Swiss Made "Elkhart Lake" Rugged Embedded Computer Family (CEC)

Valued reader,

MPL has developed another ultra compact Computer Family

with a case dimensions of only 62x162x118mm,

based on the 10nm Intel Atom x6000 processor.

Despite the small footprint, the system still has MPL's typical product characteristics like; robustness, highest reliability, long-term availability of at least 10 years, lowest power consumption, extended temperature (-40°C to 85°C) capability, passive cooling (fanless), and easy internal expansion.

The CEC2x comes with onboard NVMe mass storage and supports various other types of mass storage. The onboard m.2 Key-B slot can be used for multiple expansion options. The board is equipped with a high density expansion connector with PCIe, USB, I2C, ... interfaces. This allows to expand the CEC2x with our standard I/O board or semi-custom designed I/O board according the customer needs.

Key features are:
- DDR4 RAM up to 32GB (support of IBECC)
- 1 & 2.5 Gbit Ethernet ports
- Fanless operation
- Longterm availability (until 2035 with selected CPUs)
- Expansion port for standard or custom IO board
- Intel Atom Processor x6000 Family
- Low power consumption 4.5 -12W (TPD CPU)
- On board NVMe Flash (120GB)
- USB3.1, isolated serial ports…

For maximum robustness the CEC2x is designed to operate in the range of -40°C up to 85°C and withstand reverse polarity voltage, overvoltage, surge and burst voltages, as well as electromagnetic discharges targeting the MIL-STD-461E, IEC60945 and EN50155 standards.

With the new design, a specific expansion board has been developed. The CEC2x expansion board (FIME) offers 2 x PCIe, 2 x HSIC, 2 x UART, SATA, SDIO, LPC and I2C. This allows a maximum on customization for any I/O Boards and extending the system with additional interfaces.

The new CEC20 Family is available with a DIN-Rail or flange mount compact aluminum housing, a MIL housing with 38999 connectors according customer requirements, as a 19" rack solution, or as open frame with a cooling concept. The CEC20 Family is 100% engineered and manufactured by MPL AG in Switzerland.

Kind regards,
Your MPL team
