hardware and software that are available for a PC platform. Thus, the Mobil-PC is an ideal choice for a
fully expandable computer at a reasonable system cost. The system can be upgraded, when required,
without loosing all the initial investment, unlike laptops.
The Mobile-PC is constructed with a heavy gauge aluminum sheet metal. The case is ruggedly built to
with stand the shock and vibration that are encountered in a tough mobile environment. The case is
designed with easy accessibility to I/Os, cables and CD/ DVD ROM Drive or removable Hard Drive.
The I/O connectors and cables are covered to protect it from accidental damage. The Mobile-PC has a
security lock to prevent unauthorized access inside the unit. The hard drive is protected from shock
and vibration by a specially designed isolation mount. A daughter card retain bracket is designed in
to prevent Cards from sliding out during shock and vibration.
The Mobile-PCs DC-DC Power supply has a micro-controller that controls and monitors various
functions of the power supply operation. It monitors automobile battery voltage to protect against deep
discharge. The Ignition lead is monitored to start the Mobile-PC when the ignition is turned on and to
implement a safe shutdown procedure. It controls and monitors motherboard signals to provide
smooth power-up and power down sequences. In addition, it also responds to shut down, stand-by
and hibernate modes. The power supply can be programmed to shut down the PC after a delay of up
to one hour. The power supply outputs are monitored to assure proper PC operation. A green LED
