AVC-VME 6003 provides a rugged, yet highly flexible COTS computing platform suited for military aviation, civilian aviation, and other 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. Instead of a wiring harness, the AVC reduces weight and increases reliability by using a lightweight printed circuit board (PCB) to route all internal I/O to the external front panel.

At 7.82" H x 4.88" W x 12.61" D, the 150 watt, 6U VME 5 slot configuration provides an Intel® Pentium® processor based single board computer, along with two dual-redundant 1553 channels. In addition, optional ARINC, additional 1553, and Flash memory capabilities are available. The AVC-VME 6003 dissipates less than 45 watts of power via conduction cooling.

  • Additional 1553 and ARIC capacity available
  • Single slot Intel® Celeron® or Pentium® III processor VMEbus single board computer up to 850MHz
  • PCB-based wiring harness for improved reliability
  • 150 watt power supply
