White Paper: Fanless Design for Embedded Applications

Intel sent us a technical paper about fanless design for embedded applications. Here is the abstract:

Embedded systems opportunities for Intel architecture components exist in point-of-sale, digital signage, and digital security surveillance, to name a few. When selecting Intel architecture, several key metrics are performance/watt, thermal design power (TDP), and fanless thermal solutions. The objective of this article is to provide readers with key reference fanless system design considerations to utilize in embedded applications. This article emphasizes analytical hand calculation for first-order approximations and provides computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation techniques to determine Intel architecture feasibility in fanless systems. Examples depicted illustrate fanless cooling design considerations for a point-of-sale system.

VIA Vision Intelligence Display Touch Screens for Embedded Systems

VIA Technologies introduced the VIA VID series of industrial-class touch screen displays. VIA VID Series displays are available in both ruggedized and open frame configurations. All ruggedized configurations feature IP65 water resistance compliancy and operating temperatures of -10°C to 70°. The TFT LCD panels are ideal for interactive kiosk, POI and POS embedded systems in harsh industrial environments. VIA VID series displays are available now in 15″ and 12.1″ form factors. Later this year, 19″, 10.4″ and 7″ sizes will also be available.
