Eurotech Introduces Catalyst LP, a Compact, Low-Power Embedded System Based on the Intel(R) Atom(TM) Processor

Eurotech's Catalyst LP delivers the low-power of the Intel(R) Atom(TM) processors N450, D410, and D510 in a high-performance embedded system

COLUMBIA, Md., Dec. 21 -- Eurotech, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, products, and systems, today announces the launch of Catalyst LP, a compact, low-power embedded system based on the latest Intel® Atom™ processors N450, D410 and D510. The most recent product in the popular Eurotech Catalyst family of computer on modules, the Catalyst LP embedded system offers high-performance graphics for applications requiring high-end 2-D and 3-D visualization with high-resolution graphics capabilities, including digital signage. In addition, high bandwidth I/O capability including PCIe, and data storage interfaces like SATA make the Catalyst LP ideal for applications requiring extensive data retrieval and processing such as those in the industrial, medical, gaming, human-machine interface, and other markets.

The Catalyst LP system has a compact 67x100mm form factor and leverages the full price/performance benefits of the Intel® Atom™ processor-based platform. With a common footprint, the Catalyst LP system is easily scalable and allows existing Catalyst Module customers to migrate to the new Intel Atom processors N450, D410, or D510 with minimal effort. The system also offers extensive I/O capabilities with the Intel® 82801HM I/O Controller.

Distinctive features of Eurotech's Catalyst LP include:

• Low-power design with Eurotech microcontroller-based power management system

• Scalablility to leverage the range of Intel Atom processor performance capabilities in I/O and 2-D and 3-D graphics

• Flexibility in allowing migration to Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology and multicore technology (with the dual-core Intel Atom processor D510) while maintaining the small 67 x 100 form factor of the Eurotech Catalyst family

• Operating system support for Windows CE, Windows Embedded Standard and Wind River Linux 3.0

• Easy application development with Eurotech's optional Everyware™ Software Framework based on the Java Virtual Machine

"At Eurotech we align our product development concurrent with processor availability, making the latest technology accessible to progressive OEM customers," said Hilary Tomasson, vice president of marketing for Eurotech Inc. "Eurotech offers a seamless migration pattern for customers ready to take advantage of the new Intel Atom processors immediately in our Catalyst form factor. The Catalyst LP system from Eurotech offers OEMs easy application development options in both single core and dual core configurations."


The Catalyst LP embedded system will be available in the first quarter of 2010. For more information visit[...].
