The fanless system platform is ideal for applications where system reliability is paramount 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, CANBus, data storage, or FPGA and GPGPU processing.  This facilitates easier system configuration to cost-effectively support program evolution, while mitigating design risks.

The feature-rich EPIC-based embedded board in the S50J features a high performance, yet low heat generating, Intel Core i7 processor with an Intel QM57 Express Chipset.  The full system incorporates 10 gigabit Ethernet ports, up to six USB 2.0 and four SATA ports and eight independent serial ports. Support is available for both Linux and Windows.

IP65-rated for protection against dust as well as low pressure water jets from all directions, the S50J delivers reliable performance in dusty, humid and wet environments and when exposed to extreme temperatures from -20 degrees C to +60 degrees C.

The rugged system platform incorporates a thermally conductive base as well as ribbed top and bottom covers to provide convection and conduction cooling for superior thermal management.  Additional features include EMC shielding, compact dimensions of 10.5" D x 9" W x 4.75" H (267 mm x 229 mm x 121 mm) and a weight of 14 lbs (6.4 kg).

Technical Specifications:

  • Multiple I/O configurations via expansion modules
  • High performance Intel Core i7 processor with Intel QM57 Express Chipset
  • Rugged, IP65-rated enclosure with EMC shielding
  • Wide operating temperature from -20 degrees C to +60 degrees C
  • Fanless with conduction and convection cooling for maximum heat dissipations

Pricing for the S50J starts at $6,100 in quantities of 10 and is configuration dependent.  Lead time is 12 weeks ARO.
