Adastra Systems, a member of the JUMPtec Embedded Computer Technology Group, introduces the new ETX-P3, the latest in its line of ETX component Single Board Computers. The ETX-P3 incorporates high-speed AGP graphics, 10/100Mbit Ethernet, advanced audio, and all the standard I/O of a PC/AT computer together with a Pentium® III or Celeron™ processor. ETX component Single Board Computers are low profile, modular, plug-on CPU modules based on a new and innovative open standard.

The ETX-P3 uses the Intel® BX chipset and supports low power Pentium® III and Celeron™ processors up to 500MHz with a 100MHz front side bus. Within the 100 x 114 x 10-mm dimensions of the board, the ETX-P3 integrates all standard PC interfaces (serial, parallel, dual EIDE, and USB) plus sound, 10/100Mbit Ethernet and AGP graphics. The high-speed AGP graphics supports flat panels by means of an LVDS interface.

ETX modules are like components, plugging in to an application-specific baseboard supplying the core CPU and memory subsystems together with sound, SVGA, Ethernet and standard PC I/O. They connect to the rest of the embedded system through high-density, low profile, surface-mount connectors, which carry both ISA and PCI bus signals as well as dedicated I/O interfaces. The mechanics of the interconnection is such that an ETX/baseboard combination is virtually the same height as a one-board solution. ETX modules are scaleable and interchangeable, and they make possible the rapid development of semi-custom solutions for embedded applications. The ETX standard was originally developed by the JUMPtec Group and has been made public, available to all. A copy of the standard can be found at http://www.jumptec.de/product/data/etx/index-e.html.
