Brighton, United Kingdom, May 29, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The Impact-E 300 is the latest addition to the Amplicon Impact-E series to deliver the power of the Ivy bridge mobile iCore processor and amazing feature set of the Intel QM77, all packaged in a fanless compact chassis with options for expansion.
The Impact-E 300 allows for easy access card expansion in an embedded fanless system. Capable of housing cards up to 220mm, this new addition gives increased flexibility in its design and functionality. Building on these strong features, the Impact-E 300 delivers expansion using PCI express revision 3.0 giving faster BUS speeds. The Impact-E 300 can house 3 cards, one PCIe x16 and two PCIe x1.
The QM77 chipset brings high bandwidth SATA III allowing for data transfer speeds of up to 6Gb/s, this ensures that the data bus bottleneck, which previously hindered data transfer speeds, is now a thing of the past. With options for two physical drives, mechanical or solid-state, the Impact-E 300 is capable of offering RAID 1, 0 and JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks).
The new Impact-E 300 uses the Intel HD Graphics 4000 that allows for high-resolution on all three-display outputs and offers support for both DirectX and OpenGL graphics rendering options. The new Impact-E 300 also utilises “SuperSpeed” USB 3.0, this provides for USB transfer speeds up to 5Gb/s on four rear mounted ports, these ports also give backwards compatibility to USB 2.0 and 1.1 for legacy peripherals.
In addition, the Impact-E 300 can house up to 16GB DDRIII memory enabling the unit to handle a range of memory intensive applications that some of the larger form factor PCs on the market may struggle to process.
Gavin Chalkley, Amplicon Industrial Computing Product Specialist commented: “The new Impact-E 300 is an exciting addition to our range. Our design team have expanded on the functionality of the Impact-E 200 to offer PCIe expansion for custom and of the shelf cards.”
