The PCI-6870 is the latest effort to provide new PCI based solutions to our customers. This SBC is based solely on the PCI bus standard.

The advantage of using the PCI bus standard is the higher performance of 32-bits at 33 MHz compared to the ISA buses' standard 8/16-bits at 8 MHz. This increased performance makes PCI cards especially attractive for communication applications. PCI bus cards also provide for easy expansion. For example,adding another Ethernet port could easily be done on a PCI bus card. Also,other high-speed add-on cards need a PCI interface. High speed Add-on communication cards are good examples of this.

The PCI-6870 supports both 0.13 micron and 0.18 micron socket 370 Pentium® III/Celeron™ processors of FSB 100/133. Using Intel® 815E chipset, it can support a Pentium® III CPU up to 1.24GHz or a Celeron™ CPU up to 1.2 GHz. PCI-6870 uses the VGA controller in the 815E chipset and supports Direct AGP. The VGA memory is UMA shared memory and can be further upgraded to 4MB with an optional module. There are 2 serial ports, one RS-232 and one RS-232/422/485. The PCI-6870's USB interface is USB rev. 1.1 compliant. There is a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet interface as well as SIR IrDA compliant infrared support. The PCI IDE interface has two IDE channels and supports 4 IDE devices with Ultra DMA33 with Bus Mastering up to 33MB/sec. In addition, channel one IDE supports Ultra DMA 33/66/100.
