Backplane Systems Technology is proud to introduce Neousys’ New IGT-21 Series ARM-Based Fanless In-Vehicle Communication Industrial IoT Gateway with CAN Bus.
The Neousys IGT-21 ARM-Based Box PC is a Fanless Industrial IoT (Internet of Things) Gateway for In-Vehicle Communication. Unlike a System on Module (SoM), commonly provided as a barebone component, the IGT-21 is based on the AM3352 from Texas Instruments’ Sitara AM335x family and will be shipped as a fully ready system, pre-installed with Debian. The industrial nature of the IGT-20 Series means it is in compliance with common industrial certifications like CE/FCC, and shock and vibration. Another distinction IGT-20 has over SoM is that it accepts a wider range of power inputs ranging from 8 to 25 VDC (SoM usually accepts 5 VDC).
As an In-Vehicle Communication Industrial IoT Gateway, IGT-21 has I/Os applicable to a large range of industrial grade sensors. It features one USB 2.0, one 10/100M LAN, two configurable COM ports (RS-232/422/485), and an optional CAN Bus port. In addition to the ports mentioned, there are four built-in isolated digital input channels that accept discrete signals from various sensors or buttons/switches. There are also four built-in isolated digital output channels to control actuators and indicators.
In terms of communication, the IGT-21 has a mini PCIe slot and a USIM holder allowing it to transmit acquired data and system status information in vehicle to vehicle communication (V2V) via 3G, 4G, or WiFi (mini PCIe WiFi module). There is an opening on top of the IGT-21 for users to mount the wireless module’s SMA connector. Storage-wise, the IGT-21 has dual microSDHC slots, one internal and one external. This design allows users to separate system and user data and can expedite OS deployment for mass production. As a gateway, users can take advantage of six programmable status LED indicators and two control buttons to operate the IGT-21 without using a keyboard or mouse.
