Diamond Helios SBC, 800MHz Vortex86DX, 256MB RAM, data acquisition and video HLV800-256AV
Helios is a low power, mid-range performance PC/104 form factor single board computer combining a highly integrated CPU with Diamond Systems’ renowned high-accuracy data acquisition circuitry on a single board, reducing size and cost while increasing ruggedness. Helios utilizes a Vortex integrated single chip CPU operating at 800MHz and 256MB of DRAM soldered on-board.
Helios incorporates advanced features such as four USB 2.0 ports, an IDE hard drive interface, mounting capability for a solid state flashdisk up to 4GB, and CRT/LVDS LCD graphics. Helios also provides a 10/100Base-T Ethernet interface, two RS-232 serial ports, two RS-232/422/485 serial ports and legacy keyboard and mouse interfaces.
Helios includes an on-board 2MB bootable flash drive with FreeDOS installed. This flash drive offers additional cost savings for DOS applications, since no additional storage medium is required. It also enables you to quickly verify Helios’s operation. Just connect keyboard, monitor, and power, and Helios boots up to DOS so you can verify proper working condition as well as test the various features on the single board computer.
Helios is extremely rugged, featuring on-board soldered DRAM and -40°C to +85°C fan-less operation. Optional hardwired jumpers and latching connectors are available for increased resistance to shock and vibration. Conformal coating is available as an extra cost option.
