Diamond Systems introduced the Opal-MM-1616 PC/104 I/O module. The Opal-MM-1616 board features 16 unidirectional optoisolated inputs and 16 relay outputs. It is supported by Diamond’s Universal Driver software library. The Universal Driver software is a high-level programming library for all of Diamond’s data acquisition products. The OPMM-1616-XT is ideal for industrial automation, transportation, energy, instrumentation, aerospace, military, and medical markets and applications. The Opal-MM-1616-XT Optoisolated Input and Relay Output PC/104 Module is available now for $195.
Diamond Systems introduced the Aurora single board computer (SBC) for small form factor (SFF) embedded computing. The Aurora single board computer features the Intel 1.6GHz Atom Z530 processor, SODIMM RAM (up to 2GB), Gigabit Ethernet, USB Flashdisk, Serial ATA (SATA), four RS-232 serial ports (two with RS-422/485 capability), four USB 2.0 ports, PS/2 keyboard and mouse, and both SUMIT-A and PC/104 ISA bus expansion. Diamond Aurora SBC samples are shipping within 30 days. Aurora pricing in OEM volumes starts in the upper $400s.
A new embedded system I/O expansion standard, originated by Diamond Systems, will be launched at Embedded World 2010 in Nuremberg, Germany on March 2, 2010. The new mezzanine-style standard defines a highly compact, low cost way to add application-oriented capabilities to single-board computers (SBCs), computer-on-module (COM) baseboards, and fully-custom embedded electronics. The new I/O expansion standard enable engineers to add application-specific capabilities to SBCs and COM baseboards without adding height to the system.
