SAN JOSE, Calif., 25 Jan. 2014. ADLINK Technology Inc., a global provider of intelligent computing platforms, are introducing its new Matrix MXE-5400 fanless embedded computer based on 4th generation Intel Core i7-4700EQ quad-core processor.

“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,” explains Kenny Chang, director of I/O platforms, ADLINK Technology.

The MXE-5400 is designed to deliver performance, manageability, optimized connectivity, and rugged design in a compact package. The MXE-5400 maintains the design principles of ADLINK’s Matrix series for withstanding harsh environments, and implements ADLINK’s proprietary Smart Embedded Management Agent (SEMA) remote management tool.

ADLINK’s new MXE-5400, featuring the advanced 4th generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors, delivers increased computing power with attractive CPU and graphics performance while 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.

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.

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.

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.
