Portwell Launches a Rugged Fan-less Embedded System Designed with Intel® Atom® Processor E3900 Series (Formerly Apollo Lake)

WEBS-13D1 Is Rugged, Compact, Fan-less and Ideal for Kiosk, Image Processing, Digital Signage, Harsh Environments of Factory Automation, Medical and IoT Applications


Fremont, calif. —September 26, 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) market and an Associate member of the Intel® Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions Alliance, today announces the launch of the WEBS-13D1 fan-less embedded system featuring Intel® Atom® processor E3900 product family (codenamed Apollo Lake). Its rugged and compact design, plus low power consumption, makes WEBS-13D1 a perfect solution to support applications for kiosk, image processing, digital signage, medical and the harsh environments of factory automation.

Portwell’s new rugged WEBS-13D1 is equipped with the Portwell PEB-2773, a 3.5” form factor embedded board based on the Intel® Atom® processor E3900 series integrating the low power Intel® Gen9 graphics engine with up to 18 execution units which improves 3D graphics performance and supports faster 4K encode and decode operations. The compact WEBS-13D1 embedded system also features DDR3L SO-DIMM up to 8GB supporting 1866/1600 MT/s; 6x USB 3.0 ports; one DisplayPort (DP) and one HDMI on rear I/O with resolution up to 4096 x 2160; one smart COM port for RS-232/422/485 selected by BIOS and three COM ports for RS-232 on rear I/O; and multiple storage with 2.5” HDD/SSD and mSATA. In addition, the compact 200(W) × 150(D) × 80(H) mm chassis platform integrates the Mini PCIe interface which provides wireless connectivity such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC (near-field communication) and LTE/GPS functionalities, making it an ideal IoT gateway solution.

The Portwell WEBS-13D1 delivers better and faster performance than its predecessors, yet it is still packed within a compact system dimension (200(W) × 150(D) × 80(H) mm). Moreover, it operates with thermal design power (TDP) under 12W for fan-less applications and also supports a wide voltage of power input from 12V to 24V for rugged applications.

Portwell’s WEBS-13D1 embedded system series is built from rugged box PC by Portwell’s own engineering team to simplify system customization. Its ingenious mechanical design features a compact footprint that enables flexible wall mounting or panel mounting. Specifically, this flexible structure makes it easy to adjust chassis size to meet different board form factors for different applications. The Portwell WEBS-13D1 further benefits from this flexible design concept for the system enclosure with top cover/heat sink mechanism that facilitates efficient heat dissipation. The rugged and compact WEBS-13D1 supports a wide industrial temperature range from -20°C to 60°C for harsh environment operations, while at the same time, its fan-less design ensures reliability, silent operation and low maintenance rate and costs. 

With its fan-less design and superior performance—up to quad-core processing power via Intel® Atom® processor E3900 series and high capability—the Portwell WEBS-13D1 embedded system is a perfect and practical solution for kiosk, image processing, digital signage, medical and the harsh environments of factory automation.
