Announcing TS-7680 Single Board Computer Sampling Availability



New and Upcoming TS-7680 Single Board Computer Designed for HVAC and Building Automation and Control Systems Industry

Technologic Systems Inc., an embedded systems solutions company, has announced they will be releasing limited samples of their new low power, Single Board Computer (SBC), TS-7680 for engineering and early prototypes on February 11th (information on the engineering sample program can be found below). The TS-7680 offers a great balance between industrial features, such as a 24-position rugged screw terminal connector and 3-Amp relays, and high end capabilities, such as WiFi and Bluetooth. The TS-7680 targets the HVAC and building automation and control systems industry with the industrial temperature operation, rugged enclosure with DIN mount, and flexible DC and AC power inputs. The TS-7680 is built on the 454 MHz ARM Freescale i.MX286 SoC with 128 or 256 MB RAM, 2 GB flash storage, microSD card socket, dual 10/100 Ethernet ports, and available Wireless 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth radio. Full descriptions, pictures, and resources, including manuals and schematics, for the TS-7680 can be found on the Technologic Systems’ TS-7680 product page.
