F-series computing platform designed to meet SWaP requirements in harsh environments
Elma Electronic’s S50F computing platform was designed with an Intel Corei7 processor at its foundation. The F-Series of the S50F-Intel Gen 4 Haswell general computing platform is expandable both in terms of I/O options and overall system size for enhanced performance while meeting size, weight, and power requirements in harsh environments. The platform’s I/O modules may be added or removed to keep pace with evolving system requirements. Additionally, the system comes in three basic size profiles to offer the correct starting point for most users.
The S50F series features Intel Haswell, 4th-gen quad or dual core processor; 8-series QM87 PCH chipset; and Intel high-performance HD4600 graphics engine. It comes with as much as 8 GB DDR3; has type 1 bottom-stacking PCIe/104 with Gen 2 PCIe x1 Lanes and Gen 3 PEG x16; 2x SATA 600 ports with RAID; 2x Gigabit Ethernet ports; 2x RS232 COM ports; and 13x USB 2.0 total/2x USB 3.0, backward and USB 2.0 compatible. The platform also has onboard VGA/DisplayPort, LVDS, HDMI/DVI, eDP interfaces; discrete 16-bit GPIO port; 7.1 HD audio with SPDIF I/O); mini PCIe/mSATA socket for onboard WiFi, CANBus, or additional storage; and a small-footprint aluminum box designed to meet MIL-STD-810F environmental standards.
