Developed by VersaLogic, the Copperhead embedded SBC is powered by a 3rd Generation Intel Core processor. Its performance level, combined with a high-speed PCIe expansion site, enables the integration of complex high-bandwidth functions, such as Digital Signal Processing and video processing. Based on the industry-standard EBX format (5.75 x 8 inches), Copperhead’s numerous next-generation I/O interfaces, thermal solutions, and real-world connectors work to remove system design limitations. Various Copperhead models support high-performance dual- or quad-core processing, up to 16 GB DDR3 RAM, and flexible video output with support for three independent displays. The Copperhead features on-board data acquisition via sixteen analog inputs, eight analog outputs, and sixteen digital I/O lines. Dual SATA 3 and SATA 6 interfaces support Intel Rapid Storage Manager with RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 capabilities. A Mini PCIe socket accommodates plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, and Ethernet channels. Available in both standard and industrial temperature versions, the board meets MIL-STD-202G specifications for mechanical shock and vibration. The high tolerance +12V power input allows the board to operate with power ranging from 9 to 15 volts. The Copperhead SBC will be available from stock in Q4 of 2012.
