EtherCAT connectivity for ISA bus based industrial control technologies

Taipei, Taiwan / Frankfurt, Germany, November 3, 2015 – ICOP Technology introduces a new rugged PC/104 Single Board Computer (SBC) with 1.0 GHz dual-core DM&P Vortex86 DX3 processor and EtherCAT support for ISA bus based industrial control technologies. The new ICOP Technology VDX3-6755 PC/104 SBC with 2GB DDR3 not only delivers full PC/104 compliance and native ISA bus support without bridges but also comprehensive support of the open EtherCAT standard for connected control automation technologies in real-time environments. OEMs benefit from increased return on investment by continued deployment of existing ISA bus based applications for a further seven years.

To adapt field applications in harsh environments, the new ICOP Technology PC/104 SBC is equipped with one CAN 2.0 bus module and two RS-232 interfaces that are fully isolated against overvoltage of up to 2.5kV for both power and signal lines. The RS485 is protected against electro static discharge (ESD) of +/- 15kV. Additionally, it fully supports the extended temperature range from -20°C to + 70°C.

The DM&P Vortex86 DX3 integrated GPU delivers powerful graphics and supports full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 at 60 Hertz dual display for VGA and 24-bit LVDS as well as optional video capture functionalities. This makes the new PC/104 board also suitable for cost effective vision system designs in pick & place and inspection applications.

For Ethernet and EtherCAT connectivity, the PC/104 VDX3-6755 SBC is equipped with 1x Gigabit LAN based on the RTL8111F PCIe LAN chip, and one processor integrated R6040 10/100Mbps LAN supporting the Acontis EtherCAT Master Stack for real-time Linux and DOS.

The ICOP Technology PC/104 SBC supports a wide range of operating systems – from DOS to Windows CE6.0, CE7.0, Windows 7, WES7, Windows XP Professional, Windows Embedded Standard (XPe), POS Ready (WePOS) and Embedded Linux, X-Linux and Linux right up to QNX (BSP), VxWorks (BSP) and FreeBSD. The ICOP Technology VDX3-6755 CPU board is available now.

ICOP also provides new ETX Computer-on-Modules based on new Vortex86DX3 SoC which support legacy applications and are long-term available.
