  I/O Features

Aries PC/104-<i>Plus</i> SBCAries incorporates a perfect combination of highly advanced I/O features, including 3 USB 2.0 ports and 1 USB 3.0 port, 4 programmable RS-232/422/485 ports, 2 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet ports, and 2 SATA ports.

A multi-use MiniCard socket auto-selects for either a PCIe MiniCard or mSATA flashdisk. This dual function socket can be used to add compact additional I/O or mass storage to your system. The dedicated SATA connector can be used with off-board SATA devices and also supports use of a board-mounted miniature SATA disk-on-module for a smaller overall system envelope with less cables.

Aries provides 4 RS-232/422/485 ports using multiprotocol transceivers, one per port. All configuration features are fully programmable as well as configurable in the BIOS screens, including protocol and line termination for RS-422/485. In RS-422 mode, both half duplex and full duplex line termination can be selected.

Aries supports two 10/100/1000 high speed Gigabit Ethernet ports derived from Intel I210IT PCIe Gigabit Ethernet controllers. A latching connector is used to bring these ports off board instead of RJ-45 jacks, optimizing space on the board and increasing ruggedness. Activity status of the Ethernet ports can be read from LEDs.

Aries includes miniature rugged latching connectors for most I/O, including LVDS LCD, as shown in the photo below. Latching connectors improve the ruggedness of the SBC, enhancing Aries’ performance in harsh environments.

  Rugged Features

Aries PC/104-<i>Plus</i> SBCThe Aries family includes a full set of rugged design features to enable reliable use in vehicle, wide temperature, high vibration, and other harsh environments:

  • Aries is designed and built with industrial range temperature components and wide temperature design considerations. The board has been tested and qualified for use in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +85°C. All models feature wide temperature operation off the shelf with no pre-screening required.
  • A thicker PCB of 2.4mm (shown above) increases rigidity and enhances long-term reliability.
  • All I/O connectors, except HDMI, DisplayPort, and USB 3.0, provide positive locking connections for confident performance in vehicle or other high vibration environments.
  • Aries is compatible with MIL-STD-202-G shock and vibration test requirements.
  • The system memory is soldered on board for increased ruggedness, eliminating potential failures often associated with SO-DIMM sockets and improving high temperature reliability.
  • Aries PC/104-<i>Plus</i> SBC with heatsinkFor custom configurations, all jumpers can be replaced with 0 ohm resistors soldered into dedicated locations on the board. In addition, the number of jumpers has been reduced by offering software configuration of all serial port features.
  • Aries can operate over the full industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C without a fan, due to its use of an integrated bottom-mounted heat spreader for effective cooling. The heat spreader contacts the bottom-mounted processor, memory, and other key heat producing components and provides efficient heat transfer from these ICs to the mounting surface (enclosure wall). A traditional 0.5″ high heat sink accessory is available for applications that require a non-contact installation method.

Data Acquisition

Aries is available with a complete analog and digital data acquisition (DAQ) circuit integrated onto the board. The features of the Aries DAQ circuit surpass those found on most other embedded SBCs to provide a comprehensive, professional quality subsystem backed with top of the line software support. “A” models include the full DAQ circuit with both analog and digital I/O features, while “N” models include only the digital I/O features.
