Acromag and Alta Data Technologies (Alta) have partnered to introduce a new product that provides unparalleled performance and configuration flexibility for rugged avionics systems. Acromag’s ARCX embedded computer and Alta’s avionics interface cards are leveraging advances in rugged, modular systems to offer excellent value and flexibility in defence applications.
Featuring a customisable-off-the-shelf (COTS) Intel i7 with one or two PMC/XMC expansion sites, the ARCX embedded computer has a rugged, small form factor box designed to meet IP67 standards for a dependable, sealed, fanless system. Alta offers a wide variety of avionics PMC and XMC MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC high density interface cards that have been field tested with the ARCX.
Key features of the rugged ARCX system include 4th Generation Intel Core CPU and single or double PMC/XMC sites and 38999 connectors; and SWaP-optimised for military/aerospace deployable systems such as vetronics, C4ISR, payload management, and command and control for drones and robotics.
When combined with Alta’s proven 1553 or ARINC interface cards and Acromag’s large PMC/XMC, the combined product offers numerous configuration options using COTS solutions. For example, an ARCX i7 Quad Core system with Alta’s MIL-STD-1553 or ARINC PMC cards and advanced FPGA PMC provides unmatched system capabilities for DSP, video and avionics system capabilities.
When Alta’s PMC/XMC MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC products are combined with Acromag’s huge standard I/O and FPGA processing cards, the user has almost unlimited I/O and processing expansion options in the smallest possible footprint.
Alta can provide 1-20 1553 channels and 4-60 ARINC channels in a single, small rugged computer with quad core i7 performance, creating a market-leading high performance avionics system controller, monitor or recorder.
