Rugged Box PC for Industrial Automation with AMD G-Series
It is powered by an AMD Embedded G-Series APU (Accelerated Processing Unit), the T48N, running at 1.4 GHz. The G-Series combines low-power CPUs and advanced GPUs, in this case an AMD Radeon HD 6310, into a single embedded device. The use of the EmbeddedG-Series makes for high scalability in CPU (single/dual core) and graphics performance (various Radeon GPUs or none at all).
The BC50I is equipped with 2 GB of DDR3 SDRAM and offers SD card and mSATA slots. A SATA hard-disk/solid-state drive can be installed within the housing as an option. The system is designed for fanless operation at temperatures from -40 to +70°C, its special aluminum housing with cooling fins serves as a heat sink for the internal electronics and in this way provides conduction cooling.
The BC50I supports up to two DisplayPort interfaces with a maximum resolution of 2560x1600 each. The DisplayPort interfaces and all other I/O are available at the unit's front panel on standard connectors like USB, 9-pin D-Sub (optional serial I/O), RJ45 (Gigabit Ethernet) and DisplayPort.
On the inside, the system offers one PCI Express Mini card slot with a SIM card slot. The necessary antenna connectors can be made available at the front panel. The BC50I comes with its own integrated 24 VDC nom. (16 to 36 V) power supply.
The combination of the various CPU/GPU options with the available selection of external interfaces (realized via separate graphics and I/O interface boards within the system) makes for an extremely flexible system design that can quickly be tailored to a vast number of applications.
