The F-Series rugged computer combines a configurable structure with Intel's 4th generation Quad or Dual Core processor, and uses custom I/O panels, expandable sidewall modules and application-specific PC/104 Express I/O expansion cards.
The F-Series can take on additional I/O including video compression and frame grabbers, ARINC and 1553 cards, Ethernet and Ethernet switching, plus field-programmable gate array (FPGA) and general-purpose graphics processing unit (GPGPU) processing.
The F-Series takes advantage of Intel's processor and all its capabilities, including the 8-series QM87 PCH chipset, making the system useful for multi-core processing in space-constrained, rugged or extended-temperature environments.
By combining -high speed I/O with a high performance HD4600 graphics engine, the F- Series incorporates a thermally conductive base as well as ribbed sidewalls and fins to provide convection and conduction cooling.
The mission computer operates in temperatures from -40 to 70 degrees Celsius, and is designed to MIL-STD-810F for high shock and vibration applications.
Offered in three different modular chassis sizes to fit different configuration environments, Elma's F- Series embedded computer can help systems designers meet stringent size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements, Elma officials say.
