RE2 embedded computer

Share this on social media:

Blue Chip Technology has released the RE2 board optimised for graphics and computationally intensive tasks, such as high-definition multimedia, image and voice processing, and data compression/decompression. The board's small size and very low power demand also equip it for handheld and mobile applications.

The embedded computer has an OMAP 3 processing core, which also integrates a C64x up to 520MHz DSP, providing an excellent performance per watt and compact design.

Features include 256MB LPDDR SDRAM and 512MB NAND Flash, both soldered on board, plus an optional NAND Flash μSD card. Video output is available through a 24-bit RGB TTL connector or a DVI port, and a 4-wire touch screen controller and audio codec interface are also provided. Communications capability comprises a 10/100 Ethernet port, quad USB 2.0 host ports, one USB 2.0 device port, dual RS-232 and a single RS-485 port. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a Camera Interface are also provided. The board supports Windows CE 6.0, and by special request, Linux, QNX and VxWorks.
