Published 2012-04-03

Habey (USA) released the EMB-4670 palm-sized embedded board with Intel's Atom E6xx processor and CAN connectivity for application in industrial automation, digital signage, transportation, network video recording, in-vehicle infotainment, interactive client, military, finance and video surveillance.

THE US-MANUFACTURER OF EMBEDDED COMPUTER announced the EMB-4670 4,5-inch (115 mm x 165 mm) embedded board. It is built with Intel's Atom E620/E640/E660 processor and EG20T chipset. The board features a CAN interface for transit applications. Two GB-Ethernet, four USB, six serial ports (EIA-422/EIA-485), an 8-bit GPIO, an SD slot as well as PC/104 and PCIe interfaces are offered.
The board has an average consumption of 8,4 W. It brings a processing speed of up to 1,3 GHz, decodes full HD videos, and fulfills such Intel technologies as "Virtualization", "SpeedStep" and "Execute disable bit". Equipped with onboard 1-GB DDRII memory and multiple options for solid state storage, the device is built to operate under moderate vibrations at temperatures of 0 °C to 60 °C with resistance to fluctuating voltages common in transit applications.
The device is able to hardware decode and encode video at full HD 1080p and 1080i respectively. Integrated within the processor is the Intel Graphic Media Accelerator (GMA 600) graphic engine. A VGA port and an 18-bit LVDS are onboard to support hardware accelerated HD video decoding and encoding. Supported are MPEG4 part 2, H.264, WMV, VC1 formats.
