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. 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).

Unlike Arm-based “modules”, VersaLogic’s Swordtail is a complete board-level computer. It does not require additional carrier cards, companion boards, connector break-out boards, or other add-ons to function. It is a production-ready product.

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 optional cellular and wireless plug-ins.

The Swordtail embedded computer boards are ready for off-the-shelf deployment into demanding industrial, smart city, and transportation applications requiring rugged, long-life, power efficient, wide temperature solutions.

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

 

Customizable

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

 

Industrial Tough

Designed and tested for industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) operation, VersaLogic’s Swordtail also meets MIL-STD-202H specifications for impact and vibration. Engineered and validated for ruggedness, Swordtail excels in unforgiving environments.

 

Long-term Availability

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

 

Pricing and Availability

The Swordtail single board computers (VL-EPC-2702) are now in stock at both VersaLogic Corp. and Digi-Key Corp. OEM pricing starts at $236. Contact Sales@VersaLogic.com or visit VersaLogic.com/Swordtail or Digikey.com for more information.
