Rugged PC/104 System Targets Military Apps

Adlink Technology is looking to put more PC/104 boards into very rugged environments with its MilSystem 800. This STD-MIL-38999 version of the already rugged RuffSystem 800 is a conductioncooled enclosure that’s dustproof and splashproof with an operating temperature range of –40°C to 75°C. The motherboard holds a 1.4-GHz Pentium M with 1 Gbyte of double-data rate (DDR) memory plus a 32-Gbyte solid-state drive and a Compact- Flash slot that can hold an additional 16 Gbytes. Peripherals include a Gigabit Etherenet and a 10/100 Ethernet port. There are four USB, four serial, and PS2, audio, and video ports. External expansion is via a pair of STD-MIL-38999 connectors. Internal expansion supports up to two PC/104 cards.
