The compact SBC-R9-2100 ARM9 RISC single board computer (SBC) from Sealevel Systems is an application-ready platform for embedded applications requiring small size, wide operating temperature range, and flexible I/O connectivity. Standard I/O includes Ethernet, serial, USB, audio, and digital I/O. For wireless connectivity, an 802.11b/g option is available. The new SBC is based on the 200MIPS Atmel AT91SAM9263 microcontroller boasting a 32-bit ARM instruction set for maximum performance.
Measuring just 4.9” x 3.9” in size, the SBC-R9-2100 is small enough to fit in most embedded applications and is rated for a full -40 to +85C operating temperature range. The SBC-R9-2100 can be powered from any 7-30VDC source, or select from a variety of Sealevel power supply options.
To provide the fastest time to market, the Windows CE 6.0 BSP binary and low-level drivers for system I/O are included. The SBC-R9 software package is equipped with the Sealevel Talos I/O Framework, which offers a high-level, object-oriented .NET Compact Framework (CF) device interface to simplify application development.
A QuickStart development kit is available, which includes the most common accessories. For applications with specialized hardware requirements, developers can use the SBC-R9-2100 as a platform for application development while Sealevel designs a customized target system specific to the user's application requirements.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
