Avalue Technology has released a 3.5in (8.9cm) single board computer, which is said to be ideal for in-vehicle infotainment, medical instrument, IP media phone and gateway service applications.

The new ECM-QB single board computer is powered by the Intel Atom E620/640/660/680 series processor.

The new Intel Atom E6xx series is a new system-on-chip (SoC) Atom-based processor that includes a memory controller, a 3D graphics engine, a high-definition video decoder and a video encoding engine, a display controller, a legacy peripheral controller and a high-definition audio controller on the same die as the central processing unit (CPU).

This SoC solution will provide system builders with support for much smaller housing designs than previous Atom-based chips, according to the company.

In addition, the new chip includes a PCI Express bus interface, allowing flexible connectivity for USB, COM and SATA via an input/output (I/O) chip or PCI Express-compliant add-on cards such as video, audio and graphics.

With the Intel EG20T platform controller hub, Avalue’s ECM-QB supports single-channel 18-/24-bit LVDS and CRT+LVDS multi-display.

The I/O deployment includes two SATA, three RS-232, one RS-422, one RS-485, one CAN, four USB 2.0 and 8-bit GPIO ports.

Two Intel gigabit local-area networks (LANs) and more expansion options with a PCI Express mini card slot and LPC for extra devices are also available.

The ECM-QB can endure wide temperature operation, making it suitable for customers requiring an embedded board for extreme environments.

The 3.5in board is described as an eco-friendly product thanks to its dimension, low power and five- to seven-year-long product life.
