Rugged 9th Gen Intel CPU built in 19" Rack Housing
Walter is developing a custom solution.
He has been with MPL AG for over 10 years. In this time, Walter has gained a lot of experience in the embedded world.
Successfully completing a project is in Walter's DNA.
In this newsletter, MPL presents a proven fanless Embedded Computer Family based on the 9th generation Intel processors (PIP40 Family)
built in 19" rack housings. The solution shown below is mounted into a 2U housing. Other sizes of housing (ie. 1U) can
be taken into account according to customer requirements. In the 2U solution we can even build two CPU boards or
add a managed switch, XMC or MXM expansions. Decades of experience (since 1985) in engineering and manufacturing
extremely robust embedded solutions, made the PIP40 Family as 19" rack solution possible. The PIP40 Family is EN50155
as well as IEC60945 tested and approved.
The solution is ideal for railways application, maritime, defense, medical or simply in every application that needs to
be supported for 10 years or more. The PIP40 Family comes with Intel CPUs as Celeron, i3, i7, as well as Xeon. The solution
will be available beond 2034.
The solution shown consists of
- Processor Xeon E-2276ME
- 64GB registered ECCDDR4
- Display Port (DP) up to 4096x2160 (DP) & DVI-D
- 8x USB 3.1 ports
- 1x m.2 Key-A (USB2.0, PCIe 2×1, up to 3042
module size, WIFI, …)
- 1x m.2 Key-B (USB3.0, up to 3042 module size, LTE, …)
- 1x m.2 Key-M (SATA or PCIe 4×1, up to 2280 module size)
- 2x mPCIe/mSATA Mini Card socket with SATA 3.0 & USB 2.0
- 2x SATA 3.0 / 1x NVMe or SATA SSD
- Input voltage 9-36 VDC (DC/DC converter)
- Up to 20 LAN ports (intergrated switch)
- 8x RS232 or RS422/485
- 2x CAN
- Expansion capabilities for GPGPU on MXM, PCIe
(eg. RAID, high end graphics or XMC modules)
Next to the announced 19" rack housing, the PIP40 Family is also available in the MPL standard housing with DIN-Rail or
flange mounting. Further enclosures with IP67 are available in the standard MPL program. We also offer an open frame version
(CPU board on cooling plate), which is best suited for installation in existing cabinets and tight areas.
MPL's component stock guarantees repairs for up to 20 years. Extended temperature ranges can be fulfilled and are tested
in MPL's own climatic chambers according customer's request.
The PIP40 Family as well as the housings are 100% engineered & manufactured by MPL AG in Switzerland and meet or exceed
the most common standards. Particular references are: EN 55022, EN 55024, EN 61000, MIL-STD-461E, EN 60068, EN 50155,
MIL-STD-810G, EN 60601, EN 60950, CE, IEC 60945, IACS and E10.
