Skylake industrial PC offers DDR4 and front facing I/O

May 25, 2017 — by Eric Brown 735 views

Adlink launched a rugged, Linux-ready “MVP-5000” industrial PC with 6th Gen Core processors, up to 32GB DDR4 RAM, and mini-PCIe based wireless options.

The MVP-5000 is a close cousin to last year’s MVP-6000, the first in Adlink’s “value line” series of rugged, fanless MVP computers, which offer much of the functionality of its MXE line at a lower price. Both computers supply many of the features of Adlink’s 4th Generation Intel Core based Matrix MXE-5400 computer, such as rated shock and vibration resistance and six USB ports, but they lack extended temperature versions and provide three GbE ports instead of four, among other differences.

Adlink’s MVP-5000 should be even more affordable than the MVP-6000, as it removes the PCI and PCI x16 interfaces. This reduction helps to trim its height by about 50mm and reduce its weight by almost a kilogram. The MVP-5000 advances to faster DDR4 RAM, offering the same 32GB maximum, and it adds several optional wireless modules for the single mini-PCIe slot and uSIM slot.

Otherwise the computer appears to be identical, with dual display support available with its DVI-D, VGA, and dual DisplayPorts. The computer offers a SATA III bay and CFast storage, as well as front-facing I/O including four serial ports, DIO, and audio I/O, among other features. Fedora 18 or Ubuntu 12.04 are available on request.
