Our range of 6U CompactPCI ® products provides the user with a choice of high performance, highly integrated slot controllers and peripheral controllers. These boards use Intel® processor platforms for ease of programming and widespread availability over long life-cycles.
Example: PP F84/m3d is a single slot, air-cooled CompactPCI® board and is available for customers who need better performance and security as well as those looking to extend the life of existing deployments without a backplane change. PP F84/m3d is based on a 4-core Intel® Core™ i3-9100HL processor with 16 Gbytes soldered DDR4 ECC DRAM. It has two front Gigabit Ethernet ports for enhanced connectivity and two XMC/PMC module slots to maximize local I/O expansion. With security being a pivotal part of recent applications, PP F84/m3d has a Trusted Platform Module (TPM 2.0) and supports Intel Boot Guard as standard. It also comes with an array of peripheral interfaces and with the option of a high bandwidth direct attached storage module up to 1TB capacity.
Example: The FP 110/019 is an entry-level 24-port 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet Switched Fabric Board for use in CompactPCI® PICMG® 2.16 and VITA 31.1 Packet Switched Backplane environments. It supports up to nineteen node boards, a fabric to fabric link and for user connections, up to four front panel Ethernet interfaces.
It offers high speed, full line rate Layer 2 switching fabric on all Ethernet ports. Quality of Service (QoS) operation is supported with four priority queues and a variety of traffic classes for time-critical and multimedia traffic. System monitoring is provided by the PICMG 2.9 compliant IPMI subsystem, supporting the IPMB0 serial management bus. It is an excellent choice for cost sensitive applications. Typical applications include networking equipment, voice over IP (VoIP) telephony systems and blade-based servers. Options to operate in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +85°C are available. Ruggedised conduction-cooled versions are available and ruggedised air-cooled versions are planned.
Unitronix offer a range of IO cards, that cover anologue, digital, serial, single and muli-function.
Example: NAI offers a variety of rugged embedded Multifunction I/O Cards in 3U & 6U versions. When combined with their smart function modules they have the ability to meet a wide range of complex and time-critical sense and response requirements for I/O-intensive, mission-critical applications. Specifically designed for the most demanding defence, commercial aerospace and industrial applications, these boards are built with a modular I/O approach that accelerates deployment of COTS-based, high-density, SWaP-optimised solutions.
NAI designs and manufactures a full line of Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS), Modified COTS and Custom Power Supplies. All comply with environmental standards designed for harsh environments, including MIL-STD-810G and MIL-STD-901. NAI’s rugged power supplies also have integrated EMI filters per MIL-STD-461 standards.
Specifically designed for rugged defence, industrial, and commercial applications operating in extreme conditions, these high-density power supplies provide significant cost benefits and deliver COTS solutions that accelerate deployment of SWaP-optimised systems in air, land and sea systems.
We offer storage options from Concurrent Technologies and Red Rock.
Example The TP MS1/xxx 3U CompactPCI® Mass Storage Module supports up to four 2.5 inch SATA300 mass storage drives, two on the controller board, and two additional drives on an expansion board or elsewhere in the chassis. The controller board can support various hardware RAID functions for the two additional SATA300 storage drives. Additionally there is support for a CompactFlash™ drive. The controller board is designed to work with a range of CompactPCI systems, including 32/64-bit, 33/66MHz backplanes using 3.3V or 5V signaling.
It is capable of operating in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +85°C where it is suitable for a range of applications within the defence, industrial control, telecomms, telemetry, scientific and aerospace markets. Ruggedised air-cooled versions are planned. In harsh environments solid-state Flash drives or ruggedised rotating drives are required.
