New Low Power Rugged SBC Released for OEMs

Published: 19 May 2018

Zebra (EPC-2701) ARM-based Single Board ComputerVersaLogic Corporation announces the Zebra—the latest in their new line of production-ready Arm-based embedded computers.

Featuring models with either the NXP i.MX6 Solo (single core), or the i.MX6 DualLite (dual core) processors, the Zebra is rated for full industrial temperature operation (-40° to +85°C). The compact 95 x 95 mm computer board typically consumes less than 3W of power when operating.

Unlike many Arm-based “modules,” VersaLogic’s new Arm-based products are complete board-level computers. They do not require additional carrier cards, companion boards, connector break-out boards, or other add-ons to function.

For ease of mounting and future upgrades, the Zebra product conforms to the size and mounting points of the industry standard COM Compact format. Unlike proprietary-format Arm products, VersaLogic Arm boards provide a standardized mounting pattern for simplified upgrading in the future.

The Zebra embedded computer board is ready for off-the-shelf deployment into demanding industrial, defense, and aerospace applications requiring rugged, long-life, power efficient, industrial temperature rated (-40° to +85°C) solutions.

Both Zebra models include soldered-on memory, and a variety of I/O. The on-board I/O includes a Gigabit Ethernet port with network boot capability, two USB 2.0 Ports, serial I/O (RS-232), CAN Bus, I2C, and SPI. An on-board 6-axis e-compass is optional.

Customizable
Designed for COTs and MCOTS, Zebra can be modified for your application in quantities as low as 100 pieces.

Industrial Tough

Many applications that require lower power or lower heat dissipation still need very high levels of reliability. Designed and tested for industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) operation, VersaLogic’s Zebra also meets MIL-STD-202G specifications to withstand high impact and vibration. Carefully engineered and validated, Zebra excels in unforgiving environments.

Extended Life
VersaLogic understands the needs of medical and military OEMs. Designed with careful component choices, and long product life in mind, Zebra addresses the challenges of short product lifecycles. VersaLogic’s 10+ year life-extension programs offers long production cycles free from expensive migration changes and upgrades.
