  • The TRC2005 Rugged Military Computer

    The TRC2005 rugged military computer is a ideal system solution for government & defense, as well as industrial automation and energy applications.  The system’s single board computer and butterfly backplane configuration and the rugged computer design enables deployment across a wide spectrum of applications.  The TRC2005 system configuration features a dual or single-processor options featuring Intel® Xeon® processors.

    Options include the dual-processor BXT7059 or JXT6966 and the single-processor TSB7053 or TQ9.  These single board computers are designed and manufactured within the United States by Trenton Systems to ensure maximum longevity that results in extended rugged military computer system configuration stability.

    Additional Trenton Systems backplanes as well as 3rd party backplanes provide a variety of PCIe and PCI-X/PCI plug-in I/O card capability in this rugged military computer, which also features two front access /hot swap storage drives in a shallow depth 18″ enclosure.

    Key features of the TRC2005 rugged military computer include:

    • Rugged, lightweight aluminum chassis
    • Built to order system configuration flexibility
    • Up to two hot swap, front access 2.5″ HDD/SDD storage drives
    • Efficient chassis cooling for long-term system reliability
    • Dual or single-processor SBC options
    • I/O support for PCI Express and PCI plug-in cards

    The dual-processor BXT7059, as well as the single-processor TSB7053, feature long-life Intel® Xeon® processors with up to eight execution cores each and 16 message instruction threads possible per Intel® Xeon® E502448L processor.  The TSB7053 features the long-life Intel Core i7-3770  processor with the Intel 22nm Micro-architecture to deliver quad-core system performance with improved thermal efficiency.

    Like all of our rugged built-to-order computer systems, this solution is designed, integrated and supported by Trenton Systems in the United States.  Our exclusive 5-year factory warranty on the single board computer and backplane options manufactured by Trenton comes standard with this rugged military computer.

    Single Board Computer


    The TRC2005 is a 2U rackmount computer system with a depth dimension of 18.0″ (45.7cm).  This lightweight aluminum chassis weighs 23.8 lbs. (10.81 Kg.) and features a 2U butterfly backplane and a choice of PICMG 1.3 system host board.

    This rackmount computer supports long-life embedded SHB options such as the Trenton’s TSB7053 and JXT6966 system host boards.  The TSB7053 is a single processor SHB featuring the CPUs built on the Sandy Bridge micro-architecture such as the Intel® Xeon® E3-1200 series processors and the Intel® Core™ i3-2120.  The JXT6966 option is a dual-processor SHB featuring a variety of Jasper Forest processors including the quad-core Intel® Xeon® EC5549 processors.  Both SHB options offer long-life embedded components; including processors, to provide a 7+ year product availability timeline.

    Standard 2U PICMG 1.3 butterfly backplane options are used in the TRC2005 to provide support for PCI Express, PCI-X and PCI option cards.  The number and type of I/O option cards slots available are a function of the specific SHB and backplane combination.

    The TRC2005 provides multiple front access storage drives and a slim-line optical media bay.  The system also features a front panel USB port, various rear panel I/O ports including Ethernet, additional USB ports, RS-232 serial ports, PS/2 ports and PCIe, PCI-X and PCI option card slots.




    Trenton’s FSC1400 simultaneously controls and monitors tach pulses from up to four system fans.  The controller also accepts fan speed commands (including on/off) and provides individual pass/fail fan status via an I2C interface to the computer’s PICMG 1.3 system host board.  Fan speed can also be based on temperature via the provided thermal sensor.

    See the FSC1400 System Fan Speed Controller datasheet for additional details on system fan control operation.
