In the world of increasing complexity and integration, experiments often stretch over multiple beamlines or several facilities. Users may come with their own sample environments and detectors. It is always a challenge to integrate user end-station equipment into the hosting facility controls. Recognizing this trend, NSLS2 has developed babyIOC* Control System in Box, portable small-factor IOC solution. The new release comes with CentOS, EPICS, as well as areaDetector-3-5**. The selected hardware is from innovative hardware designer UDOO***, Italy. This SBC has diskless 64-bit Intel architecture, 4-core 2.56 GHz, 8 GB of RAM, x3 1 Gbit interfaces for ~$400 US. System boots and runs from microSD card. Building another system comes to copying the image to another microSD card. We believe this board with the easy downloadable image can be used at any facility and/or experimental stations including Tango systems, that would be interested benefiting from areaDetector package. Given a growing interest to areaDetector software from Tango community, babyIOC could serve as evaluation starting point.
