Swordtail Complete Arm® Cortex®-A9 Wirel

Versalogic's Swordtail is a complete single board computer (SBC). It features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth®, and cellular options for applications that operate without a wired data connection. These Arm-based computers are available with power-efficient, dual- or quad-core i.MX6 CPUs. The Swordtail is ideal for applications that demand rugged low-power solutions such as industrial machine automation, transportation, medical, kiosks, and industrial IoT.

Unlike Arm-based modules, Swordtail is a complete board-level computer. Additional carrier boards, connector boards, or I/O expansion boards are not required for operation. Swordtail boards are delivered with on-board soldered-down RAM, ready to plug-in and run. To simplify mounting and future upgrades, the Swordtail leverages the COM Express® standard for its footprint and mounting points.

Like all VersaLogic products, the Swordtail SBC is engineered and tested to be rugged. It is fully validated for operation in unforgiving environments with extreme temperatures, mechanical shock, and vibration.

In addition to the wireless connections, the swordtail provides connectivity via Gigabit Ethernet, USB, GPIO, and CAN bus interfaces. HDMI video, audio support, and LVDS panel/touchscreen support are also included. Both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios are included on board. A NimbleLink Skywire™ socket supports a wide range of optional cellular and other wireless plug-ins.
