Sealevel Systems COM Express solution for augmented realitySealevel Systems highlights how the company’s COM Express-based computing solutions have been used in the development of an augmented reality system that displays and records video overlaid with mission-critical information for law enforcement, search & rescue, firefighters, military, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and more.

A leader in augmented reality mapping systems approached Sealevel to help develop their next-generation system and geospatial video recorder. The goal was to create a product that could perform tasks such as the display and recording of live video of ground-based targets overlaid with street names and points of interest in real time.

The key design challenge was the requirement for a very small footprint combined with high-performance specifications, extremely dense I/O features and wide operating temperature range.

Sealevel’s engineering team created a custom dual-board carrier solution packed with a large amount of I/O in a very small form factor. The COM Express Type 6 carrier board was designed for a -40C° to +85°C operating temperature range, and features a wide I/O set including:

  • Four ARINC 429
  • Two Gigabit Ethernet
  • Four USB 3.0
  • Eight analogue-to-digital
  • One digital-to-analogue
  • Twenty GPIO
  • Four differential audio
  • Ten serial
  • Four PS/2
  • One CAN bus interface
  • HDMIS, SDI, component and composite interfaces
  • Dual M.2 expansion
