Military Computing - COM ExpressThere is a quotation about warfare that says “War never changes.” The philosophical idea behind that statement may be correct, but in the realm of technology, it couldn’t be farther from the truth. Military computing is constantly undergoing change. Technological breakthroughs and research into innovative solutions are always on the verge of becoming a reality. In pushing toward new ideas, a nation’s military must utilize the latest advancements in embedded computer modules. The “golden rules “of this type of technology are to create:

  • a space saving module
  • a technically proficient machine, in both processing and graphical power
  • a device with low power consumption

It is a difficult set of boxes to tick, but the Computer on Module Express, or COM Express, standard fills and advances this need.

The application for COM Express boards is not meant to replace standard full size industrial PCs. That form factor must still be relied upon for heavy computing necessary at major operations bases. However, the usual size of a full motherboard prohibits Read the full article →


Embedded Military SystemsTechnology is rapidly and undeniably changing the capabilities and various applied uses of equipment and electronic systems. Trends are shaping the future of the embedded system, which is in ever increasing use in the areas of the military and defense, as well as aerospace. Electronic components are a factor on battlefields and in other military operations, as they provide far more accurate ways to approach and manage high-risk situations.

However, in the event that these devices were to fail in the field due to temperature or shock, critical operations can come to a halt or fail completely, leading to further and more damaging consequences. As such, the need for top-notch embedded military systems is flourishing, and is being met as one of the more challenging aspects of OEM computing.

Trends That Fuel Embedded Military Systems

M220 Rugged 2U Server Embedded Military SystemsThere are several main trends that fuel the ever-increasing market for embedded military systems and boards. One is the need for high-power computing, in a rugged, reliable package.

More and more, there is an need for horsepower in military systems, with a parallel increase in necessity for rugged capabilities, such as wide temperature ratings and drop resistance. The reason for this is Read the full article →
