    Stealth.com Inc., a leader in the industrial computer and peripherals market has released a new ultra small PC designed specifically for in-vehicle/mobile/embedded applications. Stealth's model LPC-125LPM is a rugged small form PC that operates in extreme temperatures and is energy efficient, drawing less than 20 Watts in operational power.

    Housed in a rugged aluminum enclosure this energy efficient & versatile PC measures out at only 4.0" x 6.1" x 1.45" (102mm x 155mm x 37mm) or about the size of a deck of playing cards. The Stealth Mini PC weighs in at a mere 1.2lbs or 0.54kg. The PC operates from 10-26V of DC power making it ideal for DC powered applications typically found in vehicles and mobile applications.

    According to Stealth CEO, Ed Boutilier; "One of the unique attributes the LPC-125LPM mobile computer possesses is a smart power interface that provides a controlled system start-up and shut-down time. This feature is absolutely critical in preventing data corruption typically caused when power sources are interrupted in mobile and field environments."

    Stealth's embedded mobile PC utilizes the energy saving Intel D525 Pineview 1.8GHz Dual Core processor technology with two physical cores and four Intel Hyperthreading resources. (two per core) The Stealth ultra low-powered computer provides plenty of performance for most embedded and in-vehicle applications.

    The LPC-125LPM mini PC features a multitude of I/O connectivity built directly into its impressively small design such as; Gigabit LAN, 3-USB, 2-Serial, Video, Audio In/Out, 2-PS/2 ports and 1-external express card slot. The rear locking DC power connector ensures power is securely in place. The LPC-125LPM also features an internal Mini-PCIe card slot for special expansion capability and supports up to 4GB of DDR3 SODIMM memory.

    The LPC-125LPM computer comes standard with a 55GB solid state drive (SSD) providing for extended operating temperatures, vibration and shock. The PC will operate from -10 to +60C or 14 to 140F. If extended temperature, shock and vibration is not a concern the ultra small computer can be configured with a 2.5" mobile hard drive with capacities up to 750GB. Systems are compatible with Microsoft Windows 7/XP, Linux etc and can be custom configured to meet the exact needs of the OEM or end user. The LPC-125LPM is currently shipping with base pricing starting at $895.00 USD.

    Stealth's LittlePC products serve a demanding market where small and powerful solutions are being deployed in space-challenged applications around the world. Embedded Control, Digital Signs, Kiosks, Mobile Navigation, Thin-Clients, POS & Human/Machine Interface are just a few of the applications that are ideal for Stealth's industry trusted products.

    Sorry but don't see how 60c is extreme. Maybe they mixed it up with the price ?.

    60c is nothing if they are talking about CPU temp or gpu temp, but I'm pretty sure they mean 60 C for the ambient air temperature during operation. The inside of a locked car on a hot day can probably get close to that in some places. I would hate to see what the CPU temp and ssd temp would be if it was even 100F in the car though:twitch:

    The 60C must be something else as this will fail more than 3 months of the year in Arizona where avg car temps floats around 160F from spring to autumn.

    I can imagine this has to be able to at least survive -40F to 200F to be practical in half of the USA cars.

    Surely they are a bit confused with the price tag as a $199 10" laptop ee-top something can do the same and will definitely have a failed battery dew to the heat and cold in normal cars but might take up a bit more space, so then why pay $900 for the same hardware without a screen & keyboard.

    Embedded is a better option for this or for NASA.

    For $900 you can likely get 2x unlocked dual core mobile phones for a 3rd of the size and overclock it to 2.2ghz or 800mhz to 1.5ghz is normal.

    Once again, my interest was piqued until I saw the price. I know for industrial or extreme condition uses these tiny PCs are more expensive but sheesh...I could buy 4 fully outfitted, sans OS, 'book-size' barebones for this price and they aren't much larger.

    Then who had that typed up needs to be fired lol. And still don't sound like there be much room for a issue to pop up. Maybe the main chip can take 60c but what about every thing else in the unit like ram chips.

    With intel SSD's they can take up to 70c i believe.
