Parvus Introduces Sandy / Ivy Bridge Core i7 Mission Computer Subsystem for Tactical Military & Aerospace Apps

DuraCOR 80-40 Minimizes SWaP for Aircraft / Vehicles With Modular Chassis Supporting Combined Mission Computing & Networking Appliance Solutions

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Aug 7, 2012) - (Booth #2157 AUVSI Unmanned Systems Expo) - Eurotech subsidiary Parvus announces the DuraCOR 80-40, a rugged Commercial-Off the Shelf (COTS) tactical mission computer subsystem based on the high performance Intel Core i7 Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors with a high-speed, stackable PCI-Express bus (PCIe/104) architecture for I/O card expansion. Optimally designed for Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP)-sensitive mobile, airborne, ground, manned or unmanned vehicle applications, the DuraCOR 80-40 combines powerful graphics and multi-core processing with ultra-reliable mechanical robustness and modular I/O expansion for extreme environmental and EMI performance per MIL-STD-810G (thermal, shock, vibration, dust, water, humidity) and MIL-STD-461F.

Delivering new capabilities for C4ISR command & control, image processing and surveillance requirements, the DuraCOR 80-40 features modular interlocking chassis segments with pre-installed MIL-DTL-38999 connectors and an internal power/control bus to ease the integration of application-specific PCIe/104 or PCI/104-Express I/O cards and meet high-speed mission payload I/O requirements. The unit supports factory integration of the Cisco IOS-managed DuraMAR 5915 router and/or application I/O cards into a single appliance combination of computer + router + switch + application I/O. Parvus application engineering services are offered for pre-integrated I/O cards and semi-customized configurations.
