CHATSWORTH, Calif., April 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Aitech Defense Systems Inc. has developed a new method of providing high performance, application-specific remote I/O management through the use of expansion modules, or "slices," in the new rugged, space-qualified Ai-RIO. Through its modular, small form-factor (SFF) structure, the remote I/O interface unit (RIU) is a system-of-systems that provides a new level of scalable intelligence that meets specific user requirements and adapts to evolving application needs.
- Scalable intelligence through highly integrated module 'slices' that add functionality as needed
- Dual-core P1020 Power PC and rad-tolerant FPGAs for powerful performance in space and defense applications
- Expandable with up to eight inter-networked units in compact form factor
- Different I/O configurations enable flexible design
- 3.75 lbs with extremely low power dissipation of 12 W typical
The Ai-RIO is an extremely high density, low power rugged sub-system that provides exceptional, user-specific functionality. This compact unit occupies very little space in a variety of aerospace, defense and military applications. It is ideally suited for vehicle platform flight control, attitude and navigation controls, servo-valve and thrust vector control (TVC), robotic motor control, video and image processing and storage, data telemetry, platform stabilization, communications and telematics, high speed data recorders, booster and launch propulsion and thruster control, remote sensor and effector monitoring and much more.
Versatile Modularity for Scalable Intelligence
The Ai-RIO is easy expandable, with up to eight units networked together, for unprecedented functionality in a compact space. Added capabilities include I/O, power switching, mass/SD FLASH memory as well as other functionalities.
Offering one of the widest ranges of I/O available in a SFF platform, the remote I/O sub-system includes a Gb Ethernet port with precision time sync IEEE-1588 support, ten RS-422 ports (eight of which are RS-422/485), an additional eight LVDS or RS-422/485 UARTS as well as four SpaceWire ports with LVDS I/O, two CANbus ports and sixteen GPIO in two blocks of eight.
