Field-deployable computing platform

Elma Electronic Inc.’s S50J computing platform is a reliable and rugged, field-deployable system with abundant configurable I/O for maximum design versatility. Most I/O schemes can be supported using tailored I/O panels, and the S50J also features expandable aluminum sidewalls for easy sizing. The fanless system platform is suited for applications in which system reliability is critical and environmental conditions can be extreme. Specific uses include signal processing, hyperspectral imaging, tactical command and control, as well as surveillance and reconnaissance. Using application-specific I/O expansion cards, the S50J can easily accommodate video compression and frame grabbers, ARINC and 1553 cards, WiFi, CAN bus, data storage, or FPGA (field-programmable gate array) and GPGPU (general-purpose computing on graphics processing units) processing.
