BC50M - Box PC for In-Vehicle Applications
The BC50M (formerly called BC1) is a maintenance-free box computer that has
been designed for independent use or as display computer electronics for use in
vehicles, e.g. in trains, commercial vehicles, mobile machines or airplanes.
It is powered by an AMD Embedded G-Series APU (Accelerated Processing Unit),
the T48N, running at 1.4 GHz. The G-Series combines low-power CPUs and
advanced GPUs, in this case an AMD Radeon™ HD 6310, into a single embedded
device. The use of the Embedded G-Series makes for high scalability in CPU
(single/dual core) and graphics performance (various Radeon™ GPUs or none at
all).
The BC50M is equipped with 2 GB of DDR3 SDRAM and offers SD card and
mSATA slots. A SATA hard-disk/solid-state drive can be installed within the
housing as an option. The system is designed for fanless operation at temperatures
from -40 to +70°C (+85°C for up to 10 minutes), its special aluminum housing with
cooling fins serves as a heatsink for the internal electronics and in this way provides
conduction cooling.
The BC50M supports up to two DisplayPort® interfaces with a maximum
resolution of 2560x1600 each. The DisplayPort® interfaces and all other I/O are
available at the unit's front panel on standard connectors like USB, 9-pin D-Sub
(HD audio and optional serial I/O), 8-pin M12 (Gigabit Ethernet) and
DisplayPort®. On the inside, the system offers two PCI Express® Mini card slots
with two SIM card slots. By default, one is used for each of the two PCI Express®
Mini cards, but the first PCI Express® Mini card can also switch between the two
SIM cards as an option. The necessary antenna connectors can be made available at
the front panel.
The BC50M comes with an integrated 30W wide-range DC/DC converter and is
compliant with EN 50155 (nominal input voltages 24 and 36 V) and prepared for E1
certification (nominal input voltages 12 and 24 V). The power can be switched on
and off using an ignition signal on the power connector, and a shutdown-delay time
after switching off the power can be adjusted by software.
The combination of the various CPU/GPU options with the available selection of
external interfaces (realized via separate graphics and I/O interface boards within
the system) makes for an extremely flexible system design that can quickly be
tailored to a vast number of applications.

About this Document
RoHS
Since July 1, 2006 all MEN standard products comply with RoHS legislation.
Since January 2005 the SMD and manual soldering processes at MEN have already been completely lead-free.
Between June 2004 and June 30, 2006 MEN’s selected component suppliers have changed delivery to RoHScompliant parts. During this period any change and status was traceable through the MEN ERP system and the
boards gradually became RoHS-compliant.
WEEE Application
The WEEE directive does not apply to fixed industrial plants and tools. The compliance is the responsibility of the
company which puts the product on the market, as defined in the directive; components and sub-assemblies are
not subject to product compliance.
In other words: Since MEN does not deliver ready-made products to end users, the WEEE directive is not
applicable for MEN. Users are nevertheless recommended to properly recycle all electronic boards which have
passed their life cycle.
Nevertheless, MEN is registered as a manufacturer in Germany. The registration number can be provided on
request.

Functional Description
The following describes the individual functions of the system and their
configuration. There is no detailed description of the individual controller chips and
the CPU. They can be obtained from the data sheets or data books of the
semiconductor manufacturer concerned (Chapter 7.1 Literature and Web Resources
on page 59).
3.1
Power Supply
The BC50M is supplied with a nominal input voltage of 24 VDC or 36 VDC (10 to
50.4 V input voltage range) according to EN 50155 via a 3-pin COMBICON
connector. Other input voltage ranges can be implemented on request.
The onboard power supply generates all the necessary internal voltages.
Connector type:
• 3-pin COMBICON receptacle (Phoenix Contact 1843800 MC 1,5/ 3-GF-3,5)
Mating connector:
• 3-pin COMBICON plug, e.g., Phoenix Contact 1863314 MCVR 1,5/ 3-STF-3,5

Functional Description
3.1.1
Ignition
Using the ignition pin, the start-up and shut-down of the BC50M can be controlled.
The ignition pin (pin 3) can be permanently connected to the power input pin (pin
1). In this case the BC50M is starting up as soon as the supply voltage is connected
and shut down as soon as the supply voltage is disconnected.
If the ignition pin (pin 3) is connected to the power input pin (pin 1) via a switch or
a controller, switching on and off of the BC50M can be controlled without having to
disconnect the power supply. A shut-off delay can be set so that the operating
system of the BC50M can shut down in a controlled way.
When the ignition pin is connected to VBAT, the BC50M is switched off at once
without a delay for shutting down the operating system.
3.2
Real-Time Clock
The BC50M is equipped with a real-time clock integrated in the chipset. For data
retention during power-off, the RTC is backed up by a Gold Cap that gives an
autonomy of approx. 12 hours (as an option 72 hours) when fully loaded. Under
normal conditions, replacement should be superfluous during lifetime of the board.

Ethernet Interface
Each of the two controllers has its own EEPROM to store the MAC address etc.
!
The unique MAC address is set at the factory and should not be changed. Any
attempt to change this address may create node or bus contention and thereby render
the board inoperable. The naming of the interfaces may differ depending on the
operating system. The MAC addresses on BC50M are:
• ETH1:
• ETH2:
0x 00 C0 3A B1 Cx xx
to
0x 00 C0 3A B1 FF FF
0x 00 C0 3A B2 xx xx
to
0x 00 C0 3A B2 3F FF
where "00 C0 3A" is the MEN vendor code and "B1" and "B2" are the MEN
product codes. The last four digits depend on the interface and the serial number of
the BC50M’s system core board. Its serial number is added to the offset, for
example for ETH1:
Serial number 0042 (0x2A): 0x C0 00 + 0x 00 2A = 0x C0 2A.
Please note that due to the structure of the BC50M, the serial number of the unit’s
system core board is different from the serial number of the entire BC50M unit. For
the unit’s overall serial number please refer to Chapter 1.5 Product Identification on
page 22.
Connector type:
• 8-pin M12 receptacle, female, A-coded 90° (Phoenix Contact 1436974 SACCDSIV-FS-8CON-L90 SCO)

Serial Interfaces via SA-Adapter
The BC50M offers the possibility to provide two serial interfaces at the front of the
BC50M using MEN standard SA-Adapters. This way, a serial interface can be used
which can be flexibly configured as needed.
SA-Adapter slot 1 can be used for UART, IBIS, GPS or SGPIO while slot 2 can be
used for UART or CAN bus functionality (for CAN bus functionality a special
product version is required).
If you use the 08SA15-00 SA-Adapter with SGPIO functionality in slot 1 you have
to change a setting in the FPGA to switch from UART to SGPIO. See Chapter 5.2
GPIO Controller Instance 2 on page 56.

Cleaning the System
The system should be cleaned once a year. Clean the bottom and top plate, remove
dirt and dust from air ventilation holes. Light dirt can be removed with a dry cloth.
Persistent dirt should only be removed with a mild detergent and a soft cloth.
Take care that no liquid gets inside the system.
