Industrial embedded computing leader WINSYSTEMS has unveiled its latest peripheral component interconnect express (PCIe)/104 OneBank single board computer, which enables cybersecurity and root-of-trust functionality through its onboard hardware Trusted Platform Module (TPM-2.0-compliant) security device. The PX1-C441 also offers improved memory access via its soldered low power double data rate random access memory (LPDDR4 RAM) — up to 8 GB — and delivers better thermal performance at extended temperatures.
“Customers in the aerospace, Mil/COTS, industrial IoT, transportation and energy management realms are enabling ever-higher levels of cybersecurity and processing capacity to operate their critical infrastructure applications,” said WINSYSTEMS technical sales director George T. Hilliard. “Our PX1-C441 SBC offers a solution to these requirements and a bridge to the expansive ecosystem of hardware solutions available from PC/104 suppliers.”
The PX1-C441 provides secure and trusted data and outstanding performance. With its discrete onboard TPM-2.0 hardware, product designers are not limited to firmware-based TPM implementation or forced to add thermal cooling devices to their RAM. This eliminates the mechanical and mounting issues associated with using an external approach. Further, the lower-power, soldered RAM increases the board’s shock and vibration performance. WINSYSTEMS’ small-form-factor secure compute engine can be used with new or existing PCIe/104 Type 2 and OneBank-compatible I/O modules, such as its PX1-I416 and PX1-I440.
The PX1-C441 single board computer with improved cyber security hardware is founded on the powerful Intel Atom E3900 processor, available as dual- or quad-core. It features Intel Time-Coordinated Computing Tools for latency-sensitive real-time applications and IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol. And, it supports an operating temperature range of -40° C to 85° C.
This super-secured embedded system provides support for multiple displays and input/output channels. These include dual Ethernet, one USB 3.2 Gen. 1 type C and eight USB 2.0, 24 GPIO with Event Sense, four serial ports and one serial console port with dedicated RS232 transceiver. Expansion options consist of PCIe/104 OneBank and an M.2 expansion socket. The new power button and reset header are welcome additions.
