Logic Supply extends rugged computer line for industrial and embedded applications.Logic Supply, a provider of specialized computer systems for industrial and embedded applications, has introduced its new LGX extended temperature Atom D2550 AU145 rugged system designed for a wide range of industrial applications.

Key features include:

• Latest Intel Atom Cedarview technology, combined with chassis design, results in highest performance per square inch of volume yet in the Logic Supply fanless computer line.
• I/O choices, including dual COM, dual LAN, and dual display, combined with an extended temperature range of -25 to 55 °C.
• CE & FCC certified.

“The LGX AU145 is a reliable system with a small footprint and extended temperature range and is designed to be a smaller solution that lasts longer,” said JP Ishaq, product manager for Logic Supply. “This system delivers a rugged, turn-key, go-anywhere solution without compromising performance or features.”

The system is built on the Intel Atom Cedarview platform. With the D2550 processor and the GMA3650 integrated graphics card, it offers more than enough processing power for industrial signage applications, in a small, fanless, extended temperature range system. Connectivity includes two gigabit Ethernet ports, four USB 2.0 ports, and two RJ45 COM ports, one of which also supports RS-232/422/485 protocols. There is an SD card slot for externally accessible storage, and two antenna holes on either side. Inside the enclosure is space for a standard 2.5 in. SSD and a PCI express mini-card slot for use with a wireless card.

“The system is well suited for customers needing out-of-the-box CE/FCC certification, as well as those with demanding digital signage projects,” says Jeremy Hudson, director of sales at Logic Supply. “The processor is capable of driving HD multimedia, and the system offers two DVI ports for dual displays and a pair of independent audio line-out jacks. With its small footprint, dustproof design, and wide operating temperature range, the LGX AU145 can power displays outside of temperature controlled environments. We see it as a versatile offering for places such as warehouses, train stations, and factories.”
