VersaLogic announces VL-EPMs-U1 serial communications module

May 5, 2010 — VersaLogic announced the VL-EPMs-U1 serial communications module with optional on-board GPS capabilities. Based on the SUMIT-104 form factor, the VL-EPMs-U1 supports SUMIT and PC/10™ stackable expansion buses. The VL-EPMs-U1 is available in several configurations to meet communications, data logging, navigation, tracking, and/or timing requirements in embedded systems.With up to six serial ports, the VL-EPMs-U1 provides traditional hardwired serial I/O functions for legacy communications. When equipped with the optional Trimble® Lassen® iQ GPS receiver, the VL-EPMs-U1 delivers complete position, velocity, and time (PVT) data for use in host applications. The GPS receiver provides simultaneous 12-channel operation and high sensitivity for reliable tracking in difficult environments. The GPS data is accessed through two on-board serial ports using popular NMEA 0183, TSIP, TAIP and DGPS protocols.With a compact rugged form factor and low power consumption (700 mW typ.), the VL-EPMs-U1 is well suited to size, weight, and power constrained applications. A full industrial temperature rating (-40° to +85°C) and certification to MIL-STD-202G specifications for mechanical shock and vibration ensure reliable operation in harsh, mobile, and/or remote environments.Based on an industry standard 16C550 I/O controller, the VL-EPMs-U1 is fully compatible with a variety of popular operating systems including Microsoft® Windows, Windows Embedded, Linux, VxWorks, and QNX using standard serial I/O software drivers.This product supports VersaLogic’s line of SUMIT-enabled products, including:

  • Komodo - SUMIT-EPIC SBC featuring an Intel Core2 Duo processor
  • Ocelot - SUMIT-104 SBC featuring an Intel Atom processor Z5xx
  • VL-EPMs-E1 - SUMIT-104 network interface module with PCI Express Mini Card socket
  • VL-EPMs-PS1 - SUMIT-104 in-stack power supply module
  • The VL-EPMs-U1 includes VersaLogic’s 5+ year production life guarantee and is customizable, even in low OEM quantities. Customization options include conformal coating, revision locks, custom labeling, customized testing and screening, connector changes, and redesign services. Pricing is from $155 to $280 (depending on model) in OEM quantities
