Pre-Qualified Multi-Mission Rugged Computer

The ONYX from Ecrin Systems is based on leading edge multi-core Intel® Core™ i7 3rd and 4th Gen processing capabilities to support a wide variety of mission requirements.

ONYX is based on a modular mezzanine concept that offers flexibility and Long Life Management with revision control. It also supports embedded image processing thanks to GPGPU features that specifically target high-end video analog, HD-SDI digital and broadcast SMPTE inputs and outputs with overlay, augmented reality, H.264 AVC compression and EAS-NI encryption. Long life AMD E6760 and new E8860 GPGPU offer up to 768 GFLOPS parallel computing engine.

Pre-Qualified MIL-STD-810/461/1275/DO-160 and in a lightweight, conduction cooled chassis the ONYX is an ideal choice for space constrained applications and harsh environmental conditions.
