CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., 26 Feb. 2010.Embedded computer specialist GE Intelligent Platforms in Charlottesville, Va., is introducing the bCOM2-L1100 rugged COM Express computer board for use in harsh-environment, space-constrained applications such as aerospace and defense, unmanned vehicles, oil and gas exploration, and mining.

The bCOM2-L1100 computer boards the Intel Core2 Duo processor operating as fast as 2.26 GHz and as much as 4 gigabytes of soldered DDR3 SDRAM solid-state memory. The bCOM2-L1100 single-board computer operates in temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius, and is optionally available in extended temperature variants and with conformal coating.

A carrier board is required for the bCOM2-L1100 CPU board. The CCAR-L1000 carrier board is available for initial development and testing. I/O includes Gigabit Ethernet, eight USB 2.0 ports, four Serial ATA (SATA) ports (RAID-configurable), one PATA port, eight GPIO ports (four in, four out), one LVDS port, two SDVO channels, VGA, High Definition Audio (HDA) and PCI Express (configurable as one 4x PCI Express lane or four 1x PCI Express lanes). Also provided is a x16 PCI Express port for high-end graphics and video applications.

"Not only does the bCOM2-L1100 provide a solution for customers who need the kind of rugged reliability associated with VMEbus and PCI Express in the small form factor of COM Express, but it is also in the way it combines performance with rugged reliability," says Juergen Eder, product manager at GE Intelligent Platforms.
