VersaLogic takes credit-card sized computers to new heights

Harrier” is the latest embedded computer from Versalogic, and features Intel®’s 5th generation Apollo Lake Atom™ processors with error-correcting memory. The Harrier includes on board power regulation, a TPM 2.0 security chip, USB and Ethernet I/O ports, and dual Mini PCIe expansion sockets. The soldered-on ECC RAM enhances both the reliability and ruggedness of the product.

Aiming high
Applications such as High Altitude Long Endurance (HALE) UAVs and High Altitude Pseudo Satellite (HAPS) systems present a considerable challenge related to memory errors. ECC memory is beneficial in environments where single bit memory errors may occur due to cosmic ray interactions, which increase dramatically at altitude. The Harrier is available with up to 8 GB of Error Correcting Code (ECC) memory to address the risk of memory errors in any high-reliability applications.

The built-in TPM 2.0 security chip provides hardware-level security for applications that require secure log-ins, encrypted data storage, protected files, etc.

Small and tough
Within its 55 x 95 x 27 mm package, the Harrier is ideal for space-limited applications such as in unmanned vehicles, whether on land, underwater or in the air. The Harrier is designed and tested for full industrial temperature operation (-40º to +85ºC) and meets MIL-STD-202H specifications for shock and vibration. In addition, on-board power regulation ensures reliable operation with fluctuating or noisy power sources.

On-board I/O includes dual Gigabit Ethernet, one USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports, and two serial ports. A SATA interface, eMMC Flash, mSATA slot, and a microSD socket provide a range of data storage options. Dual Mini PCIe sockets accommodate plug-in A/D, Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet, FireWire, and other mini cards.

Long-term availability
Like other VersaLogic products, the Harrier is designed from the ground up for long-term availability (10+ year typical production lifecycle).

Customisation services to help customers create unique solutions will be available for the Harrier, even in low OEM quantities. Options include conformal coating, revision locks, custom labelling, testing and screening, etc.

Harrier will be available in production volumes Q1 of 2020. Contact for pre-production opportunities.
