VersaLogic Expands its Arm-based Embedded Computer Line

March 26, 2020 Tiera Oliver

VersaLogic Corporation added a new model to its "Swordtail" product family, the latest in their line of Arm-based embedded computers, the EPC- 2702, 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.

Swordtail boards are ideal for transmitting maintenance or diagnostic information without the need for a wired connection. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios are included on board, and a NimbleLink Skywire socket supports a wide range of cellular and wireless plug-ins.  

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.

Designed for COTS and MCOTS users, Swordtail models can be modified for specific applications in quantities as low as 100 pieces.

Like other VersaLogic products, the Swordtail is designed for long-term availability (10+ year production lifecycle). 

The Swordtail single board computers (VL-EPC-2702) are in stock at both VersaLogic Corp. and Digi-Key Corp. OEM pricing starts at $234.
