Most rugged Intel 9th Generation Fanless Solution built in IP67 Housing
With the MILCOTS-46, MPL presents a most modern rugged and fanless embedded computer based on the 9th. generation Intel processor.
The design was developed with the goal to meet the MIL-STD-810 as well as parts of the DO160 specifications. The engineering
approach has been taken very different to most rugged solution in the market.
The internal wiring has been eliminated as much as possible. The D38999 MIL connectors are soldered on special MPL designed
Star Flex PCBs. The EMI protection in each interface is integrated directly the connector on the PCBs. This will give best
EMI efficiency. To interface to the standard embedded CPU board from MPL, a mating interface board (ICC) has been designed.
The flex part of the connector PCB is connected to the ICC which is interfacing cable free directly to the CPU board. With
this concept MPL is able to meet basically any standard in the rugged computing environment. If required or desired, the
boards can be coated and bonded to increase the robustness even further.
What are the technical cornerstones of this solution?
The heart of the system is a i7 CPU soldered on board. For best heat dissipation, the CPU is conductive cooled without the need of a heat-pipe.
The MILCOTS-46 comes with interfaces like DVI-D, USB 2.0, GPIOs, serial lines, dual LAN, and a wide power input (10-36VDC). Additional
expansions can be done over the internal expansion interfaces such as mPCIe, m.2, or PCIe/104, WLAN, LTE, GPIOs, CAN, 1553... These
expansions can be done easy and quickly be integrated into the system. This makes the solution flexible and cost efficient customizable.
As mass storage, SATA, mSATA, or m.2 can be chosen.
The selected connectors in this solution are:
||TVP02RW-9-35PN ( 6-pin )
||TVP02RW-17-35SN ( 55-pin )
||TVP02RW-15-35SN ( 37-pin )
||TVP02RW-15-35SA ( 37-pin )
This MILCOTS-46 can be put into various standby mode levels (even below 95 mW) and can also be started with Wake-on-LAN (WOL). The
operational power consumption is between 5 and 65W and the power consumption level can be limited. This enables the use for power
savings as well as for power hungry applications.
The MILCOTS-46 is 100% engineered & manufactured by MPL AG in Switzerland. All MPL products are designed for long-term availability
and will be available for at least 10 years. MPL's own component stock guarantees repairs for up to 20 years. Extended temperature
ranges can be fulfilled and are tested in MPL's own climatic chambers according customer's request.
