Description

The Sabertooth is a rugged board-level PCIe/104 embedded computer that has a high bandwidth 3-Bank Type 1 expansion interface. This supports the connection of peripherals and compute-offload or graphics processing devices that require up to 16 high speed PCIe lanes such as GPUs, FPGA, or 10 GbE network interfaces.

The Sabertooth's 3-Bank high bandwidth expansion port includes a PCIe Gen 3 x16 bus with bifurcation, four PCIe x1, USB 2.0, and SMB interfaces. The Sabertooth is itself a highly effective edge computer and, with its high bandwidth bus, can be further expanded to add, for example, more I/O, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and GPU capabilities.

Sabertooth is based on Intel's 9th Generation CPU family. Models are available with quad-core i3 or hex-core Xeon-E processors. Featuring Hyper-Threading on Xeon-E equipped models, the Sabertooth is a powerful computing platform. In addition to its powerful processor it includes high speed SSD storage (NVMe), and up to 32 GB of RAM (error-correcting RAM in the Xeon-E model).This makes it ideal for embedded computing needs in defense, aerospace, medical, smart security, and energy applications.

The Sabertooth is designed and tested for full industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) operation and meets MIL-STD-202H specifications for shock and vibration. It uses latching connectors to address cable detachment issues in hostile environments.

VersaLogic's 10+ year product life support ensures long-term availability. Long lifecycle products avoid expensive upgrades, redesigns, and migrations that come from shorter lifecycle products.
