Nano Interface Unit – NIU2A

NAI’s NIU2A contains an integrated power supply, two function module slots and an optional ARM® Cortex®-A9 processor. This small, low-power unit is ideally suited for rugged military, industrial, and commercial applications. It delivers off-the-shelf solutions that accelerate deployment of SWaP-optimized systems – in less time, with NO NRE.

All products are designed to operate under extreme temperature, shock, vibration, and EMI environments. EMI filters and gaskets meet or exceed MIL-STD-461F and MIL-STD-810G requirements.

The NIU2A unit includes BSP and SSK support for Wind River® VxWorks® and for Xilinx® PetaLinux (w/optional ARM Processor). In addition, SSKs are supplied with source code and board-specific library I/O APIs to facilitate system integration.
