ADLINK Technology, Inc. announced its new Matrix MXC-2300 fanless expandable embedded computer equipped with the latest Intel® Atom™ quad-core processor E3845.

The MXC-2300 delivers impressive computing performance at minimal power consumption, along with advancements in visual processing capabilities provided by Intel® Gen 7 HD graphic technology (Ivy Bridge GPU). In addition, built-in dual-port isolated CAN bus with SJA1000 controller delivers bus arbitration and error detection with real-time data transmission, minimizing data loss and ensuring system reliability.

Continuing the singular expansion principles of the Matrix MXC series, the MXC-2300 sustains versatile expandability from three PCI/PCIe expansion slots accommodating a variety of I/O cards. As a result, the MXC-2300 series presents an intelligent computing platform with enhanced reliability, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness, ideal for machine automation, machine vision, intelligent transportation systems, maritime automation, and energy providers.

Significant computational performance and energy efficiency 
The latest Intel® Atom™ processor E3845 system-on-chip (SoC) kicks up performance and cost efficiency with less power consumption than the previous generation. Outstanding 3D graphics and enhanced Full HD video acceleration with Intel® Gen 7 HD graphic technology team with advancements in visual processing for faster conversion, 3D graphics, and powerful media acceleration.

Integrated communications 
The MXC-2300’s built-in dual-port isolated CAN bus accelerates inter-device communication, easily regulating function across multiple modules. Among the significant benefits are the CAN bus technology’s price/performance ratio and built-in 16-CH isolated DI and 16-CH isolated DO empowering general industrial control and boosting data transfer speeds.

Flexible expandability with versatile I/O 
The MXC-2300 provides three PCI/PCIe expansion slots and one mini-PCIe socket, all in a compact enclosure for fast and flexible system extension. Abundant I/O capability with one USB 3.0 and four 2.0 ports, four COM ports, and two Intel® Gigabit Ethernet ports with teaming function offer exceptional reliability for increased interconnectivity and interdependency.

The MXC-2300 maintains the established market superiority of ADLINK’s Matrix line in ruggedized construction, with operating shock tolerance up to 50 G and extended operating range of -20°C to 70°C. In addition to employing HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Test) scientific testing methods to ensure maximum reliability and long-term availability, the MXC-2300 can achieve MTBF (mean time between failures) of 420,000 hours, making it indispensable for mission-critical applications.

“Utilizing Intel’s core computing strengths, their recent innovations in graphics capabilities, and the power efficiency that comes with the SoC design of the latest Intel® Atom™ processors, ADLINK has developed an intelligent computing platform improving dramatically on previous series, with twice the computing power of ADLINK’s MXC-4000 and six times that of our MXC-2000, with no increase in power consumption. This makes the MXC-2300 the most reliable, flexible and cost-effective choice for intelligent automation in countless applications and environments,” said Kenny Chang, director of ADLINK’s I/O platform product segment.
