Our RE2 is a high-performance, ultra low power embedded single board computer with onboard DSP, high resolution video playback with strong communications interfaces. Despite being powered by a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 core with 800MHz C64x DSP, the power dissipation is typically only 2 to 3 watts.

The RE2 video performance is particularly impressive as it is able to drive a variety of displays including RGB (TTL/CMOS), LVDS and DVI/HDMI.

Standard and extended temperature (40°C to +85°C) versions are available.

How can I interact with the GPIOs? Do you have some example code?

We provide the code for a GPIO sample application in our ‘Windows CE6 & EC7 for RE2 User Guide’ document. This is available above, under the Downloads section, or via this direct link.

How can I set up the video timings to match my LCD?

For Windows CE/EC our RE2 has a unique utility which you can easily set up the video timings to match your chosen LCD. The utility allows you to set the resolution, dot clock speed, front, back porches, vertical and horizontal sync polarities and widths. To our knowledge there is not a better (nor easier) way to set up the video on a single board computer.

How can I set up a custom splash screen for my display?

For Windows CE/EC our RE2 has a unique utility which you can easily set up your chosen splash screen in just a couple of clicks of your mouse. It will even scale most images to match your LCD resolution.

Can the RE operate at processor speeds other than 1GHz?

Yes, we provide a utility (for Windows CE/EC) that enables you to run the RE2 processor speed at lower speeds should you wish or let it select the most appropriate processor clock speed based on the demand. For other operating systems we can provide details how to vary the processor speed.

Is the RE2 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth approved to R&TTE?

Yes. We have had the RE2 and recommended antenna tested to R&TTE. Provided that you follow our recommendations then your product should benefit from our testing.

Can you supply RE2s with parts removed if we do not need them (e.g. Camera, Wi-Fi, etc)

Yes. We can. Provided that you place an order for at least 100 units then we will set up our Surface Mount Machines to place the components to your requirements. Also we will need to check that the components that you do not want to be fitted do not adversely affect our test rigs.

What operating systems do you support on the RE2?

We currently support Windows CE 6.0 R3, Windows EC7, Ubuntu Linux and we also have beta versions of Android in progress.

Is there an extended temperature version of the RE2 available?

Yes there is. It has an operating temperature specification of -40 to +85 degrees centigrade. The standard temperature range is 0 to 70 degrees centigrade.
