Description

The SBC-A510 is a mini-ATX compliant, single board computer. It is implemented with a CM-A510 module providing most of the functions, and a SB-A510 carrier board providing standard connectors and additional peripherals. The rich feature set of the SBC-A510 is customizable according to the price / performance targets of the user's application.

The SBC-A510 features expansion connectors, that open it to a wide range of standard peripheral cards. Wide input range switched power supply is compatible with requirements for telecom and automotive applications.

  • SB-A510 does not have assembly options. The "CM Option" column specifies the P/N code of CM-A510 required to have the particular feature.
  • "+" means that the feature is always available, regardless of P/N code.
