Eugene, Ore.VersaLogic Corp. announced an extended temperature version of its Python single board computer (SBC) that features a high reliability design, low-power draw of less than 5W, and a complete range of on-board I/O options.
This version includes VersaLogic's new SPX expansion interface that allows users to easily add a wide-range of low-cost I/O options to the system. The Python boards use AMD's energy-saving LX 800 that consumes less than 1-W of power. With a standard x86 architecture, it can support familiar user interfaces and OS environments.
The extended temperature Python version is designed to operate in environments from -40° to +85°C. Standard on-board features include a 200-pin socket accepting up to 1-Gbyte of 333 MHz DDR RAM, four COM ports, four USB 2.0 ports, dual Ethernet ports, IDE, LPT, digital I/O, analog input, audio I/O, and keyboard/mouse support.
The board also includes integrated SVGA and LVDS flat-panel support with MMX & 3DNow! for video-intensive applications. System expansion is supported by the PC/104-Plus interface (for ISA and PCI add-on modules), and VersaLogic's new SPX interface for simplified I/O expansion. The Python may also be used as a CPU module for a larger system, by plugging it into a proprietary base board that includes specific user I/O circuitry.
Applications include aerospace, homeland security, medical, and industrial systems that require high reliability under harsh environments. Fully RoHS-compliant and designed to meet EU Directive 2002/95/EC, this board is suited for markets in Europe, California, China and other areas where restrictions on the use of hazardous materials in electronic components are in force.
