Sealevel Systems Relio R9 delivers RISC computing power in a compact, rugged package. Packed with a wealth of I/O features and using the latest embedded software environment, the system is based on the Atmel ARM926EJ-S processor with a 32-bit ARM instruction set for maximum performance, company says.

Relio R9 serves embedded applications requiring small size, wide operating temperature range, and flexible I/O connectivity.

For applications with specialized hardware requirements, system designers can use Sealevel Relio R9 as a platform for application development.

The unit is available with up to 256 MB RAM and 256 MB Flash memory, and the I/O features of the Relio R9 extend its possible uses beyond traditional ARM applications, says Sealevel. Standard I/O includes Ethernet, serial, USB, CAN Bus, digital and analog interface. For local or remote I/O expansion, the Relio R9 connects to Sealevel SeaI/O modules via the dedicated RS-485 expansion port and communicates via RS-485 Modbus RTU.

Microsoft Windows CE 6.0 BSP binary and low-level drivers for system I/O are included. Additionally, the R9 software package is equipped with the Sealevel Talos I/O Framework, which offers a high-level object-oriented .NET Compact Framework (CF) device interface. This interface provides an I/O point abstraction layer with built-in support for the specific needs of analog and digital I/O such as gain control and debouncing. Relio R9 is housed in a rugged, small enclosure suitable for mounting almost anywhere, and is rated for a -40 °C to +85 °C operating temperature range.
