The XE1 single board computer offers high performance, low power and long life in a small form factor.
Capable of running Windows 10 IoT Enterprise and other desktop versions of Windows, the XE1 is the ideal choice for customers wanting to run their existing applications with little fuss.
When integrated into our Beta range of modular touchscreen platforms, the XE1 provides a modern alternative to traditional panel PC solutions.
The TM range of computer on modules was designed to deliver ultra small and low cost modules that can be used in space and power limited applications. Born in the era of the Raspberry Pi and other low cost boards the TM range manages to provide not only a true embedded, long life platform at a cost that rivals consumer but also a range of supported operating systems and free in-house technical support.
NXP iMX6 ARM Cortex A9 single-core processor
ARM NEON coprocessor
1GB of Low Power DDR3 memory
MicroSD or eMMC storage devices
Wi-Fi & Bluetooth optional
Up to 60 GPIO lines with selectable 1.8 or 3.3 voltage levels
Extended operating temperature range
Android and Ubuntu Linux LTS operating systems supported
Blue Chip Technology have an in-house team of dedicated engineers with a wealth of expertise and experience in designing boards for a variety of applications and industries. We excel in compact PCB designs that allow you to incorporate the necessary features into your product.
Using our TM1 it is the ideal module for an Internet of Things (IoT) device. The TM1+6 can be used where Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and/or Ethernet is required. Together with three asynchronous RS232/422/485 ports, the TM1+6 is an extremely versatile host board which can support a wide range of applications.
The TM1+6 is also used in our Beta range of embedded touch display modules by combining it with our LCD, touchscreen, mechanicals, cables and Android or Linux operating systems.
The RE3 is the latest addition to Blue Chip Technology’s highly successful RE range of all in one ultra compact computers.
Designed and manufactured at Blue Chip Technology’s facility in the heart of the UK the RE3 sets new standards for performance and integration with dual and quad-core processor options supported by class leading graphics engines to drive two independent displays.
If your product requires a highly integrated computer for its heart with the best CPU performance, amazing video, CAN, Camera (without additional boards!) and 2G/3G modem support, then the RE3 is the answer.
Our TM1+7 SBC is makes a low cost, readily available, long life smart phone platform available for you to design your product around.
We have designed, tested and approved the platform to make integration into your product as easy and risk free as possible. With a mix of high speed digital and RF interfaces occupying a very small space the TM1+7 presents Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G GSM, GPS, CAN, I2C, GPIO, Accelerometer, Light Sensor, touchscreen Controller, LCD interfaces, two RS232 and one RS422/485 together with a powerful ARM Cortex A9 1GHz processor. Getting this range of electronics to work together reliably needs an extensive operating system that has been tested and proven to work across a range of use cases. The TM1+7 has two operating systems, Android and Linux.
If you are looking for a touchscreen solution then check out our Beta C series of modular touchscreen platforms where we have integrated the TM1+7 with our LCD, touchscreen and mechanicals.
We have experience developing BIOS, bootloaders (such as U-Boot and RedBoot), firmware, drivers, operating systems and applications for a variety of systems and connections, including:
x86 (PC), ARM and MIPS-based processors and microcontrollers
Serial Communications, such as:
USB, CAN, SPI, RS232, RS422, RS485, I2C, ProfiBus, Ethernet, 1 wire, etc
RF Communications, such as:
2G, 3G, 4G, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Custom, etc
Storage, such as:
DDR3, NAND Flash, eMMC, SATA, PATA, Compact Flash, SD, E2PROM, etc
FPGAs, PLDs, etc
and many, many more…
We have more specialised expertise in low-level operating systems and device drivers, as well as Linux for embedded applications.
If your embedded system requires a custom enclosure, you may anticipate having to approach an industrial design house and commission the enclosure design as a separate project. This adds cost and can increase the risks as you may face communication difficulties and hold-ups between suppliers.
With Blue Chip Technology’s in-house mechanical design engineering capabilities, you have the option of keeping all aspects of your project with just the one partner. With over 30 years of mechanical design experience and the advantage of being co-located with the electronics design and manufacturing teams, our mechanical design engineers are best suited to take care of your enclosure design.
We use the Creo Parametric 3D CAD system (formerly Pro Engineer) which can seamlessly integrate with CAD models authored in other systems, so if you already have an existing design or concept we can build a solution from that.
