Ampro's CoreModule 420 PC/104 SBC is a migration product designed to keep 486-based embedded systems in production through 2010. The I/O addresses and IRQ mappings allow it to be configured to match many legacy system setups. In addition, the memory hole is configurable for legacy PC/104 peripheral cards. The CoreModule 420 supports four serial ports (two for RS-485), along with eight general-purpose I/O (GPIO) pins, an EPP/ECP parallel port, one USB 1.1 port and a high-resolution 2-D video controller with CRT. Interfaces are provided for PS/2 keyboard and mouse, floppy and Ultra/DMA 33 IDE disks, 10/100BaseT Ethernet and TFT flat panels. CoreModule 420 provides 64MB of soldered SDRAM, along with a byte-wide socket for a DiskOnChip 2000 bootable Flash drive and a Type II CompactFlash socket.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
