CUPID core

Single-Board-Computer with 532 MHz CPU, CAN and RS-485

Operating Systems
Starter Kits
CUPID core is an ARM11 based single-board-computer, where all components are placed on one PCB. Our core versions are designed for headless applications, where no display is needed.

The fanless SBC is also available with display as CUPID open frame or in a complete housing as CUPID boxed. The 532 MHz NXP i.MX35 ARM1136 CPU offers enough power for sophisticated applications. CUPID will be shipped either with Windows CE 6.0 R3 or Embedded Linux.

Starter Kits with preinstalled ROM images for all available operating systems as well as optimized driver and SDK/BSP packages simplify the project entry.
