New Embedded Technology has introduced the A-Brain mobile compact computer baseboard, designed specifically for applications such as androids and robots, UAVs and wearable computers.

The computer baseboard is compatible with COM Express compact size standard computer modules.

It has been designed for applications where extended temperature, shock and vibration are a critical environmental factor.

The baseboard is also suitable for fixed outdoor settings requiring small size and in environments that are not appropriate for regular computers, such as security monitoring, RFID control, green energy data acquisition, outdoor kiosk, and harsh external research data collection.

The A-Brain features a baseboard measuring 95mm2 and includes on the top I/O side two low-profile RJ45 Gigabit LAN connectors, Mini-PCIe I/O board socket with hard screw/nut mounting and standard Type II CF IDE Flash for diskless booting.

Also available are two SATA ports with one standard and one locking connector.

Included on multiple locking connectors are eight USB 2.0 ports, four RS-232 ports, VGA, eight digitally buffered GPIO, and Reset/Power/External LEDs multi-use connection.

The fourth serial port can become a RS-422/485 interface as a factory option.

The A-Brain is claimed to be unique due to the capability of utilising any embedded COM Express CPU module that meets the PCMIG standard for its processing while providing additional I/O expansion particular to the mobile and military market.

The unit can be used with a passive cooling plate with 95 x 95mm SBC modules.

Whether the application requires a high-end dual-core processor, a low-power Intel Atom processor or an Arm processor, New Embedded Technology said it can provide a system solution to match a specific requirement.

Power can be provided to the A-Brain through a small locking 12-pin power connector with a cable adapter available that is able to be connected to any ATX power supply.

New Embedded Technology can also provide internal DC/DC mounted ATX power supplies, with models available to be powered by 12V regulated, 24-28V and 12V battery power sources and up to 120W of ATX output.

Features of the A-Brain board include: COM Express standard baseboard; small size – 95 x 95mm (3.74 x 3.74in); 1X or USB MINI-PCIe I/O expansion; two low-profile rear-mounted RJ45 10/100/1000 Ethernet LAN ports; eight USB 2.0 ports and four RS-232 COM ports(factory RS-422/485 option); two SATA ports and a Type II Compact Flash IDE socket support; VGA, reset, and power connections with ATX power support; rugged mil spec locking I/O connectors(vibration); and extended temperature operation standard (-40C to 85C).

The A-Brain is designed to last longer than most COM Express standard modules with a minimum five-year life span.
