DRPC-240-TGL-U Fanless DIN-Rail Embedded System with 11th Gen Tiger Lake CPU
IEI’s DRPC TSN/TCC Developer Kit is a compact yet powerful industrial grade embedded system that lets you easily optimise and deploy AI inference at the rugged edge. It’s ready-to-use making it simple to get started – and is equipped with 11th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, and Yocto Project OS image—so you can deploy your AI solutions quickly and easily.
Additionally, the developer kit makes real-time computing a basic feature in simplifying time- sensitive application design for device manufacturers.
Powered by 11th Gen Intel Processor
The DRPC TSN/TCC Developer Kit is powered by a 11th Gen Intel Core i5 processor to provide a balance of performance and responsiveness in a low-power platform. The 11th Gen Intel Core processor is up to 23% faster in single-thread performance and up to 19% faster in multi-thread performance than previous Intel Core series processor generations, enabling a smoother handling of computing intensive tasks.
The processor is optimised for real-time featuring Intel Time Coordinated Computing (Intel TCC) and can also be paired with Intel’s Ethernet controller i225/i226 Series with TSN.
With the new Intel Iris Xe graphics architecture, the GPU is integrated with 80EUs and gains 2.95x the graphics performance over 8th generation Intel Core processors.
Ready-to-Run, Hard Real-Time Computing with Intel TCC and TSN Support……
Hard real-time is necessary in areas such as robotics, automotive and utilities – where a capability fails if it can’t be executed within the allotted time span. To achieve stringent real-time computing requirements, the DRPC TSN/TCC Developer Kit supports both Intel Time Coordinated Computing (Intel TCC) and Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) to assure accurate and stable delay time for critical real-time data across the network.
TSN and Intel TCC are two complementary technologies for real-time communication over IP. TSN defines a set of standards for how time sensitive data is transmitted over Ethernet networks. Intel TCC reduces ‘jitter’ and improves performance for latency sensitive applications.
Fanless System with Reliable Thermal Design
The DRPC-240 PC’s thermal design is optimised for efficient heat conduction using a ‘pin-fin’ heatsink concept. This enhances two-dimensional heat conduction and reduces flow impedance for better heat dissipation in this fan-less system. Overall system weight is consequently reduced by 35%, significantly enhancing system reliability in vibration-sensitive applications, such as AGV (automated guided vehicle) applications. This innovative thermal design allows the DRPC-240 PC to realise a superior performance compared to those designs with traditional plate heatsink consisting of parallel fins.
Advanced High-efficiency Fan Kit Releases Extreme Computing Power
For computing-intensive applications, users can opt to add an external fan to enable an active cooling solution, maintaining a high system performance in a high temperature environment with high CPU loading. This level of design also provides brings increased reliability by preventing dust or particles from getting into the hardware; it’s also very easy to disassemble and clean.
- TDP 15W -20°C ~ 60°C w/o external fan
- TDP 28W -20°C ~ 60°C with external fan
Stackable, Modular PCIe x4 Design for Added Functionality
Adding an optional second stack expansion kit (TXC-DRPC-240-1S-R10) enables the DRPC-240 with increased functionality for the adoption of a variety of PCIe x4 add-on cards such as high density I/O cards, vision cards, motion cards and AI accelerators for specific application requirements.
