SBS Technologies, represented by Metromatics , has introduced the EC6 all-in-one single board computer offering scalable processing power with low power consumption.
Features include low power, Pentium-compatible Geode GX1 processor, compact design, integrated power supply filter, fanless cooling and PC/104+ extension slots for modular expansion.
The EC6's minimal power requirements eliminate the need for expensive power supplies, making it a cost efficient embedded PC platform for applications, such as process and control automation, data acquisition and processing, machine control, test systems, public transportation, digital printers, information systems, and mobile devices.
To maximise versatility, it offers flexible DRAM configurations up to 512MB, and an extensive array of peripherals. In addition to dual 10/100 Fast Ethernet interfaces, it has a CANbus interface for low-cost I/O, two USB Ports, LPT1, and four serial I/O (RS232/422/485) interfaces with FIFOs.
The board has an interface for a hard drive or a FlashDrive. Other peripherals include a CompactFlash slot, on-board VGA Interface and LCD Interface.
A PC/104+ interface enables custom extensions such as Interbus-S, Profibus, and Device-Net.
Operating system support is available for Windows NT/2000/XP, VxWorks, QNX and MS-DOS.
