November 5, 2015 - ICOP Technology introduces VDX3-6755 PC/104 single board computer (SBC) with 1.0 GHz dual-core DM&P Vortex86 DX3 processor and EtherCAT support for ISA bus based industrial control technologies. The VDX3-6755 with 2GB DDR3 not only delivers full PC/104 compliance and native ISA bus support without bridges but also comprehensive support of the open EtherCAT standard for connected control automation technologies in real-time environments. OEMs benefit from increased return on investment by continued deployment of existing ISA bus based applications for a further seven years.
To adapt field applications in harsh environments, the SBC is equipped with one CAN 2.0 bus module and two RS-232 interfaces that are fully isolated against overvoltage of up to 2.5kV for both power and signal lines. The RS485 is protected against electro static discharge (ESD) of +/- 15kV. Even the two USB ports and PS/2 keyboard/mouse are 2.5kV surge protected. Additionally, it fully supports the extended temperature range from -20°C to + 70°C.
The VDX3-6755 delivers powerful graphics and supports full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 at 60 Hertz dual display for VGA and 24-bit LVDS as well as optional video capture functionalities. This makes the new PC/104 board also suitable for cost effective vision system designs in pick & place and inspection applications. For Ethernet and EtherCAT connectivity, the VDX3-6755 is equipped with 1x Gigabit LAN based on the RTL8111F PCIe LAN chip, and one processor integrated R6040 10/100Mbps LAN supporting the Acontis EtherCAT Master Stack for real-time Linux and DOS.
The VDX3-6755 supports a wide range of operating systems - from DOS to Windows CE6.0, CE7.0, Windows 7, WES7, Windows XP Professional, Windows Embedded Standard (XPe), POS Ready (WePOS) and Embedded Linux, X-Linux and Linux up to QNX (BSP), VxWorks (BSP) and FreeBSD.
