The EBX-compliant Sidewinder is a feature-packed single board computer (SBC) that uses a VIA Eden 1.2 GHz processor, which offers very high per-watt performance, excellent heat dissipation, and outstanding cost of ownership. The platform incorporates dual 10/100 Ethernet, a CompactFlash socket, and integrated I/O including 8-channel 12-bit analog input, 32-channel digital I/O, and two counter/timers. The Sidewinder design also supports PC/104, PC/104-Plus and SPX expansion sites and incorporates six USB 2.0 ports to create a highly reliable, cost-effective SBC. The RoHS-compliant Sidewinder is ideal for new applications requiring higher performance coupled with lower power consumption, rock solid reliability, and compatibility with standard software applications and leading operating systems.

The Sidewinder is powered by the VIA Eden 1.2 GHz processor, a very high performance-per-watt processor. The companion digital media chipset integrates the VIA UniChrome Pro II 2D/3D graphics core and an array of high-end video technologies, including hardware MPEG-2/4 and WMV9 video decoding acceleration. The Sidewinder can be configured for use with either standard desktop-type displays or LVDS flat panels. For cost-effective I/O expansion without the need for additional PC/104 modules, the Sidewinder includes VersaLogic’s new SPX interface. SPX modules provide a low-cost flexible solution for adding additional I/O such as analog and digital I/O, CANbus interface, relay switching, and more. The use of SPX expansion modules can dramatically reduce both development time and target system costs for most projects.

The Sidewinder features General Software’s Embedded BIOS with OEM enhancements. This field-upgradeable BIOS supports custom defaults and the addition of firmware and firmbase applications for security, remote booting, and other pre-OS software functions. The Sidewinder is compatible with a variety of popular operating systems, including Windows XP/CE, QNX, VxWorks, and Linux. Dual Ethernet channels, USB 2.0 ports, RS-232 and RS-422 COM ports make the Sidewinder an ideal solution for industrial control, medical devices, and other embedded applications where high reliability and long-term availability are required.

Like all VersaLogic products, this efficient SBC is designed from the ground up for long-term availability. From application design-in to 5+ years of production life, the quality and longevity provide a cost-effective, long-term solution. Customization is available on as few as 100 pieces. The Sidewinder is manufactured and tested to the highest quality standards, is compliant with RoHS regulations, and is backed by a two year limited warranty.
