The Falcon is a brand new complete embedded computer from VersaLogic, in an extremely small/rugged format. The new Embedded Processing Unit (EPU) format combines processor, memory, video, and system I/O into an extremely compact embedded computer.
Featuring an Intel® Atom™ E6xxT processor, the Falcon provides up to 1.6 GHz performance with low power consumption.
The Falcon is the embedded industry’s smallest, lightest, ultra-rugged embedded x86 computer. Around the size of a credit card (55 mm x 84 mm), and only 22mm thick, it’s a great choice for a range of applications, including Mil-Aero, Medical, Security, R&D and Robotics. Tipping the scales at less than 115g it’s also a seriously good solution for use in for portable applications and unmanned systems where Size, Weight and Power consumption (SWaP) are critical design elements.
Designed to withstand extreme temperature (-40º to +85ºC), the rugged Falcon also meets MIL-STD-202G specifications for shock and vibration. Soldered-on RAM and latching SATA, Ethernet, power, and main I/O connectors provide additional ruggedisation for use in extremely harsh environments.
The Falcon features four USB 2.0 ports, four serial ports, and Intel High-Definition Audio (HDA). A SATA 3 Gb/s interface supports high-capacity rotating or solid-state drives. Dual microSD sockets and a Mini PCIe socket with mSATA capability provide flexible solid-state drive (SSD) options. Systems can be enhanced by leveraging the Mini PCIe socket with plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet, FireWire, and other mini cards.
The Falcon is compatible with most x86 operating systems including Windows, Windows Embedded, Linux, and VxWorks. Falcon is ITAR and RoHS compliant and includes VersaLogic’s 5+ year production life guarantee.
The Falcon will be available from stock starting in September of 2012.
