Eurotech Group launches the Vector Embedded Platform for Industrial Computing (EPIC) single-board computer (SBC) based on the Intel Atom Z5xx processor. Running at less than 7W of power consumption, the SBC delivers the multimedia and I/O performance of the Intel Atom Z5xx processor family. It does not require a fan, thus minimizing power and footprint. The SBC suits applications in transportation, industrial, medical, and defense markets.

The Vector features dual CAN interfaces, serial ports, high speed USB, and Gigabit Ethernet. For multimedia capability it has dual display support, VGA and LVDS interfaces, and a backlit touchscreen. Vector offers flexibility for the OEM developer providing a wide range power supply unit of 7VDC to 25VDC, and expansion options such as MiniPCI Express, Serial ATA, Solid State Disk, and SecureDigital or CompactFlash support. Any of these options can be used as memory or boot options for optimal flexibility in configuration schemes. Vector supports both commercial and industrial temperatures configurations.

Pete Dombrowski, director of engineering for Eurotech, notes that "The SBC design is targeted for customers who want to simply plug a single board into their design and go to market quickly."

Vector supports Windows Embedded Standard and Windows CE, as well as Wind River Linux. Development systems are available now with a full set of features and OS options.
