Fanless embedded computer is rugged and here for the long term

Intended for railways, maritime, defence, medical or any application that needs to be supported for 10 years or more, the PIP40 family of fanless embedded computers are based on the 9th generation Intel CPUs. MPL has designed them in 19-inch rack housing and are designed to be built in 1U or 2U housings. In the 2U solution, MPL can build two CPU boards or add a managed switch expansions (pictured).

The PIP4x family comes with Intel CPUs as Celeron, i3, i7, as well as Xeon. The computers will be available until 2034, guaranteed, said MPL. The PIP40 family is certified to EN50155 as well as IEC60945 tested and approved.

The computer features up to 64Gbyte registered DDR4 memory, some with ECCDDR4, one m.2 Key-A (USB2.0, PCIe 2 x 1, up to 3042 module size and Wi-Fi), a single m.2 Key-B (USB3.0, up to 3042 module size, LTE), a m.2 Key-M (SATA or PCIe 4×1, up to 2280 module size) and two mPCIe/mSATA Mini Card sockets with SATA 3.0 and USB 2.0. There are also two SATA 3.0 / 1x NVMe or SATA SSD and up to seven LAN ports and four RS232 or RS422/485 (optional) ports.

There are expansion capabilities for general purpose GPU on MXM, PCIe (eg. RAID, high end graphics or XMC modules).

The PIP40 Family is also available in the MPL standard housing with DIN-rail or flange mounting. Enclosures with IP67 are also available.

In addition there is an open frame version (CPU board on cooling plate), which is best suited for installation in existing cabinets and tight areas.

MPL’s component stock guarantees repairs for up to 20 years. Extended temperature ranges can be accommodated and are tested in MPL’s own climatic chambers according customer’s request.

The PIP40 family and housings are engineered and manufactured by MPL in Switzerland.
