MEN offers a full range of 3U and 6U CompactPCI® single-board computers on different performance levels based on Intel® and PowerPC® architectures for rugged industrial and embedded applications.
Features of MEN Intel® based 3U and 6U CompactPCI Single Board Computers:
In addition to state-of-the-art PC functionality, including multi-core technology, all CPU boards feature industrial functions such as real-time clock, or watchdogs for temperature and voltage control.
Memory and mass storage configuration possibilities include standard DRAM system memory plus non-volatile SRAM or FRAM, CompactFlash®, NAND Flash and onboard hard disks for program storage.
Many cards also include mezzanine slots for flexible and individual extension by further I/O.
A growing number of boards are equipped with FPGAs for implementation of further application-specific functions. MEN is also gearing up CompactPCI® itself for the future, through the new CompactPCI® Serial standard.
MEN solutions are completed by a huge number of industrial I/O boards based on M-Module™, PMC, XMC and PC-MIP® ANSI/IEC standard mezzanines. Available functions extend from analog and binary I/Os to instrument devices up to fieldbus, network and graphics.
Complete CompactPCI® systems are delivered individually configured, wired and tested on the basis of Schroff® mechanics and backplanes. Some boards are even prepared for busless operation, so that MEN can provide a myriad of CompactPCI®-based solutions, from larger blade servers to UMPC.
Software support comprises BSPs and driver packages for Windows®, Linux and several popular real-time operating systems.
MEN CompactPCI® boards are designed to work also in rugged environments - qualified or screened regarding shock, vibration, drop, resonance, humidity, chemicals, and up to -40 to +85°C operating temperature.
MEN boards have a long-term availability of minimum 5 up to 10 years (and longer according to individual agreements) depending on the components used.
The rugged CompactPCI® products from MEN are often used in railway and transportation applications, e.g. for passenger information systems, or WTB or MVB solutions for vehicle networking, as well as for mission-critical industrial systems.
