rong>ADLINK Sets New Standard for Fanless Embedded Computing With Outstanding Performance, Manageability and Ruggedized Design

4th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, ADLINK MSDK+, and SEMA support boost DSS and ITS applications

SAN JOSE, CA – ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading global provider of intelligent computing platforms, today announced its new Matrix MXE-5400 fanless embedded computer with industry-leading performance, based on 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7-4700EQ quad-core processor. The MXE-5400 delivers outstanding performance, excellent manageability, optimized connectivity, and rugged design in a compact package. Maintaining the ingenious design principles of ADLINK’s Matrix Matrix MXE-5400 Fanless Embedded Computerseries for withstanding harsh environments, plus implementation of ADLINK’s proprietary SEMA (Smart Embedded Management Agent) remote management tool, the MXE-5400 maximizes manageability and security for a wide range of applications, making it an ideal solution for outdoor intelligent transportation, digital surveillance, security, and industrial automation applications.

Outstanding Performance
ADLINK’s new MXE-5400, featuring the advanced 4th generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors, delivers increased computing power and features with leading CPU and graphics performance while still maintaining minimal power consumption. When accompanied with ADLINK MSDK+—based on Intel® Media SDK and Quick Sync Technology—media streaming capability is boosted and CPU loading reduced, increasing the competitive edge over conventional solutions.

Excellent Manageability
ADLINK’s newest intelligent computing platform, the MXE-5400 fanless embedded computer, is hardware-ready for Intel® vPro™ technologies, which allow administrators and users to manage and control the system remotely via encrypted out-of-band (OOB) TCP/IP communication by Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT) 9.0. ADLINK’s proprietary SEMA offers real-time monitoring of system health and access to an easy-to-use library of APIs and management utilities.

Optimized I/O Design to Serve Specific Applications
The MXE-5400 provides reliable and convenient inter-device connection, providing versatile I/O support connectivity, including support for 3 independent displays from DVI-I, and dual DisplayPort, 4 serial ports with surge protection, 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports, 8 isolated digital input/output and 6 USB 3.0 ports, plus one internal USB 2.0 for dongles. To enhance data reliability of the MXE-5400, an internal dual SATA-III interface accommodates RAID support, and the dual mini PCIe interfaces support rich wireless communication options—such as BT/WiFi and 3G—with one configurable to mini SATA access by jumper selection. In addition, surge protection of GgE ports and COM ports further accommodate outdoor applications. The MXE-5400 offers great flexibility while maintaining maximum reliability, in storage utilization and function expansion.

“To meet the booming need for mission-critical applications, systems must accomplish assigned tasks with the utmost dependability and in a timely manner. Not just abundant computing power, but also reliability and ruggedness, are critical in systems to satisfy the rigors of demanding environments,” said Kenny Chang, director of I/O platforms, ADLINK Technology. “With our MXE-5400 and SEMA as a cornerstone of our intelligent computing platform line, customers enjoy the maximum performance, manageability, and connectivity they have come to expect from ADLINK’s fanless embedded computers, but at significantly higher levels."

Rugged Design & Reliability
The ADLINK MXE-5400 improves on competing products with a proven, ruggedized design delivering operating shock tolerance up to 50 G and an extended operating temperature range of -20°C to 60°C.
