Designed for harsh environmental conditions in mobile markets, the SC24 single-board computer for display and box computer applications is equipped with the G-series processor by AMD. It provides a CAN interface. All peripheral interfaces are led to an extension card.

"THE MODULAR DESIGN IS QUALIFIED and tested by MEN to meet the operating temperatures of -40 to +85°C and prepared for e1 certification,” said sales director Aurelius Wosylus from AMD. The product is suitable for example for fleet management systems and for digital signage applications. It is qualified for rolling stock applications (EN 50155).
The 1,5-GHz processor offers integrated 3D graphics and video acceleration. The board provides up to 2 x 2 display ports. To these ports you may interface two displays with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixel plus another two with 1920 x 1200 pixel.
The product comes with 1 to 4 GiB DDR3 SDRAM. Besides CAN connectivity, it features two Ethernet, nine USB, and four UART ports. MEN (Germany) founded in 1982 is focused on mission-critical applications. “We know all the standards and regulations for such applications,” explained Manfred Schmitz from MEN. “We have specialized ourselves to railway, aircraft, and commercial vehicle industries.” The company supplies hardware to many of the leading rail vehicle manufacturers. We never make application software,” said Manfred Schmitz, “and we never install our products in machines and vehicles. This is the business of our customers.”
