Experience report from James A. Langbridge
James A. Langbridge is an R&D Engineering consultant. He has been working in embedded systems for over 10 years in the aviation, defence, industry, and telecom sectors.
His impressions: I’ve had the emtrion board for a few weeks now, and I’ve had a lot of fun with it. The SBC-SAMA5D36 is just begging to be used. The robust build, the excellent component layout, and the impressive I/O that the board offers makes it an ideal system for industrial systems.
The build is robust, and I wouldn’t hesitate a second before putting it into an industrial environment.The standard version of this board can operate in temperatures from 0 to 70°C, but an even more robust version is available, without HDMI, and able to operate at -20 to 85°C.That’s nice to have; I’ve worked on embedded systems that were to be deployed in rough terrain, one of the missions was in Alaska. This board can handle that without any problem. In fact, I don’t think I’ve worked on a project that this board couldn’t have handled.
