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 one’s 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 SBC1626’s 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 (-40°C to +85°C) version is also
available. Significant OEM discounts are available. Contact Technical Sales
