Rugged Electronics
Complete System Solutions
Rugged electronics imply safe and reliable operation of a computer board or
system in harsh environments. Electronic components in mobile applications
need to meet the most severe environmental requirements. Our boards
and systems are developed to meet requirements like extended operating
temperature from -40 to +85°C as well as shock, bump and vibration. Also,
the electronics have to be protected against chemicals and humidity.
Whether developing a 19“ system, wall-mount, stand-alone, DIN rail or an
entire custom solution, we guarantee the overall operation of each system,
minimizing integration efforts and the handling costs on the client’s side.
The concept of receiving the entire solution from MEN – a single supplier
responsible for the whole system – makes project management easier for
the client and allows us to tailor the system to the requirements. We are also
­responsible for selecting the right third-party components and deciding if it
is necessary to develop additional components.
Safe Electronics
Failures in safety-critical electronic systems can result in loss of life,
substantial ­financial damage or can severely harm the environment. System
considerations include safety-critical characteristics, reliability questions
and error behavior modes according to IEC and EN standards. MEN has the
long-standing expertise to develop, configure and build redundant system
architectures that deliver the basis for certification according to SIL and DAL
safety levels and to offer functionally safe board-level products.
Our Design Center
Software, hardware and IP-core design are verified, achieved and validated
according to the V-Model and the individual application’s safety requirements.
­Reliability of the electronics are evaluated and proven by environmental type
tests in accordance with market standards like EN 50155 or DO-160. Obsolescence m
­ anagement guarantees a defined product life-cycle and replacement
procedure. Our RAMS management identifies, analyzes, prioritizes and solves
all possible risks in technical, financial or personnel-related respects.
Our Environmental Test Lab
With our own environmental laboratory, we perform all the necessary
climatic tests to not only make sure that the electronics fulfills the requirements, but to gain pre-qualification status for the products in accordance
with specific vertical market standards. This includes testing regarding
temperature, shock and vibration as well as EMC. Other inspections that
can be carried out are high-voltage tests and infrared inspection with an
IR camera as well as HASS (Highly Accelerated Stress Screening) and HALT
(Highly Accelerated Life Test) to detect possible weaknesses in electronics
and mechanics.
Our In-House Production and Test
High-quality manufacturing in Germany at an affordable cost is possible.
Our fully automated in-house production line consists of components
optimized for a cost-effective high-production diversity. Complete
traceability is guaranteed through time stamping during the production
process and is integrated into the organization‘s overall data system.
The test department performs a 100% functional test of each board – on
boundary scan and/or in-circuit machines, depending on the product.
Unit inspections, e.g. high voltage tests, are done when required by the
product. Burn-in tests are carried out per customer request.

Reaching High Aims
COTS Solutions
up to SIL 4
Modern trains have many functions directly controlled by computer systems,
such as the train drive and speed control as well as the control of doors,
lighting or heating. As environments are often harsh and narrow, computers
in railway applications must be robust and compact. The systems are
­typically networked by fieldbuses (CAN bus, MVB/WTB, ProfiNet), and
increasingly by safe Ethernet variants. Compliance with at least parts of
EN 50155 is mandatory.
In addition, many applications are safety-critical and demand safety levels
from SIL 1 to SIL 4, often resulting in redundant systems with defined error
handling. These include (onboard) train protection, the safe operation of
signals and switches and other vital functions in wayside control and traffic
management (e.g., in accordance with the European ERTMS or the American
PTC system).
High Speed Trains
Metro Vehicles
Computers for train communication are mission-critical, transmitting data
and voice information between the train, the wayside equipment and
­control center. They are also used for passenger convenience (information
and entertainment), with up-to-date information loaded to onboard
servers and transferred to displays. And, they support security initiatives
(surveillance systems), recording camera data streams to video recorders
and transmitting data to the control center. With in-vehicle communication
mostly based on standard Ethernet, the outside infrastructure is connected
using different wireless standards (GSM-R/P, GPRS, Edge, UMTS, HDSPA,

Wireless Service System
Train Protection with
SIL 4 Computer
This CompactPCI® PlusIO system takes care of all
data transfers between individual trains and the
railway company‘s central servers via UMTS and/or
WLAN, e.g., pending seat reservations, information
about the current trip including potential
connections and other services. It also provides
GPS functionality, optimizing available passenger
information within the train at any given moment.
In this application, a COTS VMEbus single board
computer (SBC) provides the safety of a triple
redundant 2oo3 system, but is programmed like a
single CPU/memory system. Two identical SBCs are
then connected to a cluster, forming a safe I/O
concept. This safe computer for SIL 4 operation
controls interlocking blocks and other wayside
Driver Desk Communication
with ATO
Diagnosis and Service
The driver desk computer integrated with a
human-machine interface directly communicates
with the automatic train operation (ATO) system
and displays present and maximum speed, the
movable distance and the isolation section. The
operator inputs driving data for transmission to the
ATO system. The conduction-cooled system is based
on an ESMexpress® COM.
This conduction-cooled diagnosis system monitors
and logs data of the motor functions, the doorclosing mechanisms and other functions reported to
the depot during travel. The rugged CompactPCI®based system uses M12 connectors for the Ethernet
channels and is equipped with an intelligent power
supply for system shutdown.
Automatic Train Operation
Train Surveillance Systems
This control and monitoring system for a driverless
underground application provides a response
channel that allows the permanent transmission of
the vehicle‘s status back to the control center. The
redundant CompactPCI® computer systems consist
of five independent units forming two 1oo2 systems
and one separate system for communication and
data storage.
Each train system includes a combination of four
digital video recorder units and two video display
servers, all housed in an individual CompactPCI® rack.
The digital video recorder unit captures closed circuit
television (CCTV) images to disk and stores event
data collected from the set. The video display server
enables real-time display of CCTV images on the set.
Buses, coaches, trucks and other commercial vehicles as well as construction
and agricultural machines have many functions directly controlled by
computer systems that also need to communicate with the outside world.
Most of these environments are harsh, so the computers must be very robust
and may require e1 automotive certification. In addition to robustness, a
small footprint is a must in narrow driver cabins.
Control computers for vital functions are typically networked by fieldbuses,
like CAN bus, inside the vehicle. Communication computers internally are
mainly based on standard Ethernet, while the outside systems are connected
using different wireless standards (GSM, GPRS, Edge, UMTS, HDSPA, LTE,
Dynamic information systems on a public vehicle inform passengers of the
current traffic and weather conditions, tour destinations and delays. Access
points are required for Internet service or connection to the telephone
network. Content servers and video recorders may store movies or camera
data from surveillance systems.
Precise piloting of construction or agricultural machines (even at night)
may require control of cameras, reception of GPS data for navigation and
communication with other drivers, with all kinds of data and diagnostics
transmitted and exchanged with the company office or farmhouse.

up to DAL-A
Airborne functions in commercial or business airplanes are controlled by
federated or integrated modular avionics systems. These embedded computers
are responsible for vital functions such as flight and engine control, naviga­tion,
weather systems or collision avoidance. They are part of the in-flight communication, supervision, security, cabin and passenger information systems, and
are more and more frequently connected by safe Ethernet networks like AFDX
(ARINC-664). Compliance with the EN 9100 standard is mandatory.
Other applications include airport infrastructure ranging from air traffic
­management and radar to passenger information and security or even test
systems for aircraft production.
As many of the airborne applications are safety-critical, computer components
have to be developed according to DO-254 and DO-178B and have to conform
to safety levels DAL-D up to DAL-B or DAL-A. Critical parts have to be proven fit
for flight. The computers are fault-tolerant, based on redundancy, ­availability
architecture and built-in test equipment (BITE). Safe avionics computers
are mostly developed as custom systems. Certifiable platforms based on COTS
solutions are rare.
In addition, environments are harsh, and volume and weight are a challenge,
so computers must be robust, compact and lightweight. Conductive cooling
is the preferred method to cope with extreme temperatures and designs must
be SEU-resistant to avoid computing errors caused by cosmic radiation.
MEN is certified to EN/AS 9100.

three external outputs as well as voltage and
temperature. Thanks to the onboard intelligence, the PSU can also act as an SMBus slave
and communicate with the CPU board via the
This allows the PSU to power on the system at
a programmed date or it allows the CPU card to
make status polls with regard to error messages,
time-out or on/off, for example.

Custom Design Expertise
The Design Process
Design quality is a deciding factor in a product’s reliable operation.
The individual steps towards the final product always follow dedicated
rules, which are part of an implemented quality management system
(DIN EN ISO 9001, EN/AS 9100 and IRIS).
Custom Design of
Computer Boards and Systems
Often the most cost-effective solution results in a custom design – while
using as many standard components as possible. Synergy emerges through
the mutual development of standard and custom boards and systems.
Complete System Solutions Based on
In-House Mechanical Design
Whether developing a 19” system, wall-mount, stand-alone or DIN-rail, we
guarantee overall operation of each system, minimizing the integration
effort and the handling cost on the client‘s side. The quality of our systems
is ensured by applying traceability through the V-model.
Customer Assistance in Configuration of
Mission-Critical Systems
Computer architectures with safety-critical requirements are very complex.
Considerations include safety-critical characteristics and levels (SIL, DAL),
reliability questions, error behavior modes, and the major IEC and
EN standards – backed by professional safety and risk management.
Our RAMS management (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety)
has been installed to avoid costly mistakes in the planning phase. RAMS
is used for risk identification and analysis, determination of risk rates and
safety as well as for reliability verifications.
MEN defines standards and guidelines used during specification, design,
verification and validation of a product. In addition to the description of
schematic drawings or product naming conventions, these policies contain
the design rules for maintainability, testing, robustness, production and
product safety.
Other regulations refer to things such as the use of design tools, the
selection of electronic components or fail-safe and fault-tolerant design
constructs. To support customer certification and approvals, additional
design assurance methods including traceability, functional tests of all
hardware functions or specific environmental tests are applied.
