DFI EC800 Palm-Sized Fanless Embedded System Targets In-Vehicle Application

2013/01/02 (UTC-6)

DFI® today launches the industrial grade EC800, DFI's first ultra-compact palm-sized fanless embedded system. Powered by the Intel® Atom™ processor, its low power consumption design offers energy-efficient performance ideal for the embedded computing market.

Low Power Consumption
EC800 supports a range of Intel® Atom™ processors, from the power efficient Intel® Atom™ N2800/N2600 processor for low power solution application to the enhanced Intel® Atom™ D2550 processor for applications that require maximum performance.

Maximum Storage
EC800 offers high speed interfaces for maximum storage. The CFast socket, which is easily accessible from the front panel, uses SATA interface that offers faster read/write performance over the traditional CompactFlash card which uses IDE interface. For additional storage, a Mini PCIe slot is available for installing an mSATA module. CFast and mSATA are significantly smaller than regular SATA drives and is therefore ideal for space-limited applications.

Enhanced Graphics and Video
The powerful video processing capability integrated in the Intel® Atom™ processor delivers high performance multimedia applications through the DVI-I interface. The graphics engine supports enhanced media and graphics with full HD, and supports display resolution up to 1920x1200.

Wireless Communication
Wireless communication is significantly important in vehicle solutions. To ensure efficient communication, the system supports Wi-Fi and 3G/GPRS via optional modules. It is also equipped with a SIM slot and 2 antenna holes making the system suitable for environments that require wireless applications.

Wide Range Power Input
EC800 comes standard with 9~24V wide range power input voltage.It is capable of supporting up to 36V (via the optional battery pack) for in-vehicle applications.

Dual Intel® Gigabit LAN
By utilizing 2 Intel® Gigabit LAN, it doubles network capabilities and reduces CPU workload thus offering better network reliability. This makes the EC800 ideal for network-intensive applications.

Robust Design
EC800 leads the market with its unique thermal design for optimized cooling. Due to the low power consumption of the processor and the system's mechanical design, it is able to work in temperatures ranging from 0~60oC and supports extended temperature from -20~70oC as an option. With DDR3 memory onboard and its ruggedized cable-free assembly, it protects the system against shock and vibration.

Rich I/O Capability
EC800 takes full advantage of the Intel® NM10 Express chipset which is packed with high performance I/O capabilities to provide increased mobile computing. The 2 DB-9 ports support RS232/422/485 with RS485 supporting auto direction control. One of the DB-9 ports also supports isolated 4-bit DIO for device controls ( selectable via a jumper ). 4 USB 2.0 ports at the front panel provide easy access for inserting USB devices.

Size Matters
With dimensions at 161mm x 32mm x 108mm, the slim and sleek design of this compact system will fit perfectly into almost any type of vehicle and space-critical environments.

Rechargeable Battery Pack
Designed for vehicle application, the optional battery pack is rechargeable and supports wide power input voltage from 9~36V. This ensures continuous connectivity and safe operation even on extreme vibration and shock while on the road.

DFI® has extensive long-term experience in the design and production of advanced technology and high quality embedded systems. EC800 is the perfect solution for applications requiring power computing while maintaining low power consumption in a compact size system equipped with rich I/O and expansion. It is ideal for applications such as vehicle, factory automation, and self-service kiosk.
