New Performance Mission Computing Systems Improve Processing Capabilities in Rugged, Space-constrained Applications

Modular configurations provide performance levels that meet edge computing needs
Technical Highlights
  • Cisco-certified secure mobile IP routing for reliable computing at-the-edge
  • SWaP-optimized, rugged systems for harsh and remote environments
  • High capacity storage and numerous I/O expansion options
  • Easily configurable Type 6-based design: COM Express and Mini PCIe 

FREMONT, Calif., January 2020 – Elma Electronic Inc. has expanded its line of Cisco-based mission computing systems used in rugged and harsh environments. Based on modular building blocks, the new ComSys-536x family utilizes Elma’s extensive packaging expertise to offer many performance and expansion configurations that meet specific computing-at-the-edge requirements.

The Type 6 COM Express-based systems can be configured using a choice of Intel CPUs, from Atom to Xeon to provide optimum power-to-performance in a compact, SWaP-optimized platform.

Other ways the ComSys-536x systems are easily adapted to a user’s requirements is via expandable high-capacity SATA storage, upgradeable as mission requirements change. A host of I/O configurations spans from Gigabit Ethernet, CANbus and WiFi to Serial I/O, ARINC-429 and MIL-STD-1553 providing fast reconfiguration as applications evolve and mandate enhancements to the I/O.

A growing number of mission-critical, remote applications need computing at-the-edge to ensure data integrity and system viability.  Elma’s new ComSys-536x family withstands the harsh environments found in transportation, disaster recovery and mining and drilling operations to provide long-term, reliable performance.

All Elma ComSys platforms include the Cisco 5921 embedded services router (ESR) with Mobile Ready Net capabilities. The 5921 is agnostic and designed for small, low-power, Linux-based platforms, making it highly adaptable for a range of custom systems that need high-performance, SWaP-optimized embedded computing.

Pricing for and delivery for the ComSys-536x family is dependent upon configuration.

Five Things You Should Know About Linear Regulators

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

While linear regulators (LDOs) seem relatively simple, many situations occur in which LDOs perform contrary to your expectations. This application note explores five of those situations, including startup, quiescent current near dropout, load transient performance, PSRR and noise, and input protections. Understanding these situations will improve product selection and debug processes.
