November 06, 2015 // By Julien Happich
ICOP Technology's rugged PC/104 Single Board Computer (SBC) is designed with a 1.0 GHz dual-core DM&P Vortex86 DX3 processor and EtherCAT support for ISA bus based industrial control technologies.

The VDX3-6755 PC/104 SBC comes with 2GB DDR3 and delivers full PC/104 compliance and native ISA bus support without bridges. It supports the open EtherCAT standard for connected control automation technologies in real-time environments.

To adapt field applications in harsh environments, the new ICOP Technology PC/104 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 DM&P Vortex86 DX3 integrated GPU 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.
