Aries is a compact, rugged, single board computer that features the Intel E3800 Bay Trail processor in an extended PC/104-Plus form factor. The full rectangular shape provides more coastline for I/O connectors than other boards its size. In this compact form factor, Aries includes a wide range of I/O plus data acquisition functionality, meeting the majority of today's connectivity requirements in a single board.
The family of Aries PC/104-Plus SBCs combine excellent CPU performance, a wealth of PC I/O, and on-board data acquisition circuitry at a competitive price. Available PC I/O includes USB 2.0/3.0, RS-232/422/485, dual Gigabit Ethernet, SATA ports. The data acquisition circuit includes 16 16-bit analog inputs, 4 16-bit analog outputs and 22 digital I/O lines.
Aries supports stackable I/O expansion with PC/104-Plus (ISA + PCI) I/O modules. Aries also provides a dual-use PCIe MiniCard / mSATA socket for additional I/O expansion. I/O modules featuring WiFi, Ethernet, analog I/O, digital I/O, and CAN are available in the PCIe MiniCard form factor, providing compact expandability without increasing the total height of the system.
The Aries SBC was designed with rugged applications in mind. With an operating temperature of -40°C to +85°C, soldered on-board memory, integrated heat spreader for efficient cooling, 50% thicker PCB, and full suite of latching connectors, Aries is the perfect choice for vehicle and other harsh environment applications.
Aries SBCs run Linux, Windows Embedded Standard 7, and Windows Embedded CE. Both Linux and Windows Embedded 7 Software Development Kits are available with bootable images and drivers to get you started on your design project right out of the box.
