BACKPLANE Systems Technology has announced the release of Digital-Logic's Microspace-PC40 (MPC40) one of the smallest and quietest PCs for industrial and professional applications.
The new MPC40 is based on the Intel Pentium M 738 processor with 1.4GHz, 2.045k L2 cache and 400MHz FSB. This is a performance comparable with a 2.8GHz Intel Pentium 4 processor.
The power saving function of the Intel Pentium M processor provides a dynamic CPU-clock adaptation to the application. In the slowest modus the CPU works with 600MHz, so the whole system only consumes a typical power of 35 Watt.
The MPC40 features a video memory of up to 64MB. The video controller features two different video outputs to feed two different monitors, one VGA (CRT) and one DVI, with the same or with different images. The PC's main memory is 512MB DDR RAM and can be expanded up to 1GB.
The MPC40 features five high speed USB V2.0 ports, one serial interface, one parallel interface, two IEEE-1394, a LAN 100/10-Base-T port, three stereo sound outputs (six channels) and a SPDif digital sound output with six channels and one stereo input. A MiniPCI expansion is available.
A 2.5" 20GB (max. 80GB) hard disk and a CD-RW/DVD-R drive are integrated into the PC. The hard disk features anti-vibration rubber cushioning. The MPC40 has a voltage of 10V to 30V making it suitable for battery-powered systems.
The Microspace-PC40 is suitable for multimedia applications, security and surveillance systems, game panels, media servers, web server, and image processing computer applications.
