Rugged box computer with AMD microprocessor for avionics and railway applications introduced by MEN Micro



AMBLER, Pa., 21 Dec. 2011. MEN Micro Inc. in Ambler, Pa., is introducing the BC1 rugged computer box with AMD processor for railway, mission-critical, mobile, and avionics applications that require low power consumption and high graphics performance. The rugged computer is designed to connect two or more displays, and has modular construction that enables users to configure it to a wide variety of rugged applications, company officials say.


Powering the box computer is AMD's integrated T52R Accelerated Processing Unit (APU), which integrates the Radeon HD 6310 graphics processor and a 1.5 GHz single-core x86 CPU. Six other AMD processors are available.

The unit comes with two DisplayPorts, each offering a maximum resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels. The first port can be configured for a USB connection to allow for touch functionality on the display, while the second port comes standard with a USB channel.

 


 

The DisplayPorts, as well as all I/O, from the HD audio and Gigabit Ethernet ports to the USB 2.0 and SA-Adapter slots, are accessible via the front panel. The standard front panel interfaces, including USB, 9-pin D-Sub, 8-pin M12 and DisplayPort, can be configured individually.

Internal interfaces include two PCI Express Mini Card slots with two SIM card slots for functions such as WIFI, WiMAX, GPS, HSDPA, EDGE, LTE, and UMTS. The first Mini Card slot also can switch between the two SIM card slots via the antenna connection on the front panel.

One gigabyte of soldered DDR3 SDRAM system memory as well as a pre-installed two gigabytes of SD card memory and an mSATA slot with transfer rates as fast as three gigabits per second are standard, with an optional SATA hard disk or solid state drive featuring transfer rates as fast as six gigabits per second are available for installation within the housing.

Four LEDs indicate status of the Ethernet link and system activity, while two more are used for general board status. The unit weighs 3.9 pounds and measures 9.8 by 8.6 by 1.7 inches, with fanless, conduction-cooled operation from -40 to 70 degrees Celsius.
