EUGENE, Ore., 10 April 2012. VersaLogic Corp. in Eugene, Ore., is introducing the Iguana low-power EPIC-form-factor single-board computer powered by the dual-core Intel Atom D525 and single-core Atom D425 processors for embedded computing applications with substantial I/O requirements that draw low power in the range of 9 to 12 Watts.
The rugged single-board computer is available in versions for military embedded systems that operate in -40 to 85 degrees Celsius and meet MIL-STD-202G for shock and vibration. Optional rugged latching Ethernet connectors are for extremely harsh environments. Transient voltage suppression (TVS) devices on critical I/O ports provide enhanced electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection.
For graphics performance the Iguana supports DirectX 9c, OpenGL 1.5, MPEG-2 decoding, and adaptive interlacing. A single-channel LVDS flat panel interface and an analog VGA video interface support several display modes. An optional adapter supports dual VGA operation.
The EPIC form factor, which measures 4.5 by 6.5 inches, is an industry standard for embedded computing that aims at an industrial-quality computer board sized between the PC/104-Plus and EBX standards. EPIC, which stands for Embedded Platform Industrial Computing, supports PC/104 and PC/104-Plus expansion, as well as high speed serial buses like PCI Express.
The Iguana has eight analog inputs, four analog outputs, and 16 digital I/O lines. System I/O includes dual Gigabit Ethernet with network boot capability, as much as two gigabytes DDR3 RAM, six USB host ports, four serial ports, SATA interface with support for two devices, and HD audio.
Removable flash storage is provided via CompactFlash socket, eUSB interface, and a PCI Express Mini Card socket. The PCI Express Mini Card socket also accommodates plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet channels, and other mini expansion cards.
A PC/104-Plus expansion site provides plug-in access to a wide variety of expansion modules. The SPX expansion interface provides additional plug-in expansion for low-cost analog, digital, and CANbus I/O.
The Iguana features an American Megatrends (AMI) UEFI BIOS with OEM enhancements. The field-reprogrammable BIOS supports custom defaults, USB booting, and other application functions. Software support includes Windows, Windows Embedded, Linux, VxWorks, and QNX.
This new product is RoHS compliant, and is customizable, even in low OEM quantities. Customization options include latching Ethernet headers, pass-through PCI and ISA connectors, bolt-on heat plate, conformal coating, revision locks, custom labeling, and customized testing and screening.
