The passive cooled PC104Board DX3 is based on the current DM&P Vortex86 DX3 System on Chip with Dual Core Processor up to 1 GHz. With the use of up to 2 GByte soldered DDR3 RAM the board offers double RAM size compared to existing boards. B-plus combines a new CPU with existing interfaces according to PC/104-Plus standard and offers long-term availability of minimum 10 years.

The PC/104-Plus board offers full ISA Bus support and an additional PCI interface via PCIe to PCI bridge. Next to these bus interfaces it offers dual display support via VGA and LVDS, PC/2, LPT, audio, 4 USB 2.0 ports and 2 RS-232 interfaces. Additionally to that the used x86 architecture offers a simple software adaption, especially for older operating systems.

Expensive Compact Flash as mass storage on older designs can be replaced at the b-plus PC/104-Plus board with cost-effective ?SD cards. Therefore there is one ?SD card socket as well as an additional onboard interface for external SD cards. For additional mass storage the PC104Board DX3 offers a SATA 1.5Gpbs interface as well as PATA.

For buffering the real time clock (RTC) the PC/104-Plus board utilizes a maintenance free gold cap, which can be extended with an external battery. Through this the operation is more reliable and the service and operation cost is assured. Additionally to that the extended operating temperature range of -20°C up to 70°C enables a failure-free operation even within high temperature load. First samples are available end of September and can be ordered now.
