ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading global provider of intelligent computing platforms, today announced its new Matrix MXE-5400 fanless embedded computer with industry-leading performance, based on 4th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-4700EQ quad-core processor. The MXE-5400 delivers outstanding performance, excellent manageability, optimized connectivity, and rugged design in a compact package. Maintaining the ingenious design principles of ADLINK’s Matrix series for withstanding harsh environments, plus implementation of ADLINK’s proprietary SEMA (Smart Embedded Management Agent) tool, the MXE-5400 maximizes manageability and security for a wide range of applications, making it the optimal solution for outdoor intelligent transportation, digital surveillance, security, and industrial automation applications.

Outstanding Performance

ADLINK’s new MXE-5400, featuring the most advanced 4th Gen Intel® Core™ i series processors, delivers increased computing power and features with leading CPU and graphics performance, while maintaining minimal power consumption. Accompanied with ADLINK MSDK+ based on Intel® Media SDK and Quick Sync Technology media streaming capability is boosted and CPU loading reduced, increasing the competitive edge over conventional solutions.

Excellent Manageability

ADLINK’s newest intelligent computing platform, the MXE-5400 fanless embedded computer, is hardware ready for Intel® vPro™ technologies, allows administrators and users to manage and control the system remotely via encrypted OOB TCP/IP communication by Intel®  iAMT 9.0. ADLINK’s proprietary SEMA offers an easy-to-use library enable real-time monitoring of system health as well as accessing management utilities.

Optimized I/O Design to Serve Specific Applications

The MXE-5400 provides reliable and convenient inter-device connection, providing versatile I/O support connectivity, including support for 3 independent displays from DVI-I, and 2 dual DisplayPort, 4 serial ports with surge protection, 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports, 8 isolated digital input/output and 6 USB 3.0 ports, plus one internal USB 2.0 for dongles. To enhance data reliability of the MXE-5400, an internal dual SATA-III interface accommodates RAID support and the dual mini PCIe interfaces support rich wireless communication options, such as BT/WiFi and 3G, with one configurable to mini SATA access by jumper selection. In addition, surge protection of GgE ports and COM ports further accommodate outdoors applications. The MXE-5400 offers great flexibility while maintaining maximum reliability, in storage utilization and function expansion.

Meeting the booming needs for mission-critical applications, systems must accomplish assigned tasks with utmost dependability in a timely manner. Not only abundant computing power, but also reliability and ruggedness are critical in systems to satisfy the rigors of these demanding environments.” said Kenny Chang, Director of I/O Platforms, ADLINK Technology. “With our MXE-5400 and SEMA as a cornerstone of our intelligent computing platform line, customers enjoy the maximum performance, manageability, and connectivity they have come to expect from ADLINK’s fanless embedded computers, but at significantly higher levels."

Rugged Design & Reliability

The ADLINK MXE-5400 improves on competing products with a proven ruggedized design delivering operating shock tolerance up to 50 G, and an extended operating temperature range of -20°C to 60°C.
