Description

Overview
The Cobra belongs to a new class of embedded computers offering higher processing performance with lower power consumption, extreme graphics capability and enhanced ruggedization. The advanced design makes it suitable for a wide range of higher-end applications with demanding speed and graphics requirements, including gaming devices, information kiosks telecommunications devices and advanced security systems. In addition, its PC architecture and small footprint make it an excellent choice for traditional embedded applications. The Cobra is available in several versions, including models for standard and extended temperature operation. See the Ordering Information section for more information.

The system is built around the M-series processors, and their companion chipset, the 855GME with integrated Extreme Graphics 2 and audio functions. The Pentium M version Cobra incorporates a number of power saving features, including the SpeedStep technology, and performance enhancing features such as a large 1 MB level 2 cache. The advanced graphics controller provides exceptionally sharp images, ultra-fast rendering, and smooth sequencing to produce realistic 3-D graphics and animation.

The board features two SODIMM sockets, which support up to 2 GB of system RAM. The rugged, low-profile RAM sockets provide more reliable operation in applications subject to shock and vibration. The DDR (Double Data Rate) RAM interface provides fast memory access and increased system throughput.

Like all VersaLogic products, the Cobra is designed and guaranteed for long-term availability. From application design to continuing production, it provides a cost-effective solution with low total cost of ownership. The Cobra is manufactured to the highest quality standards, and is backed with excellent technical and engineering support. Customization is available in quantities as low as 100 pieces.

Details
The Cobra features an Intel Pentium M® or Celeron M® processor and 855 GME chipset to provide main processing, device support, and analog or flat panel video output. The system is complimented by a wide array of I/O devices for communication with peripherals, networked systems and specialized devices. On-board I/O includes two Gigabit or 10/100 Ethernet ports, four USB 2.0 ports, RS-232 and RS/422/485 COM ports, compact flash socket, LPT port, digital I/O ports, counter/timers, field-reprogrammable BIOS, and optional A/D converter. The PC/104-Plus expansion site can accept a wide variety of PC/104 and PC/104-Plus I/O modules for additional expansion when needed.

The Cobra also provides durability and reliability through features like latching I/O connectors, a programmable CPU temperature sensor, voltage-sensing reset circuit, watchdog timer, and long-life industrial battery. TVS (Transient Voltage Suppression) devices on the primary system I/O connections help protect the system from ESD (electrostatic discharge) damage. A self-resetting fuse on the 5V power to the keyboard, mouse and USB ports protects the board from cable or connector shorts.
