MIC-7700: fanless IPC with Intel Core i socket-type CPU

Advantech Europe BVvisit website


Advantech is launching the MIC-7700, a high-performance, compact, fanless IPC with the Intel Core i socket-type CPU. MIC-7700 provides highly flexible expansion capability and excellent computing through the Intel 6th/7th generation Core i socket type processor, DDR4 memory, optional I/O modules and Advantech i-module products. Together, these will satisfy applications in the factory and machine automation fields, which need expansion capability and cost effectiveness. The compact size and ruggedised design of MIC-7700 withstand the demands of harsh industrial environments, to ensure stability and durability.

MIC-7700 is a fanless system equipped with the Intel 6th/7th generation Core i socket-type processor. This combination of socket-type CPU and fanless design not only provides high-performance computing ability, but also avoids the problem of dust accumulation, increasing product reliability and reducing equipment maintenance cost. Another advantage of fanless design is that it is silent, which means that the MIC-7700 can be employed in noise-sensitive applications that still require high performance. MIC-7700 supports Microsoft Windows 7/10, Linux OS, and Advantech´s SUSIAccess remote management software utility for convenient management and system protection.

MIC-7700 supports 2× GbE LAN, 8× USB3.0 ports, 6× serial ports, triple displays, and various optional modules, such as 2 LANs, isolation COM, and 32-bit GPIO modules. The rich I/O features can satisfy most factory automation applications. In addition, seven kinds of Advantech i-module products give MIC-7700 even more powerful expansion ability via the PCIe/PCI slots, including 2× 2.5” hot-swappable HDD trays, to support customer add-on cards and large storage requirements. The customer can assembly those modules, accessories, and their own add-on systems quickly and safely because of the innovative mechanical design of MIC-7700. This flexible-capacity approach decreases assembly time on the customer’s production line, saves maintenance cost in the field, and increases RMA efficiency, enabling customers to use a single IPC platform for multiple and varied applications. Furthermore, the shortened lead times of Advantech’s configure-to-order service (CTOS) helps customers reduce their time-to-market, yet with a cost-effective product.

MIC-7700 is a compact, fanless, industrial system that supports wide range of power inputs, and operating temperatures of -10–50degC. The ruggedised chassis design and cast aluminium heatsink offer vibration and shock protection, as well as a passive thermal system that ensures silent operation. Designed for the industrial automation market and to withstand 24/7 operation in harsh environments, all electronic components are rugged and satisfy certification standards for environmental protection, EMI/ESD tolerance, and high-voltage surge requirements (2KV). This high-performance platform with rich I/O and multiple displays provides an attractive option for a variety of IIoT applications.
