An EPIC-compatible, 1.66 GHz ATOM-based single board computer (SBC) uses either the Intel ATOM single core N450 or dual core D510 processor combined with the ICH8M I/O hub controller, both of which are supplied from Intel’s Embedded Architecture Division for long-term availability. The EPX-C380 from WinSystems is operational from -40° to +70°C and provides an open platform for processor- and I/O-intensive solutions for demanding applications such as medical, COTS/military, security, transportation, pipeline and machine control. The EPX-C380 measures 115 mm x 165 mm (4.5” x 6.5”) and is compatible with the Embedded Platform for Industrial Computing (EPIC) computer board standard.

The EPX-C380 uses the integrated Intel Gen 3.5 graphics processor, which incorporates both VGA and LVDS display interfaces with resolutions of 1400 x 1050 and 1366 x 768 respectively. Memory support includes up to 2 Gbyte of DDR2 667 MHz SODIMM system memory as well as a CompactFlash socket and optional 2 Mbyte battery-backed SRAM.

The EPX-C380 has two Gigabit Ethernet ports, two SATA channels and eight USB 2.0 ports plus four RS-232/422/485 asynchronous serial channels on board. Also a parallel port consisting of 48 lines of digital I/O, high definition audio (7.1 codec), LPT interface, real-time clock and a watchdog timer round out the onboard I/O. PC/104-Plus and MiniPCIe connectors are included for expansion with either standard or user-designed specialty I/O modules.

It supports WES 7, Linux, Windows XP Embedded and a vast software development tool set including device drivers and libraries. It also supports other x86-compatible real-time operating systems such as QNX and VxWorks. The EPX-C380 requires only +5 volts and typically draws 1.9 amps (typical) with 1 Gigabyte of DDR SDRAM installed. The board is RoHS compliant.
