Fanless embedded system targets car PC applications

DFI launches the EC700-BT embedded system that supports the low-power and high-performance Intel Atom processor E3800. It is a perfect combination of impressive fashion design and excellent computing capability, bringing a new art concept to the industrial automation market. Aimed at Car PC application, you can replace the hard drive with a DC to DC Car PC module that supports ACC feature, and use mSATA for data storage support.

The powerful video processing capability integrated in the Intel Atom E3800 processor delivers high-performance multimedia applications through the dual independent display: 1 HDMI and 1 VGA or 1 DVI-I. It also improves 3D graphics performance with up to 5x more power over previous generation. In addition, the fanless system supports ECC memory providing improved data integrity and system reliability through automatic data correction.

Wireless communication is significantly important in vehicle applications. To ensure efficient communication, the system supports WiFi and 3G/GPRS via Mini PCIe slots. EC700-BT is equipped with 1 SIM socket and 2 WiFi antenna holes making the system more suitable for environments that require wireless applications. The EC700-BT’s expansive features offers an unbeatable combination of low-power and high-performance embedded system for industrial automation and in-vehicle applications.

EC700-BT takes full advantage of the Intel Atom E3800 processor which is packed with extensive I/O capabilities to provide increased mobile computing. The optional onboard eMMC and microSD socket are designed for additional storage in space-limited environments. The light weight system measures 180mm x 33mm x 121.2mm (W x H x D) and allows stacking a powerful battery backup module. It provides significant backup power whenever power failure occurs so that it can protect the system from electrical damage and reduce the risks of losing significant data. The fanless system’s thermal design provides sufficient heat dissipation making it ideal for a variety of applications.

Also announced by DFI, the plam-sized EC800 supports a wide range of processors, from the power efficient Intel Atom N2800/N2600 to high performance Intel Atom D2550. EC800 is equipped with 1 micro HDMI and 1 VGA or 1 DVI-I.  It allows stacking a powerful battery backup module that provides significant backup power whenever power failure occurs so that it can protect the systems from electrical damage and reduce the risks of losing significant data.

Combining rich connectivity and high performance, EC800 offers high speed interfaces for maximum storage. The CFast socket, which is easily accessible from the front panel, uses SATA interface that offers faster read/ write performance over the traditional CompactFlash card which uses IDE interface.
