Taipei, Taiwan – February 2012 — Artila Electronics, the leading designer and manufacturer of Linux-ready ARM9 industrial PC, is proud to announce the launch of PAC-4000, DIN-Rail mounted Industrial ARM9 Embedded Computer.”

PAC-4000 is a fanless DIN-RAIL mounted industrial computer which is powered by 400MHz ARM9 ATMEL AT91SAM9G20, 64MB SDRAM and 128MB NAND Flash memory. PAC-4000 comes with two Ethernet ports, up to four RS-232 ports and two isolated RS-485 ports, two USB host ports and one microSD socket. PAC-4000 is designed for hazardous environment in mind. It can operate at wide temperature range up to 70 degree C. Moreover, the extended temperature model, PAC-4000T which can operate -20 to 80 degree C is also available upon request.
PAC-4000 is pre-installed with Linux 2.6.29 OS and busybox utility collection. The UBI file system is employed to provide improved performance and longer lifetime for NAND Flash compared to JFFS2. Furthermore, the DataFlash includes a backup Linux file system which will automatically boot up in case of NAND Flash memory crash. The failure-proof and redundant booting design makes PAC-4000 an ideal platform for many mission-critical applications.

In terms of package management system, PAC-4000 uses ipkg, a lightweight system that is resembled to Debian’s dpkg. This allows users to easily install, upgrade, and remove the software package. Artila continuously increases and updates the software package to its ftp site for the users to download for free to install the software package they need from the internet.

Useful software utilities are also provided for easy management and development of PAC-4000, including webmin, and the GNU tool chain, which includes a C/C++ cross compiler and Glibc. For more product information, please visit, or email to About Artila Artila Electronics Co., Ltd. is an emerging force in the industrial computer field, dedicated to minimizing mass while maximizing utility.
