Newt Single Board Computers (SBC)

VersaLogic's Newt (VL-EPIC-17) is an economical, single board computer (SBC) featuring extensive I/O capabilities, very low power consumption, and fanless operation over the full industrial temperature (-40° to 85°C) range. The Newt takes advantage of DMP's Vortex86DX System on Chip (SoC) for 800 MHz performance with only 3.6 W typical power draw. Based on the industry-standard EPIC form factor (4.5 x 6.5 inches), this SBC is an excellent solution for industrial and medical applications with substantial I/O requirements. The Newt is designed for headless applications (no video output), or it may be used with add-on video expansion modules.

Like all VersaLogic products, the Newt 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 Newt provides a durable embedded computer solution with an excellent cost of ownership. The Newt is fully RoHS compliant.
