Company Background:


Sterling has been providing rugged computers since 1991. We were offering a basic Lunchbox Computer with a 386 processor. At that time a portable or “lunchbox” PC was competing with the laptop market since the weight and functionality was similar. The lunchbox could be upgraded but the laptops were fixed with components that could not be changed. These units were the first to offer the integrated LCD display.

The portable computer continued to gain weight, while the laptop became ever smaller and much more transportable with increased battery life and processing power. These units are now called notebook computers and tablet PC’s. 

At this point the portable computer is offering desktop computer performance with all the expansion capability that this case design would allow.  The lunchbox pc now offers multiple drive bay capability with full length PCI slots and ISA slots.  Removable Hard Drive bays can handle the new Terabyte capacity hard drives.  These units can offer the latest processors on the market including the latest Intel and AMD processors on a server platform.

Rugged PC Computers are now available in custom configuration delivering desktop performance. The biggest emphasis is now seen in performance capabilities. Sterling is able to incorporate the latest Intel Xeon server designs into a luggable platform. Our Zeus models offer advanced designs in a rugged platform (luggable computer). Our single board computer designs will still handle specialized ISA and PCI cards so necessary in the instrumentation arena.  Sterling has introduced a battery powered 2 full length PCI notebook lunchbox design unit that can meet the industrial applications of specialized PCI cards with our Commander-AT5 model. We are now offering a 400Hz power supply for the aviation industry. This option is available in many of our models.
