to the traditional three-chip platforms requiring a CPU, GMCH and ICH. The Atom D525 processor accomplishes this by locally integrating the graphics and memory controller functions of a traditional GMCH. The processor interfaces to the ICH9M-E, which is also used on the ADLGS45PC and provides similar PCI/104-Express I/O bandwidth necessary to enable performance-based rugged, portable and thermally constrained applications. The D525 has an Intel rated Thermal Design Power (TDP) maximum of 10 to 13 Watts and an Intel idle TDP of 4 to 4.8 Watts. TDP refers to how much heat annotated in Watts a thermal solution must be able to dissipate while keeping the processor below its maximum die temperature.
The ADLD25PC is ideal for rugged and mobile applications where power consumption is critical. These jobs include deeply embedded industrial applications, as well as rugged portable applications such as transceivers for tactical communication, GIS mapping, night vision applications, railway and other applications that often use battery-type power sources. Wireless and GPS applications are enabled via the PCIe Mini socket.
“The ADLD25PC continues to leverage the best-in-class extensions by Intel to their expanding Atom CPU line. The deployment of the ICH9M-E with the Atom D series integrated processor represents the highest level of integration for PC/104 embedded applications in the 10W range. In particular, the ADLD25PC is superior to competing D series implementations using the ICH8 with its larger footprint, higher power, and lack of RAID support,” said J.C Ramirez, Product Manager, ADL Embedded Solutions.
