BLUE BELL, Pa. May 18, 2016 – MEN Micro Inc. now offers a robust ARINC 600 compliant high speed network server for in-flight communications. Pre-integrated and pre-qualified to DO-160G up to the operating system, the versatile MP70S enables aircrafts to achieve new levels of in-flight connectivity for wireless data transmission, entertainment, and system maintenance applications.
CompactPCI Serial based in-flight network server
ARINC 600, 4MCU housing with status display
Intel Core i7, quad-core 64-bit processor
16-port managed Gigabit Ethernet Switch
Two rugged hot-plug HDD/SSD shuttles with locking support
Two antenna interfaces for WiFi and/or 3G/4G cellular interfaces
Application-ready, CPCI Serial-based system for high speed data handling
Using the latest Intel Core i7, quad-core 64-bit processor, the MP70S easily handles the high performance computing and networking requirements of modern avionics applications.
A carrier-grade, managed 16-port Ethernet switch ensures high availability, providing six ports internally and 10 via the ARINC 600 connector. The new airborne server can simultaneously act as a passenger-accessible wireless access point, while providing a cellular 3G/4G connection for data loading.
Based on CompactPCI Serial, the MP70S is a scalable system offering flexible I/O configuration and long-term availability. Exceptional reliability is ensured through the extremely robust, conduction cooled housing and firmly soldered components as well as the elimination of any maintenance-intensive cables.
The application-ready, general purpose platform is ideal for a variety of in-flight applications such as wireless content servers, web or flight maintenance servers, as well as in-flight entertainment systems.
An ARINC 600, 4 MCU housing features a multipurpose OLED display that enables easy viewing of system status, operating instructions, and user-defined data points.
Servicing and maintenance are easily handled through a convenient front panel, which also provides access to two USB 3.0 interfaces for fast, efficient data uploads and internal disk updates. Two hot-pluggable 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD shuttles, supporting a total storage capacity of 1.8 TB, and two SIM card slots are also accessible via the front panel.
The robust system provides interfaces for ARINC 429 and ARINC 717 as well as discrete I/O for connectivity to legacy aircraft equipment.
