For only $83 per unit, the Flashlite 186 single board computer offers an exceptionally cost-effective embedded solution for many data acquisition, communications and industrial control applications.
Built around a 33MHz 186 compatible processor, the Flashlite 186 single board controller offers 44 configurable digital I/O lines, 512K DRAM and 512K Flash memory, two serial ports and a console/debug serial port. Additional features include an onboard 7-34V DC voltage regulator, two 16-bit timers, a watchdog timer, I/O expansion port, as well as a socket to expand non-volatile memory using M-Systems DiskOnChip.
Like all members of the JK microsystems family of embedded DOS computers, the preloaded, royalty-free operating system and flash file system provide a fast, yet comfortable environment for software development. By connecting the Console/Debug serial port to a PC and running a telecommunications program, engineers can immediately upload and execute programs on the Flashlite 186 SBC while having both hardware serial ports available for the users application.
The Flashlite 186 embedded x86 controller also supports LCDs, keypads and the addition of 12-bit A/D channels, relay outputs, optically isolated inputs, high current drivers or a battery-backed clock calendar (using part #20-0074) using JK microsystems' peripherals.
Low cost DOS controller with 44 digital I/O, 2 serial ports, console debug port, 5V or 7-34V DC power.
