IEE announced a Linux-based thin-client touchpanel computer for harsh military environments. The highly rugged touchpanel computer is equipped with a 1GHz ARM processor and a 10.4-inch, 1024 x 768-pixel resistive touchscreen with backlighting and high contrast, and is usable over an extended temperature range of -46 to 70°C.
IEE Inc. has yet to post full specs for its rugged ARM touchpanel, let alone give it a name. It’s based on the company’s line of “web browser-based control display units (CDUs)”, and offers similar MIL-STD compliance for harsh and “in-the-field” conditions, says the company. The system is said to be designed for soldier mount, vehicle mount, and man-pack handheld use.
