Now shipping—compact Skylake-powered embedded computer!

Condor (EPU-4460)Tualatin, OR – December 5, 2017 – VersaLogic has released the Condor—a high-performance embedded computer that measures only 95 x 95 x 37 mm and is built around Intel's 6th generation "Skylake" Core processor. The Condor provides up to six times the processing power of Intel's Bay Trail processors, while keeping power consumption as low as 15 Watts.

The Condor's on-board TPM security chip can lock out unauthorized hardware and software access. It provides a secure "Root of Trust." Additional security is provided through built-in AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) instructions.

Condor is the latest addition to VersaLogic's line of EPU (Embedded Processing Unit) format computers. EPU's are designed around COM Express form factors, but are complete board level computers. They provide all the future flexibility of separate CPU and I/O modules, and are delivered as complete fully assembled and tested units (including heat plate), ready to bolt into a system. Since VersaLogic's EPUs are available off-the-shelf, they can drastically reduce project start-up and development time.

High Performance I/O Capabilities

On-board I/O includes two Gigabit Ethernet ports with network boot capability, two USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 host ports, and two serial ports. One SATA III interface supports high-capacity rotating or solid-state drives. Eight digital I/O lines, I2C and SPI are also available.

Two Mini PCIe sockets (one with mSATA capabilities) provide flexible solid-state drive (SSD) options. Systems can be easily enhanced by leveraging the Mini PCIe sockets with plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet, Firewire, and other mini cards.

Industrial Tough

The Condor is designed and tested for industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) operation and meets MIL-STD-202G specifications to withstand high impact and vibration.

For additional reliability, the Condor includes on-board power conditioning which accepts an input of 8 to 30 volts to greatly simplify system power supply design. For additional protection, the conditioner includes Reverse Voltage Protection (RVP) and Over Voltage Protection (OVP) functions.

The Condor, part number VL-EPU-4460, is in stock at both VersaLogic Corp. and Digi-Key Corp. OEM quantity pricing starts at $1,304 for the Core i3 model with 8 GB RAM. Contact Sales@VersaLogic.com or visit VersaLogic.com/Condor or Digikey.com for more information.
