The DuraCOR® 820-A is a rugged tactical mission processor based on the ultra low-power 1.6Ghz Intel® Atom™ CPU, optimally designed for Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP)-constrained military / aerospace vehicle and aircraft installations.
Mechanically compact (~ 3.0” tall, ~3lbs weight), this small form-factor computer subsystem integrates Gigabit Ethernet and MIL-STD-1553 (optional) connectivity, along with digital I/O and standard PC interfaces, including analog video, 3x USB, 2x RS-232 serial, keyboard, and mouse.
For application flexibility, the unit comes with a 4GB industrial solid state disk (SSD) pre-loaded with a Linux® or Windows Embedded® operating system, as well as a 16 GB CompactFlash disk for file storage.
Designed for avionics and ground vehicle platforms to enhance situational awareness and computational capabilities, the DuraCOR 820-A delivers processing and multimedia performance comparable (or better) to Pentium M-based DuraCOR solutions, but with less power consumption, double the RAM memory capacity, and dual Flash SSDs. The system is also equipped with a 28V high efficiency power supply compliant with MIL-STD-1275 and MIL-STD-704 voltages, spikes, and surges.
The DuraCOR 820-A is designed for use under extended temperature (-40 to +71°C) and other demanding MIL-STD-810F environmental conditions (thermal, shock, vibration, altitude, humidity). Its conductively cooled, sealed aluminium chassis incorporates protection from water and dust ingress, as well as MIL-STD-461E emissions and susceptibility. Power and system I/O signals are brought out through lightweight, high-density MIL-38999-like connectors, making the product an ideal solution for a variety of unmanned and manned command and control (C2) applications.
The unit is based on a modular PC/104-Plus architecture, making it possible to special order with customer-specific I/O configurations, determined by the available connector pinouts.
