Diamond Systems


Rhodeus RDS800-XT from Diamond Systems is a fan-less PC/104 SBC which features the AMD Geode LX800 low power consumption processor running at 500MHz. It uses high speed DDR SDRAM providing maximum capacity at 1GB. Rhodeus offers fully integrated PC functionality with low power consumption which allows Rhodeus to operate in harsh environments where the airflow for heat dissipation is restricted and heat sinks or fans are unacceptable. Its ruggedability gives it the power to perform round-the-clock in unattended environments.

Other advantages of Diamond Systems’ Rhodeus RDS800-XT includes high speed 10/100 Ethernet LAN and ample I/O interfaces, 2 serial ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, parallel port for peripheral connection, 1 ATA-33 channel, Compact Flash Type-II socket, PC/104 expansion bus, LCD & CRT interface, floppy, and watchdog timer. Rhodeus has all the necessary features and expansion capability in 96 X 90 mm form factor, which makes it ideal for applications where space is limited but multiple I/O configurations are needed. Rhodeus supports Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows CE 5.0, and Linux.

Development Kit

A Linux software development kit is available for Rhodeus. The Rhodeus Linux Kit (SDK-RDS-LNX) contains a 512MB CompactFlash disk with a bootable linux image pre-loaded, a software CD with the linux tool chain and a backup image, and documentation.
