VersaLogic announces USB expansion modules for SUMIT products

Eugene, OR — Nov. 18, 2010 — VersaLogic Corp., a Eugene, Oregon-based manufacturer of embedded computer products, today announced the release of two new expansion modules for use with SUMIT™-based products. The expansion modules feature the SUMIT (Stackable Unified Module Interconnect Technology) interface standard developed by the Small Form Factor Special Interest Group (SFF-SIG™). The SUMIT interface provides a variety of signaling options for system expansion, including multiple high-speed PCI Express (PCIe) lanes, USB, LPC, SPI, and SMBus.

The expansion modules are the first of the new “SUMIT-micro™” format, which is 1/3 the width of PC/104 or SUMIT-104 expansion modules.  SUMIT-micro expansion boards are 90 x 32 mm, versus SUMIT-104 boards which are 90 x 96 mm.  SUMIT-micro boards attach to the SUMIT connector and are secured via two mounting holes using standard standoffs.

These new expansion boards provide up to four additional USB ports for SUMIT-based systems. The VL-EPHs-B1A model provides four USB ports (two Type A connectors and two on pin headers).  The VL-EPHs-B1B provides three USB ports (one Type A connector and two on pin headers) and one eUSB flash memory expansion site.  Both versions are designed for full industrial (-40º to +85ºC) temperature operation, are RoHS compliant, and meet MIL-STD-202G specifications for mechanical shock and vibration for use in harsh environments.

The VL-EPHs-B1 products include VersaLogic’s 5+ year production life guarantee and are customizable even in low OEM quantities. Customization options include conformal coating, revision locks, custom labeling, customized testing and screening, connector changes, and additional services.

VersaLogic’s SUMIT-micro expansion modules can be used to complement any SUMIT-enabled SBC including VersaLogic’s PC/104-sized Intel® Atom™ Z5xx or EPIC-sized Intel Core™2 Duo single board computers.  These expansion modules are available now. Pricing is around $40.00 in OEM quantities. Contact Sales@VersaLogic.com for more information.
