VersaLogic has added a new model to its “Swordtail”
product family, the latest in their line of production-ready Arm-based embedded
computers. Available with either the NXP i.MX6 Quad (quad core), or the i.MX6
DualLite (dual core) processors, the Swordtail includes on-board Wi-Fi,
Bluetooth and a socket for plug-in cellular radios. The new model adds on-board
eMMC storage functionality. At home in
hostile environments, the compact 95mm x 95 mm computer board is rated for
operation at full industrial temperature range (-40°C to +85°C).
The new model includes soldered-down 8GB eMMC Flash as a
bootable on-board storage medium. This
is in addition to the micro-SD socket included on all models in the family. Swordtail
boards are well suited for transmitting maintenance or diagnostic information
without the need for a wired connection. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios are
included on board, and a NimbleLink Skywire™ socket supports a wide range of
cellular and wireless plug-ins.
The Swordtail embedded computer boards designed for deployment
into demanding industrial, smart city, and transportation applications

and I2C interface. In addition, MCOTS (military commercial off-the-shelf)
versions can accommodate up to 32 GB of on-board flash storage.

applications in quantities as low as 100 pieces. Designed and tested for
industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) operation, VersaLogic’s Swordtail also
meets MIL-STD-202H specifications for impact and vibration. Engineered and
validated for ruggedness, Swordtail excels in unforgiving environments. VersaLogic
