The EPICS brick (EBRICK) is designed to be a low cost solution for an IOC with soft real-time requirements.
The next generation EBRICK, referred to as EBRICK-II, aligns as close as possible with suggestions made by the review committee (ICMS:APS_1239772) as well as replaces the Athena from Diamond Systems since it is now at end of life (announced 2008.01.23). The EBRICK-II is based on the Poseidon Single Board Computer (SBC) from Diamond Systems. Below lists its feature set:
The previous implementation was based on the PC104 Athena Single Board Computer from Diamond Systems Corporation. Although it is at end of life, support is still currently provided by BCDA. Below list its feature set.
These configurations provide a cost effective solution with sufficient processing power and functionality for soft IOC real-time requirements.
