CQ40 Series compact yet powerful fanless PC coming soon

April 2017

Our forthcoming CQ40 series fanless in-vehicle PC - available soon - is based on an almost identical physical footprint to our compact CQ15 PC, but offers a range of processors from an entry-level Intel Celeron 2980U up to a high performance Intel Core i7-4650U, with up to 8 GB RAM and dual internal SSDs with RAID support.  

By increasing the chassis height by a mere 2 mm over the CQ15, the CQ40 series accommodates a much wider range of expansion options due to the presence of additional I/O ports. This could take the form of 3 x RS-232 ports, or it could allow simultaneous support of dual-channel CAN-bus and 1 x RS-232 - in addition to built-in GPS, Wi-Fi and 4G/LTE (with dual-SIM slots).

4-channel GPIO (2 in, 2 out) is a standard feature, along with a regulated 12V output for powering accessories. Other I/O ports include dual USB 3.0 (plus an additional USB 2.0 port), HDMI and DVI-I graphics, dual GbE LAN and 3 x audio ports.
