ADLINK Technology’s Extreme Rugged HPERC-IBR system is designed to meet challenging SWaP (size, weight, and power) requirements for modern ground and aerial vehicle applications. According to the company, the computer system is one of the first implementations of the VITA 75 standard to address commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) requirements for unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) applications. It incorporates the third-generation Intel Core processor, and there’s an optional general-purpose computing on graphics processing unit (GPGPU). Also included is up to 16 Gbytes of DDR3L-1333 error-correcting code (ECC) soldered-down memory; dual removable solid-state drives with available RAID 0/1, and four USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, four Ethernet, seven serial, eight GPIO, and three HDMI/DisplayPort/DVI interfaces. Expansion options facilitate integration of additional interface cards, such as PCI/104-Express and Mini PCI Express. By implementing the company’s Rugged by Design methodology, the system can withstand extreme shock, corrosion, and galvanic oxidation.
