Advantech launches EPC-U2117 palm-sized embedded system

Advantech is announcing its new fanless embedded system, the EPC-U2117. The palm-sized system uses Intel Atom E3900 processor technology to give a 30 per cent CPU performance enhancement and a 45 per cent graphic performance boost.

EPC-U2117 is designed with dual display output, multiple I/O, and wide range 12-24V DC power inputs, which target smart vending machines, digital signage, smart kiosk, and more. EPC-U2117 is compatible with Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Enterprise, and Linux OS. Furthermore, EPC-U2117 has Advantech's WISE-PaaS DeviceOn intelligent software integrated for remote system monitoring and management.

The EPC-U2117 is a palm-sized metal chassis which measures only 170 × 117 × 52.6mm for mounting as a desktop PC, or via wall, or DIN-Rail mount. The top extruded aluminium passive heatsink thermal system is designed for -20 to 60degC-wide temperature operation. It integrates two expansion slots including one M.2 for Wi-Fi or GPU module, and one full-size Mini PCIe for 3G/LTE connection or mSATA storage. EPC-U2117 reserves 4 antenna apertures to support wireless connection. With its optimised thermal design and two independent add-on modules for maximum performance, EPC-U2117 is a good option for outdoor or harsh environment applications and space-limited applications such as outdoor vending machines, passenger information systems, digital signage, smart kiosk and more.

EPC-U2117 is a good choice for applications needing wide range power as it offers 12V to 24V DC input. Customers can directly use our system from different power supplies without extra adapters. EPC-U2117 comes with multiple connectivity and expansion options including one RS-232 and one ccTalk. Furthermore, Intel's latest processor with better performance makes it fit for smart vending machines or smart kiosks and digital signage. The COM port can also be customised to MDB and RS-422/485 for device control and payment device. It offers four USB 3.0 ports, one audio jack, dual gigabit LAN ports and CANBus for general system control.

Advantech's EPC-U2117 supports multiple storage, which includes onboard eMMC up to 128GB, mSATA, and 2.5" SSD/HDD for flexible storage options. Customers can install OS and key data in eMMC for best security protection and reliability. If customer request big storage capacity and high data transfer, they can use mSATA or SATA SSD for better storage performance. EPC-U2117 comes with Advantech's WISE-PaaS DeviceOn software, which offers remote management, system monitoring for better device performance, security, and reliability, and predictive maintenance. WISE-PaaS also supports BIOS/FW OTA to upgrade the system and devices with latest firmware to keep everything running at peak performance.
