Aitech A172 MIL & AERO Integrated Systems Rugged Compact PC SFF HPEC


Intel ® Core® i7 Processor

The A172 is a low profile, rugged high performance embedded computer (HPEC) that provides exceptional design flexibility in a low power, high performance computing system.  Developed around a standard Type 6 COM Express module, the A172 features an industry standard pinout and the ability to support multiple processor options for easy system integration as well as cost effective technology insertion upgrades.

Weighing under 5 lbs (2.25 kg) with dimensions of only 10.24″ x 7.09″ x 1.8″ (260 mm x 180 mm x 46 mm), the A172 maximizes SWaP for applications with limited space requirements. 

It also features multiple I/O options that make the rugged, Intel Core i7-based unit ideal for high impact, high performance military applications.  These manned and unmanned robotic ground vehicles (UGV) as well as manned and unmanned fixed- and rotary-wing airborne (UAV) platforms.
