Lawrenceville, Georgia, August 4, 2020 – Trenton Systems, a manufacturer of rugged servers, workstations, blade servers, storage systems, mini PCs, processor boards and PCIe backplanes, excels at designing rugged workstations that power automatic test equipment (ATE) used by major defense and prime contractors across the nation.
Trenton Systems’ made-in-USA rugged workstations are a tried-and-true choice for ATE systems and ATE software. These hardened, high-performance workstations, available in 1U, 2U, 4U and 5U configurations and sporting up to 18 PCIe slots, power ATE systems for industries and applications that utilize a variety of different test instruments daily, including those assessing the effectiveness of military weapons systems, communications systems, radar systems, electronic warfare systems and more.
"Our products are being used in support of a high mix of aerospace products, ranging from computer-controlled fuel sensing systems, electronic braking systems, actuation/controller missile systems, and HUMS," said Sean Campbell, Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Business Development at Trenton Systems. "Major prime contractors rely on Trenton’s hardware to support development of electrical, mechanical and software specifications to test end items. These designs must be traceable to their end customers and system specifications, thus making our hardware essential in support of the manufacturing/operations group to help ensure on-time delivery of products. We become an essential part of their ecosystem in the delivery of finished products, ensuring our products will perform as specified to meet customer and system requirements."
Automatic test equipment is an essential part of assessing the reliability and functionality of electronic components, devices and systems. Not only can they diagnose faults and verify that certain electronic components are working properly, they can also cut manufacturing costs significantly by reducing test time.
Equipped with 7th Gen Intel Core i3, i5, i7 or Intel Xeon E3 V6 processors, up to 64GB of DDR4-2400 dual-channel memory across four ECC DIMMs and supporting front-access or internal 6 GB/s SATA drives and up to four optional M.2 drives and 18 PCIe slots, Trenton Systems’ made-in-USA rugged workstations have the computational power, speedy storage options and PCIe slots necessary to power your ATE system for years to come.
"One of our most popular board and backplane combos for ATE is a Trenton Systems TKL8255 processor board with a PICMG 1.3 backplane. The two most popular backplanes recently have been the BPG8155 and BPG6615," said Jeremy Lee, Strategic Account Manager at Trenton Systems. "Our PCIe expansion chassis are also popular, as they allow our customers to use more I/O cards, a feature that isn’t an option with just one rack mount system. A recent customer chose Trenton Systems because of the PCIe Gen 3 slots that we were able to offer them, not to mention that they value BIOS-controlled, made-in-USA rugged computer systems backed by an incredibly helpful in-house support team for years to come."
Along with a powerful system, choosing Trenton Systems comes with a host of other perks, including:
- A system that’s designed, manufactured, assembled, integrated and supported in the USA from the board up
- In-house stress testing for MIL-STD-810 and DO-160
- A system with an industry-leading life cycle of at least 11 years
- BIOS, management customization and control
- Revision and obsolescence control
- An industry-leading five-year warranty
- Limited lifetime support
- Lightning-fast customer response times
- Short lead times
- Low mean time to repair
