North Atlantic NIU2A Nano Interface Unit

  • Supports Two NAI Smart I/O Function Modules
  • Minimized SWaP Footprint
  • Ethernet Connectivity


The North Atlantic NIU2A Nano Interface Unit is a small, rugged, low-power, self-contained, multifunction I/O system. It is powered by an integrated MIL-STD-704A power supply. The NIU2A can be fitted with up to two smart NAI Configurable Open Systems Architecture (COSA) function modules. The NIU2A is factory configured to operate as a standalone Ethernet connected Remote Interface Unit (RIU) or optionally can be configured with access to the ARM Cortex-A9 processors operating as an integrated SBC, fully managing the I/O and a user software application. The NIU2A is configured with standard 10/100/1000Base-T (GbE) Ethernet ports or two optional 1 Gb 850 nm fiber-optic ports. Additionally, there is an RS-232 port for maintenance/diagnostic or configuration interface. Ideally suited for rugged Mil-Aero applications, the NIU2A delivers off-the-shelf solutions that accelerate deployment of SWaP-optimized systems in air, land and sea applications.

The NIU2A rugged multifunction I/O platform provides scalable Ethernet or other communications interface linked I/O enabling networks including on-board vehicle, marine and aircraft platforms to field and expand digital network architectures for network-centric operations. With dual function module capability, the NIU2A has the capability of being programmed as an I/O and communications protocol converter. The NIU2A integrates seamlessly within NAI's COSA family providing the most modular, agile and rugged COTS portfolio of embedded smart modules, I/O boards, Single Board Computers, Power Supplies and Ruggedized Systems.

Product Family: NIU2A, N1U2A

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.
