Based on a high integration system-on-a-chip (SOC) RISC core processor, the RE1 combines computing performance, I/O flexibility with an incredibly low power budget.
Board power dissipation starts at just 1.5 watts for the 333MHz CPU and 2 watts at 500MHz making the RE1 an ideal candidate for operation via battery or Power Over Ethernet (POE). Key hardware features include SDRAM and Flash memory, serial ports (3), Ethernet, audio, touchscreen controller, optional SD or Compact Flash, USB Host Port (4), USB Client Port (1) and 12 TTL general purpose I/Os. These 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 for the supported operating systems.
We’ve included an 8 bit expansion interface for customers wanting to add custom I/O designs thereby enhancing the flexibility of the RE1 even further. Alternatively, we can design to your custom requirements or provide support for your own designs. All of this functionality has been designed into a board slightly bigger than a playing card.
