July 15, 2014 -MPL announces CEC embedded computer based on the Intel Atom Processor E3800 Series with single, dual, and quad core CPUs The system will operate within a wide supply range of 8-36 Volts without a fan, heat-pipes, or case openings. Besides the low power consumption of 8-18 watts, the CEC offers a configurable power management to provide sleep currents down to 100µA, supporting wake capability (Ignition/RI). Various wake sources (Ignition signal, RS232 Ring indicator, or Wake On LAN), mass storage choices of mSATA, 2,5" HD, or soldered down eMMC opens a wide range of application options.
CEC is designed to operate in the range of -40°C up to 85°C and withstand reverse polarity voltage, overvoltage, surge and burst voltages, as well as electromagnetic discharges targeting the MIL-STD-461E, IEC60945 and EN50155 standards. To reach a maximum system stability, reliability, and availability (even in 24/7 operation) the CEC is designed for ECC-RAM and only uses ceramic capacitors to maximize the mean time between failure (MTBF) values. The single board solution consists of up to 5 x RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet ports, 3 x USB, 1 x USB Device, Display Port, 1 x RS232 interface, and a mPCIe/mSATA full size slot. An additional RS232 or RS422/RS485 can be added. The main board can also be offered as depopulated version. The RJ45 connectors can be replaced with M12 connectors or SFP cages. The CEC is expandable through a board interface which offers 2 x PCIe, 2 x HSIC, 2 x UART, SATA, SDIO, LPC and I2C. This allows a maximum on customization for any I/O Boards, allows to extend the system with additional interfaces. For example: GPIOs, additional serial ports, Gigabit Fiber, CAN , miniPCIe slots even PCI/104-Express port.
