Embedded Gaming Platforms & Solutions

Our range of GLI compliant, embedded gaming platforms are based on our Open Mini ITX architecture, combined with powerful middleware. Our gaming solution approach is designed and engineered to significantly reduces time-to-market, development costs and substantially improve operational efficiency and reliability.

 

Gaming platforms made simple!

Introduction

Overview

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.

RC600 Reel Controller

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

Application example

This example illustrates use of a GS embedded gaming platform, RC reel controller and iSocket Gaming Device Manager Middleware.  

  • GS system include CCTalk bus of cash handling
  • Peripherals can be connected to system COM ports
  • Additional USB mapped COM ports are provided
  • Reels are controlled by an RC600 controller via USB
  • Motherboards are available supporting up to 4 displays
  • GPIO for lamps and buttons is provided by internal GC IO controller

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.
