Customers have been asking us to extend our popular embedded display platforms into the Intel world, and we responded with the DX86, a completely new version based on the Intel® Celeron® N2930 quad core processor and running Windows Embedded 7 (WES).
The DX86 follows the established recipe, offering a ready-built chassis integrating TFT display, touch screen and powerful embedded processor but this time customers can access off-the-shelf Windows applications and drivers in addition to loading their own software.
However DX86 Projected capacitive (PCAP) touch display platforms are being used in very different applications from the DX4 ARM based versions, and it quickly became apparent that the original 10.1” screen of our DX86, the largest one we initially offered, wasn’t large enough.
We’ve responded with a 12.1” version. And if that still isn’t big enough a monster 15.6” size is also available. The existing 7” and 10.1” screen sizes will continue to be available. The new 12.1” DX86 features an optically bonded display for better contrast and improved sunlight readability. The 15.6” will ship with a high brightness display (1000cd/m) which has also been optically bonded.
Both platforms can be tailored to suit an individual application in all sorts of ways: cabling, screen glass, backlighting, processor speed and interfaces. Developers can rapidly create a prototype using a standard module from the Evaluation kit, and when the time comes, move from proof of concept to the development of a production unit. At this stage, the platform provides enormous flexibility of screen choice, interfaces, specifications and driver software.
The DX86 Evaluation Kit is ready to use, allowing our customers to get proof of concept prototypes up and running in a few days using off the shelf Windows applications and drivers. It ships with 4GB RAM, 16GB mSATA SSD, a power supply and a selection of interface cables.
Featuring the Intel Bay Trail quad core N2930 CPU processor clocking at 1.86GHz with just 7.5W Thermal Design Power (TDP), the DX86 delivers exceptional performance for a fanless x86 motherboard.
