The XP-8s’ processing power has been boosted with a new 532MHz i.MX processor, which is more than twice as fast as the XP-8. This reportedly translates into better performance, expanded two-way driver support, and faster system file downloads. To take the capabilities of the XP-8s even further, the amount of internal non-volatile Flash memory has been upgraded to 128MB, which is four times more than its predecessor. In addition, each unit will ship with a 4GB SD Flash card to provide plenty of storage for large residential and commercial installations.

Designed for large-scale and complex projects, the XP-8s remote control processor combines a real-time/multi-tasking operating system with expandability. The XP-8s offers advanced control options, including eight two-way RS-232 ports, IR ports, built-in relays, and sense inputs. An Ethernet port provides RTiPanel support and IP control for complete whole-house or facility control of A/V, lighting systems, thermostats, multi-room audio, and more, from nearly anywhere in the world. Additionally, the processor features an astronomical clock, allowing for events or commands to take place automatically.
