ADLINK Technology, Inc. Posted 10/07/2015
Smallest VITA 75 compliant system on the market offers high performance graphics processing for ground, air vehicle applications.
SAN JOSE, CA – ADLINK Technology, a leading global provider of cloud-based services, intelligent gateways, and embedded building blocks for edge devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced the release of the compact, Extreme Rugged™ HPERC-IBR-H Series military grade system in a sealed, IP67-rated enclosure featuring high speed MIL-DTL-38999 connectors. At just 63.5/100mm (2.5/3.9 inch) x 150/178mm (5.9/7 inch) x 203mm (8.0 inch), the HPERC-IBR-H Series is a highly integrated, compact VITA 75 compliant unit almost 30% smaller than other leading competitive products1. The HPERC-IBR-H Series meets SWaP (Size, Weight and Power) requirements for modern military applications, with a focus on sensor data display, command, and control for mission computing in military ground or naval vehicles and mass image acquisition and processing for payload computing in UAVs.
The HPERC-IBR-H Series is a follow-on to ADLINK’s HPERC-IBR-M Series and features two models, the HPERC-IBR-HC coldplate mount system and the HPERC-IBR-HH finned-convection systems. Both units offer dual- or quad-core Intel® Core™ i7 processor technology and optional GPGPU parallel processing engine on a 16-lane 3rd generation PCI Express interface, as well as DDR3L-1333 ECC soldered down memory up to 16GB. The Extreme Rugged™ system also includes dual removable solid state drives, as well as four USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, four GbE, seven Serial (RS-232/422/485), and one VGA plus three digital video HDMI/DisplayPort/DVI interfaces. The HPERC-IBR-H Series provides expansion options to support fast and easy integration of additional interface cards such as PCI/104-Express and Mini PCI Express.
“The HPERC-IBR-H Series offers intense capabilities in a compact form factor, leveraging high performance graphics capabilities and a wealth of I/O support for camera and vehicle data busses,” said Yong Luo, general manager of ADLINK's Embedded Computing Product Segment. “This tightly integrated solution offers equivalent or better performance than competitive systems in a smaller footprint, with space requirements being a critical component of any successful in-vehicle military applications.”
To endure harsh environments, the HPERC-IBR-H Series was developed using ADLINK’s Rugged by Design methodology to withstand extreme shock, corrosion and galvanic oxidation. The HPERC-IBR offers flexible cooling options: the HPERC-IBR-HC (-40°C to +85°C) for cold-plate cooling, and the HPERC-IBR-HH (-40°C to +75°C) designed for natural convection cooling.
The ADLINK HPERC Series is compliant to VITA 75 20/21/22 small form factor mounting and provides a wide array of fast I/O via MIL-DTL-38999 connectors. Additional expansion interfaces to meet the demands of various sensor suites are easily added with user-defined I/O pins.
