North Andover, Mass. – December 9 – WIN Enterprises announces PL-80260, a family of desktop networking platforms powered by energy-efficient Intel® Atom™ processors and which feature up to 6 Intel GbE LAN ports. The device, only 9.1” wide, is designed for networking applications in small- to mid-size businesses and remote Enterprise offices.

The device pairs either the Intel Atom D410 single-core or D510 dual-core processor with the Intel 82801HM I/O Hub. Intel Hyper-Threading Technology increases logical CPU threads resulting in more efficient use of processor resources. The PL-80260 is designed to support a range of OEM applications such as routing, firewall/threat management, database, and network attached storage (NAS).

CompactFlash™, SSD or HDD, DDR2 SO-DIMM (up to 2GB), Dual SATA-II interfaces, and mini PCI slot are expandable features that can be upgraded through an easily removable chassis cover. A maximum of six Intel-based GbE LAN ports are provided with two-port bypass controlled by a programmable watchdog timer. Each Internet interface has an LED indicator to show activity and transfer rate. A fully loaded PL-80260 configuration has peak thermal design power (TDP) of approximately 30 Watts. The unit is FCC, CE, and RoHS compliant.
