DFI introduces EC700-BT in-vehicle computer

May 28, 2014 - DFI introduces EC700-BT in-vehicle computer that supports the low-power and high-performance Intel Atom processor E3800 product family. A user can replace the hard drive with a DC to DC Car PC module that supports ACC feature, and instead use mSATA for data storage support.

The 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 Wi-Fi and 3G/GPRS via Mini PCIe slots. EC700-BT is equipped with 1 SIM socket and 2 Wi-Fi antenna holes making the system more suitable for environments that require wireless 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.

The EC700-BT’s expansive features offers a combination of low-power and high-performance embedded system for industrial automation and in-vehicle applications.
