Rugged Pico-ITX SBC offers dual GbE, drives dual displays

Apr 16, 2015 — by Eric Brown — 1,866 views

Seco unveiled a Pico-ITX SBC with an Atom E3800 SoC and featuring SATA, dual display, and dual GbE ports, mini-PCIe, and industrial temperature operation.

Like Seco’s recent μQ7-BT-J Qseven module, the new SECOpITX-BT SBC supports Intel’s Atom E3800 system-on-chips. In this case, you can run Linux or Windows on the full product range, from the single-core, 1.46GHz Atom E3815 (5W TDP) to the quad-core, 1.91GHz E3845 (10W). There are also a number of dual-core options including the fairly new 1.33GHz E3805 model, which lacks a GPU or support for Intel Burst mode or Hyper-Treading, and runs at a low 3 Watts.

When equipped with the Atom E3805, the SECOpITX-BT is ideal for “headless applications and IIoT smart gateways,” says Seco. Otherwise, the SBC, which supports -40 to 85°C temperatures, is designed for industrial and automotive applications in harsh environments, says the company.

Like the Congatec Conga-PA3 and Kontron pITX-E38, the 100 x72mm SECOpITX-BT complies with the Pico-ITX standard. The board supports up to 8GB of DDR3L RAM, as well as an optional eMMC disk of unstated capacity. A microSD slot and SATA connector are also available.

The SECOpITX-BT features two gigabit Ethernet ports, as well as a SIM card slot for potential wireless support. An HDMI port is provided, along with internal LVDS and VGA/RGB interfaces, and dual displays are possible.

The SBC provides two coastline USB 3.0 ports, as well as three more USB 2.0 interfaces. There’s also audio I/O onboard, as well as an RS-232/422/485 and a mini-PCIe slot. An expansion connector is also provided.
