Embedded Gaming Platforms & Solutions
Gaming platforms made simple!
Our range of PC/X86, embedded, gaming platforms are based on our open mini-ITX architecture, which combines e2c’s innovative gaming IO and middleware with state-of-the-art IPC grade motherboards.
With an open architecture, supporting any IPC grade motherboard, customers can take advantage of the latest X86 CPU’s and chipsets, but without waiting on custom gaming board development. In addition, building on high-volume IPC grade boards, they benefit from lower cost components, reducing system cost.
All e2c embedded, gaming platforms are controlled by our powerful iSocket Gaming Device Manager (GDM) middleware. This supports all industry standard gaming peripheral devices and protocols including e2c’s range of gaming reel controllers. GDM Pro also includes SAS 6.02.
All products are GLI-11 complaint and offer a full range of gaming features, including: SRAM, Crypto processing, intrusion monitoring and extensive IO.
Gaming Products Range
iSocket Gaming Device Manager (GDM) and GDM Pro are fully featured middleware applications which provide gaming system developers with a single coherent API for all hardware within a gaming machine. Supporting all standard gaming peripherals, GDP allows application developers to quickly port any application framework onto a machine. GDM Pro also includes SAS6.02 client which allows machines to be easily connected to any slot accounting system.
GS series embedded gaming platforms are open Mini ITX platforms which combine e2c’s innovative gaming IO controllers and middleware together with high-performance IPC motherboards from leading manufacturers. This offers customers rapid time to market for the latest X86 CPU’s and chipsets.
GC Series gaming IO controllers can be used with any third party PC platform to create a low cost gaming solution for any jurisdiction. GC controllers include are fully GLI-11 compliant, comprising extensive IO (up to 64 GPIO), battery backed SRAM and intrusion monitoring.
e2c RC series reel controllers are designed to run with Gaming Device Manager (GDM). These USB connected controllers support all industry standard reels including 48 step and 200 step configurations. Also included is real time control for GLI error detection for class III/III jurisdictions. The GDM API provides extensive control features for managing all reel movements and illumination control for both standard lamps and RGM LED elements.
Typical system implementation
This example illustrates use of a GS embedded gaming platform, RC reel controller and iSocket Gaming Device Manager Middleware.
This example illustrates how it is possible to connect best of breed devices into a solution. With all devices being supported by GDM, developers don’t need to worry about any device protocols.
Other Solution components
e2c’s i.MX6 powered Smart Connect series embedded compute modules are designed for remote monitoring of any machine comprising complex peripherals, such as gaming slot machines. Utilising iSocket middleware to remotely monitor serial traffic from devices and SAS, SC series modules can relay all critical system information back to an on-premises Enterprise server.
iSocket Enterprise Server provides robust and secure monitoring of any gaming machine network with iSocket client middleware. In addition, legacy machines can be fitted with any of e2c’s SC series smart connect modules to remotely monitor peripherals and system components.
KS series embedded Intel ATOM platforms are suitable for several vertical gaming applications such as betting. This platform offers a very competitive Quad core ATOM grade computing platform together with a fully featured gaming controller. KS1000 includes full intrusion monitoring and 1MB battery backed SRAM so is suitable for class II and other markets.
