MEN Micro Inc., a world-renowned provider of embedded computing and I/O solutions for demanding industrial, mobile and harsh environment applications, has introduced a new, rugged 3U CompactPCI (cPCI) family consisting of two single board computers (SBCs) and a rack that provide reliable performance in temperatures as extreme as -40°C and +85°C.

In addition to the standard, convection-cooled F50P SBC, the new line includes the conduction-cooled F50C that easily fits into the new conduction-cooled rack (Model # 0701-0054). The new rack accommodates readily available, less costly 3U cards designed for ventilated systems, when mounted within conduction-cooled adapter frames.

Both the F50P and F50C SBCs offer the choice of either powerful MPC8548 and MPC8543 PowerPC processors running at speeds up to 1.5 GHz as well as up to 2 MB of SDRAM, 2 MB non-volatile SRAM, 128 K non-volatile FRAM and up to 16 GB of Flash solid state disk storage.

Each board provides versatile front- and rear-connection I/O options including a minimum of four USB ports, up to three 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet channels and up to two SATA ports. Additional FPGA-controlled I/O, a standard on conduction-cooled models and optional on convection-cooled models, provides the extreme flexibility of up to 62 additional I/O lines for user-defined functions in application-specific needs such as graphics, touch screens, serial interfaces, fieldbus controllers and binary I/O.

Both SBC styles, which feature soldered components to withstand shock and vibration, are designed for the added protection of an optional conformal coating. Each offers reliable system expansion using the full cPCI interface, or can be used as a busless stand-alone board with power supplied from the backplane. All versions run popular Linux, VxWorks, QNX, INTEGRITY and OS-9 operating system software.

Convection-cooled SBCs are fitted with tailor-made heat sinks necessary for their environmental requirements – up to +85°C. When integrated into dedicated CCA (circuit card assembly) frames, they become conduction-cooled (F50C series) boards, available for standalone use up to +85°C or for installation in the new conduction-cooled rack. This frame design maintains 20% to 30% more usable card space than more costly card designs conforming to VITA 30.1.

The conduction-cooled cPCI rack is an extremely robust, heat-dissipating enclosure designed for use in environments from -40°C to +85°C (-40°F to +185°F). It is IP-65 compliant, hermetically sealed against environmental impacts and uses wedge locks and MIL-C-38999 connectors to offer excellent vibration and shock resistance.

The 200 mm x 350 mm x 145 mm unit is equipped with three 3U cPCI slots for one CPU board with a side card and one I/O board, as well as a PSU slot with an H15 connector. It accommodates both front and rear I/O wiring of boards installed within the enclosure.

Other MEN Micro 3U cPCI boards, from the F14 (Celeron M) to the power-saving F18 (Core 2 Duo) boards, are also adaptable with CCA frames as an affordable way to implement standard boards within the new conduction-cooled rack unit.

Pricing starts at $1,637 for the F50C and $2,322 for the F50P. The conduction-cooled rack is $5,473. Delivery is six weeks ARO for all products.
