Description

The Raven is a compact, rugged board-level embedded computer. It has been engineered and tested to meet the military and medical industries' evolving requirements to develop smaller, lighter, and lower power embedded systems while adhering to stringent regulatory standards. Approximately four inches square and one inch thick, the Raven is a member of the VersaLogic family of small, light, ultra-rugged embedded x86 computers. This embedded computer, equipped with an Intel Atom E38xx Bay Trail processor, is designed to withstand extreme temperature, impact, and vibration.

Available in single-, dual-, and quad-core versions, the Raven provides great performance and I/O features, moderate power consumption (6 to 8W typical depending on model), and a compact package. The Raven provides compatibility with a broad range of standard x86 application development tools for reduced development time.

A wide input voltage range of 8 to 30 volts simplifies system power supply requirements. The Raven is fully compatible with 12 or 24V vehicle applications. In addition, Reverse Voltage Protection, and Over Voltage Protection enhances field durability and reliability.

Designed and tested for industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) operation, the rugged Raven also meets MIL-STD-202G specifications for shock and vibration. Soldered-on RAM and latching SATA, Ethernet, power, and main I/O connectors provide additional ruggedization for use in harsh environments.

Raven is compatible with a variety of popular x86 operating systems including Windows, Linux, and VxWorks.

Product customization is available, even in low OEM quantities. Options include conformal coating, BGA underfill, BIOS/ splash screen configuration, application specific testing, BOM revision locks, custom labeling, etc.

VersaLogic products are designed for use by OEMs working in a variety of market applications: Aerospace, Defense, Energy, Industrial, Security, Medical, Military, Robotics, and Transportation. VersaLogic delivers extremely reliable standard and customized embedded computers backed with unsurpassed service and the highest availability in the market.
