Rave Computer has announced a new ruggedized MIL-SPEC-810F in-vehicle computer that looks good for use in autonomous vehicles and robots too. The RCV 6100 is based on a 1.6 GHz Atom N270 with up to 2GB of RAM. The fanless design can operate in temperatures ranging from -30 C to 60 C (-22 F to 140 F) and run on 6 - 36 VDC. IO includes a PCI-104 expansion connector, 2 mini PCI express slots, compact Flash and SIM slots, GB Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n, GSM or WCDMA, Bluetooth, GPS, 3 USB ports, 2 RS-232, 1 RS-485, 1 LVDS, 1 VGA, 1 DVI-D, audio in and out, 4 GPIO ports (4 in and 4 out). And, of course, you can run GNU/Linux on it. For even more info, see the RCV 6100 spec sheet (PDF format). How much will all this cost? Rave isn't saying but our guess is you should apply the old rule of thumb: if you have to ask, you can't afford it. Via LinuxDevices.com
