Industry type:PC and software
Product model number:Mic-3100 Series
Advantech Co., Ltd.
award 3

When engineers select an automation platform for the toughest jobs, perhaps the most fundamental requirement is reliability. Of course overall capabilities and interconnectivity need to be there, and the performance must be adequate. But at the end of the day, the system needs to start up reliably and keep running indefinitely. If there is ever a failure then production suffers, delays are imposed and repair expenses are incurred—all of which must be avoided to achieve high productivity. For these reasons, improved reliability must be approached from all avenues in order to achieve overall robustness. A cPCI-based system achieves this goal first through the use of a precision metal cage designed not only to be rugged, but also featuring easy assembly. This structure forms the foundation of an IPC built using cPCI technology.

The MIC-3100 series are Advantechs latest IPC’s and the first to use the CompactPCI standard. CompactPCI is an open standard that gives users the flexibility to add the components that they need. The MIC-3000 series is an industrial CompactPCI solution which features front-end access, high shock and vibration tolerance characteristics, automatic cooling system, fault resilient and hot swappable capabilities. These features make MIC-3000 the most reliable PC-based computing platform, for mission-critical applications. Advantech leverages 3U CompactPCI as the industrial high-end computing platform, providing Pentium 4-grade CPU modules, 8-slot chassis, high-speed I/O and serial communication modules, to become a total solution provider for industrial CompactPCI solutions. Target applications include military defense, transportation, traffic control, test and measurement (T&M) and critical data acquisition & control markets.
