F212U - Triple USB 2.0 Interface Board

The F212U is a rugged single Eurocard CompactPCI board with three USB 2.0 interfaces at the front. The interfaces support OHCI and EHCI.

The F212U is designed for -40°C to +85°C operation temperature (screened) and prepared for conformal coating in order to be used also in harsh and mobile environments.

It is an ideal extension of a CompactPCI Intel or Power PC system if the USB interfaces provided by the CPU board or the side card are not sufficient.
