Shipboard Command Desk

Standard Components Used in this Example

Command desks on ships use embedded systems to control and monitor the engines and electric propulsion, electrical and hydraulic systems, navigation, communication and integrated platform management systems. Modular open standard 3U 19" CompactPCI and increasingly CompactPCI Serial systems are used in several of those applications.

A typical control system comprises of one or two embedded single board computers based on Intel Core Technology and all state-of-the-art PC interfaces, including fieldbuses like CAN bus, to connect to displays, cameras or data storage, and wireless interfaces to support vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-land communication.

A similar application uses 6U VMEbus COTS boards based on PowerPC architecture, combined with ANSI standard M-Module mezzanine cards for the integration of analog and binary I/Os and temperature measurement.

Operating temperature of these kind of systems varies from 0 to +60°C and can go up to -40 to +85°C.

Standard Components Used in this Example

F23P - Embedded Single Board Computer with Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7

The F23P is an x86 PC based embedded computer for industrial automation and railway transportation, featuring the 4th generation Haswell Intel Core family up to the i7-4700EQ processor. The SBC is compliant with the PICMG 2.30 standard and as such a perfect migration path from CompactPCI to CompactPCI Serial.


A21B - Embedded Single Board Computer, QorIQ P1xxx, M-Modules

The A21B is a PowerPC based embedded computer for industrial automation. The SBC features an NXP single-core P1013 or dual-core P1022 QorIQ processor and M-Module mezzanine slots.


G23 - Embedded Single Board Computer with Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7

The G23 is an x86 PC based embedded computer for industrial automation and railway transportation, featuring the 4th generation Haswell Intel Core family up to the i7-4700EQ processor. The SBC is perfectly suited for data-intensive applications which require high computing-power.
