Parvus Corp.’s new OrbiTrak GSM is a modular PC/104 computer board is designed for intelligent vehicle and airborne computing systems requiring worldwide GSM/GPRS roaming combined with precise GPS positioning.
The OrbiTrak GSM combines wireless tri-band GSM/GPRS connectivity with a low-power 12-channel parallel-tracking GPS receiver in one highly integrated embedded module. Measuring 3.550 x 3.775”, this hardened telematics solution is built to resist high mechanical stress, thermal shock and extended temperature operation.
The product also features a 4-channel 16C550 UART with two RS-232 serial ports free for other devices. Board configuration is done using FlexiSet EEPROM board settings, which eliminates banks of interrupts and base address jumpers. A 16-bit wide programmable digital I/O is provided to interface with other low-power digital devices, along with two automotive level digital inputs to connect to any 12V or 24V digital signals.
The GPS/GSM version of the OrbiTrak GSM is now in stock and priced at $398/each in volume orders of 100 units or more. The GSM only version (from $298 each/100) is expected to be available in September.
