Falcon
Embedded Processing Unit
Overview
The Falcon is an extremely small and rugged embedded computer. It has been engineered
and tested to meet the Military and Medical industries’ evolving requirements to develop
smaller, lighter, and lower power embedded systems while adhering to stringent regulatory
standards. Roughly the size of a credit card and less than one inch thick, the Falcon is the
embedded industry’s smallest, lightest, ultra-rugged embedded x86 computer. This embedded
computer, equipped with an Intel Atom E6x0T processor, is designed to withstand extreme
temperature, impact, and vibration.
Details
Driven by an Intel Atom E6x0T processor, the Falcon provides a lot of performance, lower
power consumption (9–11W typical), and a very compact package. The Falcon provides
compatibility with a broad range of standard x86 application development tools for reduced
development time.
The integrated Intel GMA600 graphics core provides hardware-accelerated MPEG-4 / H.264
and MPEG-2 video encoding and decoding. A standard LVDS output supports flat panel
displays. An optional adapter converts the LVDS output to VGA.
Industry-standard system interfaces include Gigabit Ethernet with network boot capability,
four USB 2.0 ports, four serial ports, and Intel High-Definition Audio (HDA). A SATA 3 Gb/s
interface supports high-capacity storage. Dual microSD sockets and a Mini PCIe socket with
mSATA support provide flexible solid-state drive (SSD) options. The Mini PCIe socket also
accommodates plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet, Firewire,
and other mini cards. The Falcon supports an optional Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for
applications that require enhanced hardware-level security functions.
Designed and tested for industrial temperature (-40º to +85ºC) operation, the rugged Falcon
also meets MIL-STD-202G specifications for shock and vibration. Soldered-on RAM and
latching SATA, Ethernet, power, and main I/O connectors provide additional ruggedization
for use in extremely harsh environments. Heat sink or heat plate versions provide fanless
heat dissipation. Falcon is manufactured to IPC-A-610 Class 2 (modified) standards. For
extremely-high-reliability applications, IPC-A-610 Class 3 versions are available.
A wide input voltage range of 8 to 17 volts (12V typ.) simplifies system power supply
requirements. It is fully compatible with 12V automotive applications.
Falcon is compatible with a variety of popular x86 operating systems including Windows,
Windows Embedded, Linux, and VxWorks.
Product customization is available, even in low quantities. Options include a Trusted Platform
Module, conformal coating, BGA underfill, IPC Class 3 assembly, BIOS / splash screen
configuration, application specific testing, BOM revision locks, labeling, etc.
