Boston, Massachusetts —EPX-GX single board computer (SBC) from WinSystems targets machine-to-machine applications (M2M) that require a processor, wide variety of I/O points, and connectivity. Introduced last week at the 2005 Embedded Systems Conference in Boston, the new SBC supports 11 on-board I/O functions with even more I/O expansion options via PC/104 modules. It includes various communications links on board, including wired and wireless Ethernet and optional PC/104 expansion modules for cellular, WLAN, and GPS. Applications include robotics, pipelines, process/machine control, and test equipment.

EPX-GX is based on the AMD GX500@1W processor. Pentium-class CPU with an x86-native instruction set and 32 KB of integrated L1 cache runs on Microsoft Windows CE, WindowsXP embedded, Linux, and other x86-compatible operating systems such as VxWorks and QNX. Low power design enables it to operate over the industrial temperature range of–40 to 85 ºC without a fan. Board measures 115 x 165 mm and is compatible with the Embedded Platform for Industrial Computing (EPIC) standard introduced in 2004.
