Page 1 of 1
A family of desktop networking platforms powered by energy-efficient Intel Atom processors features up to 6 Intel Gigabit Ethernet ports. The PL-80260 from Win Enterprises is only 9.1” wide and designed for networking applications in small- to mid-size businesses and remote Enterprise offices.
The device pairs either the Atom D410 single-core or D510 dual-core processor with the Intel 82801HM I/O Hub. Intel Hyper-Threading Technology increases logical CPU threads resulting in more efficient use of processor resources. The PL-80260 is designed to support a range of OEM applications such as routing, firewall/threat management, database and network attached storage (NAS).
CompactFlash, SSD or HDD, DDR2 SO-DIMM (up to 2 Gbyte), Dual SATA-II interfaces and mini PCI slot are expandable features that can be upgraded through an easily removable chassis cover. A maximum of six Intel-based GbE LAN ports are provided with two-port bypass controlled by a programmable watchdog timer. Each Internet interface has an LED indicator to show activity and transfer rate. A fully loaded PL-80260 configuration has peak thermal design power (TDP) of approximately 30 watts. The unit is FCC, CE and RoHS compliant.
Recommended operating systems for PL-80260 evaluation units include Windows XP Pro and Windows 7. Linux version support includes Fedora 13, Debian 5.0.6 and openSUSE 11.3. The PL-80260 supports 32-bit and 64-bit software. Additional Windows and Linux distributions are documented to support the Intel Atom D410/D510 + ICH8M with 82574L drivers. Users should check their operating system documentation for hardware compatibility or contact WIN Enterprises regarding their software selection. The PL-8026A version with Dual-Core Atom D510 costs $379 in 1,000-unit quantities.
