MEDS-BS200 embedded fanless system has parallel computing for medical imaging
Medwel, part of the Portwell group, has launched the MEDS-BS200, embedded fanless system. It features the Intel Atom processor E3900 product family (codenamed Apollo Lake).
Its special and compact design, and low power consumption make the MEDS-BS200 suitable for visualisation and computing in medical applications.
Medwel’s rugged MEDS-BS200 is equipped with the Medwel WUX-3455, a four inch form factor embedded board based on the Intel Atom processor E3900 series integrating the low power Intel Gen9 graphics engine up to 18 execution units which improves 3D graphics performance and supports faster 4K encode and decode operations.
The WUX-3455 motherboard is expected to be equipped with the Atom processor E3900 series, which is designed for medical use. It delivers up to seven times faster than the previous generation, notes Medwel.
The compact MEDS-BS200 embedded system also features DDR3L SO-DIMM up to 8Gbyte supporting 1866/1600 MT/s, six USB ports, one DP and one HDMI with resolution up to 4096 x 2160, one COM port for RS-232 on rear I/O, multiple storage with one SATA III port, one Micro-SD 3.0 socket and support for Onboard Emmc 5.0 up to 64G.
The compact chassis measures 113 x 135 x 41mm and integrates the M.2 interface to provide wireless connectivity such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
The MEDS-BS200 delivers better and faster performance than its predecessors, says Medwel, yet it operates with thermal design power (TDP) under six/10W for fanless applications and also supports a wide voltage of power input from 12 to 19V for rugged applications.
The MEDS-BS200 further benefits from the top cover/heatsink mechanism that facilitates efficient heat dissipation. The rugged and compact MEDS-BS200 supports a wide operation temperature range from 0 to +60 degree C for harsh environment operations, while at the same time, its fanless design ensures reliability, silent operation and low maintenance rate and costs.
