Linux Board Computer

The open platform for advanced telematics applications

The Linux Board Computer, which has been specifically designed for automotive telematics applications, is equipped with a wide range of hardware interfaces. This includes CAN bus, 1-wire, RS232 and Ethernet as well as multiple inputs and outputs. The device can be extended with additional wireless interfaces such as Bluetooth or WiFi by using the device's internal or external USB connectors. In this way, the LBC can also be deployed as a vehicle router.

The open Linux operating system provides you with the flexibility required to deploy your own applications, which can also include the communications with the backend system, on a hardware platform which has been approved for vehicular usage.

The LBC targets System Integrators requiring a highest degree of extensibility in order to address widely varying end-user requirements.
