25 add-on module variants
Acromag introduced the ARCX1100 embedded modular computer system. Connection to the CAN network is possible using an extension slot.
The system provides an electrical and mechanical interface for an industry standard COM Express Type 10 mini (55 mm x 84 mm) CPU module. As an option the quad-core (1,6‑GHz and 2-GHz) Intel Atom E3950 CPU with a 4-GiB RAM is available. Peripherals include USB, video and audio ports, as well as Sata data storage connectors. The platform features four expansion slots for Acropack I/O modules (or mini PCIe modules) used for signal processing, communication, and control functions. More than 25 Acropack modules are available, e.g. for CAN, A/D conversion, discrete I/Os, EIA‑232, EIA‑485, MIL‑STD‑1553, Gigabit Ethernet, and other functions. Third-party mPCIe modules are also supported for use in the Acropack slots. The modules are added via down-facing 100‑pin connector that routes the I/O signals through a carrier card to its integrated external connectors. Therefore, internal cables and metalwork modifications are eliminated. Carrier cards for rack-mount, field-deployable, industrial chassis, desktop, and small mezzanine computing platforms may be combined. Available software tools support embedded applications running on Linux, Windows, or Vxworks operating systems.
Overall size with an integrated removable SSD (solid state drive) bay is 193 mm x 193 mm x 83 mm. The system weights 2,06 kg. Fanless, extended temperature operation from -40 °C to +71 °C is supported. Power is sourced from a 10‑VDC to 36‑VDC supply. A water-resistant connector cover is also available to seal and secure the cabling. The rugged device is engineered to withstand 50 g shock and 5 g vibration. Designed for defense, industrial, and mobile embedded computing systems, the computer is suited for test, measurement, data acquisition, control, communication, avionics, simulation, and signal processing applications.
Founded in 1957, the company offers embedded computing and I/O solutions including general purpose I/O boards, single-board computers, FPGA modules, embedded computers, COM Express products, mezzanveev modules, wiring accessories, and software. Industries served include military, aerospace, manufacturing, transportation, utilities, and scientific research laboratories.
