Taipei, Taiwan, September 11, 2007—MOXA is pleased to announce the launch of a new line of embedded PC/104 and PC/104- Plus serial modules that are suitable for industrial applications. The modules are designed to operate reliably in a -40 to 85°C temperature range, and the on-board 15 KV ESD protection and 2 KV optical isolation features make the new boards an attractive alternative to other similar products on the market.

PC/104 is an embedded computer standard characterized by small form factor, low power consumption, and module stacking. As networking applications increase in popularity, embedded PCs are being used for a wide range of applications, including traditional industrial automation, KIOSK/ATM/POS for the man on the street, safety monitoring, medical facilities, and telecom equipment. MOXA's new PC/104 and PC/104- Plus modules make it easy for system designers to add serial ports to their embedded computers.

The CA series of PC/104 module follow the original PC/104 standard, which uses for a 104-pin ISA bus. The CB series of PC/104-Plus modules incorporates both the 104-pin ISA bus and 120-pin PCI bus. The CA and CB series drivers support all major operating systems, including DOS, Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista, Windows XP Embedded, and Linux 2.4/2.6, and optional DB9 and DB25 connection cables are available for connecting to many types of serial device. The device drivers for the CA and CB series make full use of the 128-byte Tx/Rx FIFO and on-chip H/W and S/W flow control, which allow data transmission at speeds of up to 921.6 Kbps. The CA series and CB series boards come with 4, or 8 3-in-1 (RS-232/422/485) serial ports for connecting data access devices and other equipment to embedded computers.
