Page 1 of 1
A 12.1-inch open frame, color flat panel PC uses a 1.66 GHz single board computer (SBC) based on the Intel Atom processor. The PPC3-12 panel PC from WinSystems is a compact, ready-to-mount flat panel display subsystem that also includes a resistive touchscreen integrated into a chassis less than three inches deep. The open frame (i.e., without a front bezel) chassis permits flexible mounting of the system for OEMs and integrators with tight system integration and minimal space requirements. The PPC3-12 is shipped with a wired Ethernet connection plus expansion option for 802.11 wireless Ethernet and/or CDMA/GSM cellular modems. The unit will operate from -30° to +70°C without the need of a fan. The combination of embedded PC functionality, industrial-grade construction, small size and wide operating temperature range makes the unit attractive for medical, transportation, instrumentation, kiosks, industrial automation, security and control applications.
WinSystems offers a single core 1.66 GHz N455 and dual core 1.8 GHz D525 version of the SBC to serve as the computing and display engine for the Panel PC. Both SBCs support a full set of I/O interfaces including two Gigabit Ethernet ports, VGA and dual channel LVDS flat panel video, miniPCI connector to support wireless networking modules, eight USB 2.0 ports, four serial COM ports, 48 digital I/O lines, audio, LPT and PS/2 port for keyboard and mouse. The board also has PC/104 and PC/104-Plus connectors for support of additional off-the-shelf or user-designed specialty I/O modules. The system requires +12V and +5V DC and is RoHS compliant. The price configured with a 1.66 GHz single core N455-based single board computer and 2 Gbyte of system DRAM is $1,149.
