Project Description

Intel Atom badgeUltra-Compact D525 System

This Ultra-Compact system is packed with features and still offers room for expansion in a footprint about the size of a 3.5” hard drive. The CES-1525 is equipped with an Intel® Atom™ D525 processor running at 1.8GHz, on-board soldered 2GB DDR3, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, up to 4 COM ports, USB ports, and dual independent VGA or LVDS displays.  This high functional density allows the CES-1525 to power a wide range of embedded applications such as Video Image Capture, HMI Controllers, In-Vehicle Computers, Command & Control, Surveillance, Targeting, Industrial Control, and anywhere which requires small compact space requirements. Inside CES-1525, there is a SATA port, an mSATA socket, two mini-PCIe sockets, and two optional COM ports for further system expansion and configuration.

Reliability is another key advantage of CES-1525. Its fan-less and cable-less mechanical design provides superior durability, while soldered DDR3 memory offers exceptional shock/vibration resistance. The aluminum-extrusion heat sink is carefully designed to allow a -20°C to +71°C operating temperature range.

The CES-525 ultra-compact, embedded system is available immediately at an attractive price.  Single units are available for evaluation.  Contact Cadia Networks for pricing and volume discounts.  The system can also be configured to meet the needs of your application.
