Small-form-factor rugged computer for military embedded systems introduced by X-ES

MIDDLETON, Wis., 6 Nov. 2012. Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) in Middleton, Wis., is introducing the XPand6104 small-form-factor embedded computing system with a 3rd generation Intel Core i7 microprocessor on a COM Express module for rugged deployed military small-form-factor systems.

The rugged computer for military embedded systems uses commercial connectors so it can act as an XPedite7450 COM Express development platform, or a demonstration platform for applications requiring a high-performance Intel Core i7 processor.

In a convection-cooled small-form-factor enclosure, the XPand6104 is for size, weight, and power (SWaP)-constrained applications. The unit measures 2.10 inches high by 4.88 inches wide by 7.70 long, and weighs less than four pounds.

It includes an XPedite7450 Intel Core i7 ruggedized COM Express module and an optional 1.8-inch solid-state drive. The front panel features an RJ-45 Ethernet connector to a 10/100/1000 BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet port, a USB 2.0 connector to a USB 2.0 port, an eSATA connector to a SATA 3-gigabit-per-second port, two micro-DB-9 connectors to RS-232 serial ports, a DisplayPort connector for graphics, reset and power switches, and status LEDs.

It includes an integrated MIL-STD-704 28-volt DC input voltage power supply with MIL-STD-461 EMI filtering and an external AC/DC 110-volt AC input voltage power supply for development.
