The COMX-430 and COMX-440 COM Express modules, from Emerson Network Power, are small form factor single board computers. The COMX-430 and COMX-440 SBCs feature the Intel Atom D410/D510 processors at 1.66 GHz coupled with up to 4GB DDR2 memory. The boards are ideal for industrial control, kiosks, clinical display systems, panel PCs, and diagnostic and test equipment. The COMX-430 and COMX-440 support Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 7 and Fedora 12 Linux operating systems.
The FeaturePak I/O module standard provides a compact and low-cost method of adding I/O to board-level embedded computers. FeaturePaks can be used as snap-in customization modules for commercial, off-the-shelf single-board computers (SBCs) and computer-on-module (COM) baseboards, or as functional blocks on fully-custom embedded electronics. FeaturePak modules interface to the host system via a single low-cost, high-density, 230-pin connector, which carries PCI Express, USB, I2C, and several other host-interface signals, plus up to 100 points of application I/O per module. The host interface is CPU agnostic and is compatible with both Intel- and RISC-architecture systems. The modules can easily be integrated into embedded designs along with Qseven, COM Express, SUMIT, PCI/104-Express, EBX, and EPIC.
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.
GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the 6U VME VR12, the rugged 6U CompactPCI CR12, and the 6U VME XVB601 single board computers (SBC). The three new single board computers feature Intel Core i7 processor technology operating at up to 2.53 GHz. The 6U VME VR12, the rugged 6U CompactPCI CR12, and the 6U VME XVB601 SBCs are ideal for demanding applications such as radar processing and flight control as well as in general purpose industrial and commercial system-level applications. All three boards are available to lead customers immediately. General commercial availability of the XVB601 is planned for March 2010, with the VR12 and CR12 planned to follow in the second quarter of the year.
The Wind River VxWorks MILS Platform 2.0 is now available on GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms’s VPXtreme3 SBC310 3U VPX, VPXtreme6 SBC610 6U VPX, and PowerXtreme PPC9A 6U VMEbus single board computers. The MILS architecture enables applications with different data security levels, or data from different domains, to co-exist securely on a single hardware platform. The availability of VxWorks MILS Platform on GE Fanuc’s SBCs enables complex, sensitive, highly secure systems to be deployed in applications and environments where small size, low weight, and minimal power consumption are prerequisites.
