MEN Mikro SC24 - AMD G-Series SBC for Multi-Display Control

1.4 GHz Dual Core Processor, -40 to +70/85°C Operating

Introduction

The SC24 is a maintenance-free single-board computer designed to serve as the heart of MEN's box and display computer systems for use in commercial vehicles, mobile machines, railway applications, avionics and industrial automation.

It is powered by an AMD Embedded G-Series APU (Accelerated Processing Unit), the T48N, running at 1.4 GHz. The G-Series combines low-power CPUs and advanced GPUs, in this case an AMD Radeon™ HD 6310, into a single embedded device. The use of the Embedded G-Series makes for high scalability in CPU (single/dual core) and graphics performance (various Radeon™ GPUs or none at all).

The system is equipped with 2 GB of DDR3 SDRAM and offers SD card and mSATA slots. It is designed for fanless operation at temperatures from -40 to +85°C. For this it relies on conduction cooling, as realized in the BC50M Box PC, for example, where the entire housing serves as a heat sink for the internal electronics.

It supports up to two pairs of DisplayPort® interfaces (two independent images, each sent to one or two display panels) with a maximum resolution of 2560x1600 each. Other I/O includes up to 9 USB 2.0, 2 Gigabit Ethernet channels, 3 PCI Express®, up to 5 serial interfaces (4 UARTs also configurable as IBIS or GPS and 1 CAN), HD audio, 1 SATA and various GPIO, e.g., for status LEDs.

The SC24 is not meant to be used as a stand-alone board, as all I/O is collected on two pairs of AirMax VS® connectors - one for all graphics interfaces and one for all remaining I/O, allowing for flexible configuration on separate boards. By using the necessary interface boards like an AE51 or similar customer-specific solutions, the signals can be made available on standard connectors and various types of wide-range PSUs can be added. An I/O board can also offer the option of additional mass storage via the SC24's SATA interface and connections to other periphery, e.g., PCI Express® Mini cards via the PCIe® interface. Used in combination with the AE51 interface board and its integrated PSU, the unit is compliant with EN 50155 and ISO 7637-2 (E-mark for automotive).

The combination of the various CPU/GPU options with easily customized interface boards makes for an extremely flexible system design that can quickly be tailored to a vast number of applications.
