The Copperhead is a high-performance embedded computer powered by the 3rd Generation Intel "Ivy Bridge" family of processors. Its performance level and extensive I/O allows for the integration of multiple high-bandwidth functions, such as digital signal processing and real-time video processing, onto a single board. This can drastically reduce system cost and size when used to replace multi-board chassis-based systems or custom hardware.
For systems that require video processing or intense computation, the Copperhead features a high-speed memory interface, up to 16 GB on-board RAM capacity, and up to three independent display outputs. The PCIe/104 expansion site with a PCIe x16 lane is ideal for add-on cards, such as frame grabbers.
Based on the industry-standard EBX format, the Copperhead provides a choice of Intel core i7, core i3, and Celeron processor options to meet a variety of price/performance application requirements. It features several heat management configurations and offers options for I/O interfaces and interface connectors. The Copperhead enables scalability, simplifies design, and lowers overall system cost.
Driven by an Intel 3rd Generation Core processor, the Copperhead provides high performance with advanced technology features: Intel Turbo Boost 2.0, Intel vPro, Hyper-threading (two threads per core), and Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX). The Copperhead provides compatibility with a broad range of standard x86 application development tools for reduced development time.
The integrated Intel HD 4000 Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) provides hardware-accelerated MPEG-4/H.264 and MPEG-2 video encoding and decoding. The GPU supports graphics turbo boost and up to three simultaneous displays. Standard video outputs include LVDS for flat panel displays, dual DisplayPort™ outputs, and an analog VGA output. All outputs support multiple display modes including Extended Desktop and Clone.
Industry-standard system interfaces include dual Gigabit Ethernet ports with network boot capability, two USB 3.0 and ten USB 2.0 ports, four serial ports, and Intel High-Definition Audio (HDA). SATA 6 Gb/s and 3 Gb/s interfaces support high-capacity storage (rotating media or solid-state drives). A Mini PCIe socket with mSATA support provides additional solid-state drive (SSD) options. The Mini PCIe socket also accommodates plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet, Firewire, and other mini cards. The Copperhead supports an optional Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip for applications that require enhanced hardware-level security functions.
The rugged Copperhead meets MIL-STD-202G specifications for shock and vibration and includes models designed and tested for either commercial (0° to +60°C) or industrial (-40° to +85°C) temperature operation.
Latching SATA, Ethernet, and power connectors provide additional ruggedization for use in very harsh environments. Heat sink, fan+heat sink, and heat plate versions provide flexible options for thermal management. For extremely-high-reliability applications, IPC-A-610 Class 3 versions are available.
The wide input voltage range of 9 to 15 volts (12V nominal) simplifies system power supply requirements. Copperhead is fully compatible with 12V automotive applications.
Copperhead is compatible with a variety of popular x86 operating systems including Windows, Windows Embedded, Linux, and VxWorks.
Various product customizing is available for the Copperhead, even in low quantities. Options include Trusted Platform Module, conformal coating, BGA underfill, IPC Class 3 assembly, BIOS/splash screen pre-configuration, application-specific testing, custom labeling, etc.
