Family of Alix boards

There is a nice series of x86 embedded PC boards that one may use for our purpose. It is a whole family of boards with base name Alix that are manufactured by pcengines in Switzerland. Until now we have used the Alix3d2 system board as it contains all interfaces needed for our purpose (RS-232, USB, mini-PCI). One of the main advantages is the x86 architecture that enables easy software development as it doesn't require cross-compilation of data acquisition softwares or other standard tools we use for from the embedded Linux OS running on this device (may be OpenWRT, but can be also other Linux systems).
