American Industrial Systems, Inc. (AIS), the open platform, industrial touch panel HMI & Industrial PC (IPC) manufacturer announces the use of Intel’s Atom™ System on a Chip (SoC) E3845 processors in their new value line touch panel HMI scheduled to be released later this year. The inclusion of Intel’s new E3800 product family into the design of their Value line of PC-based control and monitoring HMI solutions will give AIS’s new offering excellent reliability and availability for rugged industrial machinery, equipment, control and automation applications found in factories and in-vehicle infotainment systems in consumer and commercial vehicles. Available in a wide range of display sizes and models including: 7”, 8”, 10”, 12.1”, 15”, 17”, 19”, and 21.5”, the new family will also find use in SCADA networks, cloud and Industry 4.0 technologies and applications.

AIS’s Value Line of Panel PCs Offer Many Cost & Space Saving Advantages Featuring Intel’s Highly Integrated Atom™ SoC Processor
The X86-based Chip, Intel® Atom™ processor E3845 is the first system-on-chip (SoC) designed for intelligent HMI systems. Utilizing these highly integrated and powerful processors, the AIS Value line of industrial touch panel PCs will deliver outstanding compute, graphical, and media performance while operating in an extended range of thermal conditions. This will be highly desirable for rugged or challenging environments in industrial machinery, control, automation and monitoring applications that require high-speed processing capabilities from HMI systems and operator interfaces. These SoCs are based on the Intel® Silvermont microarchitecture, utilizing Intel’s industry-leading 22nm process technology with 3-D Tri-Gate transistors, which deliver significant improvements in computational HMI performance and energy efficiency. Highlights of the processor product family include high I/O connectivity, integrated memory controller, virtualization, error correcting code (ECC), and built-in security capabilities within a thermal design power (TDP) of 10W.
Reducing Size & Costs While Delivering HMI Performance and Functionality for Rugged Environments
Cost is always a driving factor in the design cycle of new HMI systems, control and monitoring and visualization tools. As a leader in designing and manufacturing the most cost-effective HMI systems and operator interfaces available for over a decade, AIS recognizes the most common challenges facing HMI system architects are reducing system size, cost, power consumption, while improving human machine interfaces (HMI). Size is also another key feature in embedded computing and HMI device designs. The control and monitoring systems have to be designed to be as small and as light as possible while still being rugged and durable for a wide variety of industrial applications ranging from oil and gas, to food and beverage, power generation and general industrial automation. OEMs directly benefit from AIS’s space and cost saving HMI designs, since panel real estate and weight is always a major consideration in the development of machinery and equipment they design and produce for their own customers.
A New Lightweight Aluminum Die-Cast Housing and SoC Processor Reduces Overall HMI Systems Costs for AIS’s Customers by Up to 15%
AIS’s HMI design objective is to make the cost of the bill of materials (BOM) as low as possible without sacrificing HMI system features and performance. AIS’s new value line of Panel PCs combine the advantages of a True X86-based design, Intel® Atom™ Processor E3845 with a compact, rugged aluminum die-cast housing. The potential for system cost savings for customers can range up to 15%. While lowering overall systems costs greatly, using an aluminum die casting housing for AIS’s new family of industrial touch panel PC-based HMIs offer customers many benefits including: cost savings; lightweight frame; high dimensional stability; superior corrosion resistance; improved mechanical properties; high thermal and electrical conductivity; and the ability to retain strength at high temperatures.
System-on-Chip (SoC) Package Provides More Embedded Computing Power in a Single Processor than Ever Before for AIS’s Open Platform PC-Base HMI Designs
Single die on a single package delivers the high levels of integrated functionality needed for intelligent HMI system designs. This one-chip solution helps save on bill of materials (BOM) cost and allows for a smaller form factor solution over previous-generation, two-chip offerings. By utilizing the SoC single processor package in their future HMI designs and engineering, AIS will pass the benefits and savings onto customers in the form of their new Value line of open, pc-based touch panels and operator interfaces scheduled for release in Fall of 2014.
X86-Based Open Standard Allows for Flexible Integration of AIS’s HMIs and Operator Interfaces
As the performance requirements for HMI and industrial automation systems continue to become more demanding, devices used require more synchronization and scalability. This means an open architecture and simple software development environments with multiple devices can greatly benefit developers, minimizing them of the burdens of becoming familiar with additional application tools. As a leader in open platform, PC-based HMI and operator interface design and engineering, AIS is committed to stay at the forefront of new technologies that will foster the development of improved open platform HMI solutions.
Reducing HMI System Size, Cost, and Power Consumption for Rugged HMI Applications
The Atom™ E3845 processor was produced by Intel™ as a high-powered chip that would work in a wide range of thermal conditions, making it a highly desirable processor solution for AIS’s new industrial control and monitoring solutions. The Intel® Atom™ Processor E3845 contains numerous improvements over previous generations of Intel® Atom™ processors. Three significant improvement areas are in integration, performance, and power utilization. The processor is a single-die SoC design, compared to previous designs comprising two chips, one for the CPU and one for the chipset. The Intel® Atom™ processor E3800 SoC family comprises a CPU, GPU, I/O interfaces, security, and media engines, which provide benefits in terms of reducing Bill-Of-Materials (BOM) costs and general power and performance improvements. The benefits of this single processor design will help AIS deliver smaller, more compact and more powerful HMI solutions for their customers at lower costs.
New Processor Design Highlights, Capabilities & Benefits for AIS’s HMI Systems
- The new Intel® Atom™ processor and SoC design for intelligent systems offer many features and benefits for AIS’s new value line of industrial PC-based HMIs and touch panels. Utilizing this processor in future open platform HMI and operator interface designs offer:
- Advancements in visual processing capabilities enable faster media conversions, stereoscopic 3D, immersive web browsing and enhanced HD video transcoding.
- Outstanding integration of I/O interface supports display interfaces with graphics processing, camera interfaces with processing, audio with digital signal processing and more.
- Security enhancement and content protection via Intel AES new instructions and secure boot.
- Integrated 64-Bit memory controller features either one or two channels of up to 8 GB DDR3L system memory and optional ECC memory.
- Options for industrial temperature range for excellent reliability for rugged designs and extreme environments in industrial control and automation applications.
- Extended life cycle product support protects system investment by enabling extended product availability for embedded customers
