The SBC1626 combines a fast XScale RISC processor, lots of memory, and StackableUSB I/O capability on a small 104™ Form Factor board. The power-efficient ARM architecture means the SBC1626 draws little power at its full 533MHz clock speed, thus reducing the power supply and cooling requirements of the board. On-board I/O includes 24 TTL digital I/O lines, dual 10/100BASE-T Ethernet, CompactFlash, and four (4) serial ports.
This powerful XScale board is equipped with the latest innovation in I/O expansion, StackableUSB. More than five (5) StackableUSB I/O peripheral boards can be connected top and/or bottom side of the board, which allows maximum flexibility in configuring a system’s I/O requirements.
With up to 64MB of on-board linear flash and 128MB of SDRAM, high-level operating systems, such as Linux and Windows CE, can be installed. For systems requiring additional storage capacity, the on-board CompactFlash connector provides expansion to standard CompactFlash cards.
The SBC1626 core is an IXP420 or IXP425 XScale processor running at 266 or 533MHz. The XScale processor core is clocked at a rate of 266MHz to 533MHz. This variation of the industry-standard ARM architecture is a RISC processor that is designed for fast Ethernet communication with a built-in dual Ethernet controller.
The IXP42x is compatible with 32-bit operating systems. The IXP42x also integrates many peripherals such as dual USB ports, an interrupt controller, dual 16C550 UARTs, a watchdog timer, and a SDRAM controller.
The memory subsystem on the SBC1626 allows many programs to be run without any external storage. 128Mbytes of SDRAM is more than sufficient for many complex programs and operating systems.
The 64Mbyte flash memory contains the bootloader, operating system, and user application code space. Some of the flash can be allocated as a read/write flash drive.
If a larger program or data storage space is required, or if removability is needed, the CompactFlash interface can provide hundreds of megabytes of storage.
Four (4) serial ports allow communication with many different devices. COM1 through COM4 are 16C550-compatible UARTs (with transmit and receive FIFOs). These serial ports have RS232 transceivers and have RTS and CTS modem control lines. Additionally, COM1 is configurable for half-duplex RS485 communication with jumperable termination resistors.
The SBC1626 becomes a powerful front-end processor for control applications with the standard StackableUSB expansion. This popular I/O channel accommodates up to five (5) I/O boards on the top side and/or the bottom side of the board without use of a hub.
For true 32-bit apps development, the SBC1626 supports operating systems such as Linux, Windows CE, and VxWorks®. All have full tool suites available, including compilers and debuggers.
