VersaLogic announces EPIC format "Iguana" SBC with Intel Atom processor

Iguana (VL-EPIC-25) - EPIC SBC with Intel Atom D525 and D425 processorsEugene, OR — Mar. 27, 2012 — VersaLogic Corp., an Oregon-based embedded computer company, today announced the Iguana, a low-power / high-performance EPIC™ format single board computer (SBC) featuring extensive on-board I/O.

Driven by Intel® Atom™ D525 and Atom D425 processors, the Iguana provides high-performance single- or dual-core processing with low power requirements (9W to 12W typical). Enhanced low-power states allow designers to further minimize overall power consumption.

Based on the industry-standard EPIC form factor (4.5 x 6.5 inches), this SBC is an excellent solution for embedded applications with substantial I/O requirements.

"The Iguana was designed as a full-featured SBC for challenging environments," said Len Crane, President of VersaLogic. "With 1.8 GHz versions that are single or dual core, fanless or fanned, standard or industrial temp., and lots of on-board I/O, this is a rugged workhorse board."

The Iguana features Intel Atom D525 (dual core) and D425 (single core) processors for 1.8 GHz performance with low power consumption. Enhanced low-power states allow designers to further minimize overall power consumption.

For high-performance graphics applications, the Iguana provides integrated support for DirectX 9c, OpenGL 1.5, MPEG-2 decoding, and adaptive interlacing. A single-channel LVDS flat panel interface and an analog VGA video interface support multiple display modes. An optional adapter supports dual VGA operation.

The Iguana features on-board data acquisition ports including include eight analog inputs, four analog outputs, and sixteen digital I/O lines. System I/O includes dual Gigabit Ethernet with network boot capability, up to 2 GB DDR3 RAM, six USB host ports, four serial ports, SATA interface with support for two devices, and HD audio. Removable flash storage is provided via CompactFlash socket, eUSB interface, and a PCI Express Mini Card socket. The PCI Express Mini Card socket also accommodates plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet channels, and other mini expansion cards.

An industry-standard PC/104-Plus™ expansion site provides plug-in access to a wide variety of expansion modules from numerous vendors. The SPX expansion interface provides additional plug-in expansion for low-cost analog, digital, and CANbus I/O.

Available in both standard (0º to +60ºC) and industrial temperature (-40º to +85ºC) versions, the rugged Iguana boards meet MIL-STD-202G specifications for mechanical shock and vibration. Optional latching Ethernet connectors provide additional ruggedization for use in extremely harsh environments. Transient voltage suppression (TVS) devices on critical I/O ports provide enhanced electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for the system.

The Iguana features an American Megatrends (AMI) UEFI BIOS with OEM enhancements. The field-reprogrammable BIOS supports custom defaults, USB booting, and other application functions. Iguana is compatible with a variety of popular x86 operating systems including Windows, Windows Embedded, Linux, VxWorks, and QNX.

This new product is RoHS compliant, manufactured to IPC-A-610 Class 2 standards, and includes VersaLogic's 5+ year production life guarantee. The Iguana is customizable, even in low OEM quantities. Customization options include latching Ethernet headers, pass-through PCI and ISA connectors, bolt-on heat plate, conformal coating, revision locks, custom labeling, customized testing and screening, etc.

The Iguana SBC will be available from stock starting in May of 2012. Pricing starts at $680 in OEM quantities. Contact Sales@VersaLogic.com or visit www.VersaLogic.com for more information.
