The MILCOTS-4x has been designed to withstand any harsh environments and extreme temperature conditions. The special rugged design, combined with the best industrial-grade components, offer high reliability and long-term performance.


SKU: MILCOTS-4X Category:

The MILCOTS-4x Mission Computer was developed with the target to meet the MIL-STD-810 as well as parts of the DO-160 specifications. The solution is installed in a compact IP67 housing with a total of four MIL connectors.

The engineering approach has been taken very different to most rugged solution in the market. The internal wiring has been eliminated as much as possible. The D38999 MIL connectors are soldered on special MPL designed Star Flex PCBs. The EMI protection in each interface is integrated directly the connector on the PCBs. This will give best EMI efficiency.

To interface to the standard embedded CPU board from MPL, a mating interface board (ICC) has been designed. The flex part of the connector PCB is connected to the ICC which is interfacing cable free directly to the CPU board. With this concept MPL is able to meet basically any standard in the rugged computing environment. If required, the boards can be coated and bonded to increase the robustness even further.

The MILCOTS-4x comes with interfaces like DVI-D, USB 2.0, GPIOs, serial lines, dual LAN, and a wide power input. Additional expansions can be done over the internal expansion interfaces such as mPCIe, m.2, or PCIe/104, These expansions can be done easy and quickly be integrated into the system. This makes the solution flexible and cost efficient customizable.
