ADLINK Introduces MXE-1500 Series of High-Value Fanless Embedded Computers

Windows 7 support, rich and flexible I/O configuration, and superior graphics performance

Taiwan  ADLINK Technology, a global provider of computing solutions, today launched the MXE-1500 Series of fanless embedded computers. The successor to ADLINK’s best-selling MXE-1300 Series, the MXE 1500 offers richer I/O interfaces, and more flexible I/O configurations in the same compact enclosure. Intel® Celeron®(Braswell) processors, Intel’s last generation of CPU to support Windows 7, power the MXE-1500 to a 90% increase in image processing capabilities over the previous generation, and support three independent displays, altogether delivering an unequaled price/performance ratio and making the MXE-1500 an ideal choice for industrial automation applications and mass transit operators.

By featuring Intel® Celeron® N3160/N3060 processors, the latest generation of processors to support Windows 7, the MXE-1500 is able to power upgrades of existing control systems, while maintaining compatibility with existing software, benefiting a wide variety of operating environments.

For industrial applications with limited space that still demand rich I/O connectivity, the MXE-1500 Series’ compact footprint offers flexible configuration that dramatically simplifies deployment. Standard interfaces include four COM ports, three LAN ports, six USB (two 3.0 and four 2.0), and one internal USB 2.0 dongle. Users can flexibly choose LVDS or DP ports, and expand up to six COM ports, select optional amplifier, or add TPM2.0 according to specific requirements. This market-leading flexibility fully serves the needs of diverse industrial applications such as factory, machine, and logistics automation, enroute information systems, station gate controls, ticket vending machines, and many others. The MXE-1500 can further be quickly configured with isolated modular DC power supply to satisfy application requirements for maritime computers.

Based on the Intel® Celeron® N3160/ N3060 processor, the MXE-1500 series can support three independent displays. In addition, the graphic performance of quad core N3160 SoC processor has increased by 90% compared to the previous generation Intel Atom® E3845 processor and the computing power has increased by 20%. As for mass transit operators, the MXE-1500 is definitely the ideal choice offering great performance at value price.

“The market for compact fanless embedded computers is highly competitive, and the MXE-1500‘s flexible I/O expandability meets not only the basic operational requirements, but also takes competitive price point into consideration,” said Kerry Huang, Product Manager of ADLINK Embedded Platform and Module Business Unit. “Providing optional TPM 2.0, for example, handily satisfies the requirements of IoT-centric applications as well as banking industry and police and government installations with major data encryption priorities, while the optional LVDS display port answers the high-integration demands of industrial automation applications.”
