TUALATIN, Ore. – VersaLogic Corp. in Tualatin, Ore., is introducing the rugged COM Express VL-EPU-4460 Condor high-performance embedded computer with trusted computing features and the Intel 6th generation Skylake Core processor for military and industrial applications.

The Condor's on-board TPM security chip trusted computing feature can lock out unauthorized hardware and software access. It provides a secure root of trust. Additional security is through built-in Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) instructions.

The Condor measures 95 by 95 by 37 millimeters and provides as much as six times the processing power of Intel's Bay Trail processors, while keeping power consumption as low as 15 Watts.

The Condor is designed and tested to operate in industrial temperatures of -40 to 85 degrees Celsius, and meets MIL-STD-202G specifications to withstand high impact and vibration.

Condor is designed around COM Express form factors, but are board-level computers. They provide separate CPU and I/O modules, and are delivered as assembled and tested units. It comes with a heat plate, and is ready to bolt into a system.

On-board I/O includes two Gigabit Ethernet ports with network boot, two USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 host ports, and two serial ports. One SATA III interface supports high-capacity rotating or solid-state drives. Eight digital I/O lines, I2C, and SPI also are available.

Two Mini PCI Express sockets (one with mSATA capabilities) provide flexible solid-state drive (SSD) options. Systems can be enhanced by leveraging the Mini PCI Express sockets with plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet, Firewire, and other mini cards.

For additional reliability, the Condor includes on-board power conditioning which accepts an input of 8 to 30 volts. For additional protection, the conditioner includes reverse-voltage and over-voltage protections.

The Condor is in stock at VersaLogic Corp. and Digi-Key Corp. For more information contact VersaLogic online at www.versalogic.com.
