RISC Single Board Computer Offers Unmatched I/O and Windows CE 6.0

April 1, 2009
The SBC-R9 single board computer delivers RISC computing power combined with a wealth of I/O features in a compact footprint. The design uses the latest embedded software environment and is based on the Atmel AT91SAM9263 microcontroller boasting a 32-bit ARM instruction set for maximum performance. The SBC-R9 is the perfect platform for embedded applications requiring small size, wide operating temperature range, and flexible I/O connectivity. Available with up to 256MB RAM and 256MB Flash memory, the unmatched I/O features of the SBC-R9 extend the board’s possible uses beyond traditional RISC applications. Standard I/O includes Ethernet, serial, USB, CAN Bus, digital and analog interface. System designers can directly drive TFT/STN LCDs from the on-board video controller, and the board also includes a resistive touchscreen controller, making it perfect for human-machine interface applications. To provide the fastest time to market, the Windows CE 6.0 BSP binary and low-level drivers for system I/O are included. Additionally, the SBC-R9 software package is equipped with the Sealevel Talos I/O Framework, which offers a high-level object-oriented .NET Compact Framework (CF) device interface. The Talos interface provides an I/O point abstraction layer with built-in support for the specific needs of analog and digital I/O such as gain control and debouncing. Measuring just 7.5” x 5.0” in size, the SBC-R9 is small enough to fit in most embedded applications and is rated for a full -40°C – +85°C operating temperature range. The SBC-R9 is priced from $599.00, and a QuickStart Development Kit is available. For applications with specialized hardware requirements, developers can use the SBC-R9 as a platform for application development while Sealevel designs a customized target system specific for the user’s application requirements.• CPU Speed 180MHz • CPU Type Atmel ARM9 • Memory 64MB • SDRAM 64MB (256MB Max) • Flash Memory 256MB • Serial Ports (4) RS-232/422/485 • Dedicated RS-485 • USB 2.0 Ports (1) USB Device (Type B) • USB Host (Type A) • Max. 12M bps • Networking (1) 10/100 BaseT Ethernet • Max Video Max. 2048 x 2048 • CAN Bus (1) CAN 2.0b Interface • Digital I/O (8) Optically Isolated Inputs • (8) Open-Collector Outputs (2 w/ PWM) • Analog I/O (8) 12-Bit Analog Inputs • Counters (2) 32-Bit Quadrature Counters • Display Support 24-Bit TFT LCD Controller • 16-Bit Color (TFT, STN Modes) • Touchscreen Support 5-Wire Resistive Interface • Power Requirement 7-30 VDC @ 10W Max. • (2.5W Nominal) • Operating Temperature -40 - +85C • Storage Temperature -60 - +150C • Humidity Range 10 - 90% R.H. • Dimensions 7.3 (L) x 4.9 (W) x 0.75 (H) • Approximate Weight ~1 lbs
