A rugged fanless embedded system has been developed by The BVM Group. The TANK-700 is based on the company’s QM67 chipset. It has an integrated GPU at up to 2.8GHz and a mobile Celeron processor at 1.9GHz, both are in the PPGA-988 socket.

All processors can address 4GB DDR3 memory, with 2GB DDR3 on-board. An expansion slot for a further 2GB can be added and up to eight channels of audio/video capture can be fitted.

Intel virtualisation technology allows multiple independent O/S to run on the system: Win CE 6.0, Win XPE, Win 7 Embedded and Linux.

Typical applications include HD audio/video capture for intelligent monitoring in vehicle or fixed installations.

The embedded CAN-bus capability provides communication with vehicle systems to monitor engine and vehicle parameters. Other uses include processor-intensive tasks in medical and process control applications.

Two combo RJ-45 copper and SFP fibre Gigabit LAN ports are provided, there are two 5Gb/s USB3.0 and four USB2.0 ports, a SATA3.0 6Gb/s mass storage interface and eight COM ports.

Optional eight-channel HD audio and video capture is combined with standard  VGA and HDMI dual displays. Dual band 2.4/5GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless communications gives Wi-Fi capability with up to 450Mb/s bandwidth.
