Amplicon introduces fanless industrial PC suitable for space-restricted applications
Amplicon has added to its industrial embedded Impact-E series with the Impact-E PCIe, a compact fanless embedded system. Powered by an Intel Atom D525 dual-core processor, the system is suitable for multiple applications that support PCIe.
The Impact-E PCIe system offers a choice of four or eight COM ports, both of which are software configurable to RS232/422/485, which allows for greater flexibility.
Designed for applications where space is at a premium, the Impact-E PCIe is compact, making it suitable for markets such as transportation, security, point of sales, laboratory automation and industrial automation.

The Digi Transport WR11 from Amplicon is a secure, low-cost HSPA cellular connection; it comes with dual SIM card slots providing cellular failover. The WR11 router is suitable for use in industries including transportation, energy, medical, financial, retail and digital signage as well as cellular back-up and remote device (M2M) connectivity applications.
The Impact-T 400 brings the power of expansion to the Amplicon embedded series in a tower chassis. Packaged in a lightweight aluminium chassis, designed for optimal heat dissipation, the Impact-T 400 has been designed with card expansion at its heart.
Amplicon has added three new feature-packed models to its range of Digi AnywhereUSB devices. The AnywhereUSB is a network-attached USB hub that allows USB devices to connect to a PC by using existing TCP/IP network infrastructure.
Amplicon’s test and measurement division has introduced the Teledyne LeCroy WaveJet Touch — a high-performance, low-cost oscilloscope with a variety of debugging tools and flexible connectivity.
As with standard desktops and laptops, protection from viruses, malicious users and general malware is of paramount importance for embedded devices. Additionally, you many need to preserve the runtime images of embedded systems by protecting them against write operations; because Windows Embedded Standard 7 is based on Windows 7, depending on your configuration, many of the same security vulnerabilities will apply.
