Osprey Embedded Processing Unit

VersaLogic launches the Osprey, a low-power, high-performance, ultra-small embedded computer with quad-, dual-, and single-core processor options

Image of VersaLogic's Osprey Embedded Processing UnitVersaLogic introduces the Osprey, an extremely small, rugged, and embedded computer. This next generation of the VersaLogic embedded processing unit (EPU) format combines processor, memory, video, and system I/O into an extremely compact, full-function embedded computer. Driven by the low-power Intel® 22 nm Silvermont microarchitecture, the Osprey provides up to 1.9 GHz of performance with quad-, dual-, and single-core processor (CPU) options. The computer has a footprint just slightly larger than a credit card. It combines the 4th generation Intel® Atom™ “Bay Trail” processor, with system interfaces, in a form-factor designed to withstand extreme temperature, impact, and vibration.

Osprey’s I/O connectivity includes dual Gigabit Ethernet ports with network boot capability, one USB 3.0, four USB 2.0 ports, I2C, eight digital I/O’s, and two serial ports. A SATA 3 Gbits/s interface supports high-capacity rotating or solid-state drives. Full- and half-sized mini PCIe sockets, a microSD socket, and on-board eMMC (on some models) provide flexible solid-state drive (SSD) options. Systems can be enhanced by leveraging the mini PCIe sockets with plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet, Firewire, and other mini PCIe cards/modules.

As with all VersaLogic products, the Osprey 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 Osprey provides a durable embedded computer solution with an excellent cost of ownership.
