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.

- 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

Participate in the 2013 Salary Survey

In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.

Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
