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

Fountain Hills, AZ February 11, 2015 – 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.
