Aetina provides industrial-strength AI and GPU modules targeting harsh environments, and our rugged series includes the industry-specific XMC and VPX form factors, enhancing the enormous GPGPU computing and deep-learning procession of embedded systems in rugged marketplace.
By following VITA standards, we provide the widespread adoption form factors to the embedded computing markets, an application area where mezzanine cards are frequently employed. With technologies PCI Express supported, high flexibility of alternative I/O functions and advanced NVIDIA GPU adopted for more sophisticated performance, allowing Aetina Rugged series to be perfect off-the-shelf expansion modules for CUDA and I/O requirements of RADAR, UAV, ECM, and C4ISR.
The lineup is engineered to adopt ruggedization services include extended temperatures (-20°C to +70°C) and extreme temperature (-40°C to +85°C) operation, and as well as conformal coating, that be applied to protect against environmental hazards including dust, moisture, mechanical stress, harsh chemicals, and solder joint corrosion.
Aetina Rugged module series are designed in ENIG (Electroless Nickel Immersion Gold) printed circuit board. It consists of an electroless nickel plating covered with a thin layer of immersion gold, which delivering extra excellent oxidation or corrosion resistance from environmental damage.
To ensure consistent operation and reliable performance under severe temperature variations and extreme environments, we carry out stringent testing exceeding requirements of the IEC 60068 standard. A gauntlet of dynamic temperature burn-in cycles, rigorous start-ups at lowest as -40°C and at highest as +85°C during development as well as individual validation before delivery, contributing to the best sustainability and operability in all kinds of difficult conditions.
To safeguard electronic components from rough environmental hazards, Aetina offers conformal coatings on its graphics cards. The coatings protect against moisture, dust, harsh chemicals, and solder joint corrosion due to contact with air. This industrial grade feature improves reliability and extends product service life.
