BC50F - Rugged Box PC for Industrial Automation with AMD G-Series (Product Discontinued)

The BC50F is a fanless, maintenance-free box computer that has been designed for real-time Ethernet applications in industrial environments, e.g. for machine control, robotics or vehicles.

It offers two real-time Ethernet interfaces implemented using a Hilscher PCI Express Mini Card.

It is powered by an AMD Embedded G-Series APU (Accelerated Processing Unit), the T48N, running at 1.4 GHz. The G-Series combines low-power CPUs and advanced GPUs, in this case an AMD Radeon HD 6310, into a single embedded device.

The use of the Embedded G-Series makes for high scalability in CPU (single/dual core) and graphics performance (various Radeon GPUs or none at all).

The BC50F 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 0 to +60°C, its special aluminum housing with cooling fins serves as a heat sink for the internal electronics and in this way provides conduction cooling.

The BC50F supports up to two DisplayPort interfaces with a maximum resolution of 2560x1600 each. The DisplayPort interfaces and all other I/O are available at the unit's front panel on standard connectors like USB, 9-pin D-Sub (optional serial I/O), RJ45 (Gigabit Ethernet) and DisplayPort.

The BC50F comes with its own integrated 24 VDC nom. (16 to 36 V) power supply.

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.
