Embedded computer with multiple WAN wireless routing
19 September 2012, Computer/Embedded Technology

Moxa’s UC-8481 embedded computer comes with two RS-232/422/485 serial ports, two Ethernet ports, four digital input channels, four digital output channels, a CompactFlash socket and two USB 2.0 ports.

The computer uses the Intel XScale IXP435 533 MHz RISC CPU. This powerful computing engine supports several useful communication functions, but will not generate too much heat. The built-in 32 MB NOR Flash ROM and 512 MB SDRAM provide enough memory to run application software directly on the computer, and the 512 MB NAND Flash can be used to provide additional data storage.

Most notably, the UC-8481 series comes with seven connectors that allow users to connect various wireless and GPS modules, making it particularly well suited for rolling stock and moving vehicles. With an embedded Linux operating system pre-installed, the system provides an open software platform for custom-authored software.

Software written on desktop PCs can be easily ported to the UC-8481 via a common compiler, without any modification of code. This makes it an optimal solution for industrial applications, allowing ample customisation with minimal cost and effort.

The UC-8481 also comes in a wide-temperature model designed to operate reliably in extremes from -25°C to 70°C.
