GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas, Aug. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Innovative embedded computing leader WINSYSTEMS today unveiled an I/O-rich open-frame industrial panel PC for extreme operating temperatures. The rugged PPC-12-413 single board computer is unique among panel PCs in providing PC/104-Plus expansion ability while harnessing the power of the Intel® Atom™ E3845 CPU and offering up to 8G DDR3L of system memory. These capabilities are coupled with the Intel® Gen7 Graphics Driver and control for a 12.1-inch TN LCD panel with resistive touch screen.

«The fourth generation of WINSYSTEMS’ 12″ open-frame panel PC product line provides a ready upgrade path for current customers while supporting long-term availability for new designs,» said WINSYSTEMS’ Technical Sales Director George T. Hilliard. «Our new PPC3-12-413 panel PC enables designers of Mil/COTS and industrial control solutions to leverage extensive PC/104-Plus expansion capabilities without adding heating or cooling systems to their enclosures. It also negates the need for external or connected devices to provide connectivity to GPIO, serial or USB devices.»

The PPC3-12-413 maintains the same 12″ x 8.6″ x 1.90″ (31.12 cm x 21.85 cm x 4.82 cm) dimensions as earlier WINSYSTEMS 12″ panel PC offerings without sacrificing flexibility. It provides highly dependable, full operation in temperatures of -10C to +70C without having to attach an external heatsink or fan. Furthermore, the unit can perform in environmental conditions of -30C to +85C when the touch screen is not being used.

The high-performance design includes four multiprotocol serial ports supporting RS-232/422/485 interfaces, 48 GPIO lines with Event Sense, dual gigabit Ethernet controllers, seven USB 2.0 ports and an LPT port. Expansion options span PC/104-Plus, dual MiniCard sockets and one shared mSATA socket. It requires +5 volts DC input power.

«With its Intel® Atom™ E3800 processor and generous 8 gigs of system memory, our new open-frame panel PC is uniquely equipped to deliver sustained, highly reliable performance and enable the long product life cycles critically important for Industrial IoT and Mil/COTS applications,» Hilliard added. «From its industrial touch screen LCD panel to I/O devices, it is specifically designed and tested to withstand temperature extremes and challenging environments while providing abundant power for Windows 10 IoT Enterprise and Linux operating systems.»
