Computer hardware manufacturer OnLogic has teamed up with AMD to release a line of small form factor industrial computers powered by AMD Ryzen Embedded processors.
Both the ultra-compact fanless ML100G-40, and actively-cooled MC510-40 are available for pre-order now and limited quantities are expected to begin shipping to customers this month.
Johnny Chen, OnLogic partnership manager, says: “When we talk about helping clients find the ‘right-fit’ computing solution, it’s about a lot more than just the form factor of the device.
“We want to match our customers with the hardware platform that’s going to best solve their project challenges.
“Today’s AMD processors provide a very appealing mix of performance, price and capabilities that, when combined with our hardware platforms, create new application possibilities and give our clients a way to further customize their hardware solution to meet the unique demands of their project.”
These new AMD-powered computers leverage the reliability, US and EU-based support, and extended lifecycles offered by OnLogic, and are intended for use in manufacturing, automation, transportation, digital media, medical, and other IoT and Industry 4.0 applications.
With fully silent operation, in the case of the ML100G-40, and reduced maintenance requirements, both devices could also be used as commercial desktop replacements or in client computing installations.
The company’s hardware is designed to resist damage from environmental factors like airborne particulate, shock and vibration and extreme temperatures.
The ML100G-40 is a compact, fanless system intended for space-constrained installations and can be configured with an AMD Ryzen Embedded R1505G or AMD Ryzen Embedded V1605B processor.
The system utilizes the same chassis as OnLogic’s line of NUC systems, and is engineered to be completely silent, fully solid state and cooled passively, without the need for a fan or openings in the case.
The system features Dual LAN, triple display capabilities and is configurable with a range of memory and storage options.
The actively cooled MC510-40 is quad-display capable and powered by the AMD Ryzen Embedded V1605B processor.
The system is intended for digital signage and workstation applications that don’t require the environmental protections offered by a fanless solution.
Amey Deosthali, director of channel marketing, embedded solutions, AMD, says: “The combination of OnLogic industrial computing hardware and AMD processors is a great fit for customers that want high-performance mini PCs and compute devices for industrial markets.
“We’re excited to see how our partners, like OnLogic, create high-performance Mini PCs using AMD Ryzen Embedded processors that support the professional markets OnLogic serves.”
