The Manx is a compact, rugged single board computer that combines a high degree of functionality with low power requirements and no moving parts. The inherent ruggedness of the Manx’s PC/104 size combined with the low power AMD Geode LX 800 processor make this board a great fit for vehicular/aircraft controls, medical electronics, and many other OEM applications.

The Manx has an impressive list of on-board features, including high-performance video with flat panel support, 10/100 Ethernet, four USB ports, three COM ports, LPT port, and IDE interface. A CompactFlash socket provides bootable media storage and TVS devices provide enhanced ESD protection on user I/O ports. The Manx includes 256 MB of soldered-on RAM for use in applications requiring a high degree of ruggedness.

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. The Manx is manufactured and tested to the highest quality standards, is compliant with RoHS regulations, and is backed by a two year limited warranty. Customization is available on as few as 100 pieces.

The Manx features the AMD Geode LX 800 processor, which offers outstanding performance and low power draw (5W). This highly-integrated processor provides fast on-board transfers (6 GB per second), high-speed memory access, and integrated high-performance video with both analog and LVDS flat panel support. It is available in both standard temperature (0° to +60°C) and extended temperature (-40° to +85°C) versions.

The suspend-to-RAM power management feature supports a very low power sleep mode (0.2W) for use between active sessions.

The Manx can operate as a stand-alone SBC or can be combined with specialized PC/104 or PC/104-Plus I/O boards for additional functionality. Pass-through connectors for the PC/104 and PC/104-Plus interfaces provide support for many off-the-shelf I/O boards and also provide an interface for custom baseboards that may be larger than the Manx. In addition, the Manx has been designed to provide a migration path for VersaLogic Puma (VL-EPM-5x) SBC users.

The Manx includes several features to support reliable operation in the field, including TVS devices and fanless cooling. The TVS devices provide enhanced ESD protection for the analog video output, USB, COM, LPT, and Ethernet ports.

The board features a Phoenix Technologies (formerly General Software) Embedded BIOS with OEM enhancements and power management. The field-reprogrammable BIOS supports custom defaults and optional addition of firmware and firmbase applications for security processes, remote booting, and other pre-OS software functions. The Manx is compatible with a variety of popular operating systems, including Windows, Linux, VxWorks, and QNX.
