Although there are many excellent embedded circuit boards on the market today, two, in particular, stand out for being among the most flexible and best fit for industrial, military, and medical purposes.

InHand Fury-M6

Due to the compact size of this single board computer, it is an excellent choice for both industrial and military use. In a small 2” x 2.75” footprint, the Fury M-6 boasts a touchscreen interface, onboard LCD interface, eMMC flash memory, Wi-Fi, sensor connections, Bluetooth BLE, and battery management. In addition, stacking connectors bring out other interfaces and peripherals that can be accessed with a custom daughter card.

Although small, the Fury-M6 is a powerful computer thanks to an iMX 6 dual or quad processor. Especially for applications that have limited space, yet need complex operating systems, local processing power, or high-performance graphics, the Fury M-6 is an ideal solution. This board is ideal for the more complicated Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications and for portable human-machine-interface (HMI) devices because of its incredible display and graphics features.

InHand Fury-X

The Fury-X is another embedded circuit board specifically designed for industrial, military, and medical use. This board has optimized circuitry for both low power consumption and space constraints. The board also allows for real-time communication for Internet of Things via the cloud.

The two core architectures featuring a Cortex-A9 and a Cortex-M4 allow for real-time monitoring of sensors with low power consumption and higher power processing for display functions, communications, or just crunching data.

You have a choice of 512MB, 1GB, or 2GB DDR3 RAM when choosing the Fury-X board. There is also a Matrix 2×2 keypad, dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet MAC, an onboard PHY, and eight digital GPIO lines, as well as LED drive lines, power control GPIOs, and sensor interrupts, including a light sensor, barometer, and accelerometer. Regarding security of the Fury-X, protection is provided by a Cryptographic Acceleration and Assurance Module, true random number generator, and ARM TrustZone.

The Bottom Line

The InHand Fury M-6 and the Fury-X are hard to beat when it comes to industrial, military, and medical use. Use one off the shelf or let us customize the perfect solution for you based on our Modified COTS concept that will get you to market faster and for less cost than any other design approach.
