Ruggedized single board computers (SBCs) that bring all of the benefits of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware to safety-certifiable aerospace applications for military and civil markets.

Develop Safety-Certifiable, SWaP-C Optimized Applications

  • Compact 3U VPX SBCs are DO-254 Design Assurance Level (DAL) C- and DO-178C DAL C-certifiable – with a minimal footprint
  • Fully ruggedized design is ideal for conduction-cooled applications
  • High-performance, low-power NXP Power Architecture QorIQ, Intel “Kaby Lake” Xeon, and NXP Layerscape ARM processors meet the most challenging requirements

Move Faster With Lower Costs and Fewer Risks

Avoid costly and time-consuming custom designs with DO-254 DAL C- and DO-178C DAL C-certifiable SBCs:

  • Accelerate and simplify development by taking advantage of design artifact packages that enable successful certification of critical aviation applications
  • Cut costs by using readily available and cost-effective COTS SBCs
  • Reduce risks by using a proven platform from a vendor with more than 25 years of experience supplying safety-certifiable electronics to military and civil aerospace markets.
