The following companies will be exhibiting at AUVSI's XPONENTIAL 2017 at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas, TX, May 8 – 11, 2017.

Gigabit Ethernet Switch

Techaya (Pardes Hana, Israel) MILTECH 919 is a rugged, 8 port copper, 1 port fiber, military-grade board level Gigabit Ethernet switch with Layer 2 management. The MILTECH 919 is a MIL-STD, fully managed military grade board-level Gigabit switch, offering 8 triple-speed (10/100/1000Mbps) ports + 1 × 100/1000 fiber optic port. With built in board-to-board connectors, it is suitable for adding advanced switching capabilities to any OEM embedded platform with space and weight limitations.

Advanced network features include on-device IPv4 and IPv6 unicast routing between virtual LANS (VLANS), traffic prioritization (QoS), and bandwidth aggregation which can be remotely managed to optimize communications and prioritize critical information traffic such as voice and video. The board measures 107 mm × 48 mm × 5 mm and weighs 52g. Operating temperature range is -40C to +85C, and power is 6-36 VDC, 8W (Typical). Booth #3132

Carrier Boards

Connect Tech (Guelph, Ontario) has announced the release of three new carrier boards — Cogswell, Spacely and Sprocket — for the new NVIDIA® Jetson™ TX2 and existing Jetson TX1 products.

Cogswell is designed for use with Gigabit Ethernet vision cameras (GigE Vision) and includes a total of five Gigabit Ethernet ports, four of which can be used for IEEE 802.3af (PoE) 15.4W power sourcing or two of these ports can be used for IEEE 802.3at (PoE+) 25.5W power sourcing. Additionally, the Cogswell carrier enables HDMI video, CAN, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, USB OTG, Mini-PCIe/mSATA expansion, and two RS- 232 serial ports.

Spacely targets unmanned vehicles and other applications where situational awareness is critical. It enables users to simultaneously capture up to 6 MIPI CSI-2 cameras as well as offering built-in expansion for a GPS/GNSS module. It includes a multi-I/O port specifically designed to enable easy connection to OEM autopilots such as the Pixhawk. Other on-board interconnects include 2× GbE, 1× HDMI, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, USB OTG, as well as miniPCIe and mSATA expansion.

Sprocket is the company's smallest and lowest profile solution. Designed to match the NVIDIA Jetson module form factor, Sprocket's design includes 1x USB OTG, 1x MIPI CSI-2 Input, 2× 3.3V UART, 2× I2C, and 4× GPIO. Booth #2141

PC/104-Compatible SBCs

WinSystems (Arlington, TX) recently introduced its PCM-C418 product series. The next step in low-power, dual-Ethernet PC/104-compatible SBCs, these rugged computers were designed specifically as a ready upgrade path for legacy PC/104 CPUs, particularly WinSystems’ widely adopted PCM-VDX product line. PCM-C418 boards feature the Vortex DX3 System On Chip (SOC), which offers a 32-bit × 86 architecture with dual-core microprocessor, and supports up to 2 GB of RAM.

The PCM-C418 can be used on its own as a densely populated single board computer for rugged environments with a complete mix of I/O features. It offers built-in connectors for a PS/2 mouse and keyboard, VGA, dual Ethernet, four USB 2.0 channels, one parallel (LPT) port, four multimode serial ports, 24 general-purpose I/O (GPIO) lines, 1M of battery-backed SRAM, and a watchdog timer. What's more, its native PC/104 ISA bus enables expanded functionality with full ISA compatibility.

This new series includes a CompactFlash socket and external SATA connector, providing removable solid-state storage for operating systems and applications. In addition, the boards support soldered-down, bootable eMMC devices (optional) for rugged solid-state storage in high-vibration applications. Booth # 3058

LWIR camera

Sierra-Olympic Technologies (Hood River, OR) has introduced the new Viento HD IP67, a full HD 1080p thermal camera with an IP67 environmentally-rated enclosure. The high-definition longwave-infrared (LWIR) imager is fully enclosed in a rugged housing that provides total protection against dust, and protects against the effects of water immersion to depths between 15 cm and 1 meter.

The Viento HD IP67 delivers true 1920 × 1200 pixel resolution utilizing an uncooled vanadium oxide (VOx) sensor with a capacity of over 2.3 million pixels on a 12-micron pixel pitch. The uncooled microbolometer detector also provides long life for the camera system by eliminating the need for a cryocooler that would require periodic replacement or servicing.

Sierra-Olympic's high-def camera system offers HD-SDI, h.264 IP, or 16-bit, full-dynamic-range digital data or digital data with automatic gain control (AGC). The digital acquisition system includes a configured frame grabber for full-frame rate, full bit depth acquisition, and display. The Viento HD camera system includes integrated image enhancement functions and a 24 mm F1.1 athermalized custom-designed optic. It is available with a hard carbon-coated 24 mm fixed focal length lens; custom lenses are also available upon request. Booth #2012

Flat Ethernet Cables

For Ethernet applications that require flexible and lightweight cable designs, Cicoil (Valencia, CA) offers filler-free, Cat 5e and Cat 6A Ethernet Cables. These flexible flat cables don't require cumbersome insulating materials, fillers, talc and tapes. Cicoil's patented extrusion process allows 4 individually shielded 100 Ohm pairs to be placed in a small, flat profile, precisely controlling the spacing of each component, insulation thickness and the overall cable shape. Each pair is separately encased in a solid, one-piece construction, ensuring that they do not rub against each other and wear during a lifetime of 15 million flexing cycles.

The outer jacket is self-healing from small punctures and will not wear, crack or deform due to long term exposure to vibration, sunlight, temperature extremes (-65°C to +165°C), acid, submersion in water, sea ice, steam, coarse sand, flames, radiation, alcohol, mechanical stress, humidity, ozone, UV light, high altitudes, autoclave and many chemicals. Standard “off the shelf” Cat 5e and Cat 6A Cables are available, complete with connectors, in 3 foot, 6 foot and 12 foot lengths. Booth #1549
