VersaLogic high-performance PC104 embedded computer aims at space-limited applications

TUALATIN, Ore. VersaLogic has released a new family of PCIe/104 computers with a high-performance Intel Xeon processor and x16 PCIe expansion.

The highest-performance models in the "Sabertooth" embedded computer family sport an Intel Xeon-E 6-core processor. In addition, a 3-bank expansion connector provides wide bandwidth expansion capability with its x16 PCIe Gen 3 bus, which supports plug-in (stacking) connection of high-bandwidth peripherals such as GPUs, FPGA, and 10 Gb Ethernet.

The performance numbers also come with as much as 32 GB memory (error-correcting in Xeon models) and soldered-down 128 GB NVMe fast read/write storage.

For applications not requiring hex-core Xeon performance, or a board that draws less power and dissipates less heat, a model supporting the 9th-generation Intel Core i3 processor is also available.

The expansion connector supports 4 PCIe x1, USB, and SM Bus; additional interfaces include SATA III, USB 3.2, Gigabit Ethernet, serial, I2C, GPIO, and Mini DisplayPort connections.

The Sabertooth is a compact PC104 format solution, measuring 96 x 90 x 43 mm, which aims it squarely at space-limited applications. In addition, the Sabertooth is designed and tested for full industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) operation and meets MIL-STD-202H specifications for shock and vibration.
