The CoreModule CM1-86DX3 is a PC/104 board with DMP Vortex86-DX3 single-chip solution and has a very good performance-to-power ratio. The board comprises all peripherals needed for an embedded PC on a small 3.775″ by 4.050″ printed circuit board. The CM1-86DX3 integrates a powerful yet efficient DMP Vortex86DX3 with a graphic controller and audio controller together with an additional GBit Ethernet controller to form a complete PC, with all the standard peripherals already onboard. Two Ethernet ports (1x GBit and 1x 100MBit), four RS232/RS422/RS485 serial ports, and two USB 2.0 host controllers to handle the communication with external devices. There are PS/2 connectors for the keyboard and mouse. A first-generation SATA interface allows the connection of a hard disk or CD drive. CFast is also available. System expansion can easily be realized over the PC/104 bus connectors.
The CM1-86DX3 runs DOS, Win CE 6.0, WEC7, WES2009, WES7, and Linux operating systems. The Vortex86-DX3 SoC does have a simulated ACPI to support Windows 7. Nevertheless, there are no S3 or S4 modes supported.
