Sensor Interface Unit SIU6

Sensor Interface Unit SIU6

Configure with up to 12 I/O and communications function modules—
Over 40 different modules to choose from

Configure to Customize
The SIU6 is a highly configurable rugged system or subsystem ideally suited to support a multitude of Mil-Aero applications that require high-density I/O, communications, Ethernet switching and processing. The SIU35 leverages NAI’s 3U cPCI boards to deliver off-the-shelf solutions that accelerate deployment of SWaP-optimized systems in air, land and sea applications.

Architected for Versatility
NAI’s Custom-On-Standard Architecture™ (COSA™) offers a choice of over 40 intelligent I/O, communication, and Ethernet switch functions, as well as Single Board Computer (SBC) options. Pre-existing, fully-tested functions can be quickly and easily combined in an unlimited number of ways to meet system requirements. Individually dedicated I/O and communication processors allow mission computers to manage, monitor, and control the functions via single or dual Ethernet ports. Alternately, select one of NAI’s 6U VME SBC options.

All products are designed to operate under extreme temperature, shock, vibration, and EMI environments. EMI filters and gaskets meet or exceed MIL-STD-461F and MIL-STD-810G requirements.

Software Support Kit (SSK)
If required, the SIU6 offers a choice of 6U VME processors: Freescale PowerPC QorIQ® P2041, Intel® Core™ i7, Intel® Atom™, and ARM Cortex-A9, enabling customers to choose their ideal SBC. Each SBC supports NAI’s COSA™ architecture to maximize configurability, versatility, and field-proven reliability. Software support includes Wind River® Linux and VxWorks®; Xilinx® PetaLinux; and Windows® Embedded Standard 7. All I/O and communication libraries are available.

Eliminate man-months of integration with a configured, field-proven system from NAI.
