The BBD20EUROA provides a complete platform for thin client applications. There is provision for a large number of peripherals including a dual head capable Silicon Motion SM501 accelerated 2D graphics GPU. This GPU is capable of independent 1280x1024 pixel output on both displays. The extensive peripheral set combined with this graphics capability gives an extremely flexible platform for use where a graphical display is required.
