This high-performance Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) tactical computer integrates a low-power 1.4GHz Pentium-M™ processor (equivalent to a 2.8GHz Pentium 4™) together with a MIL-STD-704/1275 compliant power supply securely mounted in an aluminum PC/104 card cage. Up to 6 spare slots are available for PC/104(+) expansion cards. To enable rapid deployment, a solid state disk comes pre-loaded with a Linux® or Windows XP Embedded® operating system image.
Locking MIL-DTL-38999 circular connectors bring out a rugged RJ-45 Ethernet connection, 4 USB ports, 2 RS-232 ports, VGA Video, Keyboard, Mouse, and Audio signals, as well as an expansion connector for up to 79 signals from optional add-on cards. A cable-less internal interconnect scheme is used to ensure high reliability, signal integrity, and ease of customization. The 79-pin connector is conveniently routed to an internal breakout board and headers so that application specific PC/104(+) cards can be easily integrated. A set of five LED indicators on the connector panel displays power and user-defined status outputs.
