Systems Engineering Is Critical
When designing complex computing solutions, the key to maximizing system performance, reliability, and compatibility is a complete understanding of mechanical enclosure and electronic sub-system interaction (thermally, electrically and physically).
This detailed knowledge of the system architecture provides superior support capability should issues arise once the systems have been deployed into a variety of demanding environments.
This control over the design and manufacture of board-level sub-systems, including single board computers, PCI Express backplanes and motherboards, as well as computer’s system BIOS, provides the foundation for a systems engineering approach to creating customer-driven computing solutions designed to handle the effects of shock & vibration, as well as thermal and EMI issues.
Concurrent Engineering Methodology
Trenton’s coordinated team of electronic, mechanical and BIOS engineers utilize a concurrent engineering methodology to ensure that system performance, compatibility and reliability are accounted for during the design phase, well before the production cycle begins. This approach allows selection from a wide variety of single or multi-core processors which accommodate various clock speeds, memory configurations, I/O interfaces, and operating systems.
This systems-engineering design methodology incorporates advanced processor-related technologies, such as Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions, Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, Intel® Virtualization Technology and Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology all of which support high-density, high-performance application-ready platforms.
