Product model number:PCM-3362
Advantech Co., Ltd.
award 3

The PCM-3362, with the latest Intel® Atom™ N450 processor, features a new super low-power design that doesn’t sacrifice performance. PCM-3362 delivers super low-power consumption and extended temperature support, ranging from -40~85° C in a ruggedly built board that’s highly resistant to vibration.

Heat Spreader Solutions
As more applications require completely sealed enclosures, conventional heat sink technology may no longer get the job done. Instead, properly designed heat spreaders may be used to dissipate heat to external cooling fins via thermally conductive material. This way, heat can be handled even in completely sealed chassis like those used in corrosive and explosive environments. Since heat spreader plates do not have fins, they must attach to a larger chassis surface to dissipate heat, and that may require design changes.PCM-3362 is available either with conventional standard heatsinks or heatsinks with fans, but also with optional heat spreader plates. Advantech PC/104-Plus PCM-3362 board whose optional heat spreaders may consist of a system bottom plate, a heat spreader, a thermal pad for good connection, and then a finned system heatsink.

Integrated Intelligent Software API
Software based thermal protection may also include customized power event triggers, display adjustments, special CPU throttling, warnings, and critical temperature alarms. Advantech provide drivers and APIs for different operating systems including GPIO, I2C, watchdog timer, hardware monitor, panel backlight on/off, brightness control, CPU speed and system throttling for power saving. Supported operating systems include Windows 7, Windows XP, XP Embedded, Windows CE, Vxworks and Linux—hardware drivers for these are readily available. Additional and optional services include custom thermal solutions and extra ruggedized package services including conformal coating and glued DRAM.
