Industrial PC is ideal alternative to PC/104 systems
Many customers have turned to Acromag looking for a more efficient way of building a small, industrial PC with a custom I/O configuration. The I/O Server fits this bill quite well with an fanless box computer that cleanly integrates an Intel Atom CPU, a gamut of peripheral ports, and an internal four-slot carrier card for a mix of I/O modules. There are no internal cables, and conduction cooling enables dependable 0 to 85°C operation. Best of all, no custom enclosure is necessary to protect the electronics from dirt or moisture and the I/O connectors come cleanly out the front. More Information
White Paper and Webcast on Designing with FPGAs
In case you missed it, there is still time to view the recorded webinar on designing with FPGA modules for computing speed and flexibility. We explain how advanced Xilinx Virtex FPGAs make use of multiple digital clock managers and simultaneous parallel execution to rapidly compute algorithms up to 1000X faster than a CPU on a typical RTOS. You’ll also learn about soft-core IP, development tools, and the flexibility of I/O mezzanine interfaces. And to illustrate the benefits, you’ll hear about applications such as turbine control, aerial refueling, radar tracking, and threat detection.
