The product is expected to appeal to both existing and new customers within the defence market as well as the aerospace and transportation markets.


Initial shipments of air-cooled variants will be followed by rugged conduction-cooled modules, once the necessary qualifications are complete, ensuring this product will appeal to applications within both benign and harsh environments.

“We are excited to introduce our first new generation Intel® Xeon® processor based board. We are committed to delivering high quality embedded computers utilising the latest processors from Intel to advance our Size, Weight and Power (SWAP) propositions.
