The Slimpack MLSH hermetically sealed aluminum electrolytic capacitor’s glass-to-metal seal prevents dry-out, offering longer life for demanding military and aerospace applications. At 1.0" x 1.5" x 0.5", the MLSH Slimpack weighs less and has more capacitance than a parallel bank of three or more wet tantalum capacitors at -55°C.
Additionally, the technology costs significantly less than a comparable bank of wet tantalum capacitors.

Safety certifiable 3U VPX graphics modules
VPX3-717 and VPX3-719 rugged 3U VPX high performance graphics cards feature AMD Radeon E8860 graphics processing units. Multi-head graphics cards support the lifecycle hardware and software availability of 15+ years required for defense and aerospace programs. Designed for use in safety certifiable applications, these size-, weight-, power-, and cost- (SWaP-C) optimized modules were developed to meet DO-254 DAL C and DO-178C DAL A certification. Available certification artifact kits ease platform certification, speed time to market, and reduce the cost and risk of developing safety certifiable electronics subsystems for commercial and military aviation platforms.
The VPX3-719, for applications requiring video capture and HD-SDI video interfaces, provides 2GB of dedicated video memory, and a hardware-accelerated video compression encoder and decoder.
The VPX3-717 provides an on-module XMC mezzanine expansion site which can be configured with a variety of XMC card types. The card can also be configured with a Power Architecture-, Intel-, or ARM-based processor XMC single board computer (SBC) enabling single-slot graphics plus SBC solutions.
