Short Product Overview
Computer Boards and Systems for Railways
Standard and custom solutions for rolling-stock equipment from complex locomotive control to infotainment systems,
for maintenance trains as well as for track-side management – qualified up to EN 50155 level.
Railway Intelligence Worldwide – from the Specialist for Embedded Computing Solutions
“Founded in 1982 MEN Mikro Elektronik® develops and produces failsafe computer boards and control
systems for extreme environmental conditions in industrial embedded applications.
Since the mid-1990s we have focussed our knowledge and products on the most challenging market for
electronics equipment in terms of ruggedness and reliability – railways and its universal EN 50155 standards.
Our control, measuring, test and simulation computers are used on board trains or on the track, on buses,
commercial vehicles, ships and airplanes, in the automotive industry, in the medical industry, in mechanical
and military engineering, and telecommunications.
More than 150 professional employees located in Germany, France, and the USA are looking forward
to partner with you worldwide.”

Electronic components in railway applications have to conform with rigid safety levels, often combined with the most
rugged environmental requirements. Because of the danger to human life and high downtime costs, reliability must be

Flexible and Future-Safe with FPGA Technology
FPGAs – Field Programmable Gate Arrays – allow perfect customization of the hardware at an attractive price even in
low quantites. With an FPGA device on a computer board it is possible to program parts of the I/O or even a complete
microcontroller needed for dedicated control tasks of a specific application without touching the board layout. FPGA
technology accelerates time-to-market and reduces project cost. The advantages of using FPGAs become even more
exciting in railway applications because...
... FPGAs Perfectly Meet
EN 50155 Requirements
One of the most critical requirements is a
­guaranteed operational temperature between
-40 and +85°C. Many parts however can only
be screened because the component manu­
facturer often does not guarantee the Tx
temperature range according to EN 50155.
Since the functionality of many of these components can now be programmed in FPGA,
there is only one part which must fulfill the
railway requirements and this is the FPGA
itself. FPGAs are specified with -40 to +85°C
operation temperature. As required by EN
50155 the FPGA is used only within the

System Solutions and Packaging
Electronic boards need packaging that perfectly suits their place of operation. On the
other hand they are the interface from the
control to the outer world. As a housing or
rackmount enclosure they must meet strictly
defined requirements regarding temperature
development, shock and vibration strength
or EMC criteria – just as the board itself.
Although always built for the customer‘s
needs, for reasons of cost a system solution
should be based on standard components.

designed to be much more compact and robust. While the Kahlua Box is based on a PowerPC® control and provides

All boards are available for at least 5 years (Intel®) or 10 years (PowerPC®) – on special agreement up to 20 years.
Most of the cards are at least screened for an ambient operation temperature of -40 to +85°C (Tx), and many of
them can even be produced with components in the respective temperature range. Every CPU board is equipped
with a specially designed heat sink, which in many cases allows for fanless operation in the system. All the boards
have passed the necessary shock and vibration tests in MEN‘s in-house lab and are prepared for coating against

For flexible, modular expansion of the functionality of a computer system I/O functions based on mezzanines are often
the best solution. Mezzanine modules are small plug-on boards that can be used in VMEbus, CompactPCI® or standalone systems. M-Modules™, PMC and PC-MIP® are ANSI mezzanine standards with worldwide acceptance. While
PCI-based modules like PMC and PC-MIP® are ideal for computer I/O (graphics, Ethernet, serial interfaces, fieldbusses),
M-Modules™ are better suited for industrial functions like analog/digital I/O, fieldbus interfaces and I/O for robotics,
motion and instrumentation.
All of the cards are at least screened for an ambient operation temperature of -40 to +85°C (Tx), and many of
them can even be produced with components in the respective temperature range. All the boards have passed the

The necessity to increase speed and density on the rail network and to harmonize the rail communication between
countries has led to multiple projects that try to build on the ERTMS (European Rail Traffic Management System)
which has been initiated by the European Commission and leading railway representatives in 2005. ERTMS builds on
ETCS and GSM-R. ETCS (European Train Control System) is the new control-command system and GSM-R is the new
radio system for voice and data communication.
The computers used in traffic management systems – from the signaling equipment outside up to the safety
­management and communication systems inside the train – must be extremely safe. The safety standard that a ­system
must comply to is described by classes, called SIL levels (Safety Integrity Level). The universal standard IEC61508
­defines SIL 4 as the level with the highest reliability down to SIL 1 with the lowest reliability. Measures to increase the
­availability of a system include a variety of protection mechanisms built in hardware and often even redundancy of
the complete computer system or parts of it.
........ You‘re feeling free.....free . . . . . f re e . . . . . f r.
In addition to hardware measures the railway standards EN50126, EN50128 and EN50129 describe how ­development
and planning of development has to be carried out, how requirements are formulated (what has to be done) and
how requirements are translated into an architecture (how it shall be done) on system level. MEN uses the V-model to
develop its computer hardware, board-support packages and driver software.

Short Product Overview
Computer Boards and Systems for Railways
Standard and custom solutions for rolling-stock equipment from complex locomotive control to infotainment systems,
for maintenance trains as well as for track-side management – qualified up to EN 50155 level.
Railway Intelligence Worldwide – from the Specialist for Embedded Computing Solutions
“Founded in 1982 MEN Mikro Elektronik® develops and produces failsafe computer boards and control
systems for extreme environmental conditions in industrial embedded applications.
Since the mid-1990s we have focussed our knowledge and products on the most challenging market for
electronics equipment in terms of ruggedness and reliability – railways and its universal EN 50155 standards.
Our control, measuring, test and simulation computers are used on board trains or on the track, on buses,
commercial vehicles, ships and airplanes, in the automotive industry, in the medical industry, in mechanical
and military engineering, and telecommunications.
More than 150 professional employees located in Germany, France, and the USA are looking forward
to partner with you worldwide.”
