Description

The Bengal is a low-power / high-performance single board computer (SBC) with a full complement of on-board I/O. Driven by the low power Intel® 22nm Silvermont microarchitecture, the Bengal provides up to 1.9 GHz of performance with quad, dual, and single-core processor options. Based on the industry-standard PC/104 format (4.23 x 3.77 inches), this SBC is an excellent solution for size, weight and power (SWaP) constrained applications.

Bengal is built on the “PCIe/104 OneBank” format. Compatible with the PCI/104 Express format, it includes a legacy PCI connector, and a single bank high-speed PCIe connector. This provides flexible system expansion, while leaving more on-board space available for product features. The single bank connector is mechanically and electrically compatible with the existing PCI/104-Express Type 1 and Type 2 modules.

As with all VersaLogic products, the Bengal is designed to support OEM applications where high reliability and long-term availability are required. From application design-in support, to 10+ year availability, the Bengal provides a durable embedded computer solution with an excellent cost of ownership.

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.
