Rugged Industrial SBCs

Aitech Defense Systems

Aitech Defense Systems Inc. is bringing its expertise in rugged, high performance embedded boards and systems to the industrial market. The new industrial line-up includes two 6U VME SBCs, one based on the Intel Haswell processor and one that is Freescale QorIQ-based.

Aitech's new rugged, industrial SBCs offer a wide range of memory storage options and I/O, making them ideal for a variety of embedded commercial, industrial and Naval applications. Operating temperature for the boards is up to -20°C to +60°C.

The Ai-VM163S, with an Intel 4th gen Core i7 quad core processor running at 2.4 GHz, is a high-performance board with 32 GB of onboard SATA flash to efficiently process video and graphics.

Geared more for real-time control system applications, the Ai-VM111S incorporates Freescale's newest QorlQ T4 quad core, dual-threaded, Altivec-enabled T4080 processer with a speed of up to 1.5 GHz. It includes 128 MB of NOR Flash for mass data and code storage operations.

For higher reliability, the two boards each provide ECC-protected SDRAM memory and come with two standard mezzanine slots, one and one XMC. The addition of these two mezzanine sites offers added design flexibility as well as onboard resources to ensure reliable, real-time operation. To support real-time process control, the boards also include eight counter/timers, a multi-function watchdog timer, temperature sensors and a real-time clock with on-board power back-up.

Supported software for both includes VxWorks and , with the Ai-VM163S supporting Windows and the Ai-VM111S supporting INTEGRITY, as well. The 6U VME SBCs are air-cooled per IEEE 1101.10-1996.
