New conductive-cooled computer

Online Editor

MPL has introduced another milestone of conductive-cooled Intel Xeon E-2276ME & i7-9850HE CPU systems with integrated NVIDIA RTX 5000 GPU cards with 3072 CUDA cores. The total solution requires no fan and can be operated in an environment of -20°C to 55°C.

MPL’s strength are computing and network solutions that work without the need of any active cooling. The company has provided passive cooling concepts for more than 35 years. Thousands of fanless solutions perform their services trouble free in the toughest environments for years.

The conductive cooling solutions from MPL are not achieved by using heat pipes. The concept starts with the design of the MPL CPU boards, the peripherals and the selection of parts. This method allows to mount the solution in any orientation a customer needs or has space for, compared to heat pipe solutions.

Only low power consumption and long-term available parts are selected. The heat-generating components are placed without any compromises on the back side of the base board. This is to connect all hot spots directly to the surface of the case, hence no heat is accumulated internally within the housing. To achieve this specific design, special know-how is needed to allow changes of the reference design Intel provides. Many available products are derived from the reference design of Intel, which are created for the commercial computers. Naturally, such designs are not ideal for rugged environments.

With its know-how and years of experience, MPL designed the MILCOTS4x-GPU, a conductive cooled Xeon i7 9th generation CPU system with integrated NVIDIA RTX 5000 GPU card (other GPU cards can be used in place of the RTX 5000.) The D38999 MIL connectors are soldered on special MPL designed rigid-flex PCBs.

The MILCOTS4x-GPU has been designed to withstand any harsh environments and extreme temperature conditions. Particular precautions during the design have been taken that the entire system EMC is within the MIL-STD-461 standards and MIL-STD-810 can be met.
