San Jose, California — At the Embedded Systems Conference today, VersaLogic Corp., a Eugene, Oregon-based manufacturer of embedded computer products, announced its support for the new SUMIT™ (Stackable Unified Module Interconnect Technology) interface. Per the recently adopted specifications from the Small Form Factor Special Interest Group (SFF-SIG), VersaLogic's products feature a wide variety of interface signals on the SUMIT connector. This simplifies the task of interfacing with the system and designing custom I/O modules. The signals available on VersaLogic's CPU boards include PCI Express lanes, low speed signals such as LPC and SPI, and legacy USB and ISA signals. The new SUMIT products, which are scheduled to be available Q4 of 2009, include:
A dual core single board computer (SBC) on a SUMIT-EPIC™ platform. The Komodo features a very high performance Intel® Core™2 Duo processor, dual Gigabit Ethernet, and high performance integrated video. The 4.5" x 6.5" (115 mm x 165 mm) board also includes a MiniBlade™ flash drive socket. SiliconSystems' MiniBlade is a rugged postage-stamp sized removable solid-state drive in a locking socket. The MiniBlade standard was recently approved by the SFF-SIG.
An Intel Atom™ based embedded computer in a SUMIT-104 format. The Ocelot uses the latest energy-saving industrial temperature Atom version to provide high performance (1.6 GHz) at very low power (7 Watts). This PC/104™-sized board, at only 3.6" x 3.8" (90 mm x 96 mm), is compatible with most SUMIT and PC/104 expansion boards and will be available in both standard (0º to +60ºC) and extended (-40º to +85ºC) temperature versions.
A SUMIT-104 expansion board that provides two Gigabit Ethernet ports. It features extended (-40º to +85ºC) temperature operation and an on-board PCIe Mini Card socket that will support wireless Ethernet and other add-on cards.
A SUMIT-104 power supply card. This in-stack power supply card provides up to 50W output from 9 to 40V DC input. It is compatible with the industry standard PC/104 format (3.6" x 3.8" / 90 mm x 96 mm) and provides power through both the SUMIT and ISA connectors.
A SUMIT-104 serial interface module. This PC/104 format board provides COM port expansion for SUMIT systems.
"Our commitment to these new SUMIT designs underscores our belief in the flexibility and cost-effectiveness of the SUMIT standard," stated Len Crane, VersaLogic's President. "The SUMIT interface pushes our familiar form factors, EBX, EPIC, and PC/104 into the future, while allowing us to retain an ISA connector for legacy support. It's an ideal combination," he continued.
The rugged SUMIT Series products are ideally suited for military/aerospace, homeland security and industrial automation applications. They are scheduled to be available in production quantities Q4 of 2009.
