Custom Compact Embedded PC Overview

IIoT Connectivity to the Cloud

The demand for industrial-grade embedded PC’s continues to grow in key industry segments. Much of this is driven by the advent of Industry 4.0 and IIoT applications which put an emphasis on controller and sensor intelligent to enable smart monitoring and control or datalinks to the network or cloud.

ADL’s vast experience in military rugged, small form factor design have allowed us to create a number of compact SBCs, as small as 75mm x 75mm. These SBCs are the system building blocks that give customers the industrial solutions needed for a variety of demanding IIoT applications for secure networking and cybersecurity, ICS / SCADA, oil and gas, avionics, power grid protection or traffic engineering where reliable long-term operation in wide temperature or rugged conditions is an absolute must. Many of these solutions are backed by CPU availability as long as 15 years.

Trusted by Clients Around the World

ADL specializes in compact, wide temperature industrial designs for use scenarios ranging from benign factory floor conditions to embedded applications in a variety of wide temperature and harsh environments — ICS/SCADA cybersecurity, compact devices for secure networking, power grid edge devices, oil and gas platforms and Factory 4.0 secure communication to name a few. Expert FAE, Design and Engineering services enable ADL Embedded Solutions to provide robust, superior embedded solutions around the world!

Built on a legacy of small form factor (SFF) rugged designs, our CPU form factors are as small as 75mm x 75mm to enable compact embedded designs and can fit just about anywhere.

All our CPU boards are designed for -40C to 85C operation to allow for widest possible operating temperature conditions.

We use only Intel® mobile embedded processors to ensure long term availability up to 15 years. This minimizes costly changes to software and hardware as equipment is added or replaced.

Tools like Solidworks® 3D CAD design software aid in rapid development of enclosure and system concepts and makes for efficient communication of design concepts with customers to minimize development time and time to market.

ADL builds on a legacy of rugged military system expertise to design products capable of surviving rugged shock and vibration, humidity or extreme temperature conditions.

ADL offers highly skilled tech support, FAE and engineering support as well access to design team engineers for custom BIOS or hardware development services.
