AMD Embedded G-Series APU, -40 to +85°C Operating
The BC50R is a maintenance-free box computer that has been designed, e.g., for data acquisition applications in rugged environments in vehicles, e.g. in trains, commercial vehicles, mobile machines or ships. All interfaces are implemented on rugged M12 connectors (USB, digital input and output, Gigabit Ethernet, CAN and legacy serial I/O). The housing is compliant to the IP65 protection class.
On the inside, the system offers two PCI Express® Mini card slots with two SIM card slots for WLAN, GNSS or 3G/4G functionality. The necessary antenna connectors can be made available at the front panel. It is powered by an AMD Embedded G-Series APU (Accelerated Processing Unit), the T48N, running at 1.4 GHz. The use of the Embedded G-Series makes for high scalability in CPU (single/dual core) performance.
The BC50R is equipped with 2 GB of DDR3 SDRAM and offers SD card and mSATA slots. The system is designed for fanless operation at temperatures from -40 to +70°C (+85°C for up to 10 minutes), its special aluminium housing with cooling fins serves as a heat sink for the internal electronics and in this way provides conduction cooling. The BC50R supports a 24 VDC and 36 VDC nom. (10 to 50.4 V) class S2 power supply in compliance with EN 50155 or power supplies which comply with ISO 7637-2 (E-mark for automotive) (nominal input voltage 24 V) or with EN 60945 (ship). The power can be switched on and off using an ignition signal on the power connector, and a shutdown-delay time after switching off the power can be adjusted by software.
The combination of the various CPU/GPU options with the available selection of external interfaces (realized via separate graphics and I/O interface boards within the system) makes for an extremely flexible system design that can quickly be tailored to a vast number of applications.
