"Kontron is readying an Intel Atom Z530-based box computer
designed for rugged railway applications. The MicroSpace MPCX28R
Railway Box PC is protected for railway use with EN50155
certification, TX compliance, extended temperature support, 1.5kV
isolated power, and M12 connectors for Fast Ethernet, USB, and
power, says the company.
"The Linux-compatible MicroSpace MPCX28R is suitable for
passenger infotainment, security, and other railway applications,
says Kontron. Built around the original 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 CPU
and SCH US15W northbridge/southbridge, the MicroSpace MPCX28R
supports up to 1GB of DDR2 RAM, the company says."
