SBS Technologies, represented by Metromatics , has introduced a versatile rugged operational computer (ROC) that defines a new standard for deployable lightweight, compact vehicle computers.
The ruggedised ROC vehicle computer is a powerful and compact PMC computing system. Weighing less than three kilos, the ROC fits well into the tight spaces usually found in military vehicle applications.
The ROC can be configured with an Intel or PowerPC processor PMC and is the first in a new line of general purpose vehicle computers, giving a true off-the-shelf solution to the challenge of providing low-cost, high density computing and I/O capabilities within an integrated avionics, navtronics and vetronics application.
The ROC chassis has a modular stacked PMC architecture, an integrated 100W power supply and EMI filter, and a solid state fast Compact Flash disk with up to 128GB of memory mounted on a PMC carrier module.
A wide variety of optional PMC processor modules and discrete and analogue I/O PMC modules provide flexible user control and in-circuit programmability.
Other control interfaces and I/O options, including any standard SBS or 3rd party conduction-cooled PMCs, are available upon request.
The ROC supports many embedded operating systems including VxWorks, INTEGRITY, Windows XP and Linux.
