LBC-GX500 highly-integrated, single board computer (SBC) from WinSystems intended for machine-to-machine connectivity and features a variety of wired and wireless options.

LBC-GX500 from WinSystems highly-integrated, single board computer (SBC) is designed for machine-to-machine connectivity and offers a wide variety of wired and wireless options.

SBC is said to provide an open and powerful platform for management of geographically distributed machinery using GSM/GPRS/CDMA/802.11/ZigBee wireless communications. It also includes a 10/100 Ethernet port, four USB 2.0 and two USB 1.1 ports, four RS-232 COM channels, two RS-232/422/485 COM channels, plus an optional dial-up POTS modem. The LBC-GX500 can act as a gateway, hub or protocol converter. The board will operate from -40 to +85 °C for rugged applications requiring an embedded PC and its associated connectivity options. Target applications include industrial automation, test and measurement, petrochemical, communication gateways/routers, and medical/diagnostic equipment.

LBC-GX500 supports even more I/O expansion with video with CRT/flat panel/ LVDS interfaces, 48 digital I/O lines, AC97 audio, and the PC/104 and PC/104- Plus connectors. It is powered by an AMD Geode x86 processor with support for MMX
