The QIC Car PC is a measuring computer conceived for
in-vehicle testing programs. It is based on the Intel®
Pentium®M processor and offers in its durable
automotive housing the ideal platform for mobile data
acquisition and measurement tasks requiring a high
number of channels. The operating system, Windows®
XP Embedded, is loaded into non-volatile flash memory
to remove the potential shock damage that could occur
to a hard disk drive. Main memory is 512MB or 1GB of
fast DDR RAM. The configuration ensures a wide
range of industry standard software packages can be
used problem free.

Measurement data is stored on a front panel removable
CF Compact Flash® card. CF memory cards are at
present available with capacities up to 8GB giving                   For the on-line collection, display and processing of
