NAI Announces Single-Slot, Half-Size, PCIe I/O & Communication Board

BOHEMIA, NY – April 2017 -- North Atlantic Industries, Inc. (NAI) has launched a new generation of single-slot, half-size, PCle boards that can be configured with up to three intelligent I/O and communication function modules. The 79G5 PCle multifunction I/O and communication board is ideally suited for a wide range of commercial applications with high-density I/O requirements. This includes digital and analog I/O, position control and measurement/simulation and communication interface applications.

The off-the-shelf solution is built on NAI’s Configurable Open System Architecture™ (COSA®), which supports more than 40 different intelligent I/O, communication, measurement and simulation functions. These preexisting, fully-tested functions can be combined quickly and easily in an unlimited number of ways. Each I/O function has dedicated processing, unburdening the system processor from unnecessary data management overhead.

“The NAI Custom-On-Standard-Architecture (COSA) delivers the highest packaging density and greatest flexibility of any multifunction I/O board in the industry,” states Lino Massafra, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at NAI. As a result, the 79G5 PCle multifunction I/O and communication board meets the needs of commercial, military and aerospace applications that require measurements, simulation and communications. The 79G5 has been designed for environments with operating temperature ranges of 0° to 70° C. Background Built-in-Test (BIT) continually checks and reports on the health of each channel.

NAI is a leading independent supplier of embedded computing, Input/Output, communications, measurement, simulation, power and systems products for commercial, industrial and military applications built on a Configurable Open Systems Architecture™ (COSA®). COSA offers the greatest modularity, flexibility, adaptability and configurability in the industry that accelerates our customers’ time-to-mission. COSA supports a Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) that delivers the best of both worlds: custom solutions from COTS components with No NRE. For over 50 years, companies like Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman and Raytheon have leveraged NAI’s capabilities to meet the demanding requirements of a wide range of processing, I/O and communication-centric applications, and do so with uncompromising quality, efficiency and responsiveness.
