The EPC-A9-097-C (PN CS10768F097E) is a high-quality industrial embedded computer, that features a 9.7-inch LCD with capacitive touchscreen, a quad-core Cortex-A9 processor with 2GB DDR3 RAM and 8GB eMMC Flash, an onboard WiFi and Bluetooth, one 4G antenna, 1Gb Ethernet, 3 USB 2.0 ports, 2 CAN ports, 2 RS232, 3 RS485 ports, 1 HDMI port for a secondary monitor, a SATA-II channel for extra storage, as well as a 3.5mm audio connector.

Hardware description

The EPC-A9-097-C has several expansion connectors on the back side – 2 USB 2.0 connectors, 1 LAN connector, 2 CAN connectors, 3 RS485 connectors, and 2 RS232 connectors. It also features a WiFi and Bluetooth antenna, an HDMI connector, and a 3.5mm audio connector.

The WiFi/Bluetooth module is based on the Realtek RTL8723BS an 802.11bgn 2.4G single-chip that integrates Wireless LAN (WLAN) and an SDIO interface controller with integrated Bluetooth 2.1/3.0/4.0 controller. It combines a WLAN MAC, a 1T1R capable WLAN baseband, and WLAN RF in a single chip.

Please note that a 4G/LTE module can be added. Contact us for more information. The product also features a SIM card slot.

The CAN, RS485, RS232 connector is a 16 Pin 3.81mm screw terminal connector (as you can see from the image).

Since this display has 5 UART channels, they can be configured as RS232 or RS485. One UART channel is used by Bluetooth – the default setting is 2 * RS232 + 2 * RS485 + Bluetooth. Please contact us if you require a different configuration.

The RS232 and the RS485 port speed is up to 115200 Baud.

The EPC-A9-097-C has one channel 1Gb Ethernet port and one HDMI port which can be configured by software. The maximum resolution supported on the external HDMI monitor is 1920×1080 at 60Hz.

When it comes to audio capabilities, the EPC-A9-097-C product has one 3.5mm Output/input connector and a 2W internal speaker.

The EPC-A9-097-C features a 9.7’’ display with a 1024×768 pixel resolution and a 10-point capacitive touch screen. 10-point capacitive touchscreens offer stable and accurate control over the device, as well as great image clarity.

The screen offers a very high brightness of 350 nits. Regarding the viewing angle, the screen offers various angles: top, bottom, left, and right view.

If your application requires a secondary display the HDMI port on the back of the panel allows the device to work in a double monitor configuration up to 1920×1080 pixel resolution at a 60Hz refresh rate.

Performances and reliability

This System-on-Module makes it possible to integrate a whole computer into a device, significantly simplifying the customization of the device. This is why we are able to offer fast turnaround customization of all our products.

At the core of each Chipsee product lies a System-on-Module. This means all the products share the same core. It makes your application easily upgradable – without needing to rewrite a single line of code your application is upgraded, thanks to the same System-on-Module.

This product features the .iMX 6 series of application processors, the CS-SOM-iMX6Q.

The .iMX6Q Quad processor represents the latest achievement in integrated multimedia applications processors. They feature advanced implementation of the quad Arm® Cortex®-A9 core, which operates at speeds up to 1.2 GHz. They include 2D and 3D graphics processors, 1080p video processing, and integrated power management. Each processor provides a 64-bit DDR3/DDR3L/LPDDR2 memory interface and a number of other interfaces for connecting peripherals, such as WLAN, Bluetooth®, GPS, hard drive, displays, and camera sensors.

Contact us for further details if you want to buy the CS-SOM-iMX6Q separately.
