µFlashTCP embedded controller based data collection terminal
A JK microsystems customer has developed a data collection terminal based on the µFlashTCP single board computer.
Intended for time and attendance applications, they integrated the µFlashTCP single-board controller with additional electronics necessary to drive two LCD displays, two keyboards, inputs for two magnetic stripe readers, proximity card readers, additional I/O pins and a Real Time Clock. Future additions to the product include bar code reader input.
The following picture shows the µFlashTCP embedded x86 controller inside the prototype unit.
