Portwell Announces Application-Focused, “RS4U – Ready Solution for You”, Embedded Computer Series

Portwell RS4U

FREMONT, CA. May 2, 2017 -- American Portwell Technology, Inc., (http://www.portwell.com), a wholly owned subsidiary of Portwell, Inc., a world-leading innovator in the Industrial PC (IPC) and embedded computing markets and an Associate member of the Intel® Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions Alliance, announces Portwell’s new Box PC and embedded systems series, RS4U or Ready Solution for You. Built with application-centric design, the RS4U series includes a great portfolio of pre-configured system solutions: From compact and robust Box PCs to highly flexible and scalable 4U 19” industrial computers, and with CPU from Intel® Celeron® processor N3350 (codenamed Apollo Lake) up to the 6th generation Intel® Core™ processors (codenamed Skylake).

RS4U Delivers Versatility and Enables Fast Application Development with Field-proven Features
Based on a Type 6 COMe module with 14nm Intel® Celeron® processor N3350 (formerly Apollo Lake), the RS4U-B641-P&E offers compelling computing and graphic power at low power consumption. Featuring 9-32V wide range DC input voltages, it supports operations in demanding applications. With usage in harsh environments in mind, it’s designed to withstand 50G static shock and 5Grms dynamic vibration. Storage and security functions are supported by the integrated SPI ROM. For a quick deployment, CentOS 7 is pre-installed on the integrated 64GB SSD.

Powered by Intel® Celeron® processor N3350, the RS4U-8172-M2M offers compelling computing and graphic power at low power consumption. With integrated TPM (Trusted Platform Module) and support for wide range power input (12 or 19-24V DC), it’s designed as a cost-effective solution to fulfill gateway tasks in M2M (machine-to-machine) applications for various markets. The RS4U-8172-M2M also features 4GB DDR3L RAM and 32GB M.2. The integrated TPM (Trusted Platform Module) ensures a stable and secure operation.

The RS4U-8112-MES is built with a PICMG 1.3 backplane system which is already populated with a PICMG 1.3 System Host Board/processor card featuring Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1225 v3 with ECC memory supported. Designed with support for Windows 7 and even Windows XP, it’s perfect for legacy projects. In addition to the flexibility of operating with old Windows versions, the RS4U-8112-MES has 9 PCI slots, which is also ideal for legacy support. Moreover, it features Intel® I210 Gigabit Ethernet controller with EtherCAT (optional, 3rd party driver support). The built-in eAPI function is controlled by an embedded controller, enabling hardware monitoring and control functionalities.

Designed with an industrial ATX motherboard based on a powerful 6th gen Intel® Core™ i7-6700 processor (formerly Skylake), the RS4U-1703-IAC targets applications that demand high computing power. The pre-configured 8GB DDR4 can be flexibly expanded to up to 64GB. The integrated dual Intel® Gigabit Ethernet Controller I210 supports optional EtherCAT function. The two PCIE x16 extension slots provide more capacity to add additional functions.

The Portwell API
While each of these four RS4U platforms is configured with a different application-ready feature set, they do have one thing in common — all benefits from the management and control functionalities provided by the Portwell API (Application Programming Interface). Specifically, the Portwell API is a comprehensive library of API functions that enable developers to access and control hardware resources of Portwell’s embedded computing platforms. It helps minimize development effort and the time spent on initial designs, including validation and verification. It also enables hardware monitoring and control functionalities, resulting in higher service quality, easier maintenance, and a lower total cost of ownership.
