A rugged, maintenance-free SBC is targeted for use in mobile and intelligent display environments including trains, public transportation, airplanes and other specialty vehicles as found in construction and agricultural applications. The compact SC21 from Men Micro measures only 220 mm x 150 mm x 35 mm to easily fit into display devices with TFT LCD panels as small as 10.4". The conduction-cooled SBC features backlight control and is prepared for a touch screen interface. Controlled by the Intel Atom XL Z520PT, the SC21 features a core processor speed of 1.33 GHz and a system bus frequency of 533 MHz for exceptional computing power in space-constrained environments.  

Standard interfaces include two Fast Ethernet ports, via RJ45 connectors, with switch functionality to connect multiple displays and two USB host ports as well as four binary inputs, via the 10-pin power supply. When combined with an external antenna, the MiniPCI Express slot with a SIM card slot provides wireless functions, such as Wi-Fi, WIMAX, GSM/GPRS or UMTS. The standard LVDS 25-pin connector enables direct connection of a 1366 x 768 LVDS display. With the optional secondary LVDS port, displays of up to 1920 x 1200 can be used. Aside from the LVDS signals and backlight brightness control, a customizable PCB connector houses all I/O signals including a USB-driven 5-pin connector for the touch screen interface. An optional MEN Micro SA-Adapter enables a serial interface as well.

Operating temperature of the board is -40° to +70°C for normal operation, and at +85°C for up to 10 minutes. All electronic components are soldered to withstand shock and vibration to EN 50155 specifications. Minimum board availability is five years. Single unit price is $845.
