VersaLogic Expands its Arm-based Embedded Computer Line

March 4, 2020 Perry Cohen

VersaLogic added a new model to its Swordtail product family, the latest in their line of production-ready Arm-based embedded computers.

Available with either the NXP i.MX6 Quad (quad core), or the i.MX6 DualLite (dual core) processors, the Swordtail includes on-board Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a socket for plug-in cellular radios. The new model adds on-board eMMC storage functionality. At home in hostile environments, the compact 95 x 95 mm computer board is rated for operation at full industrial temperature range (-40° to +85°C).

The new model includes soldered-down 8 GB eMMC Flash as a bootable on-board storage medium. This is in addition to the micro-SD socket included on all models in the family.

All Swordtail models feature soldered-on memory and a variety of I/O ports, including wireless interfaces, Gigabit Ethernet with network boot capability, USB 2.0, serial I/O (RS-232), CAN Bus, and I2C interface. In addition, MCOTS versions can accommodate up to 32 GB of on-board flash storage.
