Computing platform provides I/O design configurability
Elma Electronic Inc. (Fremont, CA) introduced the S50J Computing Platform, a rugged field-deployable system with abundant configurable I/O for design versatility. According to the company, virtually any I/O scheme can be supported using tailored I/O panels, and the S50J also features expandable aluminum sidewalls for easy sizing. The fanless system platform is appropriate for applications where system reliability is paramount and environmental conditions can be extreme. Specific uses include signal processing; hyperspectral imaging, tactical command and control as well as surveillance and reconnaissance. Using application-specific I/O expansion cards, the S50J can easily accommodate video compression and frame grabbers, ARINC and 1553 cards, WiFi, CANBus, data storage, or FPGA and GPGPU processing. This facilitates easier system configuration to cost-effectively support program evolution, while mitigating design risks. The EPIC-based embedded board in the S50J features a high performance, yet low heat generating, Intel Core i7 processor with an Intel QM57 Express Chipset. The full system incorporates 10 gigabit Ethernet ports, up to six USB 2.0 and four SATA ports and eight independent serial ports. Support is available for both Linux and Windows. Features include:
- Multiple I/O configurations via expansion modules.
- High performance Intel Core i7 processor with Intel QM57 Express Chipset.
- Rugged, IP65-rated enclosure with EMC shielding.
