WinSystems’ SBC integrates PCI Express with PC/104

DESIGN West 2012, SAN JOSE, USA: WinSystems announced the PXM-C388-S, a PC/104-compatible single board computer (SBC) powered by an Intel 1.66 GHz Atom processor.

This new SBC adds the SUMIT (Stackable Unified Modular Interconnect Technology) I/O expansion connector onto a PC/104 expandable SBC. This combination provides designers easy I/O expansion for the thousands of standard and custom designed PC/104 modules currently available worldwide plus enhanced performance and throughput of stackable PCI Express (PCIe) and USB.

The PXM-C388-S processors’ high performance enables designs that need multiple video input data streams and high speed A/D which opens up applications for security, automated inspection of production lines, data acquisition and machine-to-machine communications in a small, rugged form factor.

“This SBC is well suited for directly upgrading existing PC/104-based designs with Intel’s Atom processor family,” said Jerry Winfield, founder and President of WinSystems. “It creates a bridge from the past to the future by blending high-speed serial bus expansion with legacy PC/104 I/O modules so as to strike a balance of high-integration computing power for existing low and medium complexity applications. For designers that need I/O such as relays, contact closures, digital I/O, and low-to-moderate serial communications using PC/104, this is an upward migration path and a cost-effective solution.”
