Overview


The PCM-4896 is an all-in-one multimedia NS Geode™ GX1 MMX™ processor based single board computer (SBC) with an integrated audio controller, a PCI Flat Panel controller, a PCI 100Base-T Ethernet interface, and one PCI expansion slot. With true Pentium® MMX™ capability, the PCM-4896 achieves outstanding performance that surpasses other SBC in its class. In addition, the onboard SSD interface supports M-systems DiskOnChip® 2000 series, memory capacity from 2 MB to 1 GB. This compact (only 5.75"“ x 8") unit offers all the functions of a single board industrial computer, but still fits in the space of a CD-ROM drive.

On-board features include four serial ports (three RS-232, one RS-232/ 422/485), one multi-mode parallel (ECP/EPP/SPP) port, a connector for two USB (Universal Serial Bus) ports, a floppy drive controller, and a keyboard/PS/2 mouse interface. The built-in high speed PCI IDE controller supports Ultra DMA/33 mode. Up to two IDE devices can be connected, including large hard disks, CD-ROM drives, and tape backup drives, etc.

The PCM-4896 also features power management to minimize power consumption. It complies with the APM standard and supports three types of power saving features: doze, standby, and suspend mode. In addition, the board's watchdog timer can be programed to reset the system or generate an interrupt in case the system stops due to a program bug or EMI.
Highly Integrated Multimedia SBC

The PCM-4896 is a highly integrated multimedia SBC that combines audio, video, and network functions on a CD-ROM drive size single computer board. It provides, 16-bit full-duplex, integrated 3D audio and up to 1024 x 768 resolution @ 64K colors with on-chip 2MB SDRAM display memory. Major onboard devices utilize PCI technology to achieve outstanding computing performance.
