Date: 03/26/2009

Product Highlights
  • Atmel 200MHz ARM9 Processor
  • LCD and Backlight Controller
  • Resistive Touchscreen Controller
  • 10/100 Ethernet
  • One USB Device and Two USB Host Ports
  • CAN Bus 2.0B Interface
  • Serial, Digital, and Analog I/O
  • Low Power Requirements
  • -40C - +85C Operating Temperature Range
  • Includes Windows CE 6.0 BSP

The SBC-R9 single board computer delivers RISC computing power combined with a wealth of I/O features in a compact footprint. The design uses the latest embedded software environment and is based on the Atmel AT91SAM9263 microcontroller boasting a 32-bit ARM instruction set for maximum performance. The SBC-R9 is the perfect platform for embedded applications requiring small size, wide operating temperature range, and flexible I/O connectivity.

Available with up to 256MB RAM and 256MB Flash memory, the unmatched I/O features of the SBC-R9 extend the board's possible uses beyond traditional RISC applications. Standard I/O includes Ethernet, serial, USB, CAN Bus, digital and analog interface. System designers can directly drive TFT/STN LCDs from the on-board video controller, and the board also includes a resistive touchscreen controller, making it perfect for human-machine interface applications.

To provide the fastest time to market, the Windows CE 6.0 BSP binary and low-level drivers for system I/O are included. Additionally, the SBC-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. The Talos 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.

Measuring just 7.5" x 5.0" in size, the SBC-R9 is small enough to fit in most embedded applications and is rated for a full -40C - +85C operating temperature range. The SBC-R9 is priced from $599.00, and a QuickStart Development Kit is available. For applications with specialized hardware requirements, developers can use the SBC-R9 as a platform for application development while Sealevel designs a customized target system specific for the user?s application requirements.
