Description

The SandCat is a low-power dual-core single board computer (SBC) with an industry-standard PC/104-Plus expansion interface. This combination makes it easy to upgrade existing PC/104 systems to Intel's long-life Bay Trail processor, while preserving plug-in expansion to existing specialty I/O boards. The board also contains on-board I/O interfaces, including USB, a mini PCIe expansion socket, and digital I/O ports.

The SandCat is driven by a low power E3825 dual-core Bay Trail processor with a clock rate of 1.33 GHz. Based on the industry-standard PC/104 format (4.2 x 3.8 inches), the SandCat includes legacy ISA and PCI connectors to interface directly withPC/104-Plus expansion boards.

Like other VersaLogic products, the SandCat is designed and validated for operation in unforgiving environments and for long term availability (10+ year typical product lifecycle).

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.
