Advantech-Innocore Announces DPX-E135 Integrated Gaming System with “Cabinet-Ready I/O”
Adding a new dimension to the DPX®-E series range, the new DPX-E135 is designed with “Cabinet-ready I/O”. This innovative design puts all the connectors conveniently in one area and uses typical slot industry connectors to provide an economical, robust harnessing arrangement. The need for additional connector boards or backplanes is eliminated saving cost and simplifying cabinet layout and harnessing.
At the heart of the DPX-E135 is the 3rd generation AMD’s G Series embedded platform, with the latest high performance dual and quad core SOC devices operating up to 2.4GHz and supporting up to 16GB DDR3 RAM. A “Discrete-level Graphics” core (Radeon HD8000) outputs to two independent monitors via two DisplayPort 1.2 DP++ ports plus a VGA legacy port.
In spiteof the high performance of the CPUs (up to 25Watt) and the integrated GPU, the DPX-E135 is passive cooled requiring no CPU fan in most applications thereby reducing costsfor maintenance and potential fan failures in the field.
A choice of enclosure covers is available for the DPX-E135 depending on the customer’s preference and local requirements. The system can be supplied with no cover, a short cover with casino grade lock to secure the logic/storage area, or a full length cover that covers both logic and cable/IO areas.
A full feature set of I/O and COMs designed specifically for gaming devices is also included and the system is compatible with Advantech’s software solutions for security, media validation, SAS and diagnostics.
A wide variety ofstorage devices are supported including SATA DOM, C-Fast, SD card, USB drive and the system has a built in easy-service tray for 2.5” SATA SSDs.
The DPX-E135 is the ideal integrated platform for many gaming, amusement and kiosk applications calling for a cost-effective, high performance, passive cooled gaming platform.

Craig Stapleton, Advantech’s Product Director, commented, “ Our DPX- E series products are designed to fulfill all the regulatory requirements for GLI, Nevada, etcbutat a cost point to fit tight budgets. The new DPX-E135 is a robust, high performance gaming platform with the new “Cabinet-ready I/O” to further simplifyand reduce cost for our customers. Other gaming platforms require the customer to use separate backplanes or connector boards or come with inconvenient connectors in the wrong places and connectors that don’t perform well in a slot machine over its 5 plus years field life. We designed the DPX-E135 to include slot machine industry preferred connectors located in one area that is convenient for factory or field technicians”.
