Eagle SBCs and carrier boards for ARM COMs

A family of compact, rugged ARM single-board computers and carrier boards has been unveiled by Diamond Systems. The Eagle/Eaglet family is designed to work with the Toradex Apalis family of ARM computer-on-modules (COMs).

The product line is composed of two models: the full-size, full-featured Eagle and its smaller sized, low-cost Eaglet. A fully configured off the shelf solution may be purchased, including a select ARM module and heat sink installed. The baseboard and ARM module may be purchased separately for greater configuration flexibility and lower unit cost. Development Kits – including the fully configured SBC, pre-configured Linux OS on a microSD card, and a full cable kit – are available in the UK through Diamond Point International.

The Eagle/Eaglet family provides a scalable platform for embedded computing applications with interchangeable processors similar to the COM Express concept. All COMs in the Apalis Family are pin-compatible to ensure seamless platform upgrades.

Key highlights of the Eagle/Eaglet family are said to be long product lifetime, configuration flexibility, and a wide range of I/O.

According to the company, customers can extend Eagle’s lifecycle by upgrading to a new Apalis module and installing new driver software. Currently available models are said to offer product lifetimes extending through to 2028.
