WinSystems Debuts Single Board Computers Built on Intel Atom E3900 Series CPU in PC/104 Form Factor for High-Reliability Industrial Environments

First PCIe®/104 OneBank® E3900-based product for industrial operations boosts processing performance, offers dense mix of I/O interfaces, connectivity and expansion options in a small size

ARLINGTON, Texas, Nov. 10, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — WinSystems today announced a new line of single board computers with dual Ethernet that feature the Intel® Atom™ Processor E3900 Series for high-performance industrial IoT and other embedded systems. The leading manufacturer of industrial embedded computer modules designed its PX1-C415 SBCs to capitalize on the latest-generation PCle/104® OneBank® expansion to support rugged applications. Not only do they withstand temperatures ranging from -40°C to +85°C, they deliver exceptional functionality and processing performance while supporting the latest Microsoft® Windows® 10 and Linux operating systems. The full-featured PX1-C415 SBCs incorporate dual video interfaces, dual Ethernet ports, four serial ports, 24x bidirectional GPIO lines, and USB Type-C and M.2 connectors in a form factor barely 4.5 inches square.

WinSystems' PX1-C415 single board computer (SBC) is a PC/104 form factor SBC with PCIe/104(TM) OneBank(TM) expansion featuring the latest generation Intel(R) Apollo Lake-I SOC processor.

"Engineers designing embedded systems for Industrial IoT applications look for the latest technology and a long product life cycle along with reliable operation and the ability to add functionality," said Technology and Engineering Director Jack Smith. "The PX1-C415's dense I/O mix is unique in this compact size and extended temperature range. It allows customers to easily connect and control the specific elements in their system for optimal performance."

A full spectrum of I/O expansion options, provided by its ecosystem of PCle/104 and M.2 modules, allows designers to easily add functionality and satisfy their unique project requirements. WinSystems' evolution of the rugged PC/104 form factor is also ideal for other embedded systems within the industrial control, transportation, Mil/COTS and energy markets that demand greater computational capabilities. Furthermore, these modules improve the performance of low-power x64 PC-compatible designs. The cutting-edge Intel® Atom™ E3900 (formerly known as Apollo Lake) processors deliver more computing performance, faster I/O, and higher-resolution graphics than previous industrial CPUs while consuming less power.

The PX1-C415 series offers quad-core or dual-core System on Chip (SOC) for processing and graphics. It provides up to 8GB of DDR3-LV System RAM with support for error detection and correction. It accommodates up to two simultaneously active displays with interfaces available for DisplayPort and LVDS connections.

For networking and communications, the PX1-C415 series utilizes dual Intel i210IT Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, and provides eight USB 2.0 channels, one SuperSpeed USB 3.0 channel, four serial COM channels, 24 general purpose I/O (GPIO) lines, stereo audio and a watchdog timer.

Linux, Windows® and other x86 operating systems can be booted from the eMMC SSD, SATA 3.0 or M.2 (PCle, USB, SATA) interfaces, supporting multiple data storage options. WinSystems provides drivers for Linux, Windows® 10 and other PC-compatible, real-time operating systems. 

The new PX1-C415 line leverages and supports the latest processor technology to improve performance while capitalizing on newer interfaces for greater design flexibility. It compresses time to market compared to designing a CPU or carrier board internally, or sourcing additional modules to attain the same robust functionality.

"By integrating the latest industrial CPU designs, this state-of-the-art, small-scale SBC increases users' avenues for expansion, extending the useful life of their high-reliability embedded systems," added Smith. "What's more, WinSystems' customers benefit from a full seven years of product life before their system becomes obsolete, further extending the return on their investment."

Engineering units will be available early 2017 with full production targeted for Q2 2017.
