TS-SOCKET Baseboard with 10" LCD Touch Panel Display


  • TS-SOCKET Baseboard
    (requires TS-SOCKET Macrocontroller)
  • SD card socket for additional Flash
  • TS-4900: Linux, Android, QNX, Windows
  • High brightness LCD (320 nits)
  • 800x600 TFT 10-inch LCD

The TS-TPC-8950 is a TS-SOCKET baseboard comprised of a 10" TFT LCD and TS-8950 baseboard, ready to be paired with a TS-SOCKET macrocontroller (sold separately). It is an ideal solution for applications requiring a touch screen human machine interface (HMI), such as industrial automation, home automation, self-service machines, and point-of-sale terminals. This product offers an excellent value with a full range of features and industry standard connectors and a fanless, low power, high performance modular design.


The TS-TPC-8950 is a low-cost, industrial-grade TS-SOCKET baseboard with WVGA touchscreen, headphone jack, speaker, and black bezel. Reliability is enhanced through entirely solid-state operation with no moving parts and requires no fans or heat-sinks. The rugged aluminum support elegantly frames the 10-inch TFT LCD, making it an ideal solution for mounting on a wall or cabinet. The computer unit is mounted to the back of the panel, providing access to a wide variety of connectors including both Gigabit and 10/100BASE-T Ethernet ports, three full-speed USB host ports via standard USB connectors, DIO, and serial ports. The unit runs Yocto Linux out of the box and is suitable for a wide range of HMI-type and simple GUI applications.

The TS-TPC-8950 is an upgrade of the TS-TPC-8900, adding the following new features and options:

  • Primary ethernet port is now Gigabit
  • Added 3rd USB Host port
  • Added 3rd RS-232 port
  • Added A/D to monitor all power rails
  • Changed POE from 12 watts to 24 watts (POE Plus)
  • Console is now USB device port
  • Options
    • mSATA SSD support
    • Mini-PCIe cell modem interface

The TS-8950 Engine

The TS-8950 baseboard, mated with one of two multi-purpose macrocontrollers running an 800MHz ARM family CPU, powers the TS-TPC-8950 Touch Panel Computer. It allows development of multi-function embedded applications through its multiple peripheral interfaces, which include on-board RAM, NAND flash, both Gigabit and 10/100 Ethernet ports, three USB 2.0 host ports, serial ports, SD card socket, digital I/O lines, real time clock, audio codec and speaker, video framebuffer, touchscreen, and LCD video interfaces.

  • I2C Bus and SPI Bus
  • 8 Digital Outputs (0-3.3V)
  • 8 Digital Inputs (0-5V)

The TS-8950 engine is extremely rugged and reliable. Temperature operation is fanless and the range is the industrial standard at lower CPU speeds. The LCD is rated for storage temperature range of -30 ° to +80 °C. The operating range is -20 °C to +70 °C. The unit may be powered by a standard DC supply with a flexible input range from 5V DC to 30V DC or via Power over Ethernet (PoE) on Ethernet port #1. The power supplies for both the LCD and the LCD back-light are controlled via software.
