Operating in extreme conditions

ADLINK Technology introduces Rugged System based on High Efficiency Intel® Atom™ processor

ADLINK Technology has a high-reliability Intel® Atom™-based rugged system. The Ampro by ADLINK™ RuffSystem™ 735 integrates a high-efficiency processor, RAM, graphics, networking, serial I/O, and PC/104-Plus expansion into an Extreme Rugged™ enclosure, capable of operating in extreme temperatures at full CPU speed.

The RuffSystem™ 735 is designed for ruggedness and reliability in mission critical applications where other systems would fail, such as transportation control, and field monitoring. The system excels in high vibration mobile applications. Leveraging Ampro by ADLINK™ Extreme Rugged™ boards and having no moving parts, these systems run reliably for years and years with absolutely zero maintenance. In remote mobile applications, this translates to mission success.

Designed from the ground up for use in harsh environments, the RuffSystem™ 735 integrates Extreme Rugged™ boards in a complete turnkey general purpose computer system, simplifying the system integration process and improving time-to-market.

The RuffSystem™ 735 features a 1.6GHz Intel® Atom™ processor N270, up to 2GB of DDR2 RAM, and Intel® GMA 950 graphics core supporting display resolutions of up to 2048x1536 at 75Hz. A broad range of I/O includes one Gigabit and one Fast Ethernet port (dual GbE in Q3), four USB 2.0 ports, stereo audio, 4 serial ports (2 supporting RS232/422/485), and parallel port. Storage is provided by an internal conventional or solid state drive (SSD) via SATA interface and a CompactFlash® socket. The system also provides flexible expansion with PCI Express® Mini Card slot and PC/104-Plus interface.

The Ampro by ADLINK™ MilSystem™ 735 (will be available in Q2, 2010) provides the same level of ruggedness as the RuffSystem™ 735, but uses MIL-STD-D38999 connectors in place of the standard PC connectors found on the RuffSystem™. Both systems are fanless, designed to meet MIL-STD-810 shock & vibration, and operate at full speed in an extended operating temperature range of -40°C to 75°C.

The RuffSystem™ and MilSystem™ 735 are available at competitive prices with Ubuntu Linux 8.04 LTS or Windows® XP Professional preinstalled. The systems also support a full range of additional embedded and desktop operating systems, including VxWorks.
