The SBC1670 from Micro/sys combines a flat panel display interface with a fast, yet low-power 524 MHz StrongARM-derived Intel PXA270 in a PC/104 (3.55" x 3.775") footprint that will operate from –40C to +85C.
At the heart of the SBC1670 is the Intel PXA270 processor, with on-chip cache, a
watchdog timer, an SDRAM controller, a CompactFlash interface, and a USB host controller. It includes support for an 800 x 600 color flat panel display, audio output, and debounced keypad input.
In addition, the SBC1670 also features five serial ports and a 10/100BASE-T Ethernet controller to handle a variety of communication needs. Four of the serial ports have RS232 transceivers, while the remaining serial port is configured for RS485 communication.
With 128MB of SDRAM, and a 64MB resident flash array, high-performance control or data communications systems with feature-rich operating systems can be developed as single board solutions. The SBC1670 can boot Linux, Windows CE, and VxWorks from its onboard flash.
If more I/O is needed, the SBC1670 allows expansion through its CompactFlash socket, which supports storage devices and I/O devices, such as Wi-Fi cards. Additionally, the SBC1670 has a 16-bit PC/104 bus interface, which allows
access to numerous off-the-shelf boards such as modems, analog I/O, or digital I/O.
In its stackthrough version, the SBC1670 is ideal for plugging into a custom OEM I/O card. A free development kit is provided that includes cables, sample software, and full documentation.
The basic SBC1670 starts at $495 in single quantity. An industrial temperature (-40C to +85C) version is also available starting at $575.
