BR2000 Targets Civil / Military Man-Wearable and Vehicle Computing Apps for Where Size, Weight, Power, Price and Function Rein Paramount
Amaro, ITALY, February 23, 2011 — Eurotech subsidiary Parvus introduces the Zypad® BR2000, a rugged, small-form factor wearable computer and vehicle server designed to be the highest performance, most versatile, rugged computing subsystem in its class for a host of civil and military applications. Leveraging the low-power architecture of the Intel Atom processor together with high-speed wired and wireless network and device I/O interfaces, the BR2000 serves as an ideal soldier / worker wearable computer or vehicle-mount subsystem ready for Linux and Windows applications.
As a man-wearable computer, the BR2000 is designed to be worn on a tactical vest, utility belt, pocket or backpack and interface with a wrist-worn, vest-mounted or hand-held display, and/or helmet monocle. Weighing in at less than 1.8 lbs (~0.8 kg) when fully integrated with its rechargeable / removable battery, the BR2000 delivers excellent processing and communications capabilities under battery operation while maintaining a very small and lightweight mechanical package, similar in size to a portable cassette tape player.
Designed for extreme temperatures, vibration, shock, and sealed against exposure to the elements, the BR2000 is also an ideal computing solution for Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) constrained vehicle and aircraft platforms, delivering full PC functionality for Command and Control (C2) applications. Without the battery, the unit weighs a mere 1.4 lb (~0.6 kg) and can be hard mounted inside small nooks and crannies. Standard I/O includes Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0, RS232/422, Audio, and 2D/3D Video Output.
The product can be flexibly configured to meet different application requirements, including mix and match preferences for wireless (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS), internal/removable Flash storage (Onboard Flash, CompactFlash) in standard/secure erase versions, and disposable / rechargeable battery packs or external DC power (i.e. from regulated vehicle power / military battery packs).
