Packaged Industrial PC with Intel Core Duo Processor
[PIP20: Intel Core Duo Processor]

The PIP20 is a powerful, highly integrated, robust and fanless Packaged Industrial PC, based on the Intel Core Duo Mobile Technology, out of the Embedded Roadmap for long-time availability. On the board integrated are features like 2x Gigabit Ethernet, 4 serial ports, and onboard soldered 1GB memory. The PIP20 represents a unique solution for today's demanding industrial needs and is available with basically unlimited options. It is designed to operate under extreme and normal conditions without the need of fans and without derating or throttling. The special board design results in a solution that is compact, maintenance free, noiseless, and rugged enough to be used in any application. The MPL PIPs are assembled according your needs even with your logo.

The PIP20 Specialities

Outstanding is the extreme low power consumption and high flexibility due to various expansions and housing concepts. The unit has a complete set of standard PC features as well as industrial features like 8-48 VDC input power, 4 serial ports (RS232/485). Additional GPS, WLAN, CAN, Sound, and UPS modules are available. Further the PIP20 can be expanded with PC/104-Plus, PCI, and PMC boards. Other unique features are:

These features make the PIP20 to the ideal solution for any application where a powerful embedded PC with a low power consumption is required. In addition, you benefit from Swiss Quality, ruggedness, long-term availability and flexibility. The PIP20 is used in vision, medicine, transportation systems, telecom, and industrial applications.

Extended Temperature Option

Reference Description
XTEST-3 extended temperature test -40° C up to +65° C

For deployment in harsh environments, the PIP20 can be ordered in an extended temperature version. Every system needs to pass various tests in a climate chamber to prove that it will perform flawless over the temperature range indicated.
Please note: In order to get a system that will operate under these conditions, all additional selected components like hard disks or extension cards have to be specified or tested for conformity to the extended temperature range.
