Blue Chip have also agreed to be a lead sponsor of this year’s UK Device Developers Conference and will be exhibiting a range of hardware solutions for embedded system developments.
Blue Chip Technology’s single board computers are used in a wide range of applications, from transport control systems to medical devices and from intelligent test equipment to digital signage controllers.
“We are looking forward to the Conference, and the chance to introduce the new version RE2,” said Barry Husbands, managing director at Blue Chip Technology. “The original RE2 has been a hugely successful design for us, it has been designed into a lot of products across a wide range of markets. The new RE2 offers a 1GHz processor, faster memory, improved Wifi and Bluetooth capability and a long production life.”
The UK Device Developers’ Conference is a one-day conference for engineers and computer scientists involved in the development of intelligent systems and devices. It is an event that explores the very latest tools and technologies available and includes a vendor exhibition, half-day technical workshops and a series of informative technical presentations.
“We are very pleased to have Blue Chip Technology exhibiting at this year’s Conference,” said Richard Blackburn, Conference Manager. “Their expertise in the field of embedded systems hardware design is most impressive and I know that they will be pleased to share their knowledge and experience with delegates.”
The 2015 UK Device Developers’ Conference will take place in Reading, Cambridge, Warrington and Uphall (Scotland) on May 12th and 14th and June 2nd and 4th respectively. The Conference, including technical presentations, is free to engineers and technical project managers, although a small charge is made for places on the half-day technical workshops.
Available with Windows, Linux and shortly Android operating systems the RE2 helps to reduce development times and project risks. Designed and manufactured at Blue Chip Technology’s facility in the UK, it is available as a board, a kit with a range of LCDs, and also integrated into packaged solutions. Blue Chip Technology can also combine the core of the RE2 together with chosen peripherals to create a custom solution.
“As the designers and manufactures of our products we are well placed to minimise changes to our products which is something our customers value as change usually costs money,” said Barry Husbands. “However we thought that the ability to extend the RE2’s life until at least 2021 and also increase performance was a strong benefit and one that has been very well received by our customers.”
Blue Chip Technology claim that with unrivalled onboard functionality, LCD, DVI, Touch, LAN, DSP, RS232, RS422/485, Camera, GPIO, Wifi, Bluetooth, USBs and wide input voltage, the RE2 is the ideal platform for new designs.
