Matrix fanless embedded computer sports wireless optimisation capability, Intel AMT 7.0 support
I/O platforms provider ADLINK Technology has released new Matrix MXE-5300 series of rugged, quad core, fanless computers, based on the 2nd Generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processor and QM67 chipset.
The MXE-5300 is a Matrix fanless embedded computer, featuring processor performance, wireless optimisation capability, robust mechanical design and Intel AMT 7.0 support, which reportedly makes it ideal for intelligent transportation, in-vehicle multimedia and surveillance and factory automation applications.
The ADLINK’s MXE-5300 features include, mechanical and thermal design for performance enhancement; customised copper conduits to enhance thermal dissipation efficiency; memory and storage stabilisers to withstand the challenges of high-vibration environments; and an anodised aluminum alloy chassis to prevent corrosion.
In addition, the MXE-5300 also sports SSD storage devices which provide an operating temperature range of up to -20 degrees C to 70 degrees C for consistent performance of various applications in mission-critical and tough environments.
The MXE-5300 supports rich I/O interfaces, including 4 serial ports, 6 USB ports (2 USB 3.0), 4 isolated digital I/Os and 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports and also provides 2 Mini-PCIe and 1 USIM slots for wireless needs.
Furthermore, with the MXE-5300’s thumbscrew design, replacement or swapping of HDD and RAM/mini PCIe modules is easier, which reduces maintenance costs and increases flexibility.
ADLINK’s I/O Platform Product Center director Kenny Chang said ADLINK found that rapid growth in wireless technologies has boosted development of embedded applications, such as more efficient cargo management via reader and wireless relay to control centres.
"With our optional RF Matching Module, the MXE-5300 provides enhanced wireless performance to support 300m 802.11 a/b/g/n accessibility with a minimum bandwidth of 1Mbps, 100M operating range for Bluetooth 3.0 support, WCDMA for HSDPA CAT.10, HSUPA CAT.6, and reduced GPS cold start time of 25 seconds. The MXE-5300’s outstanding wireless optimization capability easily meets and exceeds customer needs," said Kenny Chang.
