b-plus DIMMBoard DX86 - SODIMM 144 Socket DIMM-PC Module

Speeds to 600MHz - Kontron DIMM-PC Replacement

Introduction

DIMMBoard DX86 is nearly compliant to the DIMM-PC® module specification in fit & functions. The core unit is a 27x27mm sized Vortex86DX SoC by DMP (581-Pin Ball BGA Package). The CPU features a Floating Point Unit(FPU), is x86 compliant and supports clock rates up to 1.0 GHz. Clocked at 600 MHz a fully passive cooled operation is possible resulting in minimal spatial dimensions. Due to the extremely low power consumption it's the ideal solution for mobile embedded devices. A nearly unlimited portfolio of peripheral interfaces and functions allows various application scenarios. Drivers and software support for current embedded operating systems are available, e.g. DOS, WinCE, WinXP embedded and Linux, that makes a migration of existing software from another x86 architecture easier. The modular concept as a plug-in module enables scaling of performance classes. Due to the featuring of the onboard FLASH drive as a Micro-SD-Card Slot the size of the mass storage can be scaled from 1 GB up to 16 GB. Additionally USB and optional IDE are realized with 2 feature connectors directly on the board.

OtherCompatability:

DIMM-PC I/O modules:
•COM3/4 Serial ports on DIMM-PC/COM1/COMBO1/COMBO2 etc won't work with this module
•Only VGA on DIMM-PC/VGA1/VGA2/COMBO1/COMBO2 will work - no LCD interface with this module
•Both due to non standard features on original DIMM-PC CPU modules

Other:
•No IDE signals presented to DIMM-PC connector
•No floppy signals presented to DIMM-PC connector
•Above pins have been repurposed for GPIO/USB/LAN usage)
•Both affect baseboard compatability (i.e. if baseboard require these signals then there is an issue)
