Home » Capabilities » COTS System Design

Hartmann’s vast experience in full system integration has made us a trusted partner for thousands of satisfied customers, worldwide. Our knowledge and infrastructure allows customers to utilize our wide array of resources when integrating COTS systems. While we are always working to stay current in technological standards and trends, we use the proven building blocks from past designs whenever possible to ensure quality and durability from the start. 

Our capabilities as a service provider don’t stop at COTS systems. Having developed thousands of custom systems, our plug-and-play product lines continue to grow in both product  quantity and sophistication. With vast experience in backplane-based ATR chassis, we have pointed our expertise toward the development and manufacturing of SFF (small form factor) computer-based systems, designed with flexibility for custom modification in mind. Our CBX series computers combine approved commercial standard slots like M.2, mPCIe, mSATA as well as the state-of-the-art military XMC standards for high performance computing.

Backplane Based

  • For ATR, 19” chassis and box solutions
  • VPX, VME, Compact PCI, VXI… 
  • Backplane as well as MOTS (Modifiable of the Shelf) carrier board solutions 
  • MIL-38999 connectors 
  • Conduction-cooled and air-cooled design 
  • Third party module integration
  • Development platforms 
  • space-saving modular design approach to provide the highest flexibility for the end-user
  • Edge board design
  • HE standard flex cable assembly with up to 56 Gbps performance to interface the backplane’s I/Os to the chassis’ circular connector interface

Carrier Based

  • Small Form Factor (SFF) computing 
  • scalable computing performance through exchangeable COM Express modules
  • Motherboard / carrier board design / third party module integration 
  • Module form factors (M.2, PCIe Mini, mSATA, XMC, PMC, CFAST, COM Express, COMs, …) 
  • Technologies (PCIe, Ethernet, UART, SATA, VIDEO, AUDIO, GPIO,…) 
  • Applications (safety, redundant systems, MIL-systems…)
  • Reuse proven schematics and layouts, rather than starting from scratch for each project
  • Modify functionality only as needed based on custom requirements, which streamlines the design, testing, and manufacturing of new products

OVPX MIL I/O Connection

  • Harmann Electronic supports you to cope with the many I/O options of open VPX
  • Any I/O option has its advantages and disadvantages
  • HE standard flex cables are designed for space sensitive applications 
  • Up to 160 single ended and differential I/Os per flex cable
  • Based on High density BGA based connector array that supports up to 56 Gbps differential transmission
  • Very flexible design for applications that have the highest demands on shock and vibration
