Webinar: Rugged Computer-On-Modules
Using a COM has many benefits. Because they are so compact and rugged, COM solutions are especially well suited for demanding avionic applications, but also for infotainment solutions, medical engineering, industrial automation, railway applications and mobile applications in general.
Computer-On-Modules (COM), or System-On-Modules (SOM), are complete computers on a plug-on module. Configuring the I/O on an individual carrier board tailors the functionality to the application, saves costs and shortens time-to-market.
ESMexpress® and ESMini™ are examples of computer-on-module designs. Even complex CPUs, including those with multi-core technology, can be realized on a very compact, highly-integrated computer-on-module. Their robust mechanics and advanced cooling facilities allow them to be used also in the most severe environments.

The new CompactPCI® Serial standard gears up CompactPCI® for the future and is the ideal basis to build solutions for harsh environments and mission-critical applications.
Modular and maintenance-friendly 19" mechanics, hot-swappability, multi-processing, conductive cooling, long-term availability and extended temperature range are only a few of the benefits of CompactPCI® Serial....
Robust and ruggedized, industrial computers can take many challenges.
In safety-critical environments, requirements go even beyond the usual demands. At the same time, safety becomes an issue in computing in more and more areas.
Safety-critical electronic systems, found mostly in medical equipment, airplanes, trains and nuclear power stations, are systems that, when failure happens, the loss of life, substantial financial damage or severe harm to the environment will likely occur. Protecting these systems and ensuring that they operate effectively, means taking the steps during initial development, to incorporate the appropriate security level, as well as to employ specific measures that ensure the system's redundancy in the event of a failure.
This webinar explains the planning and development of these systems as well as the incorporation of redundancy schemes into safety-critical applications....
