Fox
PC/104-Plus Single Board Computer
Overview
Highlights
The Fox is a low power embedded computer designed around
the PC/104-Plus standard. It is powered by a DMP Vortex86DX2
processor that enables the entire board to typically use less than
6.65W of power. Several I/O interfaces, multiple expansion buses,
and thermal management options provide system designers with
flexibility and low overall system cost.

soldered-on RAM
Fox was designed with no moving parts, soldered-on RAM, and
tested so it can withstand extreme temperatures, high-impact,
and vibration. This single board computer is an ideal choice for
applications that require moderate performance, low-power draw,
high quality, and long product life.
As with all VersaLogic products, the Fox is backed by a five-year
warranty, 5+ year off-the-shelf availability guarantee, and expert
US-based technical support. Product Life Extension options
support availability through the year 2025.
