Sunnyvale, California. May 17, 2011 – IBASE Technology (USA), Inc. (TASDAQ: 8050) announces the release of the eFlex Platform – a highly compact yet expandable fanless platform for embedded computing. eFlex bridges the gap between full sized computing solutions and micronized systems with a comprehensive platform that affords maximum flexibility. eFlex is comprised of three core component sets:
- eFlex mainboards – small form factor with multiple MiniPCIe, mSATA and Expresscard.
- eFlex enclosures – compact and interchangeable enclosures.
- mPCIe, mSATA and Expresscard expansion boards – non-proprietary, readily available & expandable.
> eFlex Mainboard
The FB800 is IBASE’s first eFlex mainboard utilizing the Intel® Atom™ processor D2700. Packed onto its compact 7.5” x 4.3” form factor are three (3) industry standard MiniPCIe sized expansion slots, an Expresscard slot and a 2.5” SSD/HDD dock. There is also a standardized set of external I/O connectors affording full interchangeability amongst eFlex boards and chassis. Subsequent eFlex board offerings will inherit these attributes.
- Onboard Intel® Atom™ Processor D2700, 2.13GHz
- 2 x mPCIe(x1), 1 x mSATA, 1 x Expresscard slots, 1 x 2.5” SSD/HDD dock
- DVI-I, GbE, 2 x COM, 3 x USB, Audio (Standard eFlex external I/O set)
> eFlex Enclosures
eFlex enclosures are mechanically interchangeable between eFlex mainboards (thermal dissipation capacity permitting). They feature standardized I/O bays and plates. At launch, IBASE offers two industrial enclosure solutions – the slim line AFB100 and the double deck AFB200. The AFB100 offers a low profile (30mm) solution with one auxiliary I/O bay for additional connectors from mPCIe expansion cards. The AFB200 offers a double height configuration with three auxiliary I/O bays. An externally accessible SSD/HDD bay and 12V DC input is standard; 6~34V DC input is optional. Both enclosures also feature the unique Highly Adaptable Mounting (HAM) system configurable to 5 different mounting schemes.
> Expansion Boards
eFlex systems utilize the Expresscard, mSATA and MiniPCIe expansion cards to facilitate expansion and customization. IBASE offers a comprehensive set of expansion cards, but an eFlex system can also tap the broad selection of industry standard Expresscard, mPCIe(x1) and mSATA from 3rd parties.
The new eFlex platform will be presented at this year’s InfoComm 2012 in Las Vegas. For more information about InfoComm 2012, please visit the show’s official website: http://www.infocommshow.org
