Versalogic has announced Osprey-an extremely small, rugged, embedded computer. This next generation of the Versalogic Embedded Processing Unit (EPU) format combines processor, memory, video, and system I/O into an extremely compact full function embedded computer. The computer has a footprint just slightly larger than a credit card. Osprey (VL-EPU-3311) is available in single-, dual-, and quad-core models.

The Osprey features an industrial temperature Intel Atom E38xx processor optimized for performance and power balance. Intel's advanced Gen 7 HD graphics engine provides outstanding graphics performance and is capable of supporting two simultaneous 1080p video streams. On-board hardware acceleration is available for encode/decode of H.264, MVC, VP8, VC1/WMV9, and other standards. The graphics engine also supports DirectX 11, Open GL 4.0, full HD video playback, dual display support, and resolution up to 2560 x 1600 at 60Hz. Osprey supports a Mini DisplayPort++ output as well as a single-channel LVDS display output.

Osprey's I/O connectivity includes dual Gigabit Ethernet ports with network boot capability, one USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0 ports, I2C, eight digital I/O's, and two serial ports. A SATA 3 Gbits/s interface supports high-capacity rotating or solid-state drives. Full and half-sized Mini PCIe sockets, a microSD socket, and on-board eMMC (on some models) provide flexible solid-state drive (SSD) options. Systems can be enhanced by leveraging the Mini PCIe sockets with plug-in Wi-Fi modems, GPS receivers, MIL-STD-1553, Ethernet, Firewire, and other mini PCIe cards/modules. OEM quantity pricing starts at $709 for the single-core model with 2 Gbytes of RAM.
