Development Kits for TS-X86 Embedded Systems

Starting at $Call Us

Highlights

  • TS-X86 SBC is not included
  • DOS or Linux out-of-the-box
  • CF card with OS of choice
  • USB-CF adapter for host computer
  • Digital documentation/manuals

Our Development Kits for TS-X86 Single Board Computers include all equipment needed to boot into the operating system of choice and get started with user application development. Single Board Computer sold separately.

Hardware

Using a Development Kit along with one of our Single Board Computers is the easiest path to begin embedded systems development. KIT-X86 includes the following items:

  • 1GB Compact Flash with optional pre-installed tools*
    • DOS OS Flash utilities, documents, example code
    • OR Linux with TS-Linux 3 file system
  • Sandisk USB-Compact Flash adapter for host computer*
  • TS-12W power converter (5000 series)
  • 5 or 18 VDC power supply  (international versions available) depending on selected system requirement
  • NULL modem cable
  • Adapter cable from 10-pin header to DB9 (1 to 3)
  • Various cables for connection to DIO, LCD, Keypad, etc.
  • Development CD with complete source, manuals, example code, etc.

Note: CF and CF adapter not included in TS-3100, TS-3200 and TS-3400 Development Kits since these systems do not contain CF. Linux is also not an option for these SBC models.

Note: KIT-X86 picture shown with USB-Compact Flash adapter, power supply, TS-12W power converter, 10 pin to DB9 cable, null modem cable, 14-pin ribbon cable, 16-pin ribbon cable, documentation and CD. Single Board Computer and penguin not included.

Software

PC compatibility requires much more than just an x86 processor. It requires PC compatible memory and I/O maps as well as a PC compatible BIOS. The General Software EMBEDDED BIOS (Version 4.3) offers a high degree of compatibility with past and present BIOS standards allowing it to run off-the shelf operating systems and application software. This PC compatible BIOS boots to IDE Compact Flash or Drive A and the BIOS is shadowed in RAM for speed.

The TS-5000 computers are shipped, free of charge, with Embedded DOS ROM by General Software. They can also be shipped upon request with Linux pre-installed for a nominal fee. The Linux file system and kernel is also freely available on the web should you wish to install it yourself. Typically, the Linux OS requires a 16MB or larger Compact Flash or an M-Systems DiskOnChip.

Technologic Systems Embedded PCs are compatible with a wide variety of x86-based operating systems.  A partial list of Operating Systems currently used with our boards by customers includes:

  • TNT Embedded Toolsuite, Phar Lap Software
  • UCos II
