Neptune introduces a new concept in small form-factor SBCs. Neptune’s CPU core consists of an ETX module mounted its bottom side, an approach that improves thermal management and increases the space for I/O functions and connections. This innovative design has enabled Neptune to integrate CPU, system I/O, industry-leading data acquisition, both 10/100Mbps and gigabit Ethernet, and a wide-input DC/DC power supply within the compact and modularly expandable EPIC form-factor.

Thanks to Neptune’s flexible architecture, you can select from a wide range of ETX-based CPUs to meet each application’s specific performance, power, and cost requirements. Available processors include AMD’s 1.65GHz G-T56N and 1.0GHz G-T40N CPUs.

In addition to its comprehensive embedded-PC system core, Neptune also optionally integrates Diamond’s industry-leading data acquisition I/O subsystem and DC/DC power supply, featuring 32 16-bit programmable analog inputs with 250KHz sample rate, 4 12-bit analog outputs, 24 digital I/O lines, 8 opto-isolated digital inputs, 8 opto-isolated digital outputs, 2 counter/timers for A/D sample rate control, event counting/timing.
