As partner of MPL AG, we are happy to announce that the PIP4x Product Family is now also EN50155 Class Tx and IEC 60945 externally verified. The product is a rugged, highly flexible, and fanless embedded computer solution, using the 9th Generation Intel CPU’s. The PIP4x Family products have specifically been developed for the use in rugged applications such as Railway, Maritime, or Defense. For this solution, MPL uses the latest low power consumption and long-term available CPUs out of the Intel embedded road-map.
The PIP4x Family is completely designed from scratch by the MPL engineers to insure highest reliability. The design is based on MPL’s thirty-six years of experience in the field of low power engineering. The PIP form factor has been introduced more than 25 years ago and and has remained in the same size and conception since then. The real advantage for the customers is the fact, that the products are designed for long-term availability. To ensure this, MPL designs and manufactures the products 100% in Switzerland. All components are stocked at MPL AG Switzerland to guarantee that the products can be supported and repaired, even years after EOL for a product.
The members of the PIP40 Family start with Intel Celeron and go through i3, i7, even to Xeon solutions.
The PIP4x is equipped with features like:
– Up to 64GB registered DDR4 memory, some models even with ECCDDR4
– 1x m.2 Key-A (USB2.0, PCIe 2×1, up to 3042 module size, WIFI, …)
– 1x m.2 Key-B (USB3.0, up to 3042 module size, LTE, …)
– 1x m.2 Key-M (SATA or PCIe 4×1, up to 2280 module size)
– 2x mPCIe/mSATA Mini Card socket with SATA 3.0 & USB 2.0
– 2x SATA 3.0 / 1x NVMe or SATA SSD
– Up to 7 LAN ports
– 4x RS232 or RS422/485 (optional)
– Expansion capabilities for GPGPU on MXM, PCIe (eg. RAID, AI, high end graphics or XMC modules)
The PIP4x Family is available in the MPL standard housing with DIN-Rail or flange mounting. Further, enclosures with IP67 or as 19″ rack version are available too.
The open frame version (CPU board on cooling plate) is best suited for installation in existing cabinets and tight areas. For applications in a vibration environment, the solution can be supplied with M 12. Customized versions are MPL’s strength!
The PIP4x Family is 100% engineered & manufactured by MPL AG in Switzerland. Next to the EN 50155 & IEC 60945 certification, the PIP4x meets or exceeds the most common standards. Particular references are: EN 55022, EN 55024, EN 61000, MIL-STD-461E, EN 60068, MIL-STD-810G, EN 60601, EN 60950, CE, IACS and E10.
