Sight Systems improves surveillance screen reliabilitiy

Sight Systems : 17 September, 2007  (Application Story)
Sight Systems supplies screens for BAE systems touch-screen monitors for surveillance operations for use by the MoD.
As a preferred supplier and integrator of Axiomtek components, Sight Systems are able to react quickly to the demands of their clients by utilising the continual delivery of new and updated products from the Taiwanese applied computing platform provider. This desire to provide up to the minute solutions for its diverse client base was never more evident than when approached by BAE Systems to update 25 MoD touch screen surveillance systems monitors.

Axiomtek's high performance, cost-effective 3.5-inch embedded computing platform - SBC84602 - was one of the components selected to update the monitors; just two weeks after its UK launch.

The low power embedded board supports VIA Mark CoreFusion 800/533 MHz processor onboard with facilitating silent, fanless operation design. The integrated Graphics features three display output including LVDS, CRT, TTL LCD. Along with native x86 performance and advanced hardware benefits, the embedded single board computer is extremely suitable for embedded and industrial automation applications with small, cost effective LCD display industries. With the STN, DSTN, TFT small size LCD support, Sight Systems quickly identified the SBC84602 as a perfect component for the defence market.

The embedded platform offers full legacy support through ISA (Industry Standard Architecture) and provides usability of up to four COM ports, four USB 1.1a ports, and one PC/104 expansion interface. The flexible display function is supported by integrated Graphics controller which allows users to configure both CRT and TTL LCD or CRT and LVDS LCD as simultaneous mode. Furthermore, the SBC84602 is equipped with rich I/O features including four USB 1.1a ports, four +5V or +12V powered COM ports (one with RS-232/422/485 auto-flow control, three with RS-232), dual Fast Ethernet (optional in Gigabit), SMBus for battery monitoring, CompactFlash type II with DMA mode, AC'97 Codec Audio with amplify, and one PATA-100.

The product is RoHS-compliant and proved to be perfect direct replacement for the obsolete boards that required updating.

Craig Blackman, Managing Director of Sight Systems was delighted with the solution "This project is typical of the type of work that we undertake. We're experienced in providing industrial computer systems to leading OEMs whose demanding requirements include reliability, compact packaging, high performance, wide operating temperature range and any special interfaces and connections. Our expert mechanical, design, electronic and software engineers work with customers to develop products to meet their exact requirements.
"In this instance, we were able to provide BAE Systems with a replacement embedded board that was exceptionally new to the market. The product is a perfect replacement and will improve the reliability of the surveillance screen monitors dramatically."
