Acromag introduced the XCOM-6400 COM Express Module. The Type 6 board is available with either the Intel fourth-generation Core i7 or i5 Haswell CPU. The XCOM-6400 features the Intel 8-Series QM87 PCH chipset (Lynx Point), up to 16GB of high-speed DDR3L, and an Intel integrated graphics processor, Gigabit Ethernet. The module is ideal for defense, aerospace, and industrial applications. Prices start at $1995.
Acromag introduced the APCe8675 carrier card. The APCe8675 enables a PC to communicate with an XMC mezzanine module over a PCI Express (PCIe) bus. The Acromag carrier card is a simple and cost-effective solution for test advanced systems for defense and aerospace applications that will be deployed later on rugged embedded computer platforms such as VME, VPX, or CompactPCI. Pricing for the standard APCe8675 model starts at $700.
Acromag introduced the ACEX4405 carrier card for COM Express modules. The ACEX4405 hosts Type 2 or Type 3 COM Express modules. It features a small footprint, dual ports for Gigabit Ethernet, RS232/422, USB, and mini PCIe slot. The Acromag ACEX4405 is ideal for quick prototype or proof-of-concept designs. The off-the-shelf carrier card can help engineers reduce the time to design a semi-custom COM Express computer. The ACEX4405 is priced at $695.
Acromag introduced the VPX4810 3U VPX carrier cards for interfacing a PMC or XMC module to a VPX computer system. The VPX4810 boards route power and interface bus signals to a plug-in mezzanine module through the VPX card slot connector. The VPX4810 features an 8-lane PCIe bus Gen 2 interface that enables rapid data throughput. The air-cooled model (0 to 70°C range) carrier cards is available for $1600. Conduction-cooled and REDI versions are also available. The Acromag VPX4810 3U VPX carrier cards are ideal for high-performance industrial, defense, scientific research, and telephony systems requiring high-speed I/O.
Acromag introduced the IP570 and IOS-570 MIL-STD 1553 bus modules for interfacing avionics and weapons subsystems to embedded control systems. The IP570 is an Industry Pack ANSI/VITA-4 card that plugs into VME, CompactPCI, and PCI bus mezzanine carrier cards or high-performance single-board computers. IOS-570 is designed for use within Acromag’s I/O Server industrial PC, a small fanless box computer. Both Acromag board features a choice of one or two interface channels. A DDC Micro-ACE device controls the 1553 interface. Extended temperature models support -40 to 85°C operation. Pricing for the 1553 bus modules start at $1695.
The Acromag APMC4110 busless PMC module carrier card enables the use of a PMC module in an independent stand-alone mode. The APMC4110 carrier card powers a PMC module and regulates the PCI bus start-up sequence to prevent a system lock-up by the connection to the local bus. For troubleshooting, a 14-pin Xilinx JTAG connector facilitates boundary scan debugging. Pricing for the Acromag APMC4110 starts at $275. The busless carrier card is ideal for custom computing applications based on a re-configurable FPGA module operating independently of VME, CompactPCI, or other bus-level resources.
Acromag introduced the IP560 and IOS-560 CAN bus modules for interfacing network sensors and actuators to control systems. The IP560 is an Industry Pack ANSI/VITA-4 card that plugs into VME, CompactPCI, and PCI bus mezzanine carrier cards or single-board computers in embedded systems. IOS-560 is designed for use within Acromag’s I/O Server industrial PC, which is a small fanless box computer for mobile computing, machine control, and test applications. Both CAN bus interface modules feature two channels with optional isolation. Each channel has an NXP SJA1000 CAN controller with a TJA1041 transceiver. Extended temperature models support -40 to 85°C operation. Single quantity pricing starts at $500.
The Acromag IOS-7200 I/O Server Industrial PC features an embedded AMD Geode LX800 500MHz CPU, 512MB of DDR400 DRAM, runs Windows Embedded Standard and Linux, VGA graphics, two Ethernet ports, two serial ports, four USB ports, a CompactFlash slot, and audio input/output jacks. An internal 2.5″ PATA hard disk or solid-state drive is available as a user-installed option. The Acromag Model IOS-7200 I/O Server PC is priced at $1695.
