Energy

The Energy segment is subjected to electro-static discharge (ESD), extreme temperatures and high humidity. Urban sprawl means more demands on energy grids so the backbone systems require efficient uninterrupted operation and high durability. Implementations include: substation control, monitoring/diagnostics, data loggers, smart grid controllers and distribution systems.

Industrial Automation

Industrial Automation environments are diverse yet share common requirements – with regard to form-factor, legacy support and endurance. Implementations include: large production plants, industrial PCs, factory automation/robotics, kiosks, ATMs, terminals, process control units and data loggers.

Medical

Medical applications are increasing in complexity and moving closer to the patient. This requires low-power, low-latency solutions at low costs. Implementations include: therapeutic devices, medical imaging, patient diagnostics, measurement and monitoring equipment.

Networking

Networking applications represent the “last mile” of IT data/content. They continue to require quality of service/experience, a reduction in total power consumption and return-on-investment. Implementations include: switches and routers, supervisor and mezzanine cards firewall and VPN equipment and small cell networks.

Smart Cities

Smart Cities is a fast growing frontier for Industrial IoT and embedded technologies – including: sensors, vision systems, self-service kiosks, and devices connected by mesh networks to data centers for analyzing data and adjusting to changing usage patterns. This segment requires compact form-factors with low power requirements and tolerance to extreme temperature, humidity, shock, vibration, etc. as well as resilience to unexpected power loss.

Transportation

Transportation (land, water, air and space) applications are inherently subjected to extreme temperatures, shock and vibration, and high humidity. Implementations include: simple data loggers, GPS / geo-location and navigation, rugged PCs, in-vehicle control, monitoring, diagnostics and a wide range of architectures and software.

Video and Signage

Professional media companies range from high-performance HD video capture to broadcast video serving and digital signage applications. Some devices require heavy write performance (data capture) – others require high read performance (video serving). Implementations include: professional video capture/editing, broadcast, ad terminals, indoor/outdoor multimedia signage, casino gaming and surveillance/security.
