Industrial Harsh-Environment Computer with Third-Generation Intel® Core™ Processor and QM77 Chipset Offers High Performance for Embedded Applications

Logic Supply, a leading provider of computer systems for industrial and embedded applications, is pleased to announce the release of the LGX AU970 Intel® Core™ Fanless Computer. Designed for demanding industrial applications like high-end automation, data collection and surveillance, this tough, wide-temperature system takes ruggedized, high-performance computing to a whole new level.

High Performance

The AU970 offers high-performance computing for even the most graphics-intensive applications. It supports up to 16 GB dual-channel 1333 DDR3 memory, and comes equipped with a dual- or quad-core third-generation (Ivy Bridge mobile) Intel-Core™ i3/i5/i7 CPU and QM77 chipset.

Third-generation Intel Core processors efficiently deliver top-of-the-line graphics performance while taking up very little space. Logic Supply is among the first to offer this technology in a fanless chassis.

Connected System

A comprehensive array of I/O allows for a wide range of connectivity options, including two eSATA and CFast ports for external storage, a SIM card slot for 3G connectivity in remote deployments, and an 8-bit Digital I/O port. The AU970 has 3 LAN ports (one with Intel iAMT for remote support), 10 USB ports, 4 COM ports and 2 DVI ports for dual independent display. The system has a secure terminal block connector for wide input 9-32V DC power with remote power-switch capability.

Rugged and Reliable

The system's heavy-duty heatsink and chassis provide fanless cooling, with a wide operating temperature of -20C to 55C. The fanless design ensures silent operation, as well as reliability in highly dust- and dirt-prone environments. It also comes equipped with a wall-mounting kit for easy installation.

"Our goal with the AU970 is to provide a system that supports the most challenging applications in the toughest environments," said JP Ishaq, Logic Supply Product Manager. "It's rugged, reliable, and fanless; it's extremely versatile; and it has plenty of processing power for industrial applications."

The AU970 is available exclusively from Logic Supply. Also available is the LGX AU972 Expandable Computer, which, in addition to the above, offers dual PCI express expansion slots for a variety of additional I/O--from network port additions to COM ports and specialized hard drive hot-swap bays.
