Description

Overview

The Iguana is a low-power / high-performance single board computer (SBC) with extensive on-board I/O. Driven by an Intel Atom D525 or D425 processor, the Iguana provides 1.8 GHz performance with dual- and single-core options. Based on the industry-standard EPIC form factor (4.5 x 6.5 inches), this SBC is an excellent solution for embedded applications with substantial I/O requirements.

As with all VersaLogic products, the Iguana is designed to support OEM applications where high reliability and long-term availability are required. From application design-in support, to its 5+ year production life guarantee, the Iguana provides a durable embedded computer solution with an excellent cost of ownership. The Iguana is manufactured to IPC-A-610 Class 2 standards and is fully RoHS compliant.

Details

Driven by an Intel Atom D525 (dual core) or D425 (single core) processor, the Iguana provides 1.8 GHz performance with low power consumption (913W typical). Enhanced low-power states allow designers to further minimize overall power consumption.

The integrated Intel GMA 3150 graphics core supports DirectX 9c, OpenGL 1.5, MPEG-2 decoding, and adaptive interlacing. A single-channel LVDS flat panel interface and an analog VGA video interface support Extended Desktop, Clone, and Twin display modes. An optional adapter converts LVDS output to VGA for dual VGA operation.

Basic on-board features include dual Gigabit Ethernet with network boot capability, up to 2 GB DDR3 RAM, six USB host ports, four serial ports, SATA interface with support for two devices, and HD audio. Removable flash storage is provided via CompactFlash socket, eUSB interface, and a PCI Express Mini Card socket with mSATA support.

On-board data acquisition features include eight analog inputs, four analog outputs, sixteen digital I/O lines, and two general purpose timers. An industry-standard PC/104-Plus expansion site provides plug-in access to off-the-shelf expansion modules from numerous vendors. The PCI Express Mini Card socket accommodates plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, solid-state storage, and other plug-in devices. The SPX expansion interface provides low-cost plug-in expansion for additional analog, digital, and CANbus I/O.

Available in both standard (0 to +60C) and full industrial temperature (-40 to +85C) versions, the rugged Iguana board meets MIL-STD-202G specifications for mechanical shock and vibration. Optional latching Ethernet connectors provide additional ruggedization for use in extremely harsh environments. Transient voltage suppression (TVS) devices on critical I/O ports provide enhanced electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for the system.

The Iguana features an American Megatrends (AMI) UEFI BIOS with OEM enhancements. The field-reprogrammable BIOS supports custom defaults, USB booting, and other application functions. Iguana is compatible with a variety of popular x86 operating systems including Windows, Windows Embedded, Linux, VxWorks, and QNX.

Product customization is available, even in low OEM quantities. Customization options include latching Ethernet headers, pass-through PCI and ISA connectors, three 8254 Programmable Interval Timers, conformal coating, revision locks, custom labeling, customized testing and screening, etc.

VersaLogic products are designed for use by OEMs working in a variety of market applications: Aerospace, Defense, Energy, Industrial, Security, Medical, Military, Robotics, and Transportation. Anywhere that the need for superb quality and high-performance embedded computing exists, applications include: automation, avionics, gateway, in-vehicle, monitoring, simulation, and vision.

VersaLogic delivers extremely reliable standard and customized embedded computers backed with unsurpassed service and the highest availability in the market. VersaLogic exists to exceed customers' product, service, support and delivery needs - whenever and wherever the need arises.
