Micro/sys Releases the first Low-Power ARM Processor with StackableUSB™

Montrose, CA. . . Micro/sys incorporates StackableUSB technology for the first time in an ARM processor broadening the depth of the StackableUSB CPU platforms. Based on a high-performance ARM core, the SBC1626 from Micro/sys provides a powerful, network-ready controller on the 104 form factor with 7 USB ports: 5 host ports through the StackableUSB connector and 2 separate client USB ports. The SBC1626 has dual network processing engines to drive the 10/100BASE-T Ethernet allowing embedded system users to offload networking tasks from ones server, such as Ethernet filtering which enables higher throughputs. The SBC1626 board is ideal for remote, low-power applications since it consumes only 385mA typical in its basic configuration. Applications ranging from industrial controllers to protocol converters to gateways can all be implemented on this high-performance ARM single board computer (SBC).

In addition to its powerful networking features, the SBC1626 also features 24 digital I/O lines, eight readable DIP switches, eight LEDs for application use, and four RS232 serial ports, one RS485 configurable. With 128MB of SDRAM and a 64MB resident flash array, high-performance control or data communications systems can be implemented with feature-rich operating systems without the need for external storage devices. There are board support packages available for Linux, WindowsCE and VXWorks. The SBC1626s CompactFlash socket supports storage devices as well as I/O devices, such as Wi-Fi cards.

The SBC1626 is implemented with the efficient Intel IXP425 XScale processor, which has a super-pipelined RISC architecture. The IXP425 offers speeds from 266MHz to 533MHz, on-chip cache, a watchdog timer, and 133MHz SDRAM access. A free development kit is provided with the SBC1626 that includes cables, sample software, and full documentation.

The basic SBC1626 starts at $450 in single quantity. An extended temperature (-40C to +85C) version is also available. Significant OEM discounts are available.
