ADLINK Technology has launched the MXE-1500 Series of fanless embedded computers. The successor to ADLINK's MXE-1300 Series, the MXE 1500 offers I/O interfaces, and more flexible I/O configurations in the same compact enclosure. Intel Celeron(Braswell) processors, Intel’s last generation of CPU to support Windows 7, power the MXE-1500 to a 90% increase in image processing capabilities over the previous generation, and support three independent displays.
The MXE-1500 is a suitable choice for industrial automation applications and mass transit operators. By featuring Intel Celeron N3160/N3060 processors, the latest generation of processors to support Windows 7, the MXE-1500 is able to power upgrades of existing control systems, while maintaining compatibility with existing software, benefiting a variety of operating environments.
For industrial applications with limited space that still demand rich I/O connectivity, the MXE-1500 Series’ compact footprint offers flexible configuration that simplifies deployment. Standard interfaces include four COM ports, three LAN ports, six USB (two 3.0 and four 2.0), and one internal USB 2.0 dongle.
Users can choose LVDS or DP ports, and expand up to six COM ports, select optional amplifier, or add TPM2.0 according to specific requirements.
This flexibility fully serves the needs of diverse industrial applications such as factory, machine, and logistics automation, enroute information systems, station gate controls, ticket vending machines, and many others. The MXE-1500 can further be configured with isolated modular DC power supply to satisfy application requirements for maritime computers.
Based on the Intel Celeron N3160/ N3060 processor, the MXE-1500 series can support three independent displays. In addition, the graphic performance of quad core N3160 SoC processor has increased by 90% compared to the previous generation Intel Atom E3845 processor and the computing power has increased by 20%.
"The market for compact fanless embedded computers is highly competitive, and the MXE-1500‘s flexible I/O expandability meets not only the basic operational requirements, but also takes competitive price point into consideration," said Kerry Huang, Product Manager of ADLINK Embedded Platform and Module Business Unit.
"Providing optional TPM 2.0, for example, satisfies the requirements of IoT-centric applications as well as banking industry and police and government installations with major data encryption priorities, while the optional LVDS display port answers the high-integration demands of industrial automation applications."
