The Relio R9 delivers RISC computing power with unmatched I/O features and uses the latest embedded software environment. The QuickStart Kit includes the necessary items to help get your idea to market fast.

The Relio R9 is an application-ready platform for your next product design. The system is based on the 200MIPS Atmel AT91SAM9263 microcontroller boasting a 32-bit ARM instruction set for maximum performance. With up to 256MB RAM and 256MB Flash memory, the unmatched I/O features of the Relio R9 extend the possible uses beyond traditional ARM applications. The Relio R9 is the perfect platform for embedded applications requiring small size, wide operating temperature range, and flexible I/O connectivity.

Standard I/O includes Ethernet, serial, USB, CAN bus, digital and analog interface. System designers can directly drive TFT/STN LCDs from the internal video controller and the on-board 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 Relio 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.

For embedded Linux systems, Sealevel provides fully configurable components – cross-compilation toolchain, bootloader, kernel and root filesystem – using a customized BuildRoot with Sealevel patches, additional features and source code samples.

The Relio R9 is housed in a rugged, small enclosure suitable for mounting almost anywhere and is rated for a full -40C to +85C operating temperature range.

To simplify your application development, the QuickStart Kit includes the Relio R9 and the accessories you need to get started.
