Swiss Made Embedded Computer with i7 Quad Core now with QNX 7.0 Support

MPL AG, a key manufacturer of rugged embedded computers, announces QNX 7.0 support for the PIP30

Family. The embedded PIP30 Family offers CPUs up to i7 Quad Core and is designed such that the Fit & Form

remains the same since 1996 when the first PIP was announced.

Dättwil Switzerland, January 2018

The PIP30 Family comes with a large set of interfaces and

leaves hardly any wishes open. The units come with four

GigE ports, up to seven USB (3.0 and 2.0), up to four serial

lines (RS232/485), PS/2, external SATA port, and as

specialty an external PCI-E port. Internally available are two

SATA 3.0 and two SATA 2.0. The system comes with 8GB

ECC DDR3 memory and can be expanded up to 16GB. The

unit can easily be expanded over various expansion ports

like 6 x miniPCIe, PCI-104, PCI/104-Express, XMC, MXM, or external PCI-Express x 16.

The input of the PIP Family is reverse polarity and load dump protected. The input power range starts from

9VDC up to 36VDC, optionally up to 48 or 110VDC. The solution is designed such that an internal UPS system

with battery can be added. If a galvanic separation is required due to standards e.g. for marine or mining

applications, then this can be added internally as well. The BIOS unleashes the power that the latest generation

of hardware provides, while maintaining comprehensive compatibility to legacy software. MPL has access to the

source code of the BIOS, allowing customization for special requirements from the customer, regardless if this is

a splash screen, password protection, or other requirements for your project or application.

The PIP30 is the solution that will meet your needs today and tomorrow. The solution is offered in the standard

PIP housing as well as in a MIL housing or as Open Frame. Needless to say that the PIP30 solution has been

tested with reports for most severe standards like EN60945, MIL-810 and EN50155, just to name a few.
