COTS pre-configured rugged systems available

GE Fanuc Embedded Systems : 14 November, 2013  (New Product)
GE has introduced pre-configured, ready-to-run rugged systems for a variety of platforms to speed product development
COTS pre-configured rugged systems available

GE Intelligent Platforms has announced two further additions to its rapidly expanding family of COTS Rugged Systems (CRS) that are designed to minimize program risk, cost and time to market. Available as pre-configured, ready-to-run systems, and bringing the total number of standard CRS solutions offered by GE to ten, they are available on very short lead times for customers looking to make an immediate start on systems development.

Both new systems are intended for deployment in demanding, harsh environments such as civilian and military autonomous vehicles, commercial and military aircraft, ground vehicles, helicopters, over- and underwater research vessels, and locomotives.

The first system, the CRS-D4I-3VB1, is a conduction, cold plate cooled, 3U VPX application-ready computer; housed in a 4-slot chassis utilizing a single board computer featuring Intel Core i7 processor technology. The second, the CRS-D8I-3VF1, is also a 3U VPX platform centred on an Intel Core i7 processor, but it is housed in a ½ ATR rugged conduction, forced air cooled chassis, and affords additional flexibility/expandability through the provision of eight slots. Both systems offer significant I/O capability including MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, serial, discrete, USB, audio, Gigabit Ethernet, VGA, DVI, and HD-SDI.

Both solutions are powered by a 28 VDC power supply that meets MIL-STD-704F. The ½ ATR solution also has the option to support a 115 VAC, 400Hz single-phase power supply. The solutions are designed to withstand the most demanding environments in accordance with MIL-STD-810.

“In these challenging times, customers want proven, risk-free solutions; they want them now; and they want them at affordable prices,” said Mac Rothstein, Systems Product Manager at GE Intelligent Platforms. “It’s this need that our growing family of COTS Rugged Systems is responding to – ready-made solutions that are pre-integrated and pre-tested, that require minimal NRE, that are readily available and that cost substantially less than assembling the piece parts.”

“Beyond that,” continued Rothstein, “single point of contact support means that administration is simplified, downtime is minimized, productivity is maximized, and time-to-deployment is shortened.”

GE’s COTS Rugged Systems family includes a broad range of platforms, based on processors from Intel and Freescale using either the CompactPCI or VPX architectures. Operating system support includes Linux, VxWorks or Windows. CRS products are available in a wide range of slot configurations and cooling options.
