The Gecko is an efficient mid-sized SBC with an excellent balance of outstanding performance, low power consumption, and a complete set of on-board features. This compact board features a highly reliable design to support OEM applications where long-term availability is required. The Gecko is designed around the advanced AMD Geode GX 500 CPU. This highly integrated processor features fanless operation and very low power consumption (one watt!). The Geode GX 500 sets new standards for efficiency. Its advanced architecture delivers throughput equivalent to 500 MHz processors, yet it operates at less than half of the power consumption. It provides excellent performance, such as extremely fast on-board transfers (6 GB per second), fast DDR memory access, and integrated high-performance video. The Gecko is available in both standard and extended temperature versions. The Gecko complements the Geode GX 500 with a full range of on-board I/O devices, to form a complete, highly effective single board computer. Based on the EPIC form factor, the Gecko offers a compact, cost-effective solution for developers who require a mid-range platform (sized between EBX and PC/104). Like all VersaLogic products, the Gecko is designed from day one for high reliability and long-term availability. From initial application design to 5+ years of production, its quality and longevity provide a cost-effective, long-term solution. The Gecko is manufactured to the highest quality standards, and is backed with VersaLogic's excellent (award winning) support. Product customization is available in quantities as low as 100 pieces.
