Custom Computers For Critical Applications
The custom design process incorporates every aspect of engineering an application-ready computing solution, from mechanical design to electronic design and system BIOS control considerations. Such systems may be based on a modified standard product, or require an entirely new design to address a unique set of performance, feature or environmental needs.
Combining these engineering considerations with manufacturing and integration expertise, custom designs can avoid the limitations and conflicts present in commercially available computer systems built for general purpose applications.
Trenton Systems specializes in the design and manufacture of long-life computing solutions. Engineering and integration facilities are located in Gainesville, GA while our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is located in Utica, NY – both of which are ISO 9001:2008 certified – allowing us to serve a broad spectrum of industries, from government & defense, to energy, industrial automation, communications, video processing and medical.
Custom Solution Becomes Standard Product
The TSS5203 5U rackmount storage server incorporates a 3-segment backplane design for maximum data security. Three small form factor backplanes support a wide range of dual or single-processor single board computers using the latest Intel® multi-core processors.
Three RAID controller cards provide the control needed for the bank of forty-eight (48) front access hot swap storage drives. Support for either AC or DC system power is available and each TSS5203 server comes with the long-life cycle stability and peace-of-mind provided by SBC and backplane availability of seven-years or more.
In this situation a customer came to Trenton with a specific list of configuration requirements, designed to serve a military application, but once the solution was determined it was clear this system could address the needs of other industries and thus became a standard offering.
