Acromag, an electronics manufacturer in Wixom, has introduced a new rugged, small form factor (SFF) embedded computer system – the ARCX1100 – with modular I/O for signal processing, communication, and control functions for defense, industrial, and mobile embedded computing systems.
The ARCX1100 is designed for test and measurement, data acquisition and control, communication, avionics, simulation, and signal processing. The rugged design is engineered to withstand 50g shock and 5g vibration.
“Compact, rugged, and extremely versatile, the ARCX1100 provides high-performance embedded computing in a simple, affordable package,” says Robert Greenfield, business development manager at Acromag.
The ARCX1100 is optimized for size, weight, power, and cost with a COM Express Type 10 CPU and four slots for Acromag’s plug-in AcroPack I/O modules. The overall size with an integrated removable SSD bay is just 7.6 x 7.6 x 3.25 inches and 4.55 pounds.
Its fanless, extended temperature operation from -40 to 71°C is supported with an Intel Atom E3950 (Apollo Lake) processor and four AcroPack I/O modules installed. Peripherals include two RJ45 gigabit Ethernet, two USB 3.0, two RS232, mini DisplayPort, and audio ports, plus M.2 and SATA data storage connectors.
“The modular design combining a low-power mini COM Express processor with up to four AcroPack I/O modules offers unprecedented flexibility and upgradeability without compromising reliability,” says Greenfield.
