Compulab's ATXBASE boards
October 16, 2003

Israeli embedded systems manufacturer Compulab have added Mini-ITX sized BASE units to their range of single board computer modules, available in December. Compulab have an interesting building-block approach - with a range of very small CORE modules containing a CPU and Memory, and two corresponding ranges of BASE units living in symbiosis underneath, providing increased connectivity and functionality. The CORE modules range from the XScale PXA255-powered ARMCORE (consuming <1W, as seen in PocketPCs the world over) to the Celeron/PIII-powered 886CORE, consuming 25 - 40W. There are 3 Mini-ITX sized ATXBASE modules in the works, the ATX-ARM, ATX-886, and ATX-686 - powered by a 2 - 5W National Semiconductor Geode CPU. The above picture shows an ARMCORE module astride an ATXBASE module, making an ATXBASE-ARM. Even smaller are the BASE modules, in a variety of sizes (some even smaller than Nano-ITX). We probably won't be building one into our Big Trak just yet, as they look to be targetted at a slightly more serious market...
