IPC/NETIPC-4 embedded single board computers are equipped with an AMD Vortex86DX processor. The Vortex processor is backwards compatible. This means that the frequency can be reduced – for example, in retrofitting applications – so that the state-of-the-art single board computer is also compatible with older software. All components – including the processor – are specified for an extended temperature range of between –40 and +85 °C and are suitable for outdoor applications, in vehicles and in railway engineering. IPC/NETIPC-4 single board computers are also available with an optional protective coating.
