Embedded Computer Systems & Motherboards for Industrial Automation Tasks in Houston
Two of the chief driving forces behind the design and development of many embedded computer systems are the industrial automation and process control industries in Houston. Automation tasks demand specialized equipment that boasts rugged, durable designs with a variety of I/O and communication interfaces, high performance with high power efficiency, small form factors and the ability to withstand harsh environments.
The acronym SWAP (size, weight and power) is utilized to describe the various challenges that encounter the industrial automation and process control industries. At DFI Technologies, we use the SWAP system to identify the specific negotiables that shape the design and manufacture of a wide variety of equipment. We know that the Houston industrial automation and process control markets are continually growing and demand ever-more sophisticated solutions. We are proud to create high-quality embedded computing solutions for Houston companies.
Houston Embedded Computer Systems Features
It’s essential that the Houston embedded computer systems used by the process control and industrial automation markets feature processors that are able to perform a variety of demanding tasks while maintaining overall power efficiency. We address the high-efficiency and thermal demands of these Houston embedded systems by creating rugged motherboards, specialized packaging and fanless capabilities.
We’re proud to have depth of experience in meeting an array of challenges posed by the industrial automation and process control industries in Houston. At DFI Tech, we’re able to create systems that boast extended storage and operating temperatures, the ability to withstand high vibration, and resistance to water, dust (IP65 and above) and moisture. We can create embedded systems in Houston that perform at a high level while maintaining small form factors.
The Evolution of Embedded Computers in the Process Control & Industrial Automation Markets in Houston
The embedded computing systems and motherboards used by the process control and industrial automation industries in Houston have changed significantly in the last decade as demand has expanded from devices that can handle simple monitoring and control tasks to systems that can meet the need for Human Machine Interface (HMI). At DFI Tech, we’re proud to address these demands by integrating both touchscreens and graphics capabilities into our embedded motherboards and computers for process control and industrial automation in Houston.
We know that the need for flexible system design is also driven by an ever-growing demand for systems that boast security features and industrial data bus support, while also supporting high-speed wireless and wired communication simultaneously. We use many I/O interfaces within this application space. Our designers have experience creating embedded industrial automation solutions in Houston that offer instrument support, sensor support, isolation, imaging and control. We focus on including functional safety features (IEC61508) and low power usage when manufacturing such systems.

Houston is the most populated city in Texas and ranks number four in the United States. Houston was founded in 1836. The city was named after General Sam Houston, who had commanded and won the Battle of San Jacinto 25 miles east of where Houston was established.
Houston grew to be very popular as it served as a commercial and railroad hub for exporting cotton. It did not take long for Houston to become the railroad center of Texas. This remained a huge part of the Houston economy until just the early 1900’s when oil was discovered at the Spindle top oil field. This discovery prompted the development of the petroleum industry in Texas. In addition to the expansion of the oil industry in Houston, the city accelerated the production of a viable deep-water port to increase the economical value of the city even further. By 1914, Woodrow Wilson opened the deep-water port of Houston.
With a deep-water port, access to oil fields, and great access through the railroads, it’s easy to see why Houston grew to the size it is today. The weather in Houston is quite warm, and the need for air conditioning prompted the expansion into energy solutions. This further led to yet another industry Houston has it’s hand in, and made it very attractive as a home for the Command Center for NASA.
