By: STW Technic
STW’s new EB07 Expansion Board brings the latest in off highway telematics to electronic controllers without the need for modems. The EB07 is the latest in STW’s suite of products for the smart connected off-highway vehicle.
The Eb07 expansion board has a 400 MHz PowerPC micro-processor with a full Linux operating system environment. The advantage of having a fully capable Linux environment within an off-highway controller cannot be exaggerated.
The EB07 also has 1GB of flash memory, an Ethernet port, a CAN port, a serial port (RS-232) and a USB port, as well as a real-time clock.
There are stand-alone software products that may be run on a controller with the Eb07 such as software updates for the ESX-3XL or ESX-3XM through the USB port (the update hex file is on a USB flash drive) or the Vehicle Data System (STW’s web-based telematics package for data logging and real-time diagnostics)
STW offers many important functions integrated into the controller software package such as logging, networking, remote procedure calls (RPCs), file management and streaming. More information on the EB07 is available at: http://www.stw-
Says Bob Geiger, President, STW Technic ‘The Eb07 Linux environment provides a platform for adding new capabilities that will certainly become necessary in the rapidly evolving world of smart, connected vehicles. Technologies and packages necessary for security, encryption, new communication protocols, autonomy, analysis, data mining and a host of other cutting edge applications that will soon become standard fare are all readily available and easily implementable in the Linux environment’
