AMBLER, Pa., 18 Dec. 2012. MEN Micro Inc. in Ambler, Pa., is introducing an enhanced version of the company's BC50M rugged box computer for rugged mobile applications such as aircraft, trains, commercial vehicles, as well as mobile machines and equipment.

The enhanced BC50M rugged computer uses the latest G-Series advanced processing unit (APU) from AMD. The modular BC50M (formerly the BC1) is scalable, and offers graphical performance and low power consumption.

The AMD Embedded G-T16R APU available in the BC50M offers an average power consumption for embedded computing of 2.3 Watts or a thermal design power (TDP) as low as 4.5 Watts. It feature AMD's 1.4 GHz dual-core Embedded G-T48N APU with Radeon HD 6310 graphics as well as the high-end Embedded G-T56N APU with Radeon HD 6320 graphics.

Two front panel-accessible DisplayPort channels, standard on the BC50M, support a maximum resolution of 2560 by 1600 pixels each with dedicated graphic cards and resolution to 1920 by 1200 pixels in combination with the AMD G-T16R APU.

Antenna connectors for two PCI Express MiniCard slots are also conveniently located on the front panel.

Equipped with 2 gigabytes of DDR3 SDRAM, the BC50M offers additional storage capabilities through an SD card and mSATA slot. A SATA hard disk or solid state drive can also be installed within the housing, if desired.

The box computer's aluminum housing with cooling fins provides conduction cooling for the internal electronics. This allows for fanless operation at temperatures from -40 to 70 degrees Celsius, with operation in 85 C possible for as long as 10 minutes.
