Three new embedded computers, all designed and tested for -40°C to +85°C industrial temperature operation, are now available from VersaLogic.
The Lion is a high-performance SBC combining Intel's 7th generation Core (Kaby Lake) processor with a newer PCIe/104 OneBank expansion interface. The single bank connector is mechanically and electrically compatible with PCIe/104-Express Type 1 and Type 2 modules, and a legacy PCI connector and a high-speed PCIe connector are included. On-board I/O interfaces include USB 3.0, USB 2.0, mini PCIe expansion, TPM, multiple serial interfaces and 8-bits of digital I/O. The Lion (VL-EPMe-42) is available with an embedded i7-7600U, i5-7300U or i3-7100U Kaby Lake processor, providing standard clock rates up to 2.8 GHz, Turbo Boost rates to 3.9 GHz, dual-core CPUs and Hyper-Threading logic allowing up to 4 simultaneous threads to be executed.
The Blackbird is a compact, rugged x86 type board-level embedded computer engineered and tested to meet military and medical requirements. Skylake processor options include quad- and dual-core CPUs along with hyper-threading logic allowing up to 8 simultaneous threads to be executed. The board features an 8 V to 30 V input voltage range, reverse voltage protection, over voltage protection, RF noise filtering and transient voltage protection. Supplied fully assembled and tested with a heat plate, the EPU embedded computer in COM Basic format is MIL-STD-202G compliant for shock and vibration. The Blackbird (VL-EPU-4562) is priced starting at $2,076 for the Core i5 model with 16 GB RAM.
The Viper is a low power, high-performance SBC combining Intel's advanced 4th generation E3800 Atom Bay Trail processor, featuring quad-, dual- and single-core processor options with clock rates up to 1.9 GHz and a traditional PC/104-Plus expansion interface. A full complement of on-board I/O interfaces include USB 3.0, mini PCIe expansion sockets, TPM chip, A/D, D/A and 32-bits of digital I/O. Built on the EBX form factor, the SBC includes legacy ISA and PCI connectors. The Viper (VL-EBX-38) is priced starting at $980 in OEM quantities.
