Sealevel 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
