ISMANING, Germany – Kontron AG in Ismaning, Germany, is introducing the COBALT S1901 integrated mission computer for harsh-environment aerospace and defense applications.
The COBALT S1901 offers high-performance processing and I/O in a small rugged package. It measures 13 by 7 by 4 inches, and operates in temperatures from -40 to 71 degrees Celsius.
The rugged computer offers an expandable carrier card for rugged versions of Kontron's COM Express Type 6 or 7 modules, an on-board Ethernet switch supporting 1G, 2.5G and 10G ports, two mini-PCI Express slots, three M.2 slots, and two MXM slots for high-performance GPU modules or custom FPGA modules.
When coupled with a COM Express module and optional GPUs enables the COBALT S1901 offers potentially several GPUs and flexible I/O, the COBALT S1901 enables defense systems integrators to host their challenging sensor-based applications without resorting to expensive blade-based chassis systems.
