Rugged small-form-factor embedded computing board for military applications introduced by VersaLogic

EUGENE, Ore., 30 Aug. 2012. VersaLogic Corp. in Eugene, Ore., is introducing the Falcon small-form-factor rugged embedded computing board in the new Embedded Processing Unit (EPU) format for military embedded systems and medical applications that require small, lightweight embedded systems.

The Falcon single-board computer is roughly the size of a credit card and less than one inch thick. Its EPU form factor combines processor, memory, video, and system I/O, and combines the Intel Atom E6x0T low-power processor.

The EPU form factor is designed to withstand extreme temperature, impact, and vibration. The computer board operates in temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius, and meets MIL-STD-202G specifications to withstand high impact and vibration.

Soldered-on RAM, fanless cooling, and latching Ethernet, SATA, and main I/O connectors provide additional ruggedization for use in harsh environments. Falcon is available as an IPC-A-610 class 2 assembly. class 3 assembly is optional for situations where extreme reliability is required.

The Falcon features an Intel Atom E6x0T processor which is optimized for performance/power consumption balance. It provides compatibility with a broad range of x86 application development tools. Integrated graphics provide hardware-accelerated MPEG-4/H.264 and MPEG-2 video encoding and decoding. It includes a standard LVDS video output for flat-panel displays.

On-board I/O includes Gigabit Ethernet with network boot capability, four USB 2.0 ports, four serial ports, and Intel High-Definition Audio (HDA). A SATA 3-gigabyte-per-second interface supports high-capacity rotating or solid-state drives.

Dual microSD sockets and a Mini PCI Express socket with mSATA capability provide flexible solid-state drive options. Systems can be enhanced by using the Mini PCI Express socket with plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet, Firewire, and other mini cards.

The Falcon supports an optional Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip for applications that require enhanced hardware-level security functions. The Falcon has an input voltage range of eight to 17 volts, and is compatible with 12-volt automotive type power systems.
