Rugged computing is a growing field, with applications in military, aerospace, and government products, industrial automation, and transportation. These applications require embedded solutions that can withstand extreme temperatures, shock and vibration, and other harsh conditions.
This Embedded Innovator article shows how the industrial-temperature Intel Atom processors meet the needs of these applications. These new processors enable rugged modules that combine small size, low power, and high performance. With rugged modules like the RadiSys Procelerant CEZ5XL, developers can keep costs and schedules under control while avoiding the drawbacks of proprietary technology.
