Elma releases SWaP-optimized, open standards-based platform for rugged, space-constrained applications

January 16, 2018 Elma Electronic Inc

Elma Electronic Inc. now offers the ComSys-5301, a highly rugged embedded computing system designed for SWaP-constrained, harsh environments. Based on the industry standard COM Express and mini PCIe form factors, the modular computer:

  • Can be configured and upgraded with application-targeted I/O, CPU, and storage
  • Uses Type 6 COM Express and mini PCIe modules
  • Offers flexible, expandable I/O
  • Is designed for rugged applications needing high temperature, shock and vibration resistance

The new ComSys-5301 endures tough environmental conditions to provide 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 suitable 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. 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.
