Concurrent unveils rugged board

Embedded computer products Concurrent Technologies has launched its latest single board computer designed for use in rugged environments


Colchester-based embedded computer products Concurrent Technologies has launched its latest single board computer, the TP 402/351-RC, specially designed for use in rugged environments.



This 3U CompactPCI board uses the latest dual-core processors from Intel and is conduction-cooled for use in very harsh operating environments. As such, it is well suited for applications within the defence, aerospace, security, transportation, industrial-control and telemetry sectors.



In addition, this product is available as a ruggedised air-cooled version as well as in an extended temperature range version. The product is also capable of operating at high altitudes and can sustain very high shock and vibration levels.



Part of the Concurrent Technology’s strategy has been to design and produce these types of rugged computer products, and this board is the first product resulting from this strategy.



Glen Fawcett, Managing Director, said: ‘Designing and manufacturing computer products for use in extremely demanding applications is a highly specialised field and one in which we now clearly have wide ranging skills. A principle management aim is to capture the widest possible audience for our products. The type of technological innovation that has been applied in this product demonstrates that our aims are being fulfilled.’
