VersaLogic introduces the Anaconda, a low-power, EBX format, single-board computer
The Anaconda features built-in data acquisition ports including eight analog inputs and thirty-two digital I/O lines. Basic on-board I/O includes dual Ethernet with network boot capability, up to 2 GB soldered-on DDR2 RAM, five USB ports, four serial ports, a SATA interface that supports high-capacity rotating or solid-state drives, removable flash storage, and three general purpose timers.
Systems can be enhanced by leveraging the Anaconda's on-board Mini PCIe expansion socket with plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet, Analog, and other mini cards. The Mini PCIe socket includes mSATA capability providing flexible solid-state drive (SSD) options.
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 and digital I/O.
Anaconda features no moving parts, soldered-on RAM, and was designed and tested to withstand extreme temperatures, high-impact, and vibration. This single-board computer is an ideal choice for applications that require a rugged, high reliability product.
Designed for full industrial temperature (-40°C to +85°C) operation, the rugged Anaconda boards meet MIL-STD-202G specifications for mechanical shock and vibration. Latching connectors provide additional ruggedization for use in harsh environments. Transient voltage suppression (TVS) devices on critical I/O ports provide enhanced electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for the system.
The Anaconda features an American Megatrends (AMI) BIOS with OEM enhancements. The field-reprogrammable BIOS supports custom defaults, remote/network booting, and other application functions. Anaconda is compatible with a variety of popular x86 operating systems including Windows, Windows Embedded, Linux, VxWorks, and QNX.
Anaconda's on-board I/O functions are supported by VersaAPI. VersaAPI is an application programming interface (API) that simplifies software access to the on-board I/O devices. Supported devices include analog input, digital I/O, and timer/counters. VersaAPI is provided for Windows and Linux operating systems.
As with all VersaLogic products, the Anaconda is covered by VersaLogic's 5-year product warranty and 5+ year availability guarantee. VersaLogic's Life Extension program typically keeps each technology generation available for 10+ years. The Anaconda provides a durable embedded computer solution with an excellent cost of ownership.
