WinSystems introduces a line of multi-core Intel Atom E3800 embedded computers designed to operate from -40°C to +85°C. The feature-rich SBC35-CC405 series of embedded PCs include onboard USB, Gigabit Ethernet, serial ports, and additional I/O expansion through MiniPCIe and IO60 connectors. A low-profile thermal solution creates a rugged platform base that protects the PCB assembly and provides convenient four-point mounting. These off-the-shelf industrial computers are designed for rugged embedded applications requiring extended temperature operation, long-term availability, and provide a wide variety of I/O expansion options to meet unique project requirements.
The SBC35-CC405 series features the latest generation Intel Atom E3800 family of processors in an industry standard 3.5-inch SBC format COM Express carrier. The processor is integrated using a Type 6 COM Express module supporting a quad-core, dual-core or single-core processor and includes up to 8GB of DDR3L SDRAM. The Intel Atom E3800 family delivers numerous enhancements over previous-generation Intel Atom processors including improvements in computational performance, energy efficiency, power management, virtualization and security, while maintaining a low thermal design power (TDP) range of 5W to 10W. The Intel Generation 7 based graphics engine supports up to two simultaneously active displays with interfaces available for analog VGA, DisplayPort 1.1 and LVDS connections. For networking and communications, the SBC35-CC405 includes two Intel I210 Gigabit Ethernet controllers with IEEE® 1588 time-stamping and 10/100/1000 Mb/s multi-speed operation.
Four Type A connectors support three USB 2.0 channels and one high-speed USB 3.0 channel. Two serial ports support RS-232/422/485 interface levels with clock options up to 20Mbps in the RS-422/485 mode and up to 1Mbps in the RS-232 mode. The SBC35-CC405 series also includes two MiniPCIe connectors and one IO60 connector to allow additional I/O expansion. Both of the MiniPCIe connectors support half-length and full-length cards with screw-down mounting for improved shock and vibration durability. One MiniPCIe connector also supports bootable mSATA solid state disks while the other includes USB. The IO60 connector provides access to the I2C, SPI, PWM, and UART signals allowing a simple interface to sensors, data acquisition, and other low speed I/O devices. WinSystems offers off-the-shelf IO60 modules and custom designed modules for OEM applications. This variety of expansion options makes the SBC35-CC405 one of the most expandable 3.5-inch SBC form factor designs currently on the market.
For additional flexibility and ease of system integration, the SBC35-CC405 is designed to operate over a wide input power range from 10-50V DC. Enclosures, power supplies, and configuration services are available for turn-key OEM embedded computing platforms. Linux, Windows®, and other x86 operating systems can be booted from the CFast, mSATA, SATA, or USB interfaces, providing flexible data storage options. WinSystems provides drivers for Linux and Windows 7/8 as well as pre-configured embedded operating systems.
