Eurotech Launches ISIS XL, a Rugged PC/104+ Board using the Intel(R) Atom(TM) Processor Z5xx Series Platform

Extended Temperature Range, Low Power and High Performance in Popular and Proven PC/104 Form Factor for Industrial Control, Military, and In-Vehicle Applications

NUREMBERG, Germany, March 2 -- Eurotech, a leading Group for Embedded Products and Technologies, today announces the launch of the ISIS XL, a rugged PC/104 Plus Board based on the Intel® Atom™ processor Z5xx series platform.

The ISIS XL is a high performance, low power board engineered for rugged applications where attributes such as extended temperature range and proven, industry standard form factor are a must.

"Moving our expertise with the Intel Atom processor platform to the PC/104 Plus platform brings higher processing capabilities and power improvements to the many companies committed to PC/104 design," says Giampietro Tecchiolli, CTO of Eurotech. "The ISIS XL will benefit new projects with an advanced, yet user-friendly platform, and will bring new life to legacy designs needing new technology and higher performance in this form factor."

"The latest offerings of the Intel Atom processor Z5xx platform with industrial temperature range are ideal for fanless solutions that need to operate in unconstrained thermal environments," said Jonathan Luse, director of marketing, Low Power Embedded Products Division, Intel. "Embedded computing systems based on Intel Atom, such as the Eurotech ISIS XL, enable next generation devices for many different industries."

The Eurotech Catalyst Module XL and ISIS XL demonstrations are operating in the Eurotech booth (#12-116) and the Intel booth (#9-357) at the Embedded World 2009 exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany.


The ISIS XL will be available in the second quarter of 2009.
