The Zebra single board computer is a complete Arm-based embedded computer. It features several models that are available with power-efficient single- or dual-core i.MX6 CPUs. All models are delivered tested and ready for deployment. They are ideal for demanding applications that require rugged power-efficient solutions with long-term availability.
Unlike proprietary formats, Zebra is designed around the industry standard COM-Express footprint and mounting points, which simplifies installation and upgrading in the future. Unlike Arm-based modules, Zebra is complete board level computer. Additional carrier boards, connector boards, or I/O expansion are not required for operation. Zebra boards are delivered with on-board soldered-on RAM, ready to plug-in and run.
Like other VersaLogic products, the Zebra SBC is engineered to be rugged. It is validated for operation in unforgiving environments including high temperature, mechanical shock and vibration. Each component has been carefully sourced to ensure reliable operation in the field.
Zebra embedded computer boards provide connectivity via Gigabit Ethernet, USB, and CAN bus interfaces, as well as HDMI video support. They also provide a MikroBUS socket for expandability, and additional on-board I/O including I2C, audio, SPI, and GPIO lines. An on-board 6-axis e-compass is available as a modified COTS option.
VersaLogic's 10+ year availability ensures long-term deployment in the field, free from expensive upgrades and migrations that come from short lifecycle products.
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.
