Pathway Technologies Provides SolutionsEagle104 is a PC104 form factor based highly flexible embedded industrial PC system developed for real-time testing applications. Eagle104 is designed to work with the xPC Target™ real-time kernel from the MathWorks and it supports all xPC Target™ features. Eagle104 supports both PC104 and PC104+ interfaces. The I/O of this system is provided by add-on PC104 and/or PC104+ I/O boards. Each system is customized by installation of customer specific I/O modules. We support all PC104 and PC104+ form factor based I/O boards which are supported in the current release of xPC Target™. Eagle104 supports the network boot option in xPC Target™ thus eliminating the need to handle bulky floppy/CDROM drives. This makes the Eagle104 system ideal for mobile applications as well.


Pathway Technologies Provides Solutions Eagle104 is a cost-effective, open-architecture industrial PC system which combines performance and I/O expandability in a compact package. Eagle104 is specifically designed to provide OpenSim/xPC Target™ users with an compact, PC-based, real-time target system for rapid control prototyping and HIL simuation and test applications. Using these products, engineers can quickly develop and validate their embedded control designs in real time.

  • A compact, PC/104 form factor based, high-performance industrial PC system
  • Processors selected from Intel's embedded program to ensure long term availability
  • Provides cost-effective I/O configurations for rapid control prototyping and HIL applications
  • Low power consumption
  • Reliable operation in lab and in-vehicle (in-cabin) environments
  • Provides both AC and DC input power (for in-vehicle use) operation
  • Supports a wide variety of I/O options for typical rapid prototyping and HIL requirements, such as A/D, D/A, DIO, PWM, counters, timers, encoders, and CAN bus
  • Eagle104 enables use of xPC Target™ embedded option for host computer free system operation with xPC Target™
  • Front and rear populated I/O connectors (Automotive grade connectors available)


Eagle104 is housed in a compact, rugged, aluminum chassis.


We provide a standard set of I/O options which satisfies typical rapid prototyping requirements: analog to digital, digital to analog, digital inputs and outputs, counters, timers, encoders, pulse width modulation, and CAN bus support.

In addition to the standard I/O options noted below, Eagle104 can be customized by requesting any additional I/O options that are supported under xPC Target™. Please contact the third party with your specific IO requirements and an applications engineer will assist you in the selection of right I/O cards for the Eagle104 system based upon your application.
