The project was for a small form factor embedded motherboard for use within a mobile communications device. The key factors were continuity of supply and revision control and although the requirements were fairly unique the MOD did not want a bespoke board.
ASL have a very close relationship with a manufacturer of industrial motherboards and SBC’s. This relationship provides Animal Systems with direct links to their engineers for support and also first hand information with regard to product changes and improvements.
The MB-E4MTS2B, a 5.25” Intel Pentium 4 motherboard, met all of the technical criteria and together with written assurances from the manufacturer ASL are able to guarantee supply of this board for up to 5 years.
