Stackable Options

The 2009 Embedded Systems Conference was the host for a range of stackable options using new standards such as SUMIT and StackableUSB. The 420-by-372 USB3201 LCD from Micro/Sys is designed to work with StackableUSB boards. It has 4 Mbits of serial flash on board plus an optional touch screen. Versalogic’s Ocelot single-board computer with a 1.6-GHz Atom processor sports SUMIT-104 connectors. The PC/104 ISA connector provides legacy support while the SUMIT connectors provide access to PCI Express in addition to LPC, USB, SPI, and I2C. The SPX connector provides cable access to SPI devices. Peripherals include integrated video, 1-Gbit Ethernet, HD audio, and four serial ports plus 2 Gbytes of DDR2 memory.
