Page 1 of 1
A new family of rugged, off-the-shelf systems is designed to reduce the cost and time-to-market of developing solutions for a range of military vehicle platforms including UAVs, manned and unmanned ground vehicles and launch vehicles. The CRS-C2P-3CC1 and CRS-C3P-3CB1 from GE Intelligent Platforms are 2-slot and 3-slot pre-validated, application-ready, CompactPCI-based computer systems. They are available in a wide range of application-specific configurations that can be delivered in a rugged, convection or base plate cooled 3U chassis. These computers are supplied as standard with a Freescale-based single board computer and the VxWorks real-time operating system and feature I/O capabilities including Ethernet, serial, USB, MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC 429 as well as discrete I/O.
The CRS-C2P-3CC1 and CRS-C3P-3CB1 integrate GE Intelligent Platforms boards and modules, drawn from GE’s selection of COTS boards, into open modular systems that are tested and qualified for rugged systems deployment. They are configured with a single board computer featuring a Freescale MPC7448 processor operating at 1.4 GHz, together with 512 Mbytes of RAM and 256 Mbytes of flash memory. The CRS-C2P-3CC1 has dimensions of (H x W x D) 3.96” x 7.15” x 9.03” (excluding connectors) and weighs only 11 pounds; and the CRS-C3P-3CB1 has dimensions of (H x W x D) 5.60” x 4.25” x 8.76” (excluding connectors) and weighs 9 pounds.
