Rugged XMC for military, aerospace, vehicle, and rail applications introduced by X-ES
MIDDLETON, Wis., 22 April 2013. Extreme Engineering Solutions Inc. (X-ES) in Middleton, Wis., is introducing the rugged XPort5005 express mezzanine card (XMC) for military, aerospace, land vehicle, and rail transportation applications.
Users can configure the module to support a platform's specific I/O or storage needs in a wide variety of military embedded systems.
The XPort5005 enables systems integrators to support varying I/O and storage requirements of different platforms, X-ES officials say. Users can support CAN bus, GPS, IEEE 1394 (FireWire), MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, Solid-State Drives (SSD), AES-256 encryption, GPIO, WLAN (Wi-Fi), WiMax, Cellular (4G/LTE and 3G), RS-232, Bluetooth, and other kinds of I/O.
The small size of Mini PCI Express and mSATA modules helps the XPort5005 support as many as two full-height (F2/H1) and one half-height (H1) module within one XMC.
The XPort5005 supports operational temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius for conduction-cooled applications and -40 to 70 C for convection-cooled applications.
The XPort5005's XMC form factor enables access to Mini PCI Express and mSATA modules for other form factors that host XMC sites. These include 3U VPX and 3U CompactPCI modules.
Designers can add as many as two XPort5005s to 6U VPX, 6U VME, and 6U CompactPCI modules. The XPort5005 fit in small-form-factor (SFF) and embedded box computer systems that include XMC sites.
