MEN Mikro Elektronik is launching the BC50M box computer that is based on the latest AMD Embedded G-Series Accelerated Processing Unit (APU). The robust and maintenance-free BC50M (formerly called the BC1) is based on an innovative modular design that offers flexible display and I/O options with optimal performance for mobile applications such as use in trains, commercial vehicles, aircraft and mobile machines.

As a new option, the BC50M can be equipped with the new AMD Embedded G-T16R APU with a power consumption of just 2.3W on average or 4.5W thermal design power (TDP). This new system complements the existing 1.4GHz dual-core AMD Embedded G-T48N APU with AMD Radeon HD 6310 Graphics standard system, as well as the high-end AMD Embedded G-T65N APU with AMD Radeon HD 6320 Graphics version.

Mike Greig, director of product marketing at AMD Embedded Solutions, comments: "The new AMD Embedded G-T16R APU targets very low power, small form factor and cost-sensitive designs while maintaining the computing and graphics performance embedded customers demand. In combination with the robust and fanless design, MEN's box and display computers are an attractive solution, especially for temperature-critical, mobile graphics applications."

If an application requires more or less graphical performance and power consumption, product designers can select any model of AMD Embedded G-Series APU for use in the system. Thanks to the modular design of the BC50M box computer, the interfaces can be customised with minimal overhead for even greater system flexibility.

The two DisplayPort channels of the standard BC50M box computer model support a maximum resolution of 2560x1600 pixels each with dedicated graphic cards and up to 1920x1200 pixels in combination with the AMD G-T16R APU and are accessible from the front panel.

Antenna connectors for two PCI Express MiniCard slots are also conveniently located on the front panel.

Many other variants can also be supplied. Up to six displays and a multitude of wireless functions with, for example, 12 antenna connectors can be controlled.

The BC50M sets practically no limits for the user and its design and versatility make it useful for applications in mobile and safety-critical markets with high graphics demands.

Prices start from EUR995 for single units.
