Advantech Co. Ltd. (TAIEX: 2395), provider of embedded platforms and integration services, announces its new line of Intel Atom processor based embedded IPCs - the ARK-1360, ARK-3202, and ARK-3360, today, March 15. The new IPCs merge ultra low power capabilities and outstanding system performance with competitive pricing to favorably impact project development costs, Advantech says.

The new embedded IPCs facilitate designs where size-constraints and overheating have been a factor. Applications that could benefit include factory automation, in-vehicle, retail, signage, surveillance, and other rugged environments.

Advantech's new IPC line includes:

- ARK-1360 ultra-compact cost effective embedded IPC : Advantech's ARK-1360 offers four USB 2.0 ports, two COM ports, one 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet port and one mini-PCIe socket expansion for wireless applications. All are powered by an Intel Atom processor packed into a robust, ultra-compact, VESA mounted, fanless construction. The ARK-1360 features a single-board architecture with low power requirements. Low initial costs, reduced operating costs, and a long service life fits any project budget, Advantech says.

- ARK-3202 embedded IPC with comprehensive I/O functions : Advantech's ARK-3202 is powered by the Intel Atom N270 processor, and features a rugged chassis with multiple I/O interfaces. Additional features include support for dual DVI and VGA displays, mic in, line out, dual Giga LAN, optional 8-bit DIO, five USB 2.0, optional GPS on-board, and up to six serial ports with RS-422/485 auto flow control. The ARK-3202 consumes low power and offers excellent flexibility by way of its I/O interfaces. It is highly adaptable to a variety of engineering applications and industries.

- ARK-3360 high performance dual display embedded IPC : Advantech ARK-3360 is a high performance industrial computer that supports Intel Atom N450/D510 processors, and features a built-in Intel 3.5 generation chipset. It supports dual displays, high-resolution wide-screen, three GbE ports, six USB 2.0 ports, a maximum of six COM ports, and MiniPCIe/MiniPCI expansion for communication modules such as HSDPA and WLAN. The ARK-3360 brings high performance and high expansion capabilities to diverse engineering applications.

Advantech's new ARK units are ultra-compact for easy setup and maintenance. Both the ARK-3202 and 3360 support a wide range of operating temperatures, from -20 °C to 60 °C. They support a wide range of input voltages, from 12 to 24 V dc, with comprehensive I/O functions that consumpe low levels of power. Advantech's new ARK units bring embedded design solutions to applications where overheating concerns and size restrictions have traditionally been hinderances to development. In-vehicle, retail, signage, surveillance, and factory control applications are just some of the sectors which can benefit from Advantech's new low-power, embedded IPC line.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
