Embedded computing

With over 30 years of experience in the embedded computing market, we understand the challenges faced by OEMs, application developers and system integrators. That is why our world-class embedded computing technologies from our strategic partners are supported by an extensive range of services that reduce your time to market and lifetime project costs, whilst guiding you through the entirety of your project lifecycle. 

Dealing with multiple suppliers can be a challenging and time-consuming task. Having access to the latest embedded technologies from a single source delivers measurable efficiency savings and ensures that you select the most suitable embedded computing solutions from the widest technology portfolio available.            

If you need a custom or bespoke solution due to the nature of your project, our Embedded Computing Technology Centre offers a range of capabilities and services for when a standard product does not meet your requirements.

Within the Embedded Computing Technology Centre, we can provide design-in support, integrated systems assembly and testing using our strategic and third-party partners. In conjunction with our Interconnect & Cable Assembly Technology Centre and Power Supply Technology Centre, our complete offering includes in-house CAD capability with custom power supply units (PSUs), on-site cable and connector assembly, EMC testing, and documentation and regulatory certifications.


Our technologies

Discover our range of technologies


Single board computers

With many years of experience in supplying and supporting Single Board Computers (SBC’s) for use in embedded computing solutions, our engineering team can support you with  board selection  from technologies including VPX or Open VPX, VME, CompactPCI, PCI, PCIe, PXI, PXIe, COMExpress, PC/104, SMARC, QSeven, ETX, AdvancedTCA, and Motherboards.

Our long standing relationships with strategic partners enable us to offer a diverse range of Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) boards suitable for applications based on VITA, PICMG and Small Form Factor (SFF) standards. These widely adopted open standard architectures ensure interoperability of compatible products that can be upgraded and reused.

We can also help with a wide catalogue of commercial and industrial I/O including:  FPGA, motion control, graphics, networking, avionics and communications.

Embedded systems


We offer a comprehensive portfolio of Commercial-off-the-Shelf systems (COTS). Our embedded computing systems are either supplied configured for a specific application or built ready to accept your choice of operating systems and application software.

These range from compact and reliable expandable fanless Industrial PC (IPC) systems for suitability in hostile environments, through to the latest AIoT enabled technologies suited to video analytics, robotics or SMART factory applications.

For aircraft data interface solutions, we can provide systems supporting the standard avionics protocols including MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC 429/708/717 available for ground based Test and Simulation roles or in a rugged package suitable for use on the ground, vehicles and mobile, as well as fixed or rotary wing aircrafts and UAV’s. We also have a range of extreme rugged systems based on cold plate mounting.

Our range of industrial embedded computers includes Panel PC’s with IP69K protection for extremely demanding applications, as well as versions for medical and industrial control applications. We also offer rail certified systems to EN 50155 covering centralised traffic control, radio block centre, and AI enabled video analytics for passenger information and video surveillance systems.

GPU based computing systems power the technologies for a variety of applications including edge computing, Deep Learning and Robotics. Systems and AI platforms are available utilising the NVIDIA® Jetson® and Quadro® based on MXM modules and PCI Express graphics cards.



Many older technologies have a large worldwide installed base. Supporting these legacy systems is essential for when your time to migrate and the cost of redesigning is prohibitive. Now superseded by new standards, larger memory capacity, or even faster processors, these technologies represent a considerable investment to organisations who feel this still meets their needs.

Our Embedded Computing Technology Centre has a long track record of successfully supporting customers throughout their project lifecycles. With the support of our strategic partners, we can continue to offer older technology types with newer, faster processors or other enhancements in an effort to protect your investment.
