The Acromag ARCX1100 is SFF Embedded Computer System.  Firstly, this rugged small form factor computer is ideal for Defence and Industrial Applications.  With a real focus on signal processing, communication and control functions.  Which is a combination of a carrier card which hosts COM Express Type 10 CPU plus a mix of AcroPack I/O Modules to support those functions.

Secondly, the front ports of SFF Embedded Computer System offer easy access to Gigabit Ethernet, USB, Video and COM Signals.  Plus the ARCX1100 aligns itself as the perfect portable communication system.  This is because it has the ability to add A/D, D/A, discrete I/O, RS-232, RS-485, CAN bus, Ethernet, FPGA, MIL-STD-1553 and other signal interfaces.

The ability to eliminate internal cables between the I/O Modules is another highlight.  This achieved by using the AcroPack I/O Modules which are a rugged alternative to mini PCIe.  There are more than 25 different varieties of AcroPack Models to meet your I/O requirements.

Some typical deployable systems applications include: vetronics, C4ISR, payload management and command and control for drones and robotics.
