Cincoze DS-1300 embedded computer


Cincoze has launched the company’s first family of 10th generation Intel Xeon/Core-based rugged embedded computers. The DS-1300 series features three models with varying numbers of PCIe expansion slots, and is ideal for harsh environment applications requiring high computing power, such as unmanned systems and robotics.

The DS-1300 series can support a 10th generation Intel Xeon/Core (Comet Lake-S) CPU, up to 10-core 80 W, representing a 31% performance increase for multitasking compute-intensive applications. It supports two sets of DDR4 SO-DIMM for a total of 64 GB, and storage options include a set of high-speed M.2 NVMe storage slots, three sets of mSATA slots, and two sets of 2.5″ hard drive trays. One set of drive trays is arranged in the front maintenance area for emergency access, providing fast storage and convenient repairs. Cincoze’s unique fanless design ensures smooth operation in normal temperature conditions and supports an external fan to enhance cooling in more challenging situations.

The DS-1300 series provides up to two PCI/PCIe expansion slots and a 110 W power supply capacity, and can be connected to various commercially available high-speed I/O cards, image capture cards, motion control cards, or GPU cards. In order to strengthen the stability of the expansion card, Cincoze’s patented “Adjustable PCIe Retainer” utilizes a two-stage precision adjustment mechanism that can be tightly adjusted and strengthened according to the size of the external card (up to 235 mm x 111 mm), providing reliable support under high-vibration environments, and maintaining safe and reliable continuous operation at the site.

The DS-1300 series has an array of native high-speed I/O, including 2x GbE LAN, 2x COM, 6x USB3.2, 2x USB2.0, and more. It can also be used with Cincoze’s modular design CMI, MEC, and CFM, for additional functions. CMI and MEC provide up to 12x GbE LAN, 2x 10GbE LAN, 32x Digital I/O, 8x M12, 4x COM, or 4x USB3.2. CFM modules can add power ignition sensing and PoE functions. In addition, a built-in MiniPCIe expansion slot supports commercially available Wifi/4G/GPS modules with up to two SIM cards.

The full DS-1300 range is certified against shock and vibration, adhering to the stringent MIL-STD-810G military equipment standard. It also meets the specifications of rail standard EN 50155 (EN 50121-3-2 only) and maintains the rugged design of the rest of the DIAMOND series. It supports a wide operating temperature range (-40 to 70℃), a wide voltage input range (9–48VDC), and provides overvoltage, overcurrent, and electrostatic discharge protection.
