Amplicon release high performance Intel i5/i7 fanless system

by donpedro

Amplicon’s Industrial Computing division has released the Impact-E 70 series, their next generation of rugged fanless embedded systems. The range combines high performance Intel i5 and i7 class processors within a compact, and virtually maintenance free system.
The Impact-E 72 and Impact-E 73 are the newest models in the Amplicon Impact-E rugged embedded system range; taking fanless performance to the next level by providing a processing performance of up to 3 times faster than previous models within the same range, making them ideal for today’s cutting edge industrial applications.
The newly released systems are available with a scalable range of Intel mobile 32nm processors ranging from the entry level 1.86GHz Celeron, to the flagship 2.66GHz Core i7. All processors are selected from Intel’s embedded roadmap thereby guaranteeing long term availability, and has DDR3 memory fitted as standard to further enhance the performance of the systems
Housed within a rugged aluminium enclosure, when equipped with the solid state drive option the system is extremely resistant to shock and vibration; it also features a wide operating temperature and voltage input, making the system a versatile choice for a range of harsh environments.
Remote system management is provided by Intel iAMT. The system can be interrogated, reset, power-cycled or a full system recovery undertaken across a network connection. Together with an Amplicon wireless solution, systems can be deployed at remote locations allowing them to be fully serviced remotely, negating costly site visits.
Despite the compact form-factor the system features an exceptional range of expansion and interface support, with dual eSATA for high bandwidth connectivity to external storage, dual gigabit Ethernet, versatile I/O with 4 Com Ports, 4 x GPIO and options for dual PCI and PCI / PCIe expansion card options.

‘We are very excited by the Impact E-70 series, it provides a level of processing performance not previously seen in fanless embedded systems, and is equipped with a range of features to suit a wide variety of mobile and industrial applications‘ commented Richard Cobden, Amplicon Engineering Manager.
