Military grade computer

4 March 2009 Computer/Embedded Technology

ADLINK has announced the availability of the MilSystem 800 Extreme Rugged COTS military computer. The computer leverages the proven design of the RuffSystem 800 and uses MIL-STD-D38999 connectors instead of PC-style connectors to maximise the reliability of connections between the computer system and peripherals for extreme environmental conditions.

MilSystem 800 consists of the Ampro LittleBoard 800 single board computer (SBC) in a MIL-STD-810 tested RuffSystem enclosure. The system supports up to a 1,4 GHz Pentium M CPU and provides conductive cooling, requiring no fans or holes for ventilation. It is also dust- and splash-proof.

The computer comes in an 20 x 25 x 7,5 cm conductive cooled enclosure that has been tested to MIL-STD-810 for shock and vibration, and tested over a wide temperature range of -40°C to +75°C. The low height allows installation under seats and in other locations where cube-shaped and rack-mount systems cannot fit. Built-in I/O includes Gigabit Ethernet, 10/100 Ethernet, four USB 2.0 ports, four serial ports, video, audio and PS/2 keyboard-mouse, all on two MIL-STD-D38999 style 55-pin connectors. A third connector is available for an additional 55 I/O signals.

MilSystem 800 supports up to 1 GB of DDR memory and can be configured with any combination of up to 32 GB of rugged solid-state drive, up to 16 GB of rugged-grade CompactFlash memory card, or an extreme environment hard drive. MilSystem is offered with Embedded Linux, Microsoft Windows XP Embedded, and Microsoft Windows CE operating systems.
