The AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 processor series
The centrepiece of the new RUGGED is the AMD Ryzen V1807B embedded processor with 4 x 3.35 GHz (maximum 3.8 GHz). This unifies AMD’s Zen CPU and Vega GPU architectures into an APU (= Accelerated Processing Unit). This revolutionary combination of CPU and graphics power provides exceptional computing power so that processing and playback of high-resolution multimedia applications can easily compete with dedicated graphics cards. More facts about the CPU: 4 cores, 8 threads and 11 compute units provide completely new possibilities and require only 12 to 54 watts of power.
Outdoor and Vehicle computing
Thanks to its completely enclosed housing, the fanless RUGGED Ryzen is the perfect Mini-PC for outdoor digital signage. Whether it’s freezing cold or extreme hot – the Embedded PC runs flawlessly even in the extended temperature range of -40° to +70° Celsius and is therefore suitable for all climatic conditions. When it comes to vehicle computing, the new RUGGED also plays in the champions league. With a 9-48V wide range input and a massive body that absorbs shock and vibration easily, the Vehicle PC is the perfect partner for mobile applications, such as in emergency vehicles.
The passively cooled housing with the dimensions 260 x 226 x 89 mm provides space for numerous connections. The front panel has four USB 3.0 ports and four LAN interfaces for connecting external periphery. In addition to two SIM card slots, the power button and some indicator lights, among others for the HDD, can be found here. On the back panel there are four more LAN interfaces and three COM ports. Furthermore, there are four Display Ports, which allow the playback of multimedia content with a resolution of four times 4K@60Hz. This is completed by three audio ports that cover the areas MIC IN, LINE OUT and LINE IN.
Hardware and Software equipment
So that the high-performance CPU of the RUGGED Ryzen has enough working space, it can be supported with up to 32 GB of DDR4 memory. There is, as well, space for up to two HDDs or SSDs with a maximum of 1 TB memory. They can also be connected to RAID and are suitable for hot swapping. This means, that the components can be replaced while the Mini-PC is running. On the software side, the operating systems Windows 10 in the versions IoT, Home or Professional are running as well as Linux Ubuntu.
Numerous options for expansion
If the various features of the Embedded PC are not enough, you can treat yourself to a variety of expansions. WiFi, 4G and GPS modules can be connected via one m.2 and three m-PCIe interfaces. A CAN bus is also possible. When using an LTE module, the two SIM card slots on the front panel allow you to dial into two different mobile networks. This is especially useful if you want to avoid dead spots or if you are travelling near country borders. Optionally available is also a battery pack, which protects against loss of data during power outages, as well as standardized wall mounts according to VESA or DIN RAIL.
