Adlink debuts MXE-5500 Series of fanless embedded computers based on 6th Gen Intel Core processors

Adlink Technology released Tuesday its new Matrix MXE-5500 Series, featuring 6th generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors, and delivering high performance with robust construction, rich I/O, and easy device access, in a compact package.

The MXE-5500 Series sustains reliable performance at -20°C to 70°C, shock up to 100G, and vibration up to 5Grms, making it an optimal solution for ITS, surveillance, and industrial and logistic automation applications. Moreover, AFM (Adaptive Function Module) capability offers fast application-specific access for medium volume operations, reducing development time by up to 50 percent.

The MXE-5500 series accommodates rich I/O capabilities in a compact system size, with two DisplayPort, one DVI-I (supporting both DVI and VGA signals), four GbE by Intel network interface controllers, four each USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, eight isolated DI/O, and six COM ports, four of which are BIOS-configurable among RS-232/422/485.

In addition, with dual hot-swappable 2.5 SATA drive bays, one CFast port and one M2.2280, providing versatile storage options to a wide range of applications. Dual mini PCIe slots and USIM sockets empower the MXE-5500 as a communications hub for a variety of wireless connections, such as BT 4.0/WiFi and 3G.

Leveraging proprietary mechanical engineering, the MXE-5500 series continues to offer all the popular features of the popular Matrix E series, including cable-free construction, wide operating temperature ranges, and 5 Grms vibration resistance, having undergone, like all Adlink Matrix devices, testing for operational verification.

Combining superior processor performance, wireless capability, and rich, scalable I/O in a compact and robust package, the Adlink MXE-5500 is an ideal choice for a range of applications supporting transportation, in-vehicle multimedia and surveillance, and factory automation applications.

Adlink’s MXE-5500 Series simplifies ownership tasking such as installation and maintenance with single-side access I/O featuring 2x DisplayPort + DVI-I, 4x GbE, 6x COM, 4x USB 3.0+4x USB 2.0, and 8x isolated DI/O. Storage options are also extremely flexible with 2x 2.5“ hot-swappable SATA III, 1x M.2 2280, and 1x CFast w/ RAID support, easing storage maintenance burdens.

The company’s built-in SEMA (Smart Embedded Management Agent) utility provides a GUI (graphical user interface) and programming library for enhanced system management. The MXE-5500 kicks up flexibility with maximum reliability for storage utilization and function expansion.

Meeting the booming needs of mission-critical applications, systems must maximize tasking with the utmost dependability, all in a timely manner. In addition to abundant computing power, reliability and ruggedness are also critical requirements for harsh operating environments.

Adlink’s MXE-5500 embodies adaptive function module fulfilment for operations requiring fast customization, meeting demands for modular design with application-oriented I/O and domain-specific power supply. Reusable cross-generation compatibility and cross-platform (Intel Atom /Intel Core processor) functionality for scalability together simplify development challenges, reducing time-to-market and TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).
