4/5/2004 - WinSystems announces its support for EPIC, the new next-generation, 4.5 x 6.5-inch, embedded single board computer platform for the industrial market. This mid-sized platform is larger than a 3.6- x 3.8-inch PC/104 module yet smaller than 5.75- x 8.0-inch EBX board. It is big enough to support the larger, more power CPUs with their fans and heatsinks as well as industry standard I/O connectors for real-world interfaces. Applications for EPIC include test equipment, medical instruments, communications devices, transportation systems, security, military/COTS, data loggers, robotics, semiconductor manufacturing instruments, and industrial control systems. The specification and further details are located at www.epic-sbc.org.
"WinSystems drew upon our 23 years of experience in the embedded systems market as we worked with the four other companies to define this new specification," said Robert Burckle, Vice-President of WinSystems. "We are pleased at the spirit of cooperation and short time period required to define and launch this new embedded SBC standard. EPIC is needed for embedded computing and this new platform provides a bridge to the future. Expect to see rugged, industrial-grade EPIC SBCs from WinSystems soon."
