Bosch Selects SIE Computing Solutions to Custom-Design New Chassis and Backplane for the ADAM-M Compact Intercom Matrix Frame

Supports Next Generation Intercom Technologies for High-Speed, Sophisticated Applications and Data-Intensive Communications

BROCKTON, MA--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) -  SIE Computing Solutions Inc., a provider of rugged electronic systems for performance-critical embedded computing platforms deployed in harsh environments, today announced that RTS Intercom Systems, part of the Bosch Group, chose SIE as its custom engineering partner in the design of the new ADAM-M compact intercom matrix frame. RTS selected SIE to engineer a custom chassis, based on the design of the company's proven 545 Series enclosure, and custom backplane design. 

The ADAM-M is designed to support the next generation of intercom technologies for high-speed, sophisticated applications such as headset networks for professional sporting events, on-location live broadcasts, and other data-intensive communications. The backplane architecture supports higher performance I/O, and is fully capable of supporting 1,000+ time slots for integration into full ADAM-based systems. The innovative front panel of the ADAM-M chassis is also designed to provide system status at-a-glance, including card activity, power status, and cooling function.

"RTS has been working with SIE for over 10 years and we chose them for the ADAM-M project simply because we trust that they will get the job done right," said Ralph Strader, president of RTS Intercom Systems. "We value SIE's extensive engineering expertise, particularly in the field of backplane design, and the fact that its top-notch engineering team is able to understand our technology and seamlessly bring the whole system together, even with an impressive time to market goal that could not have been met if we were to manufacture all of the components internally."

SIE Computing Solutions is a leader in the engineering, design and manufacturing of custom and standard products which support open architecture bus structures such as VME, VXS, VPX, CompactPCI, AdvancedTCA and MicroTCA, as well as other switch fabric technologies. Because of its specific and focused technical capabilities and commitment to seamless integration with project goals and custom requirements, SIE Computing Solutions has been the trusted outsourcing supplier for high-performance embedded computing products and solutions since 1971. SIE Computing Solutions is also a vertically integrated company with full-service capabilities that address the complex needs of every customer through a wide range of standard products or custom-designed new products.

"SIE Computing Solutions' unique combination of mechanical, electrical, and system design expertise is gleaned from working with some of the most performance-critical and demanding embedded computing applications in the world," said Chris Boutilier, president and CEO of SIE Computing Solutions. "We welcome the opportunity to work as an extension of the engineering teams of industry leaders such as RTS Intercom Systems and Bosch, and are proud to lead the collaborative design efforts that create some of the most innovative, high-performing computing systems on the market today."
