ZEUS PXA270 XScale® EPIC single board computer

Wireless Standards Supported: GSM, GPRS, iDEN, GPS, CDMA, ZigBee

Compatible Operating Systems: Windows CE 5.0, Embedded Linux

The ZEUS is an ultra low power single board computer ideally suited to cost sensitive
telematics, asset management,
mobile terminals and similar applications. It features comprehensive communications
choices, a flat panel controller, a wide operating temperature range and optional vehicle
compatible power input.

The RoHS compliant EPIC sized ZEUS uses the Intel®520MHz PXA270 XScale® RISC
processor. Its natural ultra low power demand is further reduced by versatile and
dynamically adjusted sleep modes. ZEUS has seven serial communications ports, allowing a
generous mix of cellular wireless and GPS channels along with more traditional hardwired
serial I/O functions. It can accept a variety of GSM/GPRS, CDMA or iDEN wireless modem
modules. Other wireless interfaces such as Bluetooth, Zigbee or satellite modems can
easily be incorporated into new module designs. Wireless communication is essential for
asset tracking.

The ZEUS also features onboard soldered SDRAM, resident
Flash, dual 10/100baseTx Ethernet ports, I2C controller, USB, AC97 codec, CompactFlash
(CF+), analog touch screen controller, SDIO and standard PC/104 bus expansion. Other
options include a CAN bus controller and an LVDS adapter to remotely connect a flat panel

The ZEUS is supported with Embedded Linux and Microsoft
Windows CE 5.0 embedded operating systems development kits. Each kit contains a ready
configured operating system image, allowing applications development
to start immediately.
