Rugged embedded computer with boot-kick display introduced by GMS for military and avionics applications

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., 10 June 2011. General Micro Systems Inc. (GMS) in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., is introducing the S822-D small, rugged computer for vetronics in combat vehicles, avionics in aircraft, and other aerospace and defense applications that require embedded computing capability in harsh conditions, as well as in confined and complex spaces. The optional rugged sunlight-readable, boot-kickable, 1024-by-768-pixel, eight-wire touch-screen display has modes for night vision and blackout for covert operations, and works with gloves, cleans easily and resists scratches.

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., 10 June 2011. General Micro Systems Inc. (GMS) in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., is introducing the S822-D small, rugged computer for vetronics in combat vehicles, avionics in aircraft, and other aerospace and defense applications that require embedded computing capability in harsh conditions, as well as in confined and complex spaces.The modular S822-D computer is powered by an Intel Core Duo Penryn microprocessor with clock speeds as fast as 2.26 GHz, six megabytes of L2 cache, eight gigabytes of 1066 MHz DDR-3 memory, and two removable solid state drives with as much as 512 megabytes of data storage each. The base computer consumes 30 Watts of power and measures 8.5 by 13.25 by 2.75 inches. The unit can operate with out without a display.The optional rugged sunlight-readable, 1024-by-768-pixel, eight-wire touch-screen boot-kick display has modes for night vision and blackout for covert operations, and works with gloves, cleans easily and resists scratches, breakage, and inadvertent activation. Backlit keys enable operations in the dark.

The display has a wide viewing angle, an LED backlight, boot-kick/EMI screen protection, and is sealed from water, dust, and other contaminants. The coated and etched glass overlay provides avionics-grade quality.

Options include five USB-2.0 ports; four SATA ports; four RS232/422/485 ports; eight buffered or unbuffered general I/O lines; x16XMC, x1XMC (or 100MHz/64bit PMC-X sites with PIM or dual Mini PCI sites); and three Express Mini sites.

Secure erase and data encryption on drives help protect against software-based attacks. Rugged, conduction-cooled versions with display operate in temperatures from -20 to 70 degrees Celsius, while non-display versions operate in temperatures from -40 to 85 C. The computers comply to MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-704E, and MIL-STD-461F.

Software support includes Windows XP/XPE/7, Linux, and VxWorks. For more information contact General Micro Systems online at www.gms4sbc.com.
