15 August 2011
Aitech announced that it will be demonstrating a number of exciting new ruggedised and compact COTS graphics boards and highly flexible computer systems for harsh, environmentally-demanding defence and aerospace applications at DSEi 2011 ExCeL London, 16-19 September, Stand S7-1010.
Rugged COTS – High Performance Video/Graphics Boards and Flexible Compact Computer Systems
Aitech is the world’s first and largest independent manufacturer of open architecture electronic boards and sub-system level products for rugged applications.
Advanced Graphics Boards
Aitech will demonstrate its new . These highly versatile embedded graphics and video boards are best-in-class, provide advanced specifications and deliver exceptionally high performance with a broad range of video I/O options. They are suitable for a wide variety of rugged avionics applications.
Both boards utilise the high performance AMD/ATI E4690 Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), which delivers multiple video outputs from its native video ports. In addition, a sophisticated FPGA sits alongside the E4690 to support a wide variety of additional video output formats and video overlay features, video input formats and signal conditioning options.
Flexible Compact Computer Systems – off the shelf from Aitech
The E190 FlexiBuild™ Compact Computer System is a fully integrated out-of-the-box computer with highly flexible configurations that can accommodate 3U cPCI or VPX cards. With a small footprint and integrated 150W power supply, the E190 combines rugged performance with completely flexible system configuration – off-the-shelf.
The A171 RCP (Rugged Compact PC) delivers all the features of a standard PC in a rugged compact enclosure. Utilising a high performance 2.0GHz Core i7 processor, up to 16GB solid-state on-board storage and a wide range of PC industry standard I/O including timing and temperature sensing, this advanced system brings the standard PC operating environment to harsh working environments.
The A175 I/O Expansion Sub-system is a compact and lightweight (<1.2kg) single board design that significantly expands an avionics computer’s I/O capabilities by adding a large variety of I/O interface options accessible via a MIL-STD-1553B link.
Delivering high performance with very low power consumption, both the A171 and A175 advanced computer products are environmentally sealed in rugged, compact and lightweight, Faraday cage enclosures. They are passive-air cooled and highly reliable, designed for use under extreme environmental conditions.
The Nighthawk RCU (Rugged Control Unit) is designed for harsh mechanical, climatic, chemical and electrical applications. This is a deeply embedded PC-based remote controller/data concentrator unit in a lightweight and compact passive air-cooled enclosure. With a complete set of standard PC I/O Interfaces, it utilises the Intel Atom N270 Processor with up to 250GB of solid-state storage.
