SBC Packs Flexible Edge Computing For IIoT Applications

WinSystems’ SBC35-C427 single-board computer (SBC) is based on the latest Intel Atom E3900 series processor. It is unique in coupling edge computing with multiple configuration and expansion options for adding functionality, along with an extended operating temperature range. The additional functionality provided via its onboard analog-to-digital (ADC) input, general purpose input/ output (GPIO) and serial interfaces enables data collection for simple IIoT gateway applications with flexible expansion to build a full data acquisition platform.


Data Acquisition


Sensors Midwest Hits Rosemont, IL October 16-17!

Sensors Midwest, the industry's largest event focusing on sensors, design, and IIoT in the Midwest region, is scheduled for October 16-17 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. Co-located with STMA, the event draws over 1,000 engineers and engineering professionals that are looking for access to the latest sensor advancements and will provide an opportunity to connect with the area's greatest technology leaders and suppliers.


The SBC35-C427 SBC offers dual Ethernet, two USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 channels, and two onboard analog-to-digital converter (ADC) inputs. Connectivity features also include eight general purpose input/output (GPIO) lines, three serial channels and HD audio. Additional sensors and data acquisition options are available through the Mini PCI Express, M.2, and WinSystems modular I/O interfaces.


Digital Signage


Powered by Intel's latest integrated graphics processor, the design supports up to three independent video displays for stunning, high-resolution graphics – up to Ultra HD 4K at 60 Hz – with its built-in dual DisplayPort and LVDS interfaces. Digital backlight and touchscreen control interfaces are also available.


Power Up


The latest in industrial single board computer technology equips embedded and IIoT developers to create unique designs through easy-to-use expansion and power settings. Optional power modules support Power Over Ethernet (PoE), vehicle, and other power configurations.  The flexible system design can be expanded via its Mini-PCie socket, an M.2 connector (E-Key) and WinSystems' unique Modular I/O 80 interface. These allow standard and custom modules to be easily added with access to SPI, I2C, PCI-Express, LPC and USB interfaces to add near-limitless collection of data for edge processing and control.


IIoT Ready


Powered by the Intel Atom processor E3900 (formerly known as Apollo Lake-I) series SoC, the SBC35-C427 enables more processing to take place at or near the data sensor and offers up to 8 GB of ECC DDR3 RAM. It also provides an extended operating temperature range (-40ºC to +85ºC) and is shock- and vibration-tested to ensure reliable performance in rugged environments.
