Many of our customers need a high-performance computing solution that they can set and deploy on the field. In other words, they primarily require these three things:
The principal advantage of a portable computer versus a laptop or other mobile computing device is the use of standard motherboards or backplanes providing plug-in slots for add-in cards. This allows mission specific cards such as test, A/D, or communication protocol (IEEE-488, 1553) to be installed. Portable computers also provide for more disk storage by using standard 3-1/2″ drives and providing for multiple drives.
Laptops are also extremely portable. However, there are a number of reasons why laptops cannot provide the necessary performance required by our customers.
Laptops cannot incorporate the necessary processors that many engineering workstations require. Memory storage, I/O options, and even RAM cap out at a certain point for laptops.
One primary feature of our portable computers is the hot swappable HDD/SSD for easy transfer, upgrade, and maintenance. Our NetPAC, for example, can provide 16TB of SSD storage.
Laptops may come with one Ethernet connection, a PCI slot, DVD Rom, and three USB ports. This limitation by laptops is a problem for many of our customers.
Finally, upgradeability is also lacking for laptops.
As a result, our portable computers are for people who need desktop-class performance in a compact construction.
It’s readily apparent why desktops computers are not portable. The wires from the keyboard, mouse, and speakers can become problematic. The monitor and the desktop must be carried separately.
Our portable computers packages all that in a complete solution. You simply “close” or the computer, and the clasps hold everything in place. Afterward, you can carry the computer using the handle to your destination or use one of our three transit cases. We even provide a special waterproof rolling case that fits in the overhead storage bins of planes.
Our portable computers are used in a multitude of industries across a broad spectrum. From the broadcasting market to the military market, we are an industry-leading manufacturing company that specializes in portable computers.
In broadcasting, our portable video production units are used to connect multiple SDI cameras as live feeds and input/output video and audio. For test and measurement, our systems can be deployed on the field with massive storage and high-speed write performance. For the military, our ruggedized portable computers are tested to meet the tough mil-spec standards.
ACME Portable can build and even customize systems to meet your demands. We work with you from concept to design to fit your uniqur applications.
