5/30/2003 - Arcom has announced the launch of a ‘board support package’ Development Kit to support Wind River’s VxWorks 5.x real time operating system (RTOS), the most widely adopted RTOS in the embedded industry. This new Development Kit adds to the wide range of board support packages (BSP) available for the popular 300MHz SBC-GX1 single board computer. Arcom’s Development Kit strategy enables customers to quickly create VxWorks based applications using a reliable reference platform and a production ready product.

The SBC-GX1 VxWorks BSP Development Kit includes a complete BSP to support both VxWorks 5.5 and the multimedia capabilities of Wind® ML 3.0. Using the installation wizard and your standard Tornado® II development tools, you can quickly create a reliable run time operating system image to download into the resident 16Mbyte Flash drive.

The Development Kit includes the 300MHz SBC-GX1 single board computer fitted with 32Mbytes SDRAM and 16Mbytes of Flash memory, PSU, serial and Ethernet cable set, Quickstart Manual and the VxWorks BSP Installation/Development Kit CD. The Development Kit is also available with an optional 6.5” color VGA TFT flat panel and analog resistive touchscreen.

The SBC-GX1 EBX format (5.75” x 8”) single board computer is powered by the popular 300MHz National Semiconductor Geode GX1 processor and is targeted at fan-less systems. This board offers graphics accelerated CRT and TFT flat panel support, 10/100baseTx Ethernet, four serial ports, and expansion via a PCI slot, CompactFlash socket and industry standard PC/104 bus.
