Display Solutions offers full technical support to system integrators embedding the new VMS-BYT modular, in-vehicle, telematics system from Avalue Technology. The feature-rich VMS-BYT is a rugged, enclosed system suitable for automotive and commercial vehicle applications, including fleet telematics, passenger infotainment, and in-vehicle surveillance.

Avalue’s energy-efficient design of the VMS-BYT is powered by an Intel Atom SoC E3845 quad-core processor and supports 204-pin DDR3L SO-DIMM system memory with up to 8GB DDR3L 1333MHz SDRAM capacity. Accommodating a wide DC power range (9~36V), the VMS-BYT offers reliable, fanless operation for industrial temperatures between -40 and +75 degC.

“The VMS-BYT supports LVDS output; our speciality is matching boards and systems to LVDS panels,” says Brendan O’Reilly, Account Manager at Display Solutions. “A system integrator looking for a particular in-vehicle display solution, whether it is touch screen or not, can utilise our services to achieve a total display system for their desired application.”

Onboard features of the VMS-BYT include a rich set of I/Os, including 1x VGA, 1x LVDS, 1x DC-out (12V/4A), 1x 8-bit GPIO, 1x Cfast, 1x 2.5-inch drive bay, 2x Line-out and Mic-in,  2x LAN, 3x USB, 2x COM and 5x antenna mountings.

An audio interface is also provided with a Realtek ALC892, supporting 5.1 channels.

The VMS-BYT is compatible with Windows 7 and 8 as well as Linux, carries the CE mark according to FCC Class B. An optional CAN module is available for SAEJ1939 or J1708 support.
