Zendex P4/Celeron Single Board Computer Intended for Performance Video Applications


Dublin, California, February 6, 2006 --- Zendex Corporation announces a Single Board Computer (SBC) specifically designed for high performance video applications. The board includes multiple VGA outputs, AC97® amplified stereo audio outputs and a number of other features designed to satisfy high-end audio-video needs.

The highly adaptable VGA video ports drive two 1600 x 1200 resolution displays. Behind the video outputs are dual VGA outputs with up to 64MB of shared memory. For graphically intensive and memory-hungry applications, the board can accommodate up to 1GB of DDR DRAM.

The ZXE-856 supports a wide array of mass storage devices. It features 2 UDMA 100 ATA channels supporting up to 4 ATA devices (i.e. 4 hard drives) or 4 Compact Flash memory type I headers on the ATA Bus. The ATA bus can also support an ATAPI CD ROM drive, Disk on Module or Multi Media Card. There are also DIP sockets for EPROM or other on-volatile memory.

There are many O/S choices, including Microsoft Windows® XP, 2000, XP Embedded and Linux. Zendex can modify the proprietary BIOS software to suit the user’s needs or to include additional security features.

An extra feature is an on-board thermal monitor. While the board itself is designed to run 24/7 without fan cooling, the system configuration might include other heat-generating devices that might necessitate a fan. The on-board thermal sensor provides a digital temperature output which can be accessed over the Intranet via the 10/100MB/sec Ethernet connector for remote monitoring.

The ZXE-856 is designed to operate from a single +12V or +15V supply. Power consumption is nominally under 25W, and varies by configuration. The ZXE-856 measures 12” x 9-1/4” x 2”. The low profile is especially useful in desktop games, where cabinet size is limited.

Zendex is a full-service provider of PC/104+ and other single board computers, embedded processor boards, multi-function boards, CIMbus, Multibus and iSBX modules, industrial enclosures and custom systems. Zendex recently celebrated 25 years in the embedded systems industry. Zendex headquarters is located at 6780A Sierra Court, Dublin, CA 94568-2623.
