Product Description

Based on a high integration system-on-a-chip (SOC) processor RISC core, the RE1 combines computing performance, I/O flexibility with an incredibly low power budget.

Board power dissipation starts at 1.5 watts at 333MHz and 2 watts at 500MHz making RE1 base an ideal candidate for operation via Power Over Ethernet (POE).  Key hardware features include SDRAM and Flash memory, Serial Ports (3), Ethernet, Audio, Touch Screen, optional SD or Compact Flash, USB Host Port (4), USB Client Port (1) and 12 TTL general purpose I/Os. These standard I/O interfaces and features are made available on standard connectors on the back side of the main CPU board. Software drivers are provided for each of these I/O functions.

We’ve included an 8 bit expansion interface for customers to add custom I/O designs enhancing the flexibility of the RE1. We can design to custom requirements or provide the board schematics and expertise to support you own designs. All of this functionality has been designed into a board slightly bigger than a playing card.

We have included some of the popular questions and answers here to help new users:

  • Question: You state that the power consumption of the RE1 is typically under 1.5 watts. Can you be more specific?
  • Answer: Yes. Please contact us and we will provide more detailed power consumption figures including the slight variation with input voltage. We can also provide figures when the RE1 is combined with our LCDs.
  • Question: What operating systems do you support on the Beta range?
  • Answer: We currently support Windows CE 6 and Linux.
  • Question: Which operating system do you recommend we use with the RE1?
  • Answer: It really depends on your experience and what you are trying to achieve. Windows CE is very good in that it has an established development environment (using Visual Studio) and the development cycle can be fast. There are many programmers who are experienced with this platform. Linux does not have some of the constraints of Windows CE in that you have incredible freedom to create your unique development environment and tools. If you have the necessary experience then Linux can be a great basis for a new product design. It is important to recognise that the memory on the RE1 is relatively small at 64MB and therefore you will need to plan for this is using a Linux operating system.
  • Question: Can you provide a custom design service if the RE1 does not match our new product specification?
  • Answer: Yes. We can subject to minimum order quantities. We have our electronics, software and mechanical engineers in house as well as all our manufacturing and test facilities.
