Next step in low-power PC/104-Plus-compatible SBCs provides abundant onboard I/O options in a compact, rugged footprint ideal for industrial and high-performance operating environments
ARLINGTON, Texas – October 19, 2017 – WINSYSTEMS, an acclaimed provider of industrial embedded computer solutions for 35 years, today debuted the feature-rich evolution of its popular PC/104-Plus-compatible single board computers. Its new PPM-C412 series for demanding environments and applications offers a broad spectrum of I/O features and the ability to expand functionality in a densely populated, standalone SBC solution. It delivers greater performance and a clear upgrade path for current PPM-LX800 users while providing full ISA-compatible PC/104-Plus expansion.
“Current PPM-LX800 SBC users will appreciate the PPM-C412’s superior performance thanks to its Vortex DX3 System on Chip (SOC), which offers a 32-bit X 86 architecture with a dual-core microprocessor,” said Technical Sales Director George Hilliard. “An impressive amount of functionality and communications connectivity is packed into its small footprint, all engineered and tested to withstand harsh industrial temperatures and high levels of vibration and shock.”
AMPLE FEATURES FOR COMMUNICATION AND CONTROL
The PPM-C412 incorporates dual Ethernet ports coupled with four serial ports, four USB channels and an LPT port for myriad communications options. It also includes dual simultaneous display outputs – one LVDS and one VGA – for Human Machine Interface (HMI) displays. Further, It provides 24 GPIO for monitoring and control, resulting in an I/O-rich, rugged SBC occupying minimal space. The PPM-C412 can be used on its own or in combination with the PC/104-PLUS bus to expand functionality and capitalize on its full ISA compatibility, averting the need to re-engineer system architectures.
The PPM-C412 extends WINSYSTEMS’ track record as a leading provider of PC/104 single board computers. It is specifically built for rugged industrial environments, with low power requirements, up to 2 GB RAM and an operating temperature range of -40ºC to +85ºC. With a 10-year availability, this new SBC also extends the product life of systems using commercial off the shelf (COTS) and proprietary PC/104 expansion modules.
