SBS Technologies, represented by Metromatics , has introduced the CM4 3U CompactPCI single board computer for new and legacy commercial, and government COTS applications operating in harsh environments.
CM4, with its rugged, ultra-compact, single-slot, all-in-one concept is designed to maintain reliability under severe conditions including high shock, vibration and extreme temperatures.
Based on PowerPC architecture, CM4 offers flexible processor and RAM configurations and an array of on-board peripherals including 10/100 Mb/s Ethernet, timers and interfaces.
Special features include four serial channels with RS232 and RS422/485 interfacing, two DMA controllers, four timers, 32kB of non-volatile SRAM, real time clock, temperature sensor, and I20 intelligent I/O support.
Rugged and military needs are addressed with optional conduction cooling, extended temperature range of up to -40°C to 85°C, stiffener bars and wedge locks that increase shock and vibration immunity.
Conformal Coating is available for enhanced protection against dust and other contaminants.
