SAN DIEGO – Kontron America Inc. in San Diego is introducing the COBALT 901|400 series embedded computing system with MIL-STD-1553 avionics databus connectivity for data-intensive electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR), advanced voice, video, data link processing like Link 16, and the latest situational awareness applications.

Designed as a mission-ready rugged computer for a wide range of military aircraft applications, COBALT with MIL-STD-1553 provides complex serial data bus subsystem support. The rugged small-form-factor system is for high density multi-protocol airborne embedded applications.

The 1553 data bus is increasingly deployed in applications beyond avionics flight control to new intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) designs such as military target acquisition and satellites. Because of this, there is a need to transmit high data rates over existing MIL-STD-1553 bus infrastructures while allowing concurrent operation with 1553 interface speeds in legacy systems.

The COBALT 901|400 series embedded computing board with MIL-STD 1553 builds on the capabilities of Kontron's basic COBALT 901 and adds an L2 Ethernet switch and integrated MIL-STD-1553A/B interface with two dual-redundant channels.

Based on its hardened COM Express Type 6 module form factor module with a specialized carrier board and integrated 6th Generation Intel Quad-Core Xeon E3-1505L processors, it also features 16 or 32 gigabytes of ECC RAM, and has a removable solid-state drive bay option that supports two RSSDs for a variety of sensor processing uses.
