ADLINK Technology introduces the first Extreme Rugged™ system to feature Core™2 Duo CPU

ADLINK Technology Inc. (TAIEX: 6166) a leading supplier of embedded computers, today announced availability of the industry's first Extreme Rugged™ system based on the Intel® Core™2 Duo processor. The Ampro by ADLINK™ RuffSystem™ 840 integrates a dual-core processor, RAM, graphics, networking, and PCI Express® expansion in an Extreme Rugged™ enclosure that operates from -40 to +75 degrees Celsius. It is designed for ruggedness and reliability in mission critical computer applications such as military, transportation monitoring and control systems, aviation, and other harsh environments.

"With its high level of integration, performance, reliability, and ruggedness, the RuffSystem™ 840 demonstrates leadership in extreme rugged computing," said Jeff Munch, CTO. "Our customers are excited about the new rugged embedded system for use in a wide range of applications, such as military multifunction control including C4ISR, mobile vehicle positioning, navigation, rugged data acquisition, and imaging devices."

Designed from the start for extreme rugged environments, RuffSystem™ 840 provides the lowest Total-Cost-of-Ownership (TCO) while improving time-to-market by integrating rugged designed boards and validating the complete system, saving customer efforts and resources in trial and error integration and validation. The RuffSystem™ 840 showcases the Intel® Core™2 Duo L7500 1.66GHz 45nm processor with support for 4MB of on-chip L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB (front side bus), and two SODIMM sockets for up to 4GB of DDR2 RAM. The board's built-in graphics engine utilizes Intel's GMA X3100 with up to 384MB of 64-bit video RAM (DVMT4.0), and can drive CRTs, flat panels, and wide screen digital TVs at resolutions of up to 2048x1536 including 1920x1080 at 85Hz (HDTV). An onboard video encoder adds TV-out capabilities such as HDTV (420p, 720p, and 1080i), Component, and S-Video for customized solutions.

The highly-integrated RuffSystem™ 840 also packs a broad range of I/O, including two gigabit Ethernet ports, four USB 2.0 channels, VGA, stereo audio, 4 serial ports (2 supporting RS232/422/485), parallel port, and one SATA II interface. The system also provides flexible expansion via CompactFlash® socket, Mini PCI Express® Card and Mini PCI slot. To meet the needs of military applications, a version of the RuffSystem™ 840 with MIL-STD-D38999 connectors, the MilSystem™ 840, will be available in Q4 of 2009. Both systems are designed to meet MIL-STD-810; support high shock, vibration, and humidity; and have an extended operating temperature range of -40°C to 75°C. The RuffSystem™ 840 is available at competitive prices and supports a full range of popular embedded and desktop operating systems, including Ubuntu 8.04 LTS and Windows® XP Professional.
