SBC Offers A Garden Of I/O, Low Power Operation

WinSystems’ ITX-N-3800 industrial single-board computer (SBC) in a NANO-ITX form factor measures 4.27 in. x 4.27 in. (120 mm x 120 mm) and provides dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports, four USB 3.0 host ports, DisplayPort, and VGA and LVDS video outputs. The SBC also includes PCIe and Mini-PCIe expansion slots. It is offered as a low-cost solution for industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications, including industrial control and medical.


The ITX-N-3800 is a full-featured SBC with onboard I/O that uses the Intel Atom E3800 Atom™ (formerly Bay Trail) processor, which is available in single, dual and quad cores. The E3800 is a system-on-chip (SoC) specifically designed for embedded systems. The ITX-N-3800 also has a 204-pin SODIMM that supports up to 8GB of DDR3-LV System RAM and two high-speed SATA storage interfaces.
