PhidgetSBC

ID: 1070_0
Single board computer runing a custom Linux Distro with 64 MiB ram, 64 MiB flash, and 4 full-speed USB ports.

Discontinued

Replaced by the 1072 – PhidgetSBC2.

The PhidgetSBC is a fully functional Single Board Computer with an integrated PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8. At its most basic, it can be thought of as a Phidget that you connect using a network cable instead of directly to the USB. The PhidgetSBC also provides four USB full-speed ports that allow you to use normal USB Phidgets over its network connection. This can extend the effective range of a Phidget from USB’s maximum of 15 feet, to anywhere that your network reaches.

The PhidgetSBC exposes an easy to use interface for setting up and running custom applications on-board, written in either Java or C. This allows the PhidgetSBC to operate autonomously, without the need for a graphical interface or a remote connection at all times.

For more advanced users, the PhidgetSBC is an embedded computer that runs a custom Linux Distribution, built using Buildroot. We provide full shell access via a built-in SSH server, full GCC and development tools, the GDB debugger, and all of the standard command line tools expected on a modern Linux system. This allows for on-board development in C, and full access to the system for customizing.

An integrated PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8 allows you to connect devices to any of 8 analog inputs, 8 digital inputs and 8 digital outputs. It provides a generic, convenient way to interface your PC and PhidgetSBC with a wide variety of devices and it operates exactly the same way as an external PhidgetInterfaceKit.
