Powered by a third Generation Intel Core processor, a new EBX single board computer boasts a high performance level, combined with a high-speed PCIe expansion site that enables the integration of complex high-bandwidth functions, such as Digital Signal Processing and video processing. These applications have historically been performed with large chassis-based systems and custom hardware.

The Copperhead from VersaLogic offers dual- or quad-core performance that allows high-end compute-bound and video-bound applications to now be tackled with just a single embedded computer board, not a set of boards in a rack. This opens new opportunities for automating high-end applications that need to be more portable, rugged, or lower cost than previous CPU architectures allowed.

Based on the industry-standard EBX format of 5.75 x 8 inches, the Copperhead features onboard data acquisition via sixteen analog inputs, eight analog outputs and sixteen digital I/O lines and up to 16 Gbyte of DDR3 RAM. System I/O includes dual Gigabit Ethernet with network boot capability, two USB 3.0 ports, ten USB 2.0 ports, four serial ports and HD audio. Dual SATA 3 and SATA 6 interfaces support Intel Rapid Storage Manager with RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 capabilities (SATA 6 ports only). Flash storage is provided via an mSATA socket, eUSB interface and a Mini PCIe socket. The Mini PCIe socket also accommodates plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet channels and other plug-in mini cards. The Copperhead supports an optional TPM (Trusted Platform Module) chip for applications that require enhanced hardware-level security functions.

The Copperhead offers models that support either PCIe/104 Type 1 or SUMIT expansion. The onboard expansion site provides plug-in access to a wide variety of expansion modules. The PCIe/104 Type 1 interface includes a PCIe x16 lane to support expansion with extremely high bandwidth devices. The SPX expansion interface provides additional plug-in expansion for low-cost analog, digital and CANbus I/O.

Available in both standard (0° to +60°C) and industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) versions, the rugged Copperhead boards meet MIL-STD-202G specifications for mechanical shock and vibration. The high tolerance +12V power input allows the board to operate with power ranging from 9 to 15 volts. This eliminates expensive precision supplies and makes the Copperhead ideal for automotive applications.

Optional high-reliability Ethernet connectors provide additional ruggedization for use in extremely harsh environments. Thermal solutions include heat sink, heat sink with fan and heat plate. For extremely high-reliability applications, IPC-A-610 Class 3 versions are available. Copperhead is RoHS compliant
