Relisys RWT205CE: Hardware 




lhs back

The underlying hardware is a Teco TR3230F. It is also marketed as an Itium 2920 from a French Company, Impact Technologies. My example was manufactured in March 2005.


The basic specs are:

SiS 550
64Mb (max 512Mb?)
   Max resolution
16000 x 1200 16-bit colour
2 x USB1.1
Kybd & mouse
W x H x D15.5cm x 24cm x 5cm

The Relisys RWT205CE runs Windows CE Pro 5. The unit was manufactured in March 2005. It's manufactured by Teco. and has a model number of TR3230. Back in 2011 Teco's website showed a TR3541 which is very close in physical appearance.

I photographed this in the vertical position (despite the orientation of the logo) as a label on the side of the unit suggests it should be used in this orientation.

Power Supply

The Relisys RWT205CE has in internal power supply with a conventional IEC-style mains connector.

Flash: The Flash memory in the Relisys is a Compact Flash card - which makes it trivial to replace with a larger card and alternative operating system. It can be seen at the top left in the picture.

Ram: The RAM is a conventional 64Mb PC-133 144-pin SO-DIMM. As you can see in the photograph I have replaced this with a 256MB SO-DIMM with no problems. I do not know what the maximum is that the socket supports but the literature on the Itium 2920 gives it as 256MB.

IDE: Looking at the circuit board you can see to the right of the CF card a 40-pin IDE connector. I have not tried to use this as I already have various flavours of Linux pre-installed on Compact Flash cards. However Mario from Romania has connected a CDROM drive to it and booted a variety of operating systems including Windows 95, 98, ME and 2k.

Serial: Behind the keyboard and mouse sockets are three 10-pin sockets. Checking with a meter I found -9V on some of the pins. The dmesg output from Puppy shows that four serial ports were found so I guess these are the three additional serial ports.

PCMCIA: There is a PCMIA slot.

There is a small riser card (on the left in the photo) and space for a single pci card to be be fitted.
