AVC-cPCI 3006 provides a rugged, yet highly flexible COTS computing platform suited for mission applications requiring rock-solid reliability such as UAVs, booster vehicles, and ground vehicles. Manufactured using Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) and milling, the aluminum alloy (6061-T6) is strong, lightweight, and resistant to EMI.

At 8.65" H x 11.26" W x 13.6" D, the 300 watt, 3U cPCI 14 slot configuration provides six 2nd generation CM4 Power-PC processors, 12 channels of RS-232/422/485 high speed serial, 24 dual redundant 1553 channels, and Ethernet connectivity. In addition, the four DIO1 cards together provide over 160 inputs and outputs including; bi-level optically coupled inputs and outputs, general purpose TTL, and an encoder interface. The AVC-cPCI 3006 weighs under 28 lbs and dissipates less than 36 watts of power via conduction cooling.
