Description

The Hawk is an extremely small and rugged 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. Roughly the size of a credit card and less than one inch thick, the Hawk is the embedded industry's smallest, lightest, ultra-rugged embedded x86 computer. 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 Hawk provides extreme performance for its size, moderate power consumption (6.1 to 7.4W typical), and a very compact package. The Hawk provides compatibility with a broad range of standard x86 application development tools for reduced development time.

The integrated Intel Gen-7 graphics core provides hardware-accelerated MPEG-4/H.264 and MPEG-2 video encoding and decoding. A standard LVDS output supports flat panel displays. An optional adapter converts the LVDS output to VGA.

Industry-standard system interfaces include Gigabit Ethernet with network boot capability, four USB 2.0 ports, two serial ports, and Intel High-Definition Audio (HDA). A SATA 3 Gb/s interface supports high-capacity storage. On-board eMMC Flash, a microSD socket and a Mini PCIe socket with mSATA support provide flexible solid-state drive (SSD) options. The Mini PCIe socket also accommodates plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet, Firewire, and other mini cards.

Designed and tested for industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) operation, the rugged Hawk 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 extremely harsh environments. Heat sink or heat plate versions provide fanless heat dissipation.

A wide input voltage range of 8 to 17 volts (12V typ.) simplifies system power supply requirements. It is fully compatible with 12V automotive applications.

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

Product customization is available, even in low 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.
