MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., 30 March 2015. Diamond Systems Corp. in Mountain View, Calif., is introducing the rugged ARIES PC/104-Plus single-board computer for military, vehicle, industrial, and medical applications.

Based on the Intel E3800 Bay Trail processor family, the Aries embedded computing board is designed in the PC/104-Plus form factor with wings measuring 4.5 by 4 inches.

The board is available configurations including the E3845 1.91 GHz quad core processor and the E3826 1.46 GHz dual core processor, with choice of 2 gigabytes or 4 gigabytes soldered memory.

Dual independent displays are supported, with connections for dual channel 24-bit LVDS LCD, VGA, DisplayPort, and HDMI. Available PC I/O includes 3 USB 2.0 ports (1 can operate as USB 3.0), 4 RS-232/422/485 ports with programmable configuration, dual Gigabit Ethernet, and a SATA port that supports both on-board SATA DOM and off-board SATA devices.

The optional integrated data acquisition includes 16 16-bit A/D channels with 250 KHz sample rate, 4 16-bit D/A channels with voltage and current outputs, a programmable waveform generator, and 22 programmable digital I/O lines, all supported by Diamond’s free, Universal Driver data acquisition programming library. An interactive graphical control panel for Windows and Linux is provided.

Aries supports stackable I/O expansion with PC/104 (ISA) and PC/104-Plus (ISA + PCI) I/O modules. Aries also provides a dual-use PCI Express MiniCard / mSATA socket for additional I/O expansion. PCI Express MiniCard I/O modules with WiFi, Ethernet, analog I/O, digital I/O, and CAN are available from Diamond Systems and other vendors, enabling compact expandability without increasing the total height of the system.

Aries’ built-in heat spreader removes heat to the system enclosure. The Aries computer board family operates in temperatures from -40 to 85 Celsius.
