MSC Technologies presents embedded system with "CAN to USB" module and galvanically isolated GPIO module

(PresseBox) (Stutensee, ) MSC Technologies, a company of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), delivers its compact NanoServer® NN embedded system with integrated “CAN to USB” module and galvanically isolated GPIO module. The powerful Box PC bases on the Intel® Q-170 chipset and 6th generation Intel® Core™ processors of the Desktop and the low-power Desktop series (former codenamed Skylake).

The heart of the "CAN to USB" module is a Cortex M3 microcontroller with an internal CAN controller designed for an extended temperature range. CAN protocols 2.0A and 2.0B are supported. Power is supplied via USB; the USB and CAN are galvanically isolated. The galvanically isolated GPIO module provides four outputs and four inputs. 

The 58 mm slimline NanoServer® NN without slot is suited for continuous operation (24/7) in an industrial environment. On customer request, the modular NanoServer® system can be adapted quickly with optimized cost to special application requirements. The Box PC is manufactured at MSC's modern factory in Freiburg, which specializes in manufacturing small and large batches flexibly and on short notice.

The scalable NanoServer® NN is assembled with the processor variants Intel® Core™ i7-6700(TE), i5-6500(TE) or i3-6100(TE) with two or four CPU cores. Depending on the processor type, Intel® vPro, Intel® 64, the Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x), the Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d), the Intel® Trusted Execution Technology, Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard AES-NI, and the Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 are supported. The on-chip Intel® HD Graphics supports DirectX® 12, OpenGL 4.3/4.4, and OpenCL™ 2.x. The DDR4 memory is expandable via two SODIMM sockets up to a capacity of 32 GB.

External connectors include 2 x GB LAN (IEEE1588), four USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports each, RS232, DVI-D, and 2 x DisplayPort V1.2. Three independent displays with a maximum resolution of 4K can be controlled 2.5 inch HDDs or SSDs, and mSATA SSDs serve as mass storage.

Numerous integrated security features e.g. a secure boot process, password protection, and a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0, protects the system against an unauthorized access.
