ESC Boston 2011, BOSTON, USA: WinSystems announced EBC-C384, an EBX-compatible, Intel Atom-based single board computer (SBC).
The EBC-C384 comes with either the Intel Atom single core 1.66GHz N455 or dual core 1.80GHz D525 processor combined with the ICH8M I/O hub controller and a variety of onboard serial and parallel I/O interfaces. The EBC-C384 provides a processor- and I/O-intensive solution that is suitable for rugged embedded applications such as military, medical, factory automation, transportation, smart grid, and security.
The EBC-C384 uses the integrated Intel graphics processor which supports both CRT and LVDS simultaneously. It is ideal for applications requiring multiple display configurations. This SBC’s I/O includes two SATA channels, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, eight USB 2.0 ports, four serial COM channels that support RS-232/422/485, 48 digital I/O lines, and HD audio.
Legacy I/O includes a PS/2 keyboard and mouse controller, LPT port and PATA interface. Also PC/104, PC/104-Plus, and MiniPCI connectors provide additional expansion options with industry standard off-the-shelf or user-designed specialty I/O modules.
Up to 4GB of DDR3 MHz SODIMM system memory can be supported on the dual core D525 and 2GB on the single core N455 version of the EBC-C384. There is also a socket for a CompactFlash (CF) device as well.
The EBC-C384 supports Linux, Windows XP embedded and WES7. It also supports other x86-compatible RTOS such as QNX and VxWorks.
The EBC-C384 is EBX compliant and measures 5.75” x 8.00” (147mm x 203mm). The single core N455 model is fanless, requires +5 volts, and typically draws 2.1 Amps. The dual core D525 typically draws 2.9 Amps and requires a fan.
