GS Series Gaming Platforms
GS Series Gaming Platforms
Gaming platforms made simple!
e2c provide a complete range of PC/X86 gaming platforms based on our open mini-ITX architecture, which combines e2c’s innovative gaming IO and middleware, with state-of-the-art IPC grade motherboards.
By offering an open architecture, supporting any IPC grade motherboard, customers can take advantage of the very latest X86 CPU’s and chipsets without having to wait on custom gaming boards to be developed. In addition, building on high-volume IPC grade boards, it’s possible to take advantage of lower cost components, thus reducing system cost.
All e2c gaming platforms are controlled by our powerful iSocket Gaming Device Manager (GDM) middleware, supporting all standard gaming peripherals and protocols, including e2c’s range of gaming reel controllers. Gaming Device Manager (GDM) integrates support for all industry standard peripheral devices. GDM Pro also includes SAS 6.02.
All products are GLI-11 complaint and offer a full range of gaming features, including: battery-backed SRAM, intrusion monitoring, extensive GPIO, serial ports and SHA crypto security.
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.
GS1000 Gaming platform provides machine manufactures with an open PC platform which can be configured to suit price/performance requirements across many jurisdictions. GS1000 is offered with a range of value IPC motherboards, ranging from Intel Atom grade to i3/i5. GS1000 is targeted at entry level gaming solutions which do not require fast SRAM data storage.
GS2000 provides all the functions of the GS1000 platform with the added availability of additional PCIe serial ports and high-speed battery backed SRAM. GS2000 is suitable for all gaming jurisdictions and is available with a range of performance motherboards based on Intel and AMD chipsets. GS200 is typically configured with dual or 3 screens (Intel Skylake Q170 or AMD Merlin Falcon)
GS3000 provides all the features of GS2000 with higher speed and capacity SRAM. GS3000 supports up to 16MB battery backed SRAM in 2 banks with 32 bit addressing. In addition, GS3000 supports CAN2.0B interface bus. The on-board digital amplifier is also rated at 15W/channel. GS3000 is typically configured with 3 or 4 screens (Intel Skylake Q170 or AMD Merlin Falcon/Bald Eagle)
Typical system implementation
This example illustrates use of a GS2000 gaming system, 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.
Other Gaming Solutions
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 and Enterprise 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.
