ADLINK Introduces NuPRO-E43 PICMG 1.3 SHB based on 6th Gen Intel CoreTM Processors

Optimized Single-Board Performance for Industrial Automation & Machine Vision Applications

SAN JOSE, CA, – ADLINK Technology, a leading provider of building blocks and intelligent platform solutions, announced the release of its NuPRO-E43 PICMG 1.3 full-size single board computer, supporting 6th Gen Intel® Core i7/i5/i3 processors (codename: Skylake), based on the Intel® Q170 Express chipset. Featuring dedicated high-bandwidth PCIe x16 Gen 3, rugged I/O, and value-added SEMA® API protection key, the NuPRO-E43 provides a new generation PICMG 1.3 SHB, empowering industrial automation operation in critical conditions.

Boosted Computing Performance

ADLINK’s NuPRO-E43, supporting the latest 6th Gen Intel® Core i7/i5/i3 processors and based on the Intel® Q170 Express chipset, sets a new standard for computing power and graphics performance. Support for DMI Gen3 for 8 GT/s system bus and DDR4 up to 32 GB, accelerated HW codecs with Ultra HD 4K display support, and multiple native PCIe Gen3 expandability combine to deliver maximum dedicated data bandwidth for high-speed graphics cards, benefiting multiple simultaneous complex motion and vision processes.

Optimized Platform for Industrial Automation & Machine Vision

ADLINK’s NuPRO-E43 provides a variety of expansion slots for flexible function enhancement and easier system integration to meet the needs of industrial automation applications. Combined with the optional ADLINK WBP-13E4 backplane, the NuPRO-E43 delivers a perfect automation solution for environments requiring multiple native PCIe gen 3 slots with dedicated bandwidth. For example, when combined with WBP-13E4 backplane, one PCI Express x16 expansion slot can be configured as one PCI Express x8 and two PCI Express x4 Gen 3 slots for frame grabbers, digitizers, and high-resolution dynamic signal acquisition and generation modules, and one PCIe x4 Gen 2 and eight PCI slots for motion capture and I/O ports, for instant implementation of machine vision and industrial automation operations.

Enhanced I/O Ruggedness and Asset Protection

ADLINK’s NuPRO-E43’s I/O ruggedness enhances operational stability, with enhanced power supply stability for each USB port at 5V +/- 5%, with all USB ports achieving full loading even from a 300W supply, rugged connectors gold/metal plated to a minimum15 microinches (3 times the thickness of competitors) for enhanced corrosion resistance. The NuPRO-E43 also features EN55022 Class B-certified EMI prevention, improving on most competitors’ Class A certification. ADLINK’s SEMA® 3.0 eAPI utility enables users to generate their own AP protection keys, securing intellectual property by preventing unauthorized access. Surmounting extreme environmental challenges in industrial automation applications, the NuPRO-E43 ensures system stability, reliability and longevity like none other.
