Embedded System with 6 GbE Network Ports for


Vision Control Applications

(Taipei, Taiwan September 23rd, 2010)


Today Lanner Electronics Inc., releases
the LEC-2026, an embedded system with
a specialized focus on network
capabilities. The LEC-2026 is driven by
the N270 Intel Atom and the Intel
945GSE + ICH7M chipset. It supports 6
Intel GbE LAN ports, each with its own network controller, to ensure high throughput for
network communication and Vision Control applications. The extended temperature
specification and fanless design allows the LEC-2026 to thrive in harsh environments.

The LEC-2026 is designed for Vision Control applications. Vision Control is a real-time video
monitoring system for quality control. The system is designed for IA and other manufacturing
environments ensure the proper placement of components. For example in motherboard
manufacturing a Vision Control system would be included in the various chip shooters to
ensure each component was placed correctly. The Vision Control’s digital GigE cameras are
mounted inside the machine and are connected to the external IPC. Software on the IPC will
then use the cameras to constantly assess each placed chip. This analysis happens in real
time, so the IPC does not retain any of the video footage- and therefore is not reliant on storage
space.

The LEC-2026 is designed for use with Vision Control, by having separate high bandwidth GigE
ports, each with their own separate controller. This ensures that the data stream will have a
continuously high bandwidth to serve for Vision Control applications. With 6 Intel GbE LAN
ports the LEC-2026 can run up to 6 cameras for Vision Control applications.

To promote longevity the LEC-2026 is fanless, while still boasting an extended temperature
range between -10o Celsius and 55o Celsius. One reason the unit can support fanless design is
the low power threshold involved in the N270 Intel Atom- which still boast 1.6GHz of processing
ability. The heat dispersing fins along the chassis ensure the unit will remain cool in even the
harshest industrial settings.

Other connections include the 2 x USB 2.0 ports, 1 RJ45 COM port and a VGA port for
attaching monitors. With 2.5” SATA HDD support and a CF socket this aluminum cased SFF

computer can utilize various operating systems (including XPE and Linux Kernel 2.4.16) and
serve many different applications.
