Large and Reliable 8GB LPDDR4x Memory
Upgraded with 8GB dual-channel LPDDR4x soldered memory brings the benefits with faster memory speeds at 3200MT/s, lower voltage and reliable hardware. It reduces the power consumption of the memory system by 18~20% through cutting output driver power by 50%, from 1.2 V to 0.6 V. It takes lesser space on-chip for better system airflow and shorten the trace for better signal transmission.
Stability is a necessity in applications where vibration is present. The soldered-on-board type enables the industrial panel PC to deliver much more stable, solid operation compared to the socket-type memory for critical usage such as transportation, AMR and other mobile applications.
The PPC2-C08's mechanical cut-out size is designed to be 100% compatible with the previous PPC-F-BT panel PC, offering an economical and easy replacement or upgrade solution. With the identical mechanical design, customers can directly upgrade to the latest technology without any need to modify the existing machine cabinets.
Front IP65 Ingress Protection
Water and dust ingress protection is crucial for harsh environments such as food processing factory where sanitation and cleanliness are required or the daily cleaning of automation. The PPC2-C08 has a rugged aluminum die-casting front bezel framed with strong waterproof gasket seal on the back to protect against pressure water. IEI prudent hardware design provides the following protective features:
- Dust-tight protection for maximum performance against flying dust, dirt, debris and other particulates
- High degree of protection against water ingress at least 3 minutes of water spraying from a 6.3-millimeter nozzle from any direction 8 Truly flat surface makes it easy to maintain and clean, and prevents water or liquid droplets from penetrating through the opening, or clogging dust on edges.
True Flat Surface with Industrial Grade TFT LCD

Robust PCAP Touch Screen Technology
IEI's rugged touchscreen adapts a glass-glass PCAP touch technology with integrated industrial-grade controllers, which is further developed to fulfill industrial capability. IEI industrial panel PCs with PCAP touchscreen allow customers to experience it using gloves in harsh environments such as food processing, chemical and beverage industries.
The optimization of the PCAP touch-sensitivity allows easy operation with thin rubber gloves or with work gloves. Moreover, the PCAP touchscreen is easy to clean, and requires no calibration after a period of operation.
PCAP touchscreens can display details precisely thanks to its optical clarity and high contrast ratios. With anti-glare and anti-UV coating, the touchscreen can display clearly with no reflection and scratches after a long time use in outdoors and bright light environment.
Having good resistance to permanent deformation of the screen surface is the key to maintaining a clear display. The PPC2-C-EHL series features 7H hardness glass that resists scratches from tools or other sharp objects. It can help enhance durability and touch precision for your industrial applications.
The screen equips a 10-point multi-touch screen that has the ability to recognize and respond to ten simultaneous points of contact. This feature allows developer to design applications where complex gesture is needed to operate, such as zoom, rotate, swipe or other actions that need two or more people to operate the same monitor at once.
With 87% high transmission rate, the image clarity and light transmission ensure great readability.
Outdoor applications mean exposure to direct sunlight and long-term exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light. It can easily affect PCAP panel appearance such as cracking and hazing of top glass hard coat, or varying degrees of yellowing and bubbling. Thus, IEI offers a UV-resistant PCAP touch solution to equip outdoor industrial systems exposed to direct long-term sunlight with the following anti-UV characteristics.
- Blocks UV wavelengths less than ≈340nm
- Meets ASTM G154 performance criteria Cycle 1
AI Acceleration Enhances Machine Learning at the Rugged Edge
With the M.2 2280 B-key socket and PCI Express® 3.0 x2 signals, edge AI deployments can be achieved by integrating a low-power Movidius™ Myriad™ X VPU module with an IEI industrial-grade IP65 panel PC to process deep learning and AI inference analysis, and enhance diverse vision inference applications such as facial recognition, vehicle registration plate recognition, and many other machine vision workloads in real-time.
*IEI Mustang-M2BM-MX2 AI module is optional
NVMe SSD Powers Inference and Analysis
Compared to a SATA SSD drive, an NVMe-based drive can write to disk up to 2x faster. Thus, the NVMe system is a great solution to enable applications that require real-time data processing and analysis, such as autonomous vehicles, machine learning, surveillance and industrial automation.
Tool-less M.2 Installation
The two M.2 slots both contain a quick-release retainer, allowing tool-less installation and removal of an M.2 module. With just a simple press of the retainer, the module can be securely seated into the slot or be released.

Dual 2.5GbE Low Latency LAN Ports Boost for Your Applications
▪ Network Redundancy
With dual LAN port configuration, network redundancy is achieved through the addition of alternate network paths, which are implemented through redundant standby routers and switches. When the primary path is unavailable, the alternate path can be instantly deployed to ensure minimal downtime and continuity of network services.
▪ 2.5GbE Higher Bandwidth
2.5GbE is 2.5 times faster than standard Ethernet (1GbE), increasing network performance to boost productivity. Higher bandwidth allows connecting to devices that need intensive bandwidth, like high-resolution cameras and video streaming on playback quality of 4K/8K videos.
▪ Multiple Device Connections
The two full-speed 2.5 GbE LAN ports provide the industrial panel PC with more bandwidth to handle multiple connections to sensors, high-resolution cameras, the Internet, and other IoT devices with Ethernet connection.
High Speed 10Gbps USB Integration
The PPC2-C08 industrial panel PC boasts several generations of USB connections to accommodate data traffic needs of a variety of peripheral technologies. It has two USB 2.0 ports and two USB 3.2 (Gen 2) ports for rapid 10 Gbps transfers.
4K HDMI™ Dual Independent Display
Featuring the latest Intel® UHD Graphics with 16 EUs, the panel PC can connect with a second display via the HDMI™ port to deliver powerful hard decoding capability and pixel-accurate 4K resolution.
IEI's tBIOS allows users to navigate with finger on a touch-enabled monitor to make BIOS configuration easily. It helps eliminate excessive steps and unnecessary keyboard connection.
Various Mounting Methods to Best Fit Your Needs
The PPC2-C08 features a 75 x 75mm VESA-mountable design that allows you to mount the display on a monitor stand or on a wall, depending on your specific needs. In addition, IEI developed a brand new way for panel mounting. It requires fewer clamps and can be easily fastened by hand.
Customizable I/O Interface Simplifies Functionality Expansion
The motherboard of the PPC2-C-EHL series has an expansion slot on the board edge. It is used to connect with an I/O board to add extra inputs including M.2 slot, serial ports and USB ports, depending on model size. This modular design strongly enhances its flexibility in ODM/OEM projects. Without re-designing the motherboard from the ground up, adding functionality such as network, serial ports or CAN bus becomes a much easier task when compared to the traditional design.
To verify the rugged design, experienced IEI team will conduct the MIL-STD test with our own qualified laboratory. Ruggedness and durability testing items as following are subject the industrial panel PC to harsh environment.
