DO-178C & DO-254 DAL A Certifiable 3U OpenVPX Zynq® UltraScale+™ Quad Arm® Cortex®-A53 Rugged, Cybersecure & Anti-Tamper Single Board Computer

BOHEMIA, NY – April 2021 -- North Atlantic Industries, Inc. (NAI), a leading supplier of embedded computing solutions and power supplies, introduces the 68ARM2 rugged 3U OpenVPX™ single board computer. The Configurable Open Systems Architecture™ (COSA®) enabled 68ARM2 offers the greatest I/O, communications and processing density along with the greatest flexibility, adaptability and modularity in the industry.

The 68ARM2 features the Xilinx Zynq® UltraScale+ MPSoC with Quad ARM® Cortex®-A53 processing technology for customer software applications. It is configured with 8 GB DDR4 SDRAM w/ ECC, 32 GB SATA II NAND Flash and offers integrated VITA 46.11 Tier-2 compatible IPMC for OpenVPX chassis manager interface support. A PCIe interface is supported to one function slot allowing addition Gig-E portion options. A SATA II interface is also available to one function slot allowing up to 256 GB expansion options.

Xilinx® PetaLinux, Wind River VxWorks 7.x, VxWorks HVP or DDC-I Deos RTOS support continues NAI’s commitment of safety critical DO-178C and DO-254 DAL A certifiable solutions. The 68ARM2 is designed to meet the FIPS 140-3 Security Level 3 requirements for cryptographic modules. Long-term & maintenance-free battery-backed RAM for crypto-key storage and hardware perimeter intrusion sensors provides immediate tamper detect and self-sanitize functions.

Smart function modules process all I/O and communications data. Up to three independent customer configurable Analog and Digital I/O, Position, Timing, Measurement/Simulation and Communications smart function modules are supported on a single slot, 3U OpenVPX board. Over 70 pre-integrated smart functions, with dedicated processing, fuel NAI's modular mixand-match architecture. Ideally suited for rugged Mil-Aero applications, the 68ARM2 delivers off-the-shelf solutions that accelerate deployment of SWaP-optimized systems in air, land and sea applications. Offered in commercial, 0°C to +70°C or extended -40°C to +85°C operating temperature ranges. Conduction or Convection cooled versions are available

"The 68ARM2 SBC with Quad Arm® Cortex®-A53 coupled with 68G5 multifunction boards offers customers the greatest configurability in support of DO-178C & DO-254 DAL A certifiable processing and IO system solutions” states Lino Massafra, VP of Sales and Marketing. "Data Concentrator, Remote Interface, Actuator Interface and Signal Interface units are ideal systems for the 68ARM2.”
