VersaLogic expands its Arm-based Embedded Computer Line
(Tualatin, OR — March 4, 2020) VersaLogic Corporation added a new model to its “Swordtail” product family, the latest in their line of production-ready Arm®-based embedded computers.
Available with either the NXP i.MX6 Quad (quad core), or the i.MX6 DualLite (dual core) processors, the Swordtail includes on-board Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a socket for plug-in cellular radios. The new model adds on-board eMMC storage functionality. At home in hostile environments, the compact 95 x 95 mm computer board is rated for operation at full industrial temperature range (-40° to +85°C).
The new model includes soldered-down 8 GB eMMC Flash as a bootable on-board storage medium. This is in addition to the micro-SD socket included on all models in the family.
“Unlike Arm-based modules, VersaLogic’s Swordtail is a complete board-level computer,” said Len Crane, President VersaLogic Corp. “It does not require additional carrier cards, compion boards, connector break-out boards, or other add-ons to function. It is a production-ready embedded computer.”
Swordtail boards are ideal for transmitting maintenance or diagnostic information without the need for a wired connection. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios are included on board, and a NimbleLink Skywire™ socket supports a wide range of cellular and wireless plug-ins.
The Swordtail embedded computer boards are ready for off-the-shelf deployment into demanding industrial, smart city, and transportation applications requiring rugged, long-life, power efficient, wide temperature solutions.
All Swordtail models feature soldered-on memory and a variety of I/O ports, including wireless interfaces, Gigabit Ethernet with network boot capability, USB 2.0, serial I/O (RS-232), CAN Bus, and I2C interface. In addition, MCOTS versions can accommodate up to 32 GB of on-board flash storage.
Designed and tested for industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) operation, VersaLogic’s Swordtail also meets MIL-STD-202H specifications for impact and vibration. Engineered and validated for ruggedness, Swordtail excels in unforgiving environments.
Like other VersaLogic products, the Swordtail is designed for long-term availability (10+ year production lifecycle).
