SAN DIEGO, CA, March 17, 2011 – ADL Embedded Solutions, a leading provider of embedded industrial single board computers, systems, peripherals and accessories for embedded and stand alone applications, today announced the release of its CS-100 Thermal Chassis Simulator. The CS-100 is a 100in.sq. collapsed chassis that is used to provide a thermal mass and radiative cooling surface for passive cooling of ADL Embedded Solutions CPUs. Drilled with ADL Embedded Solutions’ universal mounting pattern, the CS-100 is compatible with all ADL Embedded Solutions PC/104 heat spreaders and pipes, regardless of the CPU upon which they are mounted. The CS-100 contains both M3 and 4-40 hardware, as well as precision standoffs to support 0.600″ or 1.000″ clearance spreader solutions. Constructed from Blanchard-ground powder-cast plate aluminum, the surface flatness is better than 0.001″ across the entire face. The anodizing gives the unit a basic emissivity of 0.75 or better, and represents the radiative area of an aluminum enclosure with 200sq.in. of surface area.
The CS-100 is also deployed as a development platform for proof of concept passive cooling systems. The extra hole-pairs around the perimeter are linked by a recessed groove on the back of the CS-100. In combination with nylon zip-ties, these hole-pairs make convenient strain-relief attachment points for the interface cables from your mounted PC/104 CPU. Keeping your cables neat and preventing undue harm to the connectors on the PC/104 motherboard, the CS-100 becomes the centerpiece of your passive prototyping experience.
“The CS-100 has found great appeal during the early development stages for many of our design engineers…especially when the enclosure is still under development. It allows our customers the ability to test multiple stacks and setups in a time efficient manner to minimize overall development time,” said J.C Ramirez, Product Manager, ADL Embedded Solutions.
