COLUMBIA, Md., Sept. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Eurotech, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, products, and systems, announces today the launch of the Vector, a full-featured, low power, EPIC single board computer (SBC) based on the Intel Atom Z5xx processor. At under 7W of power consumption and with no fans required, Vector delivers the multimedia and I/O performance of the Intel Atom Z5xx processor family while minimizing power and footprint. The flexibility and performance capabilities of the Eurotech Vector SBC meet requirements for applications in transportation, industrial, medical, and defense markets.

Vector is available in an EPIC form factor of 4.5 x 6.5 inches. It offers dual CAN interfaces, serial ports, high speed USB, and Gigabit Ethernet. Multimedia capabilities include dual display support, VGA and LVDS interfaces, touchscreen and backlight. Vector offers flexibility for the OEM developer providing a wide range power supply unit of 7 to 25 VDC, 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.

"With Vector, Eurotech builds on our low power, small footprint design expertise with the Intel Atom platform," says Pete Dombrowski, Director of Engineering for Eurotech Inc. "The SBC design is targeted for customers who want to simply plug a single board into their design and go to market quickly. We have built a very flexible product through a range of I/O, boot, expansion, and operating system options, all backed by Eurotech's strong focus to help our customers move into production as quickly as possible."

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 operating system options.
