WIXOM, Mich. –WIXOM, Mich. Acromag in Wixom, Mich., is introducing the ARCX1100 rugged small form factor (SFF) rugged computer for defense, industrial, and mobile applications in test and measurement, data acquisition, communication, avionics, simulation, and signal processing.
The ARCX1100 is optimized for size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) with a COM Express Type 10 CPU and four slots for Acromag’s plug-in AcroPack I/O modules. It offers modular I/O for signal processing, communication, and control functions.
The fanless ARCX1100 comes with an integrated removable solid-state drive bay. It measures 7.6 by 7.6 by 3.25 inches, weighs 4.55 pounds, and operates in temperatures from -40 to 71 degrees Celsius.
The embedded computer has the E3950 Intel Atom processor and four AcroPack I/O modules installed. Peripherals include two RJ45 gigabit Ethernet, two USB 3.0, two RS232, mini DisplayPort, and audio ports, plus M.2 and SATA data storage connectors.
Four 68-pin VHDCI connectors route field I/O to the AcroPack modules without any loose internal cables to interface a mix of analog, digital, serial, FPGA, avionics, and other I/O signals.
The Atom processor-based rugged design is engineered to withstand 50g shock and 5g vibration. More than 25 AcroPack modules are available to perform A/D and D/A conversion, discrete I/O, RS232/485, MIL-STD-1553, CAN bus, Gigabit Ethernet, and other functions.
The computer supports third-party Mini-PCI Express (mPCIe) modules for use in the AcroPack slots. Power comes from a 10-to-36-volt DC power supply. A water-resistant connector cover also is available to seal and secure the cabling.
