Smart Panels Provide High-Value Cost/Performance with Multiple OS Support
Page 1 of 1
A new series of Smart Panels is based on a Cortex-A8 processor and Integrated PowerVR SGX Graphics Accelerator. The SP-7W61 and SP-1061 from Adlink support multiple OSs—more than other panel PC products in the same price range. Along with multiple display size and low power consumption options, these high cost/performance (C/P) products can be implemented into a slim and thin chassis depending on requirements, and can be applied in a variety of fields, including communications, medical and industrial control, with the support of software customization.
The SP-7W61 and SP-1061 are both based on the TI-Sitara AM3715 Cortex-A8 processor running at 1 GHz and integrated PowerVR SGX Graphics Accelerator. Unlike most current embedded systems with limited OS support, both models support multiple operating systems, including Linux 2.6.37, Android 2.3.4 and Windows Compact 7, to meet the requirements of a variety of applications in fields such as communications, medical and industrial control, human machine interface (HMI) and transportation.
The SP-7W61 (7” 16:9) and SP-1061 (10” 4:3) have a low-power, slim, fanless mechanical design and a high C/P Panel PC module using powerful and efficient components. Compared with other x86 HMI or open frame products, both the SP-7W61 and SP-1061 surpass typical limitations, successfully keeping power consumption to less than 5.9 watts, which is half the typical rate. Their competitive product size makes them easy to implement into slim and thin chassis types, such as those for HMI, control panels or wall mount controller.
To maximize product value, Adlink also provides full support on software customization based on different platforms. A virtual machine or SDK is provided with related documentation for different platforms, so users can easily set up the software environment.
