ONLOGIC Helix 310, Helix 330, Karbon 410 and Karbon 430 compact, industrial and rugged fanless computing platforms are powered by the new Intel Atom x6000E, Celeron N and Pentium J series processors formerly known as ‘Elkhart Lake’. Each model is highly customizable, passively cooled and for use in Industry 4.0 applications. IoT-specific features of the Helix 300 and Karbon 400 Series include the Intel Programmable Services Engine (Intel PSE). The Intel PSE is a dedicated offload engine for IoT workloads powered by an ARM Cortex-M7 microcontroller, which enables enhanced real-time computing. The new systems also leverage firm’s ModBay expansion technology, which allows users to customize systems with additional connectivity options via available M.2 and mPCIe slots.
