Team ASA Inc., a manufacturer of high-performance networking products for Networking, Pre-Press and Digital Multimedia professionals, today announced a major upgrade to the NPWR Linux engine.

NPWR, the first Single Board Computer (SBC) designed for manufacturers and OEMs in the Network Attached Storage (NAS), RAID, and Personal Server marketplaces, is now available with dual Gigabit Ethernet ports.

The NPWR is powered by the Intel XScale processor, the RISC CPU with clock rates reaching as high as 733 Mhz. NPWR's standard configuration includes a 160 Mbytes per second (LVD) SCSI port, 8 Mbytes of FLASH ROM, 128 Mbytes of SDRAM and a Gigabit Ethernet port. Optional models of NPWR can be configured with Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports.

"Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports enable NPWR to fill user needs, such as Firewalls, Routers and Gigabit Ethernet Repeaters" said Mark Murray president of Team ASA. "NPWR is the best and most highly integrated solution for OEMs" stated Murray.

Every NPWR includes Team ASA's Linux port on CDROM. The NPWR CDROM also includes all tools, documentation and sources needed to make any NPWR based product an immediate success. NPWR is factory configured with a Flash ROM disk running Linux to ensure expedited product development.

"OEMs can use NPWR to build NAS, Mail Servers, Firewalls, Routers and Web Servers" said Mark Murray, president of Team ASA. "Our customers can take the NPWR out of the box and implement a new product in a single day."

Team ASA will begin shipping Dual Gigabit Ethernet versions of the NPWR on November 1st, 2001. Suggested retail pricing for Dual Gigabit Ethernet at the following speeds is as follows, 400 MHz NPWR is $1,295; the 600 MHz NPWR is $1,395 and the pricing for the 733 MHz. NPWR is $1,495.
