Discover our range of technologies

Embedded_systems_avionics_TI

Avionics

Highly flexible avionics I/O computers are the ideal fit for a wide range of applications, with the latest processing, robust security features, and superior performance. These rugged, conduction-cooled, COTS devices combine a powerful computer processor, multi-protocol databus interfaces (MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, ARINC 717, ARINC 708), Ethernet, USB, serial, discrete I/O, and other I/O in a small, lightweight package.

They deliver outstanding performance on the ground and in the air and are routinely deployed on  helicopter, fixed-wing, ground mobile, and marine platforms.

Embedded_systems_rugged_TI

Rugged

A wide range of open-standard configurable rugged COTS computer systems enabling you to combine our smart function modules, boards, power supplies and software into the rugged chassis of choice.

Add your unique application and deliver a system that meets your specific requirements quickly and with little or no NRE. These systems can be configured with or without an SBC and are designed to operate reliably in extreme temperature, shock, vibration (MIL-STD-810), EMI environments, waterproof (IP67), and if required EN-50155 rail certified platforms.

Rugged embedded computers offer great flexibility to meet ever-changing requirements for long-term applications with customisable-off-the-shelf (COTS) design. AcroPack®, Industry Pack, PMC, XMC, Mini PCIe, M.2 and mSATA slots allow the addition of specialised I/O, storage, and FPGA modules. Optional removable solid-state drives allow large amounts of data storage plus quick security access. These rugged, small form factor computers are designed for a variety of extreme rugged military, aerospace and transportation applications.

Embedded_systems_fanless_TI

Fanless IPC

Fanless embedded computers enhance the responsiveness and durability of edge AI and edge computing applications. Designed to perform and to last, our fanless embedded computers enable timely data-driven decision making at the edge, improving efficiency, productivity and security enhancement across industries.

The applications of fanless embedded computers include accelerated compute-intensive, high-resolution medical imaging for faster diagnosis, defect detection and classification for quality assurance, facial recognition at entry points for access control, worker movement tracking for hazard prevention and control and many more.

Offered with a range of CPU and expansion options, these flexible systems offer a robust long lifecycle solution to ensure reliable 24/7 operation.

 Embedded_systems_gateway_TI

SFF-Gateway

Our range of IoT gateway platforms feature seamless edge-to-cloud connections. IoT gateway platforms offer secure and scalable computing and support fieldbus interface and superior Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity, enabling reliable edge-to-cloud connection, data aggregation, filtering, and data transmission with confidence.

A small and compact design, easy integration, along with a fanless feature increases reliability to ensure remote applications perform at their best with little or no downtime.

Embedded_systems_AIoT_TI

AIoT

A range of deep learning enhanced by NVIDIA based GPGPU heterogeneous computing platforms. Using a range of NVIDIA GPGPU chips from Jetson to Xavier, these servers and fanless solutions allow easy deployment of inference solutions at the edge.

Machine learning, AI industrial vision, recognition and fault detection are all areas where these solutions offer industry-leading robust platforms to suit all performance requirements.

Embedded_systems_robotics_TI

Robotics

We provide a selection of embedded robotics solutions to meet the needs of now and in the future. The automated guided vehicle (AGV) market has become almost saturated but is now stagnated due to the difficulty of developing products for new applications.

The next generation of AGV systems need to be smarter and have more flexibility. Autonomous mobile robots (AMR) will become prevalent in several vertical markets such as logistics, medical, agriculture and mining. As labour costs increase, more swarm robotic systems will be developed and deployed to perform repeated tasks.

Embedded_systems_HPC_TI

GPGPU-HPC

Together with our strategic partners, we offer a range of GPGPU based High Performance Compute (HPC) platforms. Utilising the latest PCIe technologies, our solutions include flexible Xeon based multi GPGPU systems, ideal for machine learning and AI training, inference requirements. Our PICMG/PIC-SIG certified PCIe expansion systems provide up to 16 double width slots across one or multiple hosts. All of our products offer robust edge optimised high capacity expansion, with the flexibility of adding flash storage or GPGU’s in removable canisters. These products are ideal for high performance computing applications where performance and reliability are mandated.

Our market leading products are scalable to true super computers with up to 14 petaflops of computing performance available in rack mount multi node (8) clusters.

This portfolio is suited to both commercial and rugged applications, with the flexibility to deploy AI with consolidated training, inference, and analytics in a unified solution in both datacentres and the harshest of environments.

Our strategic partners also offer custom and pre-configured solutions backed by years of industry leading experience.

Embedded_systems_panelpc_TI

Panel PC

Our industry-leading industrial panel computers are rugged easy to deploy COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) computing systems. We offer a full range of IP69K, IP65, and open frame solutions. The range provides a wide range of processor performance with 7”,10.1”,12.1”,15",15.6” , 17”,18”, 19”,  21.5" and 23.8" panel sizes to best suit versatile industrial and manufacturing applications, making these platforms the ideal solution in food and beverage, pharmaceutical, medical and automotive applications.

Our panel PC modules are designed to be durable and extremely reliable, even under critical environmental conditions. Features of the panel PC design include HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Testing), long life chipsets and TFT displays offering 5-15 year life cycles.
