PC Engines ALIX 3D3 256Mb System Board
PC Engines ALIX 3D3 256Mb System Board (LX800 1 LAN 2 miniPCI 2 USB VGA)
The PC Engines ALIX 3D3 is an Eurocard sized (100 x 160mm) system board with a very large range of possible applications including wireless routers, firewalls, industrial user interface or bespoke network devices.
This is the VGA and audio version of the PC Engines 3. series, also available is the non VGA and audio variant, the PC Engines ALIX 3D2.
The ALIX 3D3 has 256MB of DDR RAM and a 500MHz AMD Geode LX800 allowing for a full range of 32bit x86 applications. The innovative architecture of the LX800 provides one of the most energy-efficient x86 solutions in the industry; this, in combination with the on-board DC-DC converter, removes the need for a bulky ATX-style PSU resulting in a powerful system board with a very small footprint. Alternatively the PC Engines ALIX 3D3 can be powered using passive PoE on its LAN port.
Also on board the PC Engines ALIX 3D3 is a CompactFlash port. This allows a wide range of operating systems to be installed on the ALIX 3D3 including:
- MikroTik RouterOS
- IPFire Firewall
- Meteohub weather server
- Microsoft Windows XP
The PC Engines ALIX 3D3 motherboard provides expandability with 2 Mini-PCI ports which can be used for installing a wireless card. This could turn the ALIX 3D3 into a fully-featured wireless access point or even a wireless bridge. Multiple radio cards would allow the board to work in multiple frequencies at the same time which could vastly increase throughput with dual band compatible devices. There is also dual USB port that can be used with any peripherals providing your chosen OS will support them.
The ALIX 3D3 system board has I/O ports for: 1x Serial, 1x DC Jack, 1x 10/100 Ethernet, 2x USB, 2x Audio and 1x VGA.
PC Engines also make an indoor enclosure specifically for the ALIX 3D3 without I/O cut-outs for every port.
