NORCO says its EMB-4650 was employed by student participants to create robots, voice recognition systems, 3D video conferencing systems, industrial control systems and much more, according to NORCO. It's said to have featured in the winning device (below), designed to automate traditional Chinese shadow plays.
The EMB-4650 obviously packs a lot of versatility into its 6.5 x 4.5-inch EPIC form factor, since expansion interfaces include PC/104, PCI, and Mini PCI. Equipped with IDE and SATA connectors, the board also includes both Compact Flash and SD expansion slots, according to NORCO.
NORCO says the EMB-4650 uses Intel's Atom Z510P CPU and SCH US15WP companion chip, which help provide a rated operating range of 32 to 140 deg. F. A Winbond W83627-DHG-P chip provides the device with its legacy connections (PCI, Mini PCI, and PC/104), and there's 512MB of RAM, apparently soldered on.
According to NORCO, the EMB-4650's coastline has the SD slot, an RJ45 connector for gigabit Ethernet, a VGA port, two USB 2.0 ports, and a single serial port.
