PCI-104 Single Board Computer
The Wildcat is an embedded single board computer (SBC) featuring an Intel 2nd generation Core 2
Duo processor. Based on the PCI-104 industry standard form factor, the Wildcat supports the PCI
stackable expansion bus on a 4.21” by 3.78” footprint. With its combination of ultra-high performance
(up to 2.26 GHz), mid-range power consumption (19.5W typ.), ruggedness, and compact size, the
Wildcat is an ideal embedded computer solution for medical, security, defense, transportation, and
industrial markets. Potential applications include flight navigation, guidance systems, and evolving
applications that rely on fast on-board processing of large amounts of data.
Like all VersaLogic products, the Wildcat is designed to support OEM applications where high
reliability and long-term availability are required. From application design-in support, to its 5+ year
production life guarantee, the Wildcat supports serious embedded applications. The Wildcat is fully
RoHS compliant. Customization is available, even in low OEM quantities.
Driven by a 2nd generation Intel Core 2 Duo processor designed specifically for embedded
applications, the Wildcat runs up to 2.26 GHz. Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® technology provides
dynamic processor frequency scaling to meet instantaneous performance needs while minimizing
power draw and heat dissipation. This allows users to fine-tune the balance of power conservation
and performance to suit their application needs.
Intels GS45 + ICH9M chipset offers graphics core speeds up to 533 MHz for high-end graphics,
advanced 3D rendering, high-definition video playback, and media acceleration for video CODECs.
Analog VGA and LVDS flat panel video interfaces support flexible display configurations including
Extended Desktop, Clone, and Twin display modes.
Wildcats standard on-board features include gigabit Ethernet, an SO-DIMM socket for up to 4 GB
DDR3 RAM, four USB 2.0 ports, one serial port, dual SATA interface, support for HD audio, and a
MiniBlade socket for removable flash storage. Support for keyboard, mouse, and other devices is
provided via USB. VersaLogic’s SPX expansion interface creates additional access to cost-effective
plug-in I/O solutions.
Available in both standard (0° to +60°C) and extended (-40° to +85°C) temperature versions; the
Wildcat meets MIL-STD-202G specifications for shock and vibration. The Wildcat features transient
voltage suppression (TVS) devices on many external connections for enhanced electrostatic
discharge (ESD) protection in the field.
