VersaLogic: EBX embedded computer with Intel BayTrail processor

VersaLogic is shipping the “Viper”— a rugged EBX-format single board computer. It features extensive I/O capabilities, power consumption of only 6 watts (typical), and fanless operation over the full industrial temperature range. The Viper board leverages Intel’s E3800 BayTrail System on Chip (SoC) and provides capabilities such as on-board TPM security chip, USB 3.0 port, 16 GB RAM capacity, flexible voltage input (5V or a wide input 9 to 15V). Based on the industry-standard EBX form factor (5.75 x 8 inches), it is an excellent solution for industrial and medical applications that need an EBX-format solution, considerable on-board I/O, and advanced processing power.

The Viper features built-in data acquisition ports with eight 12-bit analog inputs, four 12-bit analog outputs, thirtytwo digital I/O lines, and three general purpose timers. Other on-board I/O includes a USB 3.0 port, six USB 2.0 ports, dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet, and four serial ports. Dual SATA II interfaces support high-capacity rotating or solid-state drives.

Viper supports dual Mini DisplayPort outputs as well as legacy VGA and single/dual-channel LVDS display outputs. Intel’s advanced Gen 7 HD graphics engine provides outstanding graphics performance and is capable of supporting two simultaneous 1080p video streams. On-board hardware acceleration is available for encode/ decode of H.264, MVC, VP8, VC1/WMV9, and other standards. The graphics engine also supports dual display support, DirectX 11, Open GL 4.0, full HD video playback, and resolution up to 2560 x 1440 @ 60Hz.
