Aurora is a rugged, single board computer (SBC) based on the 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530P CPU and conforming to the compact, PC/104-sized, SUMIT-ISM form-factor.
The SBC supports up to 2GB of DDR2 SO-DIMM SDRAM and provides high-resolution LVDS and SDVO graphics interfaces. Additional I/O ports include SATA, USB, serial, digital I/O, and Gigabit Ethernet. Flexible system expansion is based on industry-standard, stackable PC/104 (ISA) and SUMIT-A (PCIe) modules. A location is also provided for an optional on-board USB flashdisk.
Aurora's power-efficient design leverages Intel's ultra-low-power (Menlow) silicon platform, consisting of the Atom Z5xx (Silverthorne) processors and US15W chipset (Poulsbo). 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.
Aurora is compatible with Linux, Windows XP, Windows Embedded Standard, Windows Embedded CE, and QNX. All necessary drivers are provided with the product.
