Computing box and SBC
Advantech (Taiwan) has presented two products powered by the TI Sitara AM3352 Cortex-A8 1 GHz high performance processor: the RSB-4220 3,5-inch single board computer and the UBC-FA30 computing box.
THE SITARA AM3352 USES ONLY 2,8 W AND COMES with I/O features such as CAN, UART, Giga LAN, and more. Both products are suited for applications in industrial automation and IoT devices. They are both powered by the TI AM3352 Cortex A8 processor and come equipped with 512 MiB of DDR3 memory and 4 GiB flash ROM onboard. The I/O coastline of the products are optimized specifically for industrial applications including: 6 UART with ESD protection, 8 GPIO, as well as 1 CAN, 1 USB 2.0, 1 SD card slot, 2 Giga LAN, and 1 I2C with 5 V interface. The RSB-4220 also supports Mini PCIe, EIA-485, and a single channel 18-bit LVDS interface. Both products can also be applied to a variety of applications in IoT and automation control. They offer power of only 2 W under normal operation with 12 VDC, 19 VDC, or 24 VDC.
The units come with Linux kernel version 3.2.0 and a complete Board Support Package to help users develop their own applications. RSB-4220 also supports QT and comes with a UI tool for graphical user interface (GUI) development, along with source code examples. With non-GUI features like thread management, network support, and a unified cross-platform API for file handling, QT can be utilized for developing all kinds of industrial applications.
UBC-FA30 is a RISC computing box that uses RSB-4220 as the motherboard. In addition to the housing, users can install it onto a wall via standard screws, or free standing in the horizontal plane. It also has a complete software BSP with Linux package. It was designed for those automation applications that need multiple I/Os and connections.
