Elma Expands Family of Rugged Routers & Switches for Enhanced Edge Computing in Mission-Critical Embedded Applications

Three new NetSys models use powerful Cisco embedded series router (ESR-6300)
Technology Highlights:
  • SWaP-optimized and rugged for remote and mobile environments
  • Three new models provide range of switching options
  • Onboard encryption modules enhance router performance
  • Scalable configurations for increased capabilities
FREMONT, Calif., April 2022 – Elma Electronic Inc. has added three new models to its NetSys family of rugged, secure networking systems that facilitate edge computing in a number of mission-critical applications. Utilizing an onboard encryption module that offloads packet encryption and decryption from the routing engine, the routers provide increased data handling performance.
The basis of all three small form factor (SFF) models is Cisco’s ESR-6300 that delivers IP-based data, voice and video to mobile users with fast and secure network performance. Enterprise-grade Cisco IOS XE routing and switching security features help ensure highly secure voice, video, and data communication.
New models include:
  • NetSys-5310: router with an ARM QuadCore A72 CPU
  • NetSys-5311: router adds POE & POE+ support and up to 60 GB Flash storage with expansion capability
  • NetSys-5312: router also adds two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports and either 7 or 23 Gigabit Ethernet ports via an ESS-3300 switch for advanced networking functionality
Mark Littlefield, senior manager embedded computing solutions at Elma Electronic Inc., noted, “The dependable architecture provided by the integrated Cisco IOS Embedded Services Routing (ESR) software provides secure connectivity for mobile and remote data applications. Combining this functionality with Elma’s expertise in ruggedized electronics means systems designers can confidently employ secure data, voice and video communications in the growing number of applications that require computing at the edge.”
To ensure data integrity, the included onboard Trust Anchor module (TAm), along with image signing, Secure Boot and runtime defenses, ensures that the code running on the ESR-6300 hardware platform is authentic, unmodified and operating as intended.
Based on Elma’s building block design concept for modular electronics, the SWaP-optimized NetSys models are extendable and configurable for cost-effective upgrades in future expansion or system redefinition.
Elma’s NetSys family brings Cisco Mobile Ready Net capabilities to mobile and fixed IP based network routing capability deployed in harsh environments encountered in drilling and mining operations, commercial air and ground transport infrastructure, energy distribution, mobile ground, shipboard and air defense equipment, homeland security and emergency services.
Elma’s other SFF modular embedded computing systems include the ComSys family for communication-based computing and JetSys series for AI-based processing.

What is “real-time control” and why do you need it?

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Real-time control is the ability of a closed-loop system to gather data, process that data and update the system within a defined time window. If the system misses that defined window, its stability, precision and efficiency will degrade. Diminished control can be detrimental to system performance; for example, not achieving the necessary speeds or even overheating. This article will explain the functional blocks of a real-time control system and provide an example of a robotics application.
