HILLSBORO, USA: RadiSys Corp., a leading global provider of application-ready software and hardware platforms, has released its ruggedized Procelerant CEQM57XT COM Express module for deployment in harsh mil/aero and industrial environments.
The CEQM57XT module combines the Intel Core i7 and i5 processors and the Mobile Intel QM57 Express chipset with extended temperature range from -25 to 70 degrees Celsius and ruggedized vibration specifications that are required for many mil/aero and industrial applications such as ruggedized computers/tablets, unmanned vehicles/robots and in-vehicle computers.
By incorporating ruggedness into the product design, RadiSys enables its customers to use the latest technology in harsh environments, saving months of system development time previously dedicated to ensuring that a module can meet their extended temperature or vibration specifications. RadiSys proprietary design and test processes set the standard for COM Express ruggedness compared to simple screening processes employed in the industry.
“RadiSys is pleased to introduce our ruggedized CEQM57XT COM Express extended temperature module on the heels of our commercial temperature module release earlier this year, keeping our ruggedized designs on the same technology curve with the industry,” said Lorraine Orcino, RadiSys COM Express Product Line Manager.
“By taking on the responsibility and risk for extended temperature testing, RadiSys is able to give its customers a fast entry to market. Our extended temperature COM Express modules are rapidly being deployed in mil/aero, transportation and industrial applications as an ideal solution for technology insertions and upgrades.”
The CEQM57XT features the Intel Core i7 2.53 GHz, 2.0 GHz and 1.06 GHz processors and the Intel Core i5 2.4 GHz processor for increased processing performance and a seven-year lifecycle, a key requirement for mil/aero and industrial applications.
RadiSys designs ruggedness into the CEQM57XT by utilizing its proprietary implementation of the Highly Accelerated Life Test (HALT) during the design process to identify and correct product weaknesses prior to production; Highly Accelerated Sample Screen (HASS) is then used during production to continually monitor supplier quality and component robustness. Through rigorous HALT/HASS testing, RadiSys ensures that the product is designed to its extended temperature range limits required by its target markets. If additional humidity ruggedization is required, the CEQM57XT COM Express module is also available with conformal coat Humiseal 1B31 option, providing time and cost savings with a readily available qualified process.
