VersaLogic Releases New Embedded Computer, Owl

VersaLogic released a new embedded computer they call 'Owl', which features error correcting memory coupled with Intel's 5th generation Apollo Lake processors.

VersaLogic released a new embedded computer they call “Owl”, which features error correcting memory coupled with Intel’s 5th generation Apollo Lake processors. Further, it hosts 2.0 hardware security, on-board power conditioning, Mini PCIe expansion sockets, and analog input ports - plus standard USB and Ethernet I/O ports.

"The Owl features soldered-down ECC (error correcting) memory to enhance resilience to shock and vibration, and guard against single-bit errors such as those that are likely to occur at higher altitudes," said president of VersaLogic Len Crane, in a press release. “It also features on-board power conditioning which accepts 8 to 30 VDC input. This accommodates fixed and mobile 12- and 24-volt systems. 

“Additional protection is provided against damaging transient voltages, over voltage, reverse voltage, and RF intrusion.”

Within just a 95 x 95 x 29 mm package, it is designed for a full industrial temperature range of (-40º to +85ºC). Further, it meets MIL-STD-202H specifications for shock and vibration.

As far as security goes, the TPM 2.0 security chip, which is built in, gives hardware-level security for applications that require log-in, encrypted data storage, protected files, and more.

The on-board I/O includes dual Gigabit Ethernet, one USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports, eight analog inputs, eight digital I/O ports, and four serial ports.
