VersaLogic embeds performance, security and resilience in new embedded computer
By: VersaLogic Corporation
Named "Owl", it features error correcting memory combined with Intel®'s latest 5th generation Apollo Lake processors (dual or quad core). The Owl also includes TPM 2.0 hardware security, on-board power conditioning, Mini PCIe expansion sockets, and analog input ports, along with standard USB and Ethernet I/O ports.
Resilient and on-guard
"The Owl features soldered-down ECC (error correcting) memory to enhance resilience to shock and vibration, and guard against single-bit errors such as those that are likely to occur at higher altitudes," said Len Crane, VersaLogic's President. It also features on-board power conditioning which accepts 8 to 30 VDC input. This accommodates fixed and mobile 12 and 24 volt systems. Additional protection is provided against damaging transient voltages, over voltage, reverse voltage, and RF intrusion.
Small & tough
Within its 95 x 95 x 29 mm package, the Owl is an ideal balance of functionality and size for space-limited applications such as in unmanned vehicles on land, underwater, or in the air. The Owl is designed and tested for full industrial temperature (-40º to +85ºC) operation and meets MIL-STD-202H specifications for shock and vibration.
The built-in TPM 2.0 security chip provides hardware-level security for applications that require secure log-ins, encrypted data storage, protected files, etc.
On-board I/O includes dual Gigabit Ethernet, one USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports, eight analog inputs, eight digital I/O ports, and four serial ports. A SATA interface, eMMC Flash, mSATA slot, and a microSD socket provide a range of data storage options. Dual Mini PCIe sockets accommodate plug-in A/D, Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet, FireWire, and other mini cards.
The Owl is designed from the ground up for long-term availability (10+ year typical production lifecycle).
Modifications to the off-the-shelf product are available for the Owl, even in low OEM quantities. Modifications include conformal coating, revision locks, custom labeling, customized testing and screening, etc.
