Diamond Systems Atlas - PCI/104-Express with Intel Atom CPU

1.86GHz N2800 CPU, 2/4GB DDR3 soldered, 5V Powered, 1x 1GigE & USB2

Introduction

Atlas is a rugged PCI/104-Express SBC based on Intel's dual core Cedar Trail N2800 CPU. Offering a speed of 1.86 GHz and dual core hyperthreading technology that enables applications to run in parallel, Atlas provides exceptionally efficient processing. The Atlas SBC combines excellent Intel Atom CPU performance, a wealth of on-board I/O and a conduction cooled thermal solution at a competitive price. For on-board solid state storage, mSATA disk modules up to 64 GB are available in SLC and MLC technologies and with wide temperature operation.

Atlas' rugged design makes it exceptionally reliable in harsh applications including industrial, on-vehicle and military environments. From an operating temperature of -40°C to +75°C and on-board DDR3 SDRAM to an integrated conduction cooling heat spreader and a high tolerance for shock and vibration, Atlas thrives in harsh environments. The bottom-mounted heat spreader provides a convenient mounting platform for the board, reduces case interior temperatures for improved system reliability, and simplifies the installation of I/O modules and cables by eliminating interference from heat sinks.

I/O Expansion

Available on-board I/O includes USB 2.0, RS-232/422/485, Gigabit Ethernet, SATA and digital I/O. Atlas supports I/O expansion with PCI-104, PCIe/104, and PCI/104-Express I/O modules by using a new miniature, cost-effective, high-speed expansion connector that supports most PCIe/104 I/O modules.

Atlas accommodates on-board expansion I/O modules in the PCIe MiniCard form factor featuring WiFi, Ethernet, analog I/O, digital I/O, and CAN. These modules provide compact expandability without increasing the total height of the system. Click here to see Diamond's full line of rugged PCIe MiniCard modules.

Conduction Cooling

Atlas' design features Intel's N2800 CPU and NM10chipset. These ICs are positioned on the bottom of the board, resulting in easy and efficient heat removal via a heatspreader for wide temperature, fanless operation. Atlas utilizes conduction cooling for improved ruggedness and reliability through the use of a heatspreader mounted on its bottom side, resulting in optimal thermal management and increased space for I/O functions and connectors. The four mounting holes on the bottom of the conduction cooled heatspreader are #6-32 threaded holes on 2.8" centers.

Software Support

Atlas runs Linux and Windows Embedded Standard 7. Development Kits are available with OS drivers to get you started on your design project right out of the box.

Development Kits

A complete system Development Kit with a bootable Linux image is available with all the components you need to get started on your embedded design project. The kit contains an Atlas SBC, pre-programmed flashdisk, cable kit, AC adapter, and DVD with Linux software. A Linux Software Development Kit, SDK-ATLN-LNX, is also available.
