VersaLogic Corp. has debuted "SandCat," its new PC/104-Plus Single Board Computer (SBC), which provides a cost optimized performance level and I/O capability based on Intel's Bay Trail System-on-Chip (SoC).
SandCat's I/O connectivity has a Gigabit Ethernet port with network boot capability, four USB 2.0 ports, two serial ports (RS-232/422/485), I2C, and eight digital I/O lines. A SATA 3 Gb/s interface supports high-capacity rotating or solid-state drives. A Mini PCIe socket with mSATA capability provides alternatives for flexible solid-state drive (SSD).
SandCat's Mini PCIe socket grants accessible on-board expansion with plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, and additional mini cards like MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet, and Analog.
It supports PC/104-Plus expansion, including ISA and PCI based modules, in order to stack expansion using industry-standard add-on boards. Users are able to choose a wide variety of expansion modules from numerous vendors, all with bolt-down ruggedness due to the on-board expansion site.
