United Electronic Industries (UEI) has released its fourth generation stand-alone and embedded controllers. The UEIPAC G4 features an ARM i.MX6 core processor that provides five times the CPU horsepower compared to previous versions of the UEIPAC system. 

The new unit is the first UEIPAC series controller with an HMI interface, including HDMI and touchscreen interface capability. It also offers an M.2 slot, allowing customers to install a wide variety of peripherals including WIFI, CELL/GSM and Solid-state hard drives.

Offering a combination of flexibility, durability, high performance, and cost effectiveness, the UEIPAC is a solution for a breadth of data acquisition (DAQ), test, monitoring and control applications. It gives user applications the ability to operate without the cost or additional space required by an external host computer, making it the ideal solution for an embedded system. The G4’s new CPU takes advantage of a modern, secure, and low power SoloX / i.MX6 series ARM processor.

UEI offers over 85 different I/O boards including analog input (with up to 24-bit resolution), analog output, digital I/O, avionics (MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429/453/708/664), serial and CAN communications, counter/timer, quadrature encoder input and more for a wide array of applications. Typical applications include hardware-in-the-loop, avionics simulators, vehicle controllers (manned or unmanned), health usage and monitoring (HUMS), test systems and more. 

The UEIPAC is backed by the UEI’s 10-year availability guarantee to mitigate obsolescence issues, as well as a standard 3-year hardware warranty.
