DSM Computer presents with the N1-QM67 embedded system its first member of the second-generation NanoServer family in Hall 1, Booth 254 at the embedded world trade show. The high-performance industrial computer integrates an Intel Core processor of the second generation and the energy-saving Intel QM67 mobile chip set. The N1-QM67 so provides high performance while offering optimized energy efficiency compared with the previously available NanoServer models.
The compact IPC N1-QM67 box with the dimensions 204 x 226 x 79 mm provides a free PCI Express™ x16 slot for expansion with a graphic card or a frame-grabber. This makes the system also ideal for demanding image-processing tasks. A short Mini PCI Express™ x1 slot is also available internally. The DVI-I, DVI-D and HDMI interfaces allow the connection of high-resolution displays that supply three independent images to three separate monitors.
In addition to the standard variant that integrates an Intel® Core™ i5-2510E processor with two cores, the NanoServer® N1-QM67 can optionally be supplied in further variants with Intel® Core™ i7-2710QE (four cores) or Intel® Core™ i3-2330E (two cores). As low-cost model, the embedded system can optionally be equipped with an Intel® Celeron™ G810 processor. The two Intel® Core™ i5-2510E and i7-2710QE CPUs integrate the Intel® Turbo Boost technology with which the processor is automatically over-clocked for applications that use just one core. Thanks to the implemented Intel® AMT 7.0 Active Management Technology, the high-end computer can be booted, managed and serviced remotely. The fast DDR3 RAM main memory can be expanded to a maximum capacity of 8 GB.
Together with the six USB 2.0 (four external, two internal), two USB 3.0 and four serial ports (three RS232, one RS232/RS422/RS485) interfaces, four Serial ATA for SATA II and two Serial ATA for SATA III devices are available as internal interfaces. In addition to two 1000 Base-T LAN interfaces, Wireless LAN 802.11 is also supported on request. The robust industrial housing provides space for two 2.5 inch hard disk drives (HDD) 24/7 (SATA II 300) or solid state drives (SSDs). One hard disk is directly accessible from a screwed-on base cover; the second hard disk is accessible from the housing cover. On customer request, a third hard disk can also be installed.
The N1-QM67 supports the Windows® XP, Windows® 7 (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows® Embedded Standard 7 and Windows® Embedded POSReady 7 operating systems. Support is also provided for Linux drivers. For embedded operating systems, the NanoServer® is also available with a flash device.
The flexible industrial computer obtains its power directly from a 12 V / 24 V DC power input (wide-range) or an external 100 - 240 V AC power pack. The active cooling of the system permits 0° - 50° C as rated operating temperature range.
