Distributed Data Acquisition – Put the SBC-Nano at the data source and reduce system errors and complexity.

Limitless Flexibility – Different functionality can be achieved by simply replacing the XMC module.

Uniquely Customizable – XMC site for IO, user-programmable FPGA for IO interfaces, triggering and timing control, USB ports.

Remote or Local Operation – Continuous data streaming up to 500 MB/s (local SSDs) or 1 Gb/s Ethernet.

Rugged – Runs from the mSATA SSD drive in a compact, rugged 150 x 75 mm footprint that is ready for embedded operation.

Two Generic Serial Ports for system extension

On-board JTAG programmer allows XMC module FPGA in-system programming directly from the Xilinx development tools.

6V – 14V DC Operation – Perfect for portable or automotive battery-operated data loggers or waveform generators.

Xilinx Cool-Runner CPLD based System voltage and temperature monitor for safe operation.
