Stealth.Com has released a new small form factor (or mini PC) designed specifically for in-vehicle/mobile/embedded applications. The LPC-450M Little PC operates with a 10-16VDC power input for DC-powered applications typically found in vehicles and remote applications. The mobile Little PC's utilizes Intel's Core 2 Duo and is housed in a rugged aluminum enclosure that measures out at 5.7"(W) x 9.9"(D) x 1.65"(H) -- about the size of a hard cover book.
When the ignition/power key is turned ON, the Start-up Delay Timer setting delays the start up or turn-on time of the PC. This prevents any false power starts and properly ensures that power is 100 percent available and ready to go. User selectable timer delay settings are; 5, 10, 20, 40 seconds, 1, 2 and 4 minutes.
When the ignition/power key is turned OFF, the Shut-Down Delay Timer setting can prevent potentially important data from being lost. The shut down delay timer feature ensures that a safe power down cycle is made by extending the power down time. User selectable settings are 3, 5, and 10 minutes.
If for any reason the OS has experienced a problem shutting down the computer, the Stealth Mobile LittlePC has a built-in hardware shut down feature which will ensure the computer will safely shutdown preventing continuous load and draining the vehicles battery power.
Stealth's mobile PC's features I/O connectivity, including: LAN, 2-Serial, 3-USB, FireWire, Video, Audio, PS/2 Mouse & Keyboard ports. The LPC-450M has a built-in 2.5" high-shock hard drive with up to 500GB's of storage space for archived data. A lower powered Fanless model LPC-450FM is also available delivering noise-free operation. For applications that require extra high shock, vibration and wide temperature ranges, optional SSD or Solid State Drive options are available. A slim DVD/CD-RW optical drive comes standard with an optional DVD burner available. Systems are compatible with Microsoft Vista/XP, Linux etc and can be custom configured to meet the exact needs of the OEM or end user.
