Sundance Multiprocessor Technology Ltd. www.sundance.com

Sundance started developing PC/104-compatible boards almost 20 years ago, due to the nature of the “Open Specification” that can be downloaded for free from www.pc104.org. Sundance has recently taken the next step of actually sharing with the community its latest PC/104 platform and full design that contains a Xilinx SoC and is royalty-free. The details of the Sundance board can be found here: http://www.sundance.technology/som-cariers/pc104-boards/emc2-dp/ and the design files are located on CERN’s “Open Hardware Repository” site.

Diamond Systems Corp. www.diamondsystems.com

Diamond’s 3.5-inch 6th-generation Core i7 2.6GHz Venus SBC is generating interest with its built-in ruggedness and impressive feature set. High performance, vast expansion capabilities, thicker PCB, latching connectors, and 4 GB soldered-down DDR4 RAM make Venus a unique solution.
