PIP7 - Pentium III and no Fan!

[PIP7: Pentium III and no Fan!]

General Description

The PIP7 is a highly integrated and robust Packaged Industrial PC with the low power Pentium III 400MHz processor out of Intel's Embedded Program. The PIP7 complements the existing PIP Product family (PowerPC and x86) that represents a unique solution for today's demanding industrial needs. PIPs are available in various options and are built into a extreme compact EMI/RFI sealed aluminum chassis. They can be operated under extreme as well as under normal conditions without the need of fans.

A selection of PIP7 Specialities

is the extreme low power consumption of less than 15 W. The solution includes a complete set of PC/AT features as well as special industrial capabilities like 4 serial ports, USB, CAN, LAN a 8-28 VDC Power Supply, ZV port and more.

Other unique features are

Those features make the PIP7 to ideal the solution for any application where a high power architecture with a low power consumption is required. But high quality, very rugged, small size, universal expandable Industrial PC solution is a need as well. The product can be used in application like the medicine, transportation systems, hand held devices, telecom or any other industrial application just to mention a few.

Extended Temperature Option

For deployment in harsh environments, the PIP7 can be ordered in an extended temperature version. Every system needs to pass various tests in a environmental 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.

Reference Description
XTEST-2 extended temperature test -40° C up to +75° C
