ARK-3532 - Multi-functional Edge Computers for Machine Vision & Factory Automation

Empowered Edge Computing Solution

The ARK-3532, Advantech's recently released addition to their range of Fanless Intelligent Edge Computers, offers hardware and software integrated solutions with extensive I/O connectivity and plentiful expansion options. The ARK-3532 series is built around the latest Intel 10th Gen. Xeon W and Core embedded 65W processors, combining up to 10 core 20 thread processor support for powerful computing at the Edge.

Fanless, rugged multi-functional design

The ARK 3532 series come in three versions defined by their PCI Express (PCIe) and PCI expansion options: The ARK-3532B features one PCIe x16 (dual slot capacity) and one PCIe x4 slot, the ARK-3532C has two PCI slots and 1x PCIe x4 slot, and the ARK-3532D combines both, offering one PCIe x16 (dual slot capacity), one PCIe x4, and two PCI slots.  

In addition to the 10th Generation Intel processors, all three ARK-3532 versions feature a fanless aluminium chassis, a wide operating temperature range of -20°C to +60°C, and a wide input voltage of 9V to 36V DC. I/O connectivity is also identical across all three with HDMI and VGA display outputs, four Gigabit Ethernet ports, four USB3.2 Gen 2 ports, two USB3.0 ports and two additional USB3.0 ports, all with independent controllers ensuring dedicated power outputs for USB cameras essential for machine vision applications. Additionally, the ARK-3532 series has six serial ports (four RS-232/422/485 with auto flow control and two RS-232). Along with the 16-bit GPIO that's 21 I/O connections on the front panel and when you add the potential for additonal I/O expansion via the PCI/PCIe slot configurations you can truly see the flexibility in the design of this new embedded PC.
