Micromax has been providing high technology electronic products and automation solutions to Australian industry for more than 45 years.
Micromax announced the availability of a high-reliability Intel Atom-based rugged system from ADLINK Technology Inc., a leading supplier of embedded computers.
Targeting harsh applications, Ampro by ADLINK RuffSystem 735 integrates a high-efficiency processor, RAM, graphics, networking, serial I/O and PC/104-Plus expansion into an Extreme Rugged™ enclosure, capable of operating in extreme temperatures at full CPU speed.
The RuffSystem 735 is designed for ruggedness and reliability in mission-critical applications where other systems would fail such as military vehicles, transportation control and field monitoring.
The system excels in high vibration mobile applications.
Leveraging Ampro by ADLINK Extreme Rugged boards and having no moving parts, these systems run reliably for years with absolutely zero maintenance. In remote mobile applications, this translates to mission success.
Designed from the ground up for use in harsh environments, the RuffSystem 735 integrates Extreme Rugged™ boards in a complete turnkey general purpose computer system, simplifying the system integration process and improving time-to-market.
The RuffSystem 735 features a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor N270, up to 2GB of DDR2 RAM and Intel GMA 950 graphics core supporting display resolutions of up to 2048x1536 at 75Hz.
A broad range of I/O includes one Gigabit and one Fast Ethernet port (dual GbE available Q3 2010), four USB 2.0 ports, stereo audio, four serial ports (two supporting RS232/422/485) and a parallel port.
Storage is provided by an internal conventional or solid-state drive (SSD) via SATA interface and a CompactFlash socket. The system also provides flexible expansion with PCI Express Mini Card slot and PC/104-Plus interface.
The Ampro by ADLINK MilSystem 735 (available Q2 2010) provides the same level of ruggedness as the RuffSystem 735, but uses MIL-STD-D38999 connectors in place of the standard PC connectors found on the RuffSystem. Both systems are fanless, designed to meet MIL-STD-810 shock and vibration as well as operate at full speed in an extended operating temperature range of -40°C to 75°C.
The RuffSystem and MilSystem 735 are available at competitive prices with preinstalled Ubuntu Linux 8.04 LTS or the Microsoft Windows XP Professional operating system.
The systems also support a full range of additional embedded and desktop operating systems including VxWorks.
