CompactPCI Systems for Challenging Environments

June 1, 2011
Designed for control applications in challenging environments such as unmanned vehicles, launch vehicles, and commercial helicopters and aircraft, the CRS-C2I-3CC1 and CRS-C3I-3CB1 2-slot and 3-slot rugged CompactPCI systems are said to be a cost-effective alternative to in-house development, providing off-the-shelf, packaged, self-contained solutions that shorten design, development, integration and testing time.

The systems feature Intel Core processors, and compliment earlier-announced systems based on the Freescale MPC7448 processor. All are available in a wide range of application-specific configurations that can be delivered in a rugged, convection- or base-plate-cooled 3U chassis. The systems combine the company’s commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) boards and modules into open modular systems that are tested and qualified for rugged systems deployment. These single board computers feature the processor, 1 Gbyte of RAM and 4 GBytes of Flash memory, and are supplied standard with Linux, Windows or the VxWorks real-time operating system software. I/O capabilities include Ethernet, serial, USB, CANbus, MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC 429, as well as discrete I/O. For more information:
