This low-power unit supports a high bandwidth DDR3 SO-DIMM slot with memory up to 4 GB. In addition, it features a 2.5 SATA HDD and mainstream CFast™ for storing event log. To help with unexpected shutdowns, the NA-340 supports a LAN bypass function through WDT and GPIO pin definitions. One PCI Express Mini card (USB-type) is available for WiFi card installation.
“Powered by a high-performance yet low-power Intel® Atom™ processors D525 processor with ICH8M chipset, Axiomtek’s NA-340 network appliance platform offers users a high-end and stable network performance with low power consumption at a reasonable cost. It is an ideal network security solution for VPN, firewall, UTM, network bandwidth controller, and network management applications. To provide faster response time in multitasking environments, the NA-340 supports Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology which comes standard in the CPU. This network appliance platform offers six high-speed Gigabit network connections using Intel® 82583V LAN chip. To enhanced reliability, it supports data protection via bypass segment for fail-over option. The platform also features BIOS redirection to console port,” said Philip Wei, Product Manager of Product & Marketing Division at Axiomtek.
In order to address the various network application needs, the NA-340 features one 2.5” SATA HDD, one CFast™ slot, one console port, and two USB ports, and one PCI Express Mini card (USB-type). For easy maintenance, the front panel has a front-facing LED indicator for power and HDD activity monitoring. The SOHO network appliance also supports mainstream Linux kernel 2.4 and 2.6 operating systems.
The Atom-based NA-340 will be available in the middle of May, 2012.
