Fully Rugged Turn-Key Avionic MIL-STD-1553 Tablet

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/16/13 -- AMREL, the premier rugged computer supplier, now offers a turn-key fully rugged avionics tablet complete with an integrated MIL-STD-1553 card supplied by Data Device Corporation (DDC). DDC is the world's leading MIL-STD-1553 hardware and software provider. DDC has supplied integration support along with their 1553 Mini-PCIe card to help design this turn-key solution.

"This is a readily available off-the-shelf, tablet-based solution for military aircraft," stated Kalvin Chen, AMREL's Director of Technology Marketing. "The ROCKY DK8 tablet, as well as all AMREL platforms, is designed with open platform capability to accommodate enhanced modifications, such as integrating a 1553 card. This feature enables AMREL to provide our clients with a standardized solution that is customized for their needs."

With an easy-to-read 12-inch display screen, this mobile handheld system directly communicates to aircrafts without requiring an intermediate server. Ideal for bus troubleshooting, diagnostic systems, data loading, and applications requiring portable handheld solutions, this customized ROCKY DK8 tablet can serve a variety of avionic needs. The DK8 tablet is independently certified for military standards of ruggedness, which minimizes downtimes and lost data due to accidents and breakage.

This closed case solution feeds power, Ethernet data, and 2-channel 1553 data through a 35-pin MIL-DTL-38999 military connector. Compact, small-footprint, single solution devices are an AMREL specialty, so no peripheral devices are necessary.

While AMREL provided the fully rugged platform, DDC supplied the MIL-STD-1553 Mini-PCIe card (BU-67114Hx). DDC is well-known for providing the smallest complete MIL-STD-1553 high-performance solutions in the world.

"DDC and AMREL have a lot in common," declared Kalvin. "We both supply products that are fully compliant with military standards, while simultaneously offering a very small footprint with very high performance and reliability."

AMREL platforms are designed for easy modification and integration. Upon customer request, this avionic solution could be easily configured with many different types of interfaces on any of our fully rugged laptops, tablets, or handheld computers.
