Next generation rack mounted systems highlight the importance of embedded applications

By Nick Flaherty

Embedded system designer Crystal Group has redesigned its rugged rack mount computer system for the latest Intel Xeon Skylake processors, targeting sensor fusion, AI and video processing applications.

The next generation of Crystal Group's rugged rackmount products include a host of robust enhancements including a substantial jump in compute performance, greater scalability, increased security, and even more agility to adapt to changing technologies. The improved capabilities are critical in today's rapid technology transformations.

"Translating evolving technology into direct benefits for our customers is one of our most important responsibilities to the market," says Jim Shaw, Executive Vice President of Engineering at Crystal. "We are taking full advantage of the new Xeon Scalable Processor architecture to build our next generation of rugged rack mount computers. These devices will deliver the most advanced solution, optimised to withstand tough conditions such as shock, vibration, extreme temperature, sand and dust under full CPU load."
The rugged rackmount computers is aimed at a variety of applications requiring high compute capability, reliability and performance in harsh environments including:
  • Artificial intelligence (AI)
  • Autonomous vehicles
  • Communications
  • Monitoring & surveillance
  • Sensor fusion
  • Signal awareness
  • Situation analysis
  • Spectrum analysis
  • Video recording
The boards will be available in the fourth quarter of 2017.
