Lanner Electronics Inc., released the LEC-7105, a rugged mid-range digital signage player. Using the Intel Atom D525, this fanless appliance boasts a 1.8GHz embedded CPU, which comes with extra Intel features such as Intel graphics and high bandwidth LAN ports. The embedded system is designed for digital signage and other industrial applications. It features both VGA and DVI video outputs along with an eSATA connector to attach to external storage devices.
The LEC-7105 is designed to use the dual core Intel Atom D525 (1.8GHz). This low electricity consuming CPU allows the platform to be both fanless and dust proof. This system uses the Intel ICH8M chipset along with up to 4GBs of DDR3 memory.
One of the stand-out features of the LEC-7105 is its external eSATA connector. This I/O port powers and connects external SATA devices and offers connection speeds of up to 3GB per second. High quality digital signage content can be easily transferred on and off the internal hard drive via this device, or even directly play content off a SATA device.
This appliance comes with 2 Mini-PCIe expansion slots, one of which contains a SIM card reader for applications such as 3G and GPS. By providing 2 expansion slots, end users can have both WiFi and 3G connectivity on this platform.
Using the onboard Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150, the LEC-7105 provides HD capable video via either the DVI-D or the VGA port. The appliance can also be set to display one stream of video to both ports at once.
This platform also comes with some of the latest Lanner ease-of-use designs: the screw lock power plug, which ensures a solid connection to the power source; and a remote power control device, which can be attached to the platform and wired to a different location, which allows for the appliance to be turned on from a distance.
Following the Lanner guidelines of having many I/O options, the LEC-7105 also has:
RCA audio, two COM ports, 4 USB ports, 2 RJ45 LAN ports and digital IO.
