The Impact-E 400 series brings the power of expansion to the Amplicon embedded family. Packaged in a lightweight aluminium chassis, designed for optimal heat dissipation, the Impact-E 400 series has been designed with card expansion at its heart.
The Impact-E 400
further improves on the Amplicon Impact-E series, delivering customisable expansion powered by the Ivy Bridge processor generation, packaged in a fanless compact chassis with options for expansion.
The Impact-E 400 series allows for easy access card expansion in an embedded fanless system. Capable of housing cards up to 220mm in either PCI and/or PCIe configurations.
To enable maximum flexibility Amplicon has introduced two models in this series; the Impact-E 430 and the Impact-E 423.
The Impact-E 423 has been optimised for PCI and mPCIe expansion. This unit allows three primary PCI cards to run at PCI standard 2.3 and two mPCIe for modular expansion. The Impact-E 430 offers further PCIe expansion, totalling two, with two PCI lanes.
Both the Impact-E 430 and Impact-E 423 offer PCIe x16 revision 3.0 allowing for optimal graphics card usage, whilst retaining backward compatibility with older revisions.
The Impact-E 400 series can house up to 16GB DDRIII memory enabling the systems to handle a range of memory intensive applications that some of the larger form factor PCs on the market may struggle to process.
Offering both the Intel Ivy Bridge processor and the QM77 chipset, giving high bandwidth SATA III, Intel HD Graphics 4000 and USB 3.0 for a powerful small form factor IPC.
SATA III allows for faster data transfer speeds of up to 6Gb/s, this ensures the data bus bottleneck which previously hindered data transfer speeds is now a thing of the past. The Impact-E 400 series is able to house two HDD or SSD 2.5” format, allowing for RAID 1, 0 and JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks).
The Intel HD Graphics 4000, allows for high-resolution across a multi display output configuration using DVI-I, DVI-D and HDMI up to a maximum resolution of 1920*1200, or converting the DVI-I output to analogue VGA giving a maximum of 2048*1536.
