The FS-97C is a PICMG 1.0 platform based on the Intel 945GM and ICH7M Chipset, which supports Intel Core Duo & Core 2 Duo processors at 667MHz FSB. It provides up to 25% faster data transfer rate compared to the previous generation bus speed and dual channel DDR2 533/667MHz memory architecture in configurations of up to 3 GB RAM. The new Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950 provides incredible visual quality and versatile display options. The ICH7M is integrated with Realtek 5.1-CH Audio. 18-bit Dual Channel LVDS is included.
The FS-97C comes with the following interfaces: floppy, PS/2 Keyboard and Mouse, UltraATA100 EIDE, 1 x RS232 & 1 x RS232/422/485, 2 x SATA with 150MB/s transfer rate. Networking is provided by the Intel 82573L Gigabit Ethernet. There are 4 x USB2.0 ports for 40X faster data transfer rate and backward compatible to support USB 1.1 devices, 1 x IrDA and GPIO interface. Peripherals also include Mini-PCI slot which is designed to accommodate the most power-hungry expansion card, e.g. Wi-Fi card.
Additionally the FS-97C is equipped with a CompactFlash Interface for the easy addition of any memory card.
