Small Microspace PCs
With their new MPC20 and MPC21 Microspace-PCs, Swiss-based Digital-Logic is now offering the smallest personal computers based on the AMD Geode LX800 processor (500MHz), measuring just 160mmW x 105mmD x 27mmH. Main features include 100/10Base-T-Ethernet LAN ports, four USB 2.0 interfaces, sound, VGA and expansion by MiniPCI (WLAN) and PCI/104 (CAN, COM and field bus). A CompactFlash disk or optional 40MB 2.5” hard disk serve as boot media.
The MPC20/21 may be used stand-alone, wall mounted or mounted on a DIN-Rail. Both systems have no cooling fan; instead they rely solely on passive cooling techniquesm making them ideal for cost-effective long-term operation in industrial and commercial applications. Typical applications are POI/POS, firewall, embedded control, security, and HMI.
The MPC20/21s run with all PC-compatible operating systems, and work with all application software written for PCs. They are supplied by a voltage of 10V to 30V DC, and so can be used in switch cabinets, as well as in battery-powered systems. For connection to the supply voltage, a 110/240V power supply adapter is available. Designed for low power consumption (typically 8 watts), the board operates within the temperature range of 0°C to +60°C, although the systems are available for an extended operating temperature range of –40°C to +70°C on request.
