SBC8600B single board computer
The SBC8600B is an excellent high-performance single board computer based on Texas Instruments’ 1GHz Sitara AM3358 ARM Cortex-A8 processor. It is driven by a tiny core board Mini8600B which has integrated AM3358 processor, DDR3, Nand Flash and brought out most of the features and signals of the AM3358 CPU through expansion pins. The core board is in combination with a carrier board to extend and provide more features through headers and connectors.
The SBC8600B board comes with a rich set of communication peripherals including six serial ports (2*RS232, 3*TTL, 1*RS485), two 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet ports, two USB Host, USB OTG and CAN interfaces, providing an ideal solution for applications requiring remote control and monitoring or mass connectivity. The board also has LCD and touch screen interface, Audio input and output ports, RTC, Buzzer and more other interfaces. Embest offers 4.3 inch and 7 inch LCD panels for user options which contain a 4-wire resistive touch screen as well.
The SBC8600B board is a ready-to-run solution which is provided with Linux 3.2.0, Android 2.3 and WinCE 7 BSP. One DVD is delivered along with the goods which includes the software driver source code and relative documents to help customer better understand this board and start their reference design.
Additionally, Embest offers various optional modules for the SBC8600B which greatly enhanced the functions of this board. Target applications of the SBC8600B board include Industrial Automation, Building Automation, Home control, Consumer Electronics, Security and Instrumentation.

The SBC8600B Single Board Computer is based on TI’s AM3358 ARM Cortex-A8 processor and designed with a tiny processor card Mini8600B mounted directly onto an expansion board. The SBC8600B is characterized as follows:
Expansion Interfaces and Signals Routed to Pins
- Two USB 2.0 OTG Ports With Integrated PHY, High-Speed
Expansion Board of SBC8600B
Data Transfer Interfaces
1 x 3 line Debug serial port, RS232 voltage (UART0 brings out by DB9 connector)
2 x USB2.0 Host ports with Integrated PHY (High-speed, 480Mbps, USB-A Type)
Input Interfaces and Other Facilities
The board takes full features of TI’s AM3358 microprocessor and has exposed many hardware peripherals through connectors or headers. Embest has also designed various function modules to further enhance the performance of SBC8600B board including VGA, Camera, WiFi and 3G (with CDMA2000 or WCDMA standard) modules, which are flexible for user selections to meet their own needs. More other modules are under development and will be released continuously.
Note: The TF card slot is on the rear of the board.
