Adlink launches Revolutionary Series of Rugged I/O Platforms

Adlink announced the launch of Matrix MXE-1000 and MXC-2000 series of rugged and fanless I/O platforms based on the Intel Atom N270. The Atom-based Matrix series offers fanless and cable-free design, -20°C to 70°C operating temperature range. The Adlink MXE-1000 provides embedded I/O functions and the Adlink MXC-2000 series offers configurable PCI and/or PCI Express slots. The MXE-1000 and MXC-2000 series include a specifically-designed single board computer to fit the respective fanless chassis that all heat-producing components come in direct contact with the aluminum shell. This allows for the widest operating temperature range among all off-the-shelf fanless computers.

In addition to general I/O connectors such as Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), COM, and USB ports, the MXE-1000 series also provides dedicated GbE and 1394b interfaces to support cameras for outdoor or in-vehicle video/imaging applications. The unique design of the MXC-2000 series enables very simple card installation and maintenance compared to other similar offerings on the market. PCI and/or PCI Express cards can be effortlessly installed or removed simply by loosening one screw.
