October 3, 2014 - Amplicon announces Impact-E 430 and Impact-E 423.embedded PCs packaged in a lightweight aluminum chassis, designed for optimal heat dissipation. The Impact-E 400 series allows for easy access card expansion in an embedded fanless system. Capable of housing cards up to 220mm in either PCI and/or PCIe configurations. The Impact-E 423 has been optimised for PCI and mPCIe expansion. This unit allows three primary PCI cards to run at PCI standard 2.3 and two mPCIe for modular expansion. The Impact-E 430 offers further PCIe expansion, totalling two, with two PCI lanes. Both the Impact-E 430 and Impact-E 423 offer PCIe x16 revision 3.0 allowing for optimal graphics card usage, whilst retaining backward compatibility with older revisions. The Impact-E 400 series can house up to 16GB DDRIII memory enabling the systems to handle a range of memory intensive applications.
Offering both the Intel Ivy Bridge processor and the QM77 chipset, giving high bandwidth SATA III, Intel HD Graphics 4000 and USB 3.0 for a powerful small form factor IPC. SATA III allows for faster data transfer speeds of up to 6Gb/s, this ensures the data bus bottleneck which previously hindered data transfer speeds is now a thing of the past. The Impact-E 400 series is able to house two HDD or SSD 2.5” format, allowing for RAID 1, 0 and JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks). The Intel HD Graphics 4000, allows for high-resolution across a multi display output configuration using DVI-I, DVI-D and HDMI up to a maximum resolution of 1920*1200, or converting the DVI-I output to analogue VGA giving a maximum of 2048*1536.
