WinSystems Intel Atom-Based SBCWinSystems, a developer of embedded computer products, has announced the launch of its smallest yet industrial SBC (single board computer) based on the Intel Atom E3800 processor family. The rugged ITX-F-3800 measures 3.31 inches by 2.17 inches (84 mm by 55 mm). Leveraging the compact size of the Femto-ITX form factor, this single board computer includes Ethernet, USB channels, a serial port, video and more, making it ideal for space-constrained applications such as UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and other unmanned platforms.

“We have worked closely with our customers to address their embedded computing requirements for ever-smaller industrial solutions while reducing time to market and lowering the risk of new product development,” said Technical Sales Director George Hilliard. “Our new ITX-F-3800 satisfies the need for a complete, expandable system in an ultra-small SBC that enables long product life cycles of solutions for industrial IoT, energy management, unmanned vehicle and medical designs.”

The compact package includes the most frequently used functionality for IIoT and display capabilities for Human Machine Interfaces (HMI). Intel’s E3800 processor powers Windows 10 IoT and Linux operating systems for the long haul. Its extended operating temperature range of -20ºC to +85ºC makes it ideal for products that must operate in harsh environments.

Key connectivity and configuration features include 10/100/1000 Ethernet, one USB 3.1 and two USB 2.0 channels, an RS-232/422/485 serial port, and general purpose I/O (GPIO). Mini-Card and M.2 connectors provide optional expansion. In addition, their smaller header-based connectors allow these Femto-ITX SBCs to be used within small boxes or containers to support a variety of packaging solutions.
