San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 21, 2013
VersaLogic Corp., the industry's most trusted embedded computer company, today announced at DESIGN West 2013 a new portfolio of Mini PCIe modules. Mini PCIe modules provide a simple, economical, standardized way to add I/O and storage functions to embedded computer products. Unlike typical expansion boards, Mini PCIe allows additional functions to be added to a system with almost no increase in overall package size.
VersaLogic’s new Mini PCIe modules are unique in that they are all designed for high reliability in demanding environments. They are all rated for operation over the full industrial temperature range (-40º to +85ºC), and for high shock and vibration (MIL-STD-202G).
"Our customers told us that they needed more I/O flexibility and that typical expansion cards were too bulky or expensive for a single I/O function. In response, we seized the initiative and today we are pleased to announce the first portfolio of industrial temperature, rugged Mini PCIe modules," said Gary Schultz, Director of Marketing for VersaLogic. “These modules will enable our customers to economically add functionality to their systems for a competitive advantage, while maintaining the high reliability that is the cornerstone of VersaLogic’s reputation.”
Designed for Extreme Environments
All of VersaLogic’s modules are designed and tested for industrial temperature (-40º to +85ºC) operation and meet MIL-STD-202G specifications to withstand high impact and vibration. Latching connectors provide additional protection within harsh environments. All of VersaLogic’s Mini PCIe modules are manufactured to IPC-A-610 Class 2 standards. Class 3 assembly is optionally available for most modules where extreme reliability is required.
The Mini PCIe modules announced today include Analog Input, with eight analog input channels; One Gigabit Ethernet Interface; Serial + GPIO with four RS-232/422/485 ports; SATA Adapter; GPS Receiver, with support for GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and QZSS; AES Encrypted Solid-State Drive, including 8 and 32 GB models; Wi-Fi, supporting Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n; and mSATA Drive, with 4, 16, and 32 GB models.
