The Falcon EPU, from VersaLogic, combines processor, memory, video, and system I/O into an extra compact embedded computer. The EPU was engineered to meet the military and medical industries’ requirements for smaller, lighter embedded systems. It combines the Intel Atom E6x0T low power processor, with system interfaces, in a form factor designed to withstand extreme temperature, impact, and vibration. Integrated high-performance graphics provide hardware-accelerated MPEG-4/H.264 and MPEG-2 video encoding and decoding. On-board I/O includes Gigabit Ethernet with network boot capability, four USB 2.0 ports, four serial ports, and Intel HDA. The unit has an input voltage range of 8 V to 17 V and is fully compatible with automotive type power systems. Designed for industrial temperature (-40ºC to +85ºC) operation, the computer meets MIL-STD-202G specifications to withstand high impact and vibration. The Falcon EPU will be available from stock in September of 2012 and pricing starts at $853 for 1 GB RAM models in OEM quantities.
