Gespac PCISYS-59 Crusoe 3U CompactPCI Board
In late 2002, GESPAC introduced a high performance/low consumption PC platform based on Transmeta's TM5800 Crusoe Processor running at 800MHz. The Gespac PCISYS-59 features a highly integrated x86 class assembly, built on a compact 3U Eurocard format.
With a combination of processig and rugged industrial packaging, it makes the Gespac board an ideal choice for industrial automation, real-time machine control, telecommunication or medical systems applications.
The Gespac PCISYS-59 includes a Transmeta Crusoe (x86 compatible) microprocessor, 128 Mbytes of soldered DDR SDRAM @ 266 MHz, one standard 144-pin SO-DIMM modules for up to 256 Mbytes of SDRAM. The CompactPCI bus provides the features and benefits of the PCI bus specification 2.2 (32-bits, 33 MHz, 132 MB/s bandwidth, Plug & Play) on a 3U Eurocard and an IEC-1076 compliant shielded, high density connector, allowing up to 8 boards to be connected in the same backplane.
The PCISYS-59 includes the CPU core, basic PC functions, two Fast Ethernet controllers, EIDE (UDMA/33) port, two USB ports and a DVI-I video output. The PCISYS-59 is compatible with the PC architecture and can run any PC based operating system like WindowsXP, OS/2, QNX, Linux, etc.
