WinSystems unveils multicore ARM single-board computers

SAN JOSE, Calif., 27 April 2013. WinSystems, a designer and manufacturer of rugged embedded computer modules, is introducing a line of single-board computers (SBCs) based on the Freescale i.MX 6 family of Cortex-A9 multi-core processors. 

The low-power 800 MHz SBC35-C398 SBCs--available with a single-core, dual-core, or quad-core processor--are designed to provide high performance and a rich array of onboard I/O for embedded designs. 

The SBC35-C398 product family features scalable Freescale i.MX 6 processors in the industry-standard 3.5-inch SBC format, 102 x 146 mm.  The i.MX 6 processors use dedicated hardware accelerators to obtain high-performance multimedia at low-power consumption, while having the CPU core relatively free for performing other tasks.

The video engines can drive three simultaneous display interfaces while maintaining communications and control functions. Power can be provided by wide range 10-50V DC input or Power over Ethernet (PoE) to provide flexibility and reduce wiring requirements. 

Industrial I/O options include Gigabit Ethernet with IEEE-1588 support, multiple USB 2.0 channels, multiple serial channels, and dual CAN interfaces. Each of the 24 onboard GPIO lines are tolerant of voltages up to 30 volts DC and configurable for software-enabled interrupts.

The SBC35-C398 series introduces the IO60 expansion connector to allow for additional functionality. The IO60 specification supports I2C, SPI, TTL-UART, and PWM signals allowing stackable expansion through off-the-shelf 72 x 50 mm modules or application-specific designs. 

Linux, Android, Windows Compact 7, and other operating systems can be booted from the CFast, SD/SDIO, or MicroSD sockets providing flexible storage options.

WinSystems has a Linux sample image available at the time of release with Android and Windows Compact 7 due for release by the end of Q2.

The quad core SBC35-C398Q-2-0 will ship in May 2013 at $495. The dual core SBC35-C398DL-2-0 and single core SBC35-C398S-1-0 will ship in June 2013 and are priced at $395 and $295, respectively.
