The Cougar is a feature-rich, mid-performance single board computer that offers very low power consumption without sacrificing performance. The highly efficient AMD LX 800 processor provides fanless extended temperature operation, while soldered-on memory ensures high reliability. Equipped with dual 10/100 Ethernet, USB 2.0 ports, and RS-232/422/485 COM ports, the Cougar is ideal for military, avionics, homeland security, medical, and other embedded computing applications.

Like all VersaLogic products, this small and efficient SBC is designed to support OEM applications where high reliability and long-term availability are required. From application design-in to 5+ years production life, its quality and longevity provide a cost-effective, long-term solution. Customization is available on as few as 100 pieces. The Cougar is manufactured and tested to the highest quality standards, is compliant with RoHS regulations, and is backed by a two year limited warranty.

The Cougar features the AMD LX 800 processor, which offers Celeron 800 MHz-equivalent performance while drawing less than 5 watts of power. This highly-integrated processor, along with its companion chip, provide the majority of the Cougar’s on-board I/O, including USB 2.0 support, high performance video, and RS-232/422/485 COM ports. The high resolution video output can be configured for either standard desktop-type displays or LVDS flat panels.

The Cougar features a General Software Embedded BIOS with OEM enhancements. This field-reprogrammable BIOS supports custom defaults and the addition of firmware and firmbase applications for security processes, remote booting, and other pre-OS software functions. The Cougar is compatible with a variety of popular operating systems, including Windows, QNX, VxWorks, and Linux.
