Rugged embedded computer family

Online Editor

MPL has introduced another ultra-compact computer family with a case dimensions of only 62 x 162 x 118mm, based on the 10nm Intel Atom x6000 processor. Despite the small footprint, the system still has MPL’s typical product characteristics, such as: robustness; the highest reliability; long-term availability of at least 10 years; lowest power consumption; extended temperature (-40°C to 85°C) capability; passive cooling (fanless); and easy internal expansion.

The CEC2x family comes with onboard NVMe mass storage (120GB, optional up to 1TB). The solution supports various other types of mass storage as well. The onboard m.2 Key-B slot can be used for multiple expansion options. The board is equipped with a high density expansion connector with PCIe, USB and I2C interfaces. This allows users to expand the CEC2x with MPL’s standard I/O board ( FIME) or semi-custom designed I/O board according to individual needs.

For maximum robustness the CEC2x is designed to operate in the range of -20°C to 60°C and optionally even at -40°C up to 85°C and withstand reverse polarity voltage, over-voltage, surge and burst voltages, as well as electromagnetic discharges targeting the MIL-STD-461E, IEC60945 and EN50155 standards.

The CEC2x expansion board (FIME) offers up to 3 x mPCIe slots,SATA, DVI-D, VGA, and 2 x 2.5Gbte LAN ports. This allows a maximum on customization for any I/O Boards and extending the system with additional interfaces. Additional interfaces (1553, ARIC, CAN, LTE and more) can be added over the mPCIe slots.

The new CEC20 family is available with a DIN-Rail or flange mount compact aluminium housing, a MIL housing with 38999 connectors according customer requirements, as a 19” rack solution, or as open frame with a cooling concept.
