Aitech's A172 Rugged Compact PC (RCP) is a small, low power, high performance, rugged computer suitable for any application that requires a high performance reliable RCP.
Designed around a standard Type 6 COMM Express Processor Module, the A172 is available with a variety of processor options to meet a wide range of requirements. The modular design and standard module pinout also enable future processor upgrades.
Included on the COMM Express module are the microprocessor and system memory along with a number of I/O interfaces including serial ports, Gigabit Ethernet, USB, DVI, and stereo Audio (Line IN + Line OUT).
The COM Express module is hosted on an Aitech mainboard, which provides further I/O, including additional Gigabit Ethernet and serial ports, as well as Discrete I/O and CANbus interfaces. The mainboard also includes two mini SATA (mSATA) slots to host standard SSD Flash drives, and two mini PCIe slots to host standard mini PCIe modules for further enhancement of system functionality.
