EUROCOM 500                                implemented on the parallel PCI by
                                           PCI Express. Consequently, all PCI
                                           periphery units are fully throughput
                                           connected. Moreover, one additional
                                           PCI Express x1port is provided for
                                           discretionary use.
                                           The EUROCOM 500 platform with its
                                           Atom CPU and the US15W chip
                                           system is supported by Windows XP
                                           – even its embedded version – and
                                           by Linux, including its real time
                                           versions. The module has been
                                           designed for expanded temperature
                                           ranges from -40 °C to + 85 °C.
                                           Typically, it requires only 6 W and,
                                           therefore, does not require a fan.
