Parvus DuraCOR 810

Parvus DuraCOR 810

MIL-STD-810 COTS Processor Platform with Mobile Pentium

The Parvus® DuraCOR® 810 is a rugged military-grade processor system designed for high reliability applications requiring MIL-STD-810 environmental compliance with extreme temperatures, shock/vibration, and ingress. Mechanically designed with considerations for dust exposure, water immersion, EMI/EMC susceptibility/emissions, corrosion resistance, power protection, and system mobility, this rugged field-ready mission computer builds on years of experience by Curtis-Wright in developing, qualifying and deploying similar subsystems in harsh civil and military ground vehicle and aerospace installations.

This high-performance Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) tactical subsystem integrates a rugged low-power 1.4GHz Pentium-M PC/104-Plus Single Board Computer (equivalent to a 2.8GHz Pentium 4) together with a MIL-STD-704/1275 compliant power supply securely mounted in an aluminum PC/104 card cage. Up to six (6) spare slots are available for PC/104(+) expansion cards. To enable rapid deployment, a CompactFlash solid state disk (SSD) comes ready to boot with Linux or Windows.

Locking MIL-DTL-38999 circular connectors bring out a rugged RJ-45 Ethernet connection, 4x USB ports, 2x RS-232 ports, VGA Video, Keyboard, Mouse, and Audio signals, as well as an expansion connector for up to 79 signals from optional add-on cards. A cable-less internal interconnect scheme is used to ensure high reliability, signal integrity, and ease of customization. The 79-pin connector is conveniently routed to an internal breakout board and headers so that application specific PC/104(+) cards can be easily integrated. A set of five LED indicators on the connector panel displays power and user-defined status outputs. The unit’s rugged aluminium chassis is fully ingress protection (similar to IP67) against dust and water.

Like other Parvus DuraCOR mission computer products, the DuraCOR 810 features a modular, expandable design based on open architecture rugged embedded technologies. This rugged subsystem features electrical/mechanical I/O expansion capabilities that enable rapid subsystem integration of platform-specific I/O interfaces (i.e. MIL-STD-1553 / ARINC 429 interface, Video Encoders/Frame Grabbers, GPS Receivers, discrete I/O, RS-232/422/485 Async Serial Ports, etc.). Well suited for tailoring to specific programs requirements, DuraCOR computers leverage a large ecosystem of rugged PC/104-Plus modules together with Curtiss-Wright’s responsive and cost-competitive application engineering services to deliver Modified COTS (M-COTS) configurations in a few short weeks without a traditional NRE fee.
