Kontron Cobalt 904 cabin media server selected by Rockwell Collins

Kontron, a global market leader for embedded computing technology (ECT), today announced that Rockwell Collins has selected the COBALT 904 as the media server that will host its new Stage content service, and it will also be integrated with its Venue cabin management and entertainment system.

The powerful, highly-integrated, yet small COBALT 904 Avionics Server offers the latest in processing performance and supports a comprehensive list of interfaces including ARINC 429, USB 2.0, USB 3.0 (for high speed content loading), six (6) GbE ports, HDMI, Avionics Discretes, Maintenance Port , RS485/RS422, and Audio used by commercial airlines and business jets.

“As an Open Certified Platform, we designed the COBALT 904 Avionics Server to help accelerate our customer's time-to-market using the latest in embedded technology” said Jim Vandesteeg, Avionics Business Line Manager at Kontron. “We are thrilled to enhance our established relationship with Rockwell Collins where they can leverage the scalability and development flexibility this platform offers to meet the specific requirements of a diverse range of business jet deployments.”

Kontron's COBALT 904 Avionics Server is specifically designed for the limited physical space, compact and reliable performance needs of the commercial avionics market. Powered by its COM Express® (COMe) Type 6 computer-on-module that delivers Intel® Dual Core i5 performance and a specialized carrier board assembly, the COBALT 904 provides the highly ruggedized features and power-to-performance optimization needed for commercial and business jet deployments. This platform provides not only airborne applications such as HD video streaming, but also enhanced connectivity for crew services or fast content updates via the system's high speed USB 3.0 data transfer capabilities. Certification to DO-160G avionics standard for the COBALT 904 is underway and anticipated to be complete in early 2016.
