GRIP Delta LP
Rugged PC

The GRIP Delta LP is a true commercial off the shelf (COTS) high performance rugged computer system which is targeted at applications which require high- end CPU and GPU processing in harsh environments.

Discription

The GRIP Delta features an Intel 3rd generation Intel CoreTM i7 Mobile Processor and embedded HD4000 graphics processor. The GRIP chassis provides an IP67 sealed enclosure for the internal COTS hardware technology. Within the chassis, a combination of convection and conduction cooling ensures minimal heat stress of the components. Internal shock isolation is also used to ensure reliable operation in harsh environments where the unit is subjected to shock and vibration.

Application areas of this technology include engine room monitoring and control, security, automotive, transportation, oil and gas, nuclear, military and aerospace sectors.

The GRIP architecture integrates the four key elements of embedded design:
