The TS-5500 is an Embedded Single Board Computer (SBC) that features a 133MHz 586 CPU and a wide-set of I/O interfaces. This computer allows easy embedded application development through PC-Compatible tools and methods, while ensuring in-field reliability and ruggedness for end-user systems. DOS and Linux are available as out-of-the-box Operating Systems for this product.
This product is a compact, full-featured PC compatible Single Board Computer based on the AMD Elan520 processor. At 133MHz, it is approximately 10 times faster than our other 386EX based products for only a small additional cost. PC compatibility allows for rapid development since you can use standard PC development tools such as Turbo C or Power Basic or Linux based tools, as well. If you have done work in the PC world in the past, you will find you can now build applications for a very small target that does not require a keyboard, video, floppy disks, or hard drives.
Additional features include:
PC compatibility requires much more than just an x86 processor. It requires PC compatible memory and I/O maps as well as a PC compatible BIOS. The General Software EMBEDDED BIOS (Version 4.3) offers a high degree of compatibility with past and present BIOS standards allowing it to run off-the shelf operating systems and application software. This PC compatible BIOS boots to IDE Compact Flash or Drive A and the BIOS is shadowed in RAM for speed.
The TS-5000 computers are shipped, free of charge, with Embedded DOS ROM by General Software. They can also be shipped upon request with Linux pre-installed for a nominal fee. The Linux file system and kernel is also freely available on the web should you wish to install it yourself. Typically, the Linux OS requires a 16MB or larger Compact Flash or an M-Systems DiskOnChip.
