VersaLogic shipping new Arm-based board with wireless I/O
(Tualatin, OR — April 17, 2019)— VersaLogic Corporation is now shipping the “Swordtail”, 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. 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).
Unlike Arm-based “modules”, VersaLogic’s Swordtail is a complete board-level computer. It does not require additional carrier cards, companion boards, connector break-out boards, or other add-ons to function. It is a production-ready product.
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 optional 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.
Both Swordtail models feature soldered-on memory, and a variety of I/O ports, including wireless interfaces, Gigabit Ethernet with network boot capability, two USB 2.0, serial I/O (RS-232), CAN Bus, microSD socket, and I2C interface. In addition, the boards can accommodate up to 32 GB of on-board flash storage.
Designed for COTS and MCOTS users, Swordtail can be modified for specific applications in quantities as low as 100 pieces.
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 typical production lifecycle).
