Elma Electronic – Embedded Systems Platforms

Elma Electronic Inc. supplies a first class offering of VITA standards based products for standard and rugged COTS electronics packaging and sub-systems integration: chassis, boards, backplanes, mechanical components, and cabinets. Elma’s Embedded Computing products and services make the company a leading supplier of VME, VXS and VPX based integrated embedded boards and sub-systems. System architecture, hardware, and software design services enable delivery of complete solutions. For rugged requirements, we take COTS products, such as single board computers, then enhance and qualify them to meet certain MIL Standards.


Our extensive chassis product offering is unparalleled in the industry: rugged COTS 19” rackmount chassis, ATR boxes, and non-rugged and lab appropriate chassis and enclosures. The 12R2 series is an extrusion-based modular design, which provides a cost-effective way to customize designs. Elma’s rugged chassis platforms meet the EMI/RFI requirements for MIL-STD-461D, and shock and vibration according to MIL-STD-167, MIL-STD-810F and MIL-STD-910D. Our popular Type 32 towers and E-Frame chassis are perfect for new board-level and system development in the lab.


Elma is capable of quickly turning projects from initial system architecture through to specification, design, manufacturing and test. We also work with you to manage the entire project including EOL issues, spares inventory and lifecycle management. Elma is truly qualified to offer the widest range of best of class products and by teaming with our partners, we provide complete standard or custom integrated embedded sub-system platforms to meet your requirements.
