Ecrin Systems has released a new rugged computer specifically targeted to space-constrained environments such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), ground vehicles and manned aircraft subject to extremes of temperature, shock and vibration.
Named ‘ONYX’, the computer is based on a rugged COM Express module design and offered with a range of powerful processors. ONYX has an embedded graphics acceleration module and a high number of expansion slots to increase flexibility, allowing for integration in a variety of applications. The unit is targeted to high-end analog and digital video and broadcast SMPTE, overlay, EAS-NI encryption and H.264 AVC compression.
The small-form rugged aluminium housing measures 270mm x 250mm x 88mm, weighs just 7.1kg and is environmentally protected to IP67.
