RADISYS ADDS 486SL PERFORMANCE TO ITS EMBEDDED MODULAR COMPUTER LINE

 BEAVERTON, Ore., April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- RadiSys Corp., the embedded PC company, introduced today the EPC-23, a powerful new 486SL(TM) CPU module, and a strong addition to its Embedded Modular Computer (EMC) family. The EMC family is a small, rugged, PC-compatible computer designed to be embedded in automated equipment to provide control and human interface functions.
 EMC-based systems are ideal for OEM builders of computer controlled equipment who need powerful and compact embedded computer solutions. Cards are small (3 inches by 5.85 inches) and designed to work in harsh environments. Applications include information kiosks, ATMs, telecommunications devices, industrial equipment, ticket dispensers and any other application where human interaction plays a key role in controlling the equipment. The new EPC-23 is powerful enough to carry the EMC concept into graphic-intensive applications based on Windows(TM) or OS/2(TM), and industrial control applications that require fast response to interrupts and high speed I/O.
 "The EPC-23 can handle many embedded applications that once required much more expensive hardware," said Steve Cooper, director of Business Development at RadiSys.
 The EPC-23 complements a broad line of RadiSys EMC chassis, CPU modules, video controllers, solid-state disks, networking cards and I/O modules. A complete 486SL system measuring just 5.5 inches tall by 10.2 inches wide and 6.5 inches deep and consisting of the EPC-23 CPU with 4 MByte DRAM, the EXM-13 Super VGA controller, EXM-MX40 hard disk, EMC-CH6D six-slot chassis, EMC-FDM floppy disk module, and the EMC-PS50AC power supply can be configured for $1,970.
 When DC power is available separately, RadiSys offers an even smaller package using the EMC-CC4 four-slot card cage (4.3 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide by 6.6 inches deep). Accessories such as keyboards, VGA monitors, mice, DOS, Windows and cables are also available from RadiSys. New additions to the line include the EXM-17 PCMCIA carrier module, EXM-18 serial/parallel port, EXM-19 digital I/O, EXM-20 16-channel, 12-bit A/D, and the EXM-21 two- channel D/A card.
 One of the first companies to use the EPC-23 is Automation Intelligence (AI) in Duluth, Ga. AI plans to announce a new family of motion controllers based on the SERCOS fiber optic standard for digital servo drive technology. "The RadiSys EPC-23 lets our system double the number of axes it controls," said Hal Gurley, AI president. "The combination of RadiSys EMC products and our SERCOS digital drive controls will revolutionize the motion control industry."
 PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
 The EPC-23 module contains 4 MBytes of DRAM, two serial ports, keyboard interface and a PC compatible BIOS along with its 25 MHz Intel 80486SL microprocessor with 8K cache and coprocessor. Price for the EPC-23 is $985 in quantities of 100. Production shipments commence April 1, 1993. Other CPUs now available for the EMC family include the EPC-21 16 MHz 386SL and the EPC-22 25 MHz 386 SL with prices beginning at $425 (quantity 100).
