Wireless Router Application Platform
|The PC Engines
WRAP system board gives network OEMs a cost-effective SBC
platform for their value-added software, such as wireless routers, firewalls,
load balancers, VPN, industrial Ethernet, or other special
purpose network devices.|
||WRAP is END OF LIFE, as the AMD SC1100 CPU is no longer
Why ? National (the original designer of AMD Geode SC1100) wanted to free
up their fab for other products. AMD understandably did not want to spend
scarce design resources on porting this legacy product to another process.
For new designs, please consider ALIX, based on the
faster AMD Geode LX CPU.
||233 MHz AMD Geode SC1100 CPU (fast 486 core)|
||64 or 128 MB SDRAM|
||Operating system and application stored on CompactFlash
card (not included).|
||Not much ! About 3 to 5W at 12V DC (excluding miniPCI
cards), supplied through DC jack or passive
Power over Ethernet (not 802.3af compliant).
Acceptable voltage range +7V to +18V DC.
||Watchdog timer built into CPU; LM77 thermal monitor
stops system on excessive temperature.
||Three front panel LEDs, one pushbutton switch, can
be controlled through CPU GPIO pins (no switch on WRAP.2C).
Console I/O redirected to serial port.|
||LPC bus for adding serial ports, ISA style I/O,
GPIO etc. I2C bus for user interface, software lock devices etc.|
||1 to 3 Ethernet channels (National DP83816),
2 or 1 miniPCI slots (cards not included), 1 serial port (console).|
||WRAP.1E-1 = 2 LAN / 2 miniPCI, 6" x 6"
WRAP.1E-2 = 3 LAN / 1 miniPCI, 6" x 6"
WRAP.2E1 = 1 LAN / 2 miniPCI, 64 MB DRAM,
100 x 160 mm
WRAP.2E3 = 1 LAN / 2 miniPCI, 128 MB DRAM,
100 x 160 mm
||OEM discounts available. Custom build options for larger quantities:
DRAM size, Ethernet, serial, front panel LEDs and switch,
buzzer, RTC battery, custom BIOS adaptation.
Contact PC Engines for details.|
||WRAP.1E: Some slight changes to reduce susceptibility against
transients, add footprint for optional buzzer, optional battery,
IDE DMA support.
||WRAP includes PC Engines tinyBIOS on board.
Version 1.11 BIOS upgrade (fixed reset timing
to support Atheros single chip radios).
README.TXT before doing the deed ! If you can't get into setup, please
disable serial port hardware handshake in your terminal emulator. Also see
how to make a FreeDOS boot disk for help.
For posterity, full WRAP BIOS source
is now available !
