SWaP-optimized, Open Standards-based Platform Improves Performance for Rugged, Space-constrained Applications

Elma enhances line of Cisco-enabled rugged embedded services routers

Technical Highlights

  • Easy CPU, storage and I/O upgrades reduce tech refresh costs
  • Configurable design uses Type 6 COM Express and mini PCIe modules
  • Highly flexible, expandable I/O enables fast system redefinition
  • Specifically designed for rugged applications needing high temperature, shock and vibration resistance

FREMONT, Calif., January 2018 – Elma Electronic Inc. now offers the ComSys-5301, a highly rugged version of its Cisco-enabled embedded computing system designed for SWaP-constrained, harsh environments.  Based on the industry standard COM Express and mini PCIe form factors, the modular computer is easily configured and upgraded with application-targeted I/O, CPU and storage.

Designed using Elma’s extensive packaging expertise, the new ComSys-5301 endures tough environmental conditions to provide highly reliable, long-term performance. With special attention paid to SWaP optimization, the system is lightweight and energy-efficient, while still offering high performance processing.

The integration of advanced computing technology with a rugged, compact design makes the ComSys-5301 perfect for use in ground vehicles, unmanned systems and vehicles, drilling and mining operations, command centers and other mission critical applications.

The fanless ComSys-5301 uses passive conduction cooling and features a 4th Gen Intel Celeron CPU, solid state storage, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports and flexible I/O configurations. Robust MIL-38999 connectors ensure that the I/O interfaces can withstand severe environmental conditions, such as intense shock, vibration and humidity, typically found in rugged, mobile applications.

Approximate weight is just 6 lbs. and the system can be wall or table mounted, per VITA 75.

Pricing for the ComSys-5301 is dependent on configuration.
