Embedded computer soars with Intel Xeon processor and NVMe SSD storage
An embedded computer, based on the Intel Xeon processor, known as the Coffee Lake Refresh processor, has been released by VersaLogic.
The Eagle embedded computer also has high speed, on-board NVMe SSD storage, error code correction (ECC) memory, Ethernet, TPM 2.0 security, general purpose I/O (GPIO) and USB ports, as well as a SATA port for off-board storage.
Intel’s 9th Generation Xeon-E processor has six cores and Hyper-Threading. In addition to the powerful processor and the soldered down 128Gbyte NVMe fast read / write storage and up to 32Gbyte ECC memory. The Eagle is intended for intensive processing at the edge, explained VersaLogic’s president, Len Crane. “This particularly applies when security concerns or limited communication bandwidth preclude sending raw data back to a data centre,” he said.
Interfaces include Ethernet, USB 3.2, serial, I2C, GPIO, and Mini DisplayPort connections. There is also SATA III connectivity for applications requiring an off-board storage capability.
The compact computer has a 96 x 90mm footprint and a height of 37mm, enabling it to fit into most 1U enclosures. The Eagle is designed and tested for full industrial temperature (-40 to +85 degrees C) operation and meets MIL-STD-202H specifications for shock and vibration.
Like other products from VersaLogic, the Eagle is designed for long-term availability (10+ year typical production lifecycle).
Modifications are available, even when the Eagle is ordered in low OEM quantities. Modifications include conformal coating, revision locks, custom labelling, customised testing and screening.
The Eagle will be available in production volumes from Q4 2021.
The Eagle will be shown by VersaLogic at AUVSI Xponential 2021 (August 17 to 19) held in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Visit VersaLogic at booth 2224.
VersaLogic supplies embedded computers and technical support for critical markets such as medical and defence. In addition to long-term availability, the computers operate at -40 to +85 degrees C and are qualified to MIL-STD-202 shock and vibration testing.
