Description

Overview
The Python is a mid-performance single board computer that offers lower power consumption and superior performance over previous generation embedded computers. Advancements in technology allow the Python to be a more flexible core component in any embedded system, and reduce the amount of development time required to add specialized I/O or custom peripheral devices. The highly efficient AMD LX 800 processor is integrated with a wide range of on-board I/O from standard PC/104 and PC/104-Plus interfaces to versatile analog and digital I/O. With dual Ethernet channels, USB 2.0 ports, RS-232 and RS-422 COM ports, and fanless operation, the Python is ideal for industrial control and data acquisition applications. The Python is available in several versions, including models for standard and extended temperature operation.

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 Python is manufactured and tested to the highest quality standards, is compliant with RoHS regulations, and is backed by a two year limited warranty.

Details
The Python 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 Python's on-board I/O, including USB support, audio, and video. The high resolution video output can be configured for either standard desktop-type displays or LVDS flat panels.

For cost-effective I/O expansion without the need for additional PC/104 modules, the Python includes VersaLogic's new SPX interface. SPX modules provide an inexpensive solution for additional I/O including analog, digital, CANbus, relay switching, and more. In addition, the simple SPX interface, which is based on Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) signaling, can be used to easily design custom user I/O devices.

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