The PCE-5020 is an ideal solution for price-sensitive industrial applications requiring high-performance computing power and great expansion capability, such as automatic optical inspection (AOI), medical image processing, digital surveillance, and telecommunications.
PCE-5020 is designed with an Intel® 945GC desktop chipset and supports Core™2 Duo, Pentium® Dual-Core, and Celeron® 400 processors with 1066MHz FSB and DDR2 667MHz SDRAM up to 4GB. High computing power makes it suitable for today’s industrial applications that need intense image or data processing. Besides great computing power, the PCE-5020 offers a high-performance, integrated Graphics Media Accelerator 950 graphics core with 224MB shared memory. Advanced graphics capability makes it suitable for applications that require complex 3D/2D graphics display via a VGA port.
PCE-5020 is rich in I/O interfaces: it has four SATA 2 ports with RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10, providing high data transmission rates (300MB/sec) and super-reliable read/write performance. The four serial ports (COM ports) can be used for device control applications. Dual Gigabit Ethernet LANs offer strong networking capability.
With one PCIe x16 and four PCIe x1 lanes going to the backplane, the PCE-5020 can be used with all Advantech PCE-5000series backplanes and can utilize mainstream PCIe x16 graphics cards. With eighteen 5000 series backplanes, the PCI, PCI-X, and PCIe expansion options are both robust and numerous.
In addition to board-level products, Advantech also offers rack-mount and wall-mount chassis options; with PCE-5020 joining the product portfolio, Advantech now can provide more competitive general purpose, high value C/P system-level solutions.
With outstanding performance and mainstream plugin capability, PCE-5020 is an ideal computing platform for modern industrial applications, especially where economy is important. For more information about the PCE-5020, or other industrial host boards, please visit www.advantech.com.
