An economical EPIC format single board computer (SBC) features extensive I/O capabilities, very low power consumption, and fanless operation over the full industrial temperature range. The Newt board from VersaLogic leverages DM&P's Vortex86DX System on Chip (SoC). It offers 800 MHz performance, full industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) operation, and very low power requirements. Based on the industry-standard EPIC form factor (4.5 x 6.5 inches), this SBC is a solution for industrial and medical applications with substantial I/O requirements. The Newt is designed for headless applications (no video output), or it may be used with plug-in video expansion modules.

The Newt features built-in data acquisition ports including sixteen analog inputs, up to eight analog outputs, and thirty-two digital I/O lines. Basic onboard I/O includes single or dual Ethernet with network boot capability, up to 1 Gbyte soldered-on DDR2 RAM, up to four USB ports, four serial ports, IDE controller with support for two devices, CompactFlash socket or eUSB interface (optional) for removable flash storage, and three general purpose timers. An industry-standard PC/104-Plus expansion site provides plug-in access to a wide variety of expansion modules from numerous vendors. The SPX expansion interface provides additional plug-in expansion for low-cost analog, digital and CANbus I/O.

Designed for full industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) operation, the Newt boards meet MIL-STD-202G specifications for mechanical shock and vibration. Optional latching Ethernet connectors provide additional ruggedization for use in extremely harsh environments. Transient voltage suppression (TVS) devices on critical I/O ports provide enhanced electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for the system.

The Newt features an American Megatrends (AMI) BIOS with OEM enhancements. The field-reprogrammable BIOS supports custom defaults, remote/network booting, and other application functions. Newt is compatible with a variety of popular x86 operating systems including Windows, Windows Embedded, Linux, VxWorks and QNX. Pricing starts at $411 in OEM quantities.
