RuffSystem 735

Adlink Technology is rolling out the RuffSystem 735 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.

The boards have no moving parts and are designed from the ground up for use in harsh environments. The RuffSystem 735 features a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor N270, up to 2Gbyte of DDR2 RAM, and Intel GMA 950 graphics core supporting display resolutions of up to 2048x1536 at 75Hz.

A range of I/O includes one Gigabit and one Fast Ethernet port (dual GbE in Q3), four USB 2.0 ports, stereo audio, four serial ports (two supporting RS232/422/485), and parallel port. Storage is provided by internal conventional or solid-state drive via serial ATA interface and CompactFlash socket. The system also provides flexible expansion with PCIe mini card slot and PC/104-Plus interface.

The Ampro by Adlink MilSystem 735, which will be available in Q2, 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 & vibration, and operate at full speed in an extended operating temperature range of -40C to 75C. They come with Ubuntu Linux 8.04 LTS or Windows XP Professional preinstalled. The systems also support a full range of additional embedded and desktop OS, including VxWorks.
